Gary Says...

“For me, Azamara offers a blithe seaborne venture fused with the allure of the destination. The company’s four ships are classy with plethora tantalising features. Attentive service and cuisine mark this niche cruise company out, but it is destination immersion, where the emphasis is on authentic local experiences and overnight stays, which is their undoubted hallmark. To hurry a cruise with Azamara would be to miss the point.”
