Azamara Club Cruises, the upmarket cruise line subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., is expanding its fleet with the delivery of the new ship Azamara Pursuit scheduled for March 2018.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, which is allowing us to visit even more regions of the world,” said Azamara Club Cruises president and CEO Larry Pimentel. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have been asking for this expansion for a long time; we are very happy to be able to deliver this to them,” he added.
The Azamara Pursuit is comparable in size to the existing Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. As such, it will also allow visits to unique ports that larger ships are unable to reach. Together, the three ships will support the brand’s commitment to enrich destination immersion around the world, by staying longer in port to allow guests to experience more.
The ship’s décor will be updated to match the brand’s upmarket position. These updates will be similar to the renovations recently introduced on the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, bringing guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea.
Information about deployment and itineraries for Azamara Pursuit will be available in October 2017.
Azamara Club Cruises’ wide selection of “destination immersion” signature programming offers guests the opportunity to stay longer and experience more, delivering guests authentic cultural experiences across the globe. In 2018, Azamara will take guests to more than 200 ports, in 70 countries, including 170 late night stays and 114 overnights.
