With just days until Azamara Club Cruises make their first voyage to Australia with Azamara Quest, the line has confirmed it has committed to a second and third season down under, including a 2018 World Journey voyage from Sydney to London.
Details of the 2018 Australia/New Zealand itineraries were released today. The Azamara Journey will kick off the 2018 Azamara Australia season with a repositioning voyage from Asia via the West Coast and bottom end of Australia to Sydney, with her first cruise including maiden calls at Exmouth, Fremantle (Perth), Bunbury, Albany, Esperance, Kangaroo Island and Adelaide.
Azamara Journey will then offer three local sailings:
- A 14-night Tasmania & New Zealand sailing from Sydney to Auckland departing 8 February 2018
- A 13-night Australia & New Zealand voyage from Auckland to Sydney departing 22 February 2018
- An 18-night Australia to Asia sailing from Sydney to Singapore departing 7 March 2018, which also includes a maiden call at the Whitsunday Islands.
“We are thrilled to add 31 new and unique destinations for the brand in 2018 including 10 new ports in Australia,” said Adam Armstrong, commercial director of Azamara Club Cruises Australia.
Azamara Quest will also return to Australia in December 2018 for her second season sailing in the region. Azamara Quest will sail from Singapore to Fremantle on a 16-night voyage via the Java Sea and West Australia, which includes maiden calls at Broome and Geraldton. The ship will then offer a 15-night Christmas & New Year’s cruise to Melbourne that includes an overnight docked in beautiful Sydney Harbour for their famous New Year’s Eve celebrations.
For the first time Azamara Club Cruises will offer an epic 102 day World Journey from Sydney to London. The voyage, which commences on 7 March 2018 onboard Azamara Journey, will call at 61 ports in 29 countries without repeating a single port. Highlights of the 2018 World Journey will be overnights in Cannes for the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco for the Monaco Grand Prix. The Azamara Journey will arrive in London on 17 June 2018. Guests booking the full 102-day trip package receive free internet, $1,000 per person shipboard credits, a free bag of laundry every seven days and excess luggage reimbursement up to $500 per person.
