February 24, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Azamara Journey is set to make waves when the boutique 690-guest liner arrives in Hobart for the first time on 24 February 2017.

Azamara Club Cruises’ second luxury ship is fresh from an extensive multi-million dollar makeover and delivers Azamara’s unique destination immersive style of cruising, with late night and overnight stays in ports and an expanded land offering, so guests can stay longer and experience more.

“We are very excited to be welcoming Azamara Journey to Australia for the first time. She is a completely new ship compared to her sisterAzamara Quest who made her debut last summer, after a $25 million make over in April,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Azamara Club Cruises Australia & NZ.

“We worked with several of the world’s leading designers to ensure she not only looks and feels incredible, but also offer all the modern amenities our discerning travellers expect.”

The all-encompassing refresh saw Azamara Journey’s 345 Suites and Staterooms undergo an elegant and sophisticated redesign. Beautiful newSpa Suites, located adjacent to the refreshed Sanctum Spa have been added, offering exclusive spa amenities. Each bathroom of these coveted suites is like a mini spa; showers have glass walls offering spectacular views while the outdoor soaking tub overlooks the ocean.

As well as completely reimagined public spaces and staterooms, additional new features include The Patio, an al fresco poolside dining area; The Living Room, a casual bar, dining and entertainment room with beautiful views; and new pervasive Wi-Fi with faster speeds to accommodate streaming.

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 see 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 will deliver personalised and authentic experiences, by day and night.

The 690-guest Azamara Journey arrives in Hobart at 6.30pm as part of her 16-night New Zealand voyage. She’ll stayed docked in the city overnight, with Azamara’s signature night touring on offer as well as the cruises lines’ complimentary AzAmazing Evening event – An Evening Performance at Mona with Mark Vincent.

She’ll depart at 6pm on Saturday 25 February, with her maiden visit to Hobart expected to inject almost $230,000 into the local economy while her Australian season will see more than $2.85 million injected into the national economy in passenger spend alone.

Azamara Journey returns to Hobart again on Sunday 19 March 2017.
