Azamara Club Cruises reveals further details about ship upgrade
Azamara Club Cruises, the up-market line delivering an unmatched experience at sea and on land, unveiled today new design plans for its suites and staterooms as part of the line’s program to Reimagine Azamarawhile in dry dock early next year. The boutique cruise line will debut in Australia for the first time this year, whenAzamara Quest arrives in late December. Sister ship Azamara Journey will then sail local waters for the 2016/17 season, fresh from her refurbishment next year.
“Azamara is all about Destination Immersion and we spend more time in ports at night and stay overnight to ensure our guests can spend enough time in the destination to come away with an authentic experience. Our AzAmazing Evenings, Nights and Cool Places, Insider Access and Cruise Global, Eat Local are just a few of the programs we provide guests to make the most of their time in port,” says Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises.
“When our guests return to the ship, we recognize the importance of offering accommodations that provide a respite from their adventures and functions like a moving upscale hotel. Keeping all areas of our ships contemporary in design as well as offering services and amenities that match is paramount. This is why we are so excited to dig into every aspect of our onboard offerings during this upcoming dry dock period.”
Azamara has contracted several of the world’s leading design consultants for the hospitality, leisure and entertainment industries, to help transform the suites and staterooms into modern oases at sea. As design teams undertake the ship project, they look to bring the style and comforts travellers look for in travel to the high seas. Partnering with the design teams, Azamara participated in the very detailed process to choose colours and mood palates along with overall furnishings and fabrics. The result will be an overall ambiance that is comfortable as well as timeless and elegant. Authentic materials will be used, with beautiful stone and porcelain throughout and custom designed built-ins. The colours that were selected will be dusted and faded adding to the overall theme.
Additionally, the bathrooms will get an overhaul making them a much more efficient use of space. Guests will enjoy all of the new amenities while relaxing before dinner or preparing for another day of touring in the next amazing destination.
