Due to their smaller size (each ship carries less than 700 guests), Azamara’s ships visit corners of the world that larger ships can’t reach. Azamara is known for spending more time in each port, often including late-night visits or overnights in port. They provide a country club feeling with included bottled water, soft drinks, select spirits, gratuities, concierge service and AzAmazing Evenings. These complimentary bespoke events give travelers the opportunities to experience local culture through musical performances or cultural and culinary events. Both of Azamara’s ships are being refurbished in 2016 with newly-designed public spaces, upgrades to all staterooms, suites and restaurants, and a new holistic Sanctum Spa.
