Azamara Club Cruises just named a big new partner for its 2016 portfolio of Destination Immersion Australia and New Zealand land tours in 2016: For the first time, Abercrombie & Kent will operate the itineraries.

The lineup of over 75 excursions will range from Insider Access events aimed at immersing guests in the local lifestyle to Nights and Cool Places, after-sunset tours of local hotspots, as well as AzAmazing Evenings, complimentary nights of cultural entertainment. 

For example, Kazu and the Cultured Pearls of Friday Island will see guests journey to Friday Island, a remote island in the Torres Strait, to visit the Kazu Pearls farm and see pearl culture and enjoy a Japanese lunch. The Crocodile Watch River Cruise in Port Douglas, Australia, will offer a chance to spot crocs on a float along the mangrove channels of Dickson Inlet on a traditional paddleboat with cocktails and music. The Parade Grounds At Fort Scratchley in Newcastle, Australia, will offer guests the chance to enjoy didgeridoo, jazz instrumentals and singing by the Australian James Morrison and others at historic Fort Scratchley with a fireworks finale. In Hobart, Tasmania, travelers can listen to a performance by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, plus meet the orchestra, as part of the A Night with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra experience.
