The 30,277 GRT, 686-guest Azamara Quest, like its sister ship Azamara Journey, has been completely refitted with new venues and technologies, including new luxurious Spa Suites, transformation of the Pool Grill area into a beautiful sit-down al fresco dining venue as well as reimagined restaurants, lounges and furniture.
In Singapore for its dry-dock, Azamara Club Cruises’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Americas, Ellen Bettridge said, “We have employed some of the world’s leading design consultants for the hospitality, leisure and entertainment industries for our refurbishment, to help transform our Azamara Quest into a modern oasis at sea with a tasteful blend of contemporary, classic elements inspired by nature. This will surely take our ship and brand to the next level.
“We look forward to impressing all our guests with a diverse range of experiences Azamara is renowned for – from the ship’s new look to the many attractive destinations that appeal strongly to travellers,” she said.
All staterooms and suites have had an overhaul creating a comfortable, timeless and elegant ambience. Two new Spa Suites, with an elegant look and organic, muted colours, have been built adjacent to the Sanctum Spa to provide exclusive access to unique spa amenities included in the price of these staterooms. The Club World Ocean and Owner’s Suites have also been fully redesigned.
Onboard Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, guests receive exceptional and personal service and enjoy fine cuisine and boutique wines from around the world, as well as more inclusive amenities, such as included gratuities; complimentary bottled water, sodas, specialty coffee, and teas, as well as complimentary boutique wines, international beers and select standard spirits in the ships’ bars, lounges and restaurants when open; complimentary self-service laundry; English Butler service for suite guests; and shuttle transportation to city centres in ports, where available. Azamara Club Cruises is also renowned for its “Destination Immersion” experience, offering longer stays, more overnights and the opportunity for night touring.
Azamara Quest’s identical sister ship, Azamara Journey underwent the same extensive make over earlier this year. Azamara Journey will make her Australian debut this coming summer season, when she arrives down under in early February 2017. Azamara Club Cruises has also recently confirmed Azamara Quest andAzamara Journey will both return to Australia during 2018.
