Just like that, we’re officially halfway through 2021, and we’re so pleased to welcome you back aboard soon. With this long-awaited milestone underway, we have so many exciting announcements and updates to share.

Last month, booking opened for our new Greek Country-Intensive Voyages aboard Azamara Quest®, stopping in incredible ports like Mykonos, Santorini, and Patmos. This month, we announced exciting 2022 itineraries of our newest addition to the fleet, Azamara Onward®, offering our most in-depth travel opportunities yet.

We’ve been busy behind the scenes, making sure your first voyage back with us is a memorable, seamless experience. Like many of us, we’ve made some changes to make getting together again possible. We’re proud to have launched Explore Well at Sea, our thorough new health and safety standards for peace of mind sailing.

We’ve also reimagined some of our onboard events to continue to deliver the Azamara experience you have known to love. We’re introducing Destination Celebration, a temporary adaptation to our signature Azamazing Evenings, and we’ve transformed our White Night party into a multi-venue celebration. And for you, our cruise enthusiasts, loyalty events have evolved into a new ship-wide happy hour.

Most of all, thank you for being such an essential part of our Azamara family and for continuing to support us even while we’re not at sea. We look forward to many memorable voyages together and can’t wait to see what the second half of the year brings.

    Destination Celebration℠

    Introducing Destination Celebration℠, a temporary adaptation of our AzAmazing Evenings®.

    Loyalty Happy Hour

    Psst—loyalty members, our original loyalty onboard events have merged into something extra exciting: a members-only happy hour complete with a secret menu and cocktail list, specially created for our circle members. As we continue to grow, this event was designed with your safety in mind.

  • Reimagined Onboard Experiences

    White Night

    This favorite Azamara event has transformed into a ship-wide celebration of alfresco dining, all-night dancing, and boutique wine sipping. Expanding the festivities beyond the Pool Deck, you’ll be invited to take the party into a multi-venue mix of the Cabaret Lounge, the Living Room, and The Den. It’s truly an experience that only comes once a voyage.

    Sample Greek Desserts & Delicacies

    Taste the spirit of greek culture. A must-try while visiting Grecian ports, Baklava is a popular dessert made with phyllo pastry, walnuts, and honey. And, of course, you'll need something to wash down your food. Sip locally produced wine and beer during your trip, as well as ouzo, an anise-flavored aperitif. And on those hot afternoons, cool off with a frappe iced coffee.

  • Hit the Beach

    Hit the Beach

    From soft, white sand to red, rocky cliffs—Greece is the destination for a sun-soaked vacation. In Mykonos, travel to the southern coast of the island and spend the day at beautiful Ornos Beach among the sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea. Try parasailing above the sparkling waters of Kambos Beach in Patmos, or rent a sunbed for the day. In Crete, Elafonisi (just a short drive from the main port of Chania) is famous for its photogenic pink sand and bright turquoise waters.

  • Explore Orthodox Monasteries and Churches

    Explore Orthodox Monasteries and Churches

    A tour of Greece’s countless Orthodox Monasteries and Churches not only offers a glimpse into Greek daily life but also rewards travelers with incredible scenery. Discover the Panagia Ekatontapiliani in Paros, one of the best-preserved churches in Greece. A visit to the stunning Monasteries of Meteora is a must while in Volos, and exploring the Monastery of Giromeriou, perched high up on the slopes of the mountains of Epirus in the coastal city of Igoumenitsa, is unforgettable.

  • Stay Somewhere Unique

    Linger longer in Greece pre or post-voyage. Surrounded by thousands of islands and endless miles of coastlines, accommodations in this Mediterranean paradise go far beyond the usual. Settle into a boutique cave hotel in postcard-perfect Santorini or stay in a preserved traditional windmill in Milos. Live luxuriously in a 5-star villa on the coast, or opt for loft-style lodging in the heart of Athens.
