Azamara Cruises recently added the refurbished cruise ship Azamara Quest to its fleet, which will conduct cruises in the Mediterranean with Pireaus as the port of embarkation or disembarkation, from June to November 2008.
The Azamara Quest has a capacity for 694 passengers and will run 15-day cruises in the eastern Mediterranean: Italy, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt and the Black Sea. Azamara cruises offers a butler service for every cabin and suite, fresh fruit and flowers, personal hygiene products by Elemis, and every cabin has an en-suite bathroom, flat screen television, mini bar and autonomous climate control.
Initially, Lavrio Port was also considered as a point of embarkation and disembarkation for cruises in the Mediterranean, but following discussions with Greek and foreign passengers, it was decided that Pireaus Port would be more appropriate.
Greek destinations included are Heraklio, Chios, Santorini, Nafplio, Githeio and Itea.
Navigator travel and Tourist Services is the general sales agent for Azamara cruises in Greece.
