Azamara Adds Four Culturally Immersive Voyages in 2023-24

Azamara has launched four new voyages, each offering unique and immersive cultural experiences that will take guests even deeper into the heart of a destination. With more time to explore through “Extended Destination Days,” offering 10 or more hours in port, and overnight stays, guests can enjoy each city at their own pace. The sailings include local festivities in such countries as Spain, Portugal, Singapore, Vietnam, and beyond.

The new itineraries are now available to book and include:

  • The seven-night “Asian Holiday Voyage” aboard Azamara Journey sets sail from Singapore on December 5, 2023 and offers 92 hours in port. Guests can enjoy two overnight stays in Ho Chi Minh City to stroll through local markets ahead of the Vietnamese festival celebrating the Lunar New Year, Tet Nguyen Dan. Guests will also have an overnight stay in Singapore to attend Christmas on Great Street, with sparkling lights, decorations and local holiday performances.
  • The seven-night “St. Patrick’s Day Iberian Voyage” onboard Azamara Pursuit will sail from Lisbon on March 16, 2024, offering guests 80 hours in port.
