Azamara claims new cruising benchmark

“This is real industry-leading stuff for how cruise lines move forward”
Azamara Club Cruises is to call at a record number of ports in 2019, including Canada and Alaska for the first time, TTG Digital reports.
There will be 11 Alaska sailings on Azamara Quest and a joint fam trip with Rocky Mountaineer is planned to showcase Canada and Alaska to agents in 2019, with full details yet to be confirmed.
“For this market, Canada and Alaska were the most requested destinations that we didn’t already feature,” said Richard Twynam, Azamara Club Cruises’ UK and Ireland managing director.
Azamara’s Journey and Quest ships will feature 250 ports in 69 countries, including the Philippines for the first time and a total of 45 maiden calls.
Mike Pawlus, director for strategic itinerary and destination planning, said Azamara would also “hang its hat around” world cultural and sporting events.
Cruises will tie in with a range of major events such as the Monaco and Barcelona Grand Prix, the L’Armada Rouen tall ships event and the British Open in Portrush, making its return to Northern Ireland for the first time since 1953.
There will also be a big focus on promoting nine “country-intensive” cruises to New Zealand, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Spain, France, Italy, Croatia and Greece.
“This deployment is real industry-leading stuff and a new benchmark for how cruise lines move forward,” Twynam said.
