Forget the tourist traps and overcrowded “hotspots!” Azamara Club Cruises, the up-market boutique cruise line that brings guests to the most desirable and remote port destinations worldwide, announced a new dining program designed to please the finickiest of pallets.
Now, guests can participate in Azamara’s new Cruise Global, Eat Local program boasting meals at a deliciously curated selection of local restaurants affording guests to eat where locals love to eat.
“Azamara offers guests true destination immersion through our Land Discoveries, AzAmazing Evenings, Nights & Cool Places and Insider Access programs,” says Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Through Cruise Global, Eat Local, we are yet again taking our destination expertise to the next level by bringing guests to the best and most authentic local restaurants while in ports of call across the globe. Guests are always asking our concierges where to dine once in port and where the locals like to eat. This program is the answer!”
Cruise Global, Eat Local is kicking off in Europe this summer including 35 restaurant recommendations across 27 European ports including La Gomera, Canary Islands; Split, Croatia; Santorini, Greece; Sorrento, Italy; Barcelona, Spain; and Marseille, France. Each destination offers an authentic local dining experience that will satisfy the most discerning of palates and provide an inside taste of the local culture.
There are three ways to enjoy this destination experience with Azamara Club Cruises:
- Pair lunch with a tour — Following select half-day excursions, coaches journey to the selected Cruise Global, Eat Local restaurant for the ultimate in destination immersion dining experience.
- Take a private car — Azamara will arrange private transportation to and from the restaurant.
- Go independently — Azamara will help the guest select a restaurant to enjoy. Restaurants are within proximity of the ship.
Boutique cruise line Azamara Club will also debut in Australia later this year, when Azamara Quest arrives in Darwin for the first time on 28 December 2015. During her inaugural season, Azamara Quest will offer five voyages ranging from 10- to 17-nights, stopping in a number of ports such as Darwin, Newcastle and Cairns. Azamara Club will also sail in the region for the next two consecutive seasons, with Azamara Journeycoming for the first time in 2017 and Azamara Quest returning in 2018.
