Azamara Club Cruises’ latest Australian ship, Azamara Journey departs for her final Australian cruise today, wrapping up her maiden season. Her inaugural visit Down Under saw almost 2,600 guests from the USA, UK, Canada, Germany and Australia experience Azamara’s unique destination immersion style of cruising, injecting an estimated $2.85 million into the local Australian economy in passenger spend alone.

Azamara Club Cruises’ second boutique-hotel cruise ship arrived in late February fresh from an extensive multi-million dollar makeover, delivering Azamara’s unique destination immersive style of cruising that offers longer stays and more authentic travel experiences, all while travelling in style on an intimate 690-guest cruise ship..

“It’s been wonderful introducing Azamara Journey to Australia for the first time. She has been incredibly well received and completely booked out.  She’s clearly impressed Australians -half of her staterooms for next year’s season are already booked.” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Azamara Club Cruises Australia & NZ.

Over 2600 guests sailed on board Azamara Journey during her first season Down Under. Her 18-night Sydney to Singapore sailing departing today, 22 March, is her most popular itinerary amongst Australians, with Aussies and Kiwis making up a third of guests cruising on the voyage.

Known for its focus on destination immersion, Azamara Club Cruises recently announced the evolution of this position with Stay Longer, Experience More – delivering opportunities for guests to personally connect with the destinations they visit. Azamara Journey’s maiden Australian season will saw more than half of all her port calls staying late into the evening or overnight, while her new Cruise Global, Connect Local land discoveries program delivered personalised and authentic experiences, by day and night.

Azamara Journey will return down under for a second season in January 2018. She’ll offer four local sailings during her season, including a brand new 18-night Bali to Sydney voyage via the West Coast of Australia departing 21 January 2018. This unique sailing offers maiden calls to Exmouth, Perth, Bunbury, Albany, Esperance, Kangaroo Island and Adelaide. Azamara Journey will also offer a 14-night Sydney to Auckland sailing, a 13-night Auckland to Sydney voyage and an 18-night Sydney to Singapore itinerary, which includes a call to Brisbane on 9 March 2018.
