Azamara Club Cruises has started up 15 new AzAmazing Evenings. The brand’s signature evening events are designed to connect guests to the local culture of a destination. AzAmazing Evenings are unique to each location and include local talent and performances. These are, in many instances, hosted in historic venues, like The Odeon of Ancient Ephesus in Turkey and The Solìs Theatre in Uruguay.
Events within the new AzAmazing evenings program include:
Lura at Pateo Da Gale
Leaving from Barcelona on May 28, 2019, guests sailing on the 14-night Tall Sails and Remembrance Voyagewill travel down Lisbon’s cobblestone streets to Terreiro do Paço. Guests will receive cocktails upon arrival, after which they will listen to the rhythms of colonial-rooted Funana—an upbeat, accordion-based type of music—performed by Portuguese singer and musician Lura. The A Toca Rufar Orchestra will demonstrate the sounds of Bombo—a traditional Portuguese bass drum.
A Musical Tribute to the Knights of Rhodes
Setting sail on June 19, 2019, guests on the 10-night Greece Intensive Voyage will explore knighthood through music at the Grand Master’s Palace—a building created in the 7th century as a Byzantine Citadel and held by the Crusaders—in Rhodes, Greece. Travelers will traverse the site’s towers, walls and torch-lit hallways, eventually becoming audience members of a musical tribute to the Knights of Rome performed by a four-piece classical orchestra with tenor and soprano.
Traditional Korean Performance at Busan Culture Center
Departing on August 21, 2019, the 14-night Circle Japan Intensive Voyage will provide passengers an exclusive evening at the Busan Cultural Center—a venue dedicated to showing Korean heritage, music and art—in Busan, South Korea. Commencing with a cocktail hour, guests will watch as local experts perform time-honored, Korean folk dances and demonstrate the art of taekwondo.
AzAmazing Evenings are complimentary, held once a voyage and encouraged to be reserved prior to departure date. AzAmazing Evenings are offered on sailings of seven nights or longer, except for transatlantic voyages.
Azamara Club Cruises will announce the list of 2020 and 2021 AzAmazing Evenings in June 2019.
