About Azamara Club Cruises

Azamara has a lot going for it, from overnights in cool ports to plenty of freebies and special events — like private concerts — in key cities. Plus, longer calls and more overnights allow passengers to, say, linger in Mykonos after midnight or test their luck in the Monte Carlo Casino until dawn.

Expert review of Azamara Club Cruises

Best For

Azamara attracts couples who prefer medium- or small-ship cruising with a resort-casual dress code, as well as those who want to overnight in select ports, allowing for dinner ashore.

Not For

Families or intergenerational groups with teens or kids — Azamara's cabins, dining options, pool deck, and shore excursions are geared to a mature clientele.

We Love

  • AzAmazing Evenings — complimentary nighttime events in port — include concerts, gala receptions, and after-hours museum tours. 
  • Azamara's wide array of itineraries and destinations offered each year includes voyages between four and 17 nights, visiting 240 ports in 66 countries.
  • Complimentary house wines, beers, and spirits are served during regular bar hours — and you can upgrade to premium brands for a fee.
  • Free bottled water and chilled towels are offered in the fitness center.
  • Gratuities are included in the cruise fare.
  • The ships’ size: Both Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest each accommodate 688 passengers, making them never feel too crowded or too quiet — and allowing access to river ports such as Seville, Spain; Bangkok; Bordeaux, France; and Shanghai. 
  • The self-service laundry and resort-casual dress code make it easy to travel light.

We Could Live Without

  • The bathroom configurations of most Azamara staterooms are quite tight.
  • The pool and two hot tubs are small, although lounge chairs are plentiful.
  • Public spaces are dressed in fussy, country-club-like décor — especially the Drawing Room and Martini Bar — and include liberal use of dark brown and green marble.

What cruisers say

  • AnnaBenton says ...

    The staff was wonderful and really enjoy their jobs. They went out of their way to make sure that customers were catered too. Read full review
  • ElaineE1 says ...

    The only time we ever saw a crowd was when we first boarded and went to Windows restaurant for lunch. Read full review
  • Cruiser455 says ...

    Destinations were great. Our best excursions, though, were private ones we arranged. The ship's excursions have 40+ people per group, taking longer to load and unload and less time for seeing things. Read full review
