The Details

Azamara Club Cruises

In 2016, as part of the company’s “Reimagine” initiative, Azamara Club Cruises is scheduling major enhancements — from bow to stern, including dining, spa, public areas and accommodations — for the 686-passenger Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest while the ships are in dry dock.

Azamara, which has been very successful in stressing its mission to have guests experience destinations in-depth, is drawing on the locales to which it sails for colors and textures onboard and creating a more modern look throughout the ships.

Emphasizing authentic materials, the company is contrasting textures from stone to porcelain throughout the ships and adding custom-designed built-ins. Bathrooms will get an overhaul, and Club World Ocean and Owner's Suites will receive updated furnishings and sound and lighting systems. 

Two new additions are spa suites, adjacent to Sanctum Spa, which feature organic and muted colors. The bathroom shower and tub will have a view of the water, and guests who are staying in these suites will have access to unique spa amenities that will be included in the price of these staterooms. The spa itself will be renamed The Sanctum, with a new emphasis on holistic health and beauty. It will have a private terrace for some al fresco spa services, along with an acupuncture clinic.

Club Continent Suites will have new soft furnishings, and all other accommodations will have new blackout curtains, bed linens, furniture, carpeting, lighting and a complete bathroom modernization. 

Azamara Journey will enter dry dock in January 2016 in the Bahamas, and Azamara Quest will enter dry dock in April 2016 in Singapore.
