Glamping on the arid Bolivian Salt Flats, popping corks in Australian wine country and jaguar spotting in Brazil’s Panantal region – Azamara’s immersive voyages and land programmes cater to intrepid travellers, R&R seekers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

With the aim to connect guests to both renowned and off-the-beaten-track destinations, Azamara’s bijou ships dock at smaller, lesser-travelled ports, allowing you to discover your chosen destination from a viewpoint most cruise ships can’t reach – indeed, 62 per cent of the ports Azamara visits aren’t accessible for larger ships. Voyages to all seven continents are available, with destinations and itineraries to suit every type of traveller. The brand’s pioneering Country Intensive voyages are particularly standout, with each cruise focusing on a single destination and allowing you to truly get to the heart of your chosen country, whether that be Italy, Japan or Croatia, to name a few. The best part of travelling with Azamara is that the line ensures you spend as many overnights as possible in port so you get to experience the city like a local.

En route, you’ll be treated to a lap of luxury – Azamara’s three intimate ships are designed to mirror boutique hotels and have the service and amenities to match. Many of the onboard amenities are included in the price of the ticket, such as complimentary AzAmazing Evenings events, concierge services and a selection of fine wines and spirits. With AzAmazing Evenings, the line delivers authentic travel moments bringing you closer to your destination, its culture and its people. Experience the opulence of a night out at the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra, watch Maori culture come alive with a performance at the Te Papa Museum, or see acrobats soar in Monaco amongst other revelries.
