Boutique premium cruise line Azamara Club Cruises have announced the purchase of a third ship for their fleet. Azamara Pursuit will be sister ship to Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey. The new ship is scheduled to enter the fleet in March 2018.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”
The new ship, Azamara Pursuit, is comparable in size to Journey and Quest. In fact she is identical to the two R-class ships already in the Azamara Club Cruises fleet. All these vessels began their lives at the turn of the century with the discontinued Renaissance Cruises.
Together, the three ships will support the brand’s commitment to enrich destination immersion around the world, by staying longer in port to allow guests to experience more.
The company tell us the new ship décor will be updated to match the brand’s upmarket position. These updates will be similar to the renovations recently introduced on the Journey and Quest, bringing guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea.
