A cruise holiday is a quintessential vacation option, with activities to suit every taste, a multitude of dining options, exciting destinations and value for money. Each traveller is different and your cruising needs may differ if you’re setting sail alone, with your loved one or with the whole family.

Experience more than ever before aboard exclusive Azamara Cruises with their unique selling proposition: Destination Immersion. These prize-winning boutique ships enable guests to stay longer at each destination, without having to rush back in time for departure.

So if your idea of the perfect holiday is having your favourite drink handed to you as you sit back next to the pool, this is the cruise line for you.
