Celebrity Cruises introduced the Azamara Cruises to the world during 2007, when two former Renaissance Line cruises ships were transferred from Pullmantur Cruises to Celebrity Cruises after Pullmantur Cruises had been purchased by Royal Caribbean in 2006. Originally destined to be called Celebrity Journey and Celebrity Quest, they now cruise the world as Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
Azamara Club Cruises fill the niche for a Deluxe cruise line, being somewhere between the ultra luxury cruise lines such as Silversea Cruises and SeaDream Yacht Club and those of communal garden luxury of Celebrity Cruises themselves.
Being just 30,277 tons each, the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest are small enough to get into some of the somewhat smaller and recently under used ports of call that cruises love yet do not get the chance to visit when aboard the modern 100,000 ton plus giants that proliferate the cruising world today.
For all-round elegance onboard and a service equalled by only a few cruise lines Azamara Club Cruises offer their clients both an impeccable cruise and one that will not set them back as much as you would imagine.
