7 February 2017 – Boutique cruise line Azamara Club Cruises has created the ultimate Mediterranean cruise: a month long voyage to all of the gems of the Adriatic and Mediterranean, sailing at the warmest, most beautiful time of year. As if you needed any more temptation, Azamara Club is also offering a very special deal to those booking the indulgent 31-night voyage, with a generous Buy One, Get One Half Price and up to US$3,100 onboard spending money, and as an added perk for bookings in Oceanview Staterooms or above, guests receive unlimited internet access for one device.
“24 ports, eight countries, nine late nights, five overnight calls – including Azamara’s signature AzAmazing Evenings – makes for one magical month in the Mediterranean. Sailing a route that’s rich with natural beauty, culture, and history spanning the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical eras, showing off ruins and rivieras, castles, coastlines and canals – this truly is the ultimate Mediterranean cruise,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Azamara Club Cruises Australia and New Zealand.
Sailing on newly revitalised 690-guest Azamara Journey, the very special 31 nights in the Med Cruise depart Athens on 5 July 2017, then cruises to 24 ports in eight countries – Italy, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Slovenia, Monaco and Montenegro. The journey offers plenty of opportunities for guests to stay longer and experience more, including overnights in Barcelona and Ibiza, so guests can gaze at Gaudi’s masterpieces, indulge in traditional Catalonian fare, and then flamenco dance the night away. All the while, guests will be sailing in luxury and style thanks to Azamara Club Cruises’ signature boutique hotel atmosphere and friendly, attentive service.
The stand-out of the voyage is a three-night Venice visit, timed for the annual Redentore Festival. The extra-long call allows guests to fully immerse in the magnitude of its famous feasts, plus explore the endless canals and the vast piazzas of the City of Water. The Venice Redentore Festival (The Redeemer’s Feast) is a much-loved and spectacular two-day festival on the third weekend of July. Saint Mark’s basin is filled with boats festooned with balloons and garlands, and revellers watch the fireworks while dining on the boats.
Fares start from just $15,459 for the first guest and $7,949 for the second in an Interior Stateroom, twin share, when booked by 31 March 2017. Plus guests who book the full 31 days receive US$3,100 onboard spending money, to use to create an even more immersive Mediterranean experience onboard and on shore. Specialty onboard amenities and packages include everything from gourmet dining and premium drinks to luxurious spa services, or explore on shore with amazing excursion experiences.
The remarkable cruise lets travellers explore half the world from the comfort of a newly revitalised cruise ship, following a multi-million dollar revitalisation earlier this year that left no public space untouched, and all staterooms completely re-worked with a fresh and modern colour palette and brand new furnishings.
