On Board with Azamara
Journeys with Azamara Club Cruises are geared toward travelers age 45 and older. While Caribbean voyages attract younger crowds, longer itineraries attract retirees with more time to spare. Most cruises explore less-frequented ports of call – a benefit of the line's smaller ships.
Club Interior Staterooms occupy 158 square feet and come furnished with flat-screen TVs, minibars and two twin beds that can be converted into a queen-sized bed. Additional amenities include welcome fruit baskets, terry robes and 24-hour room service. These rooms lack windows and balconies, but they do have small sitting areas. Club Interior Staterooms are located on both the lower and higher decks of Azamara's ships.
Measuring an average of 143 square feet, Club Oceanview Staterooms can be found on middle and higher decks of the ship. They feature picture windows and come with all the amenities found in Club Interior Staterooms, including fresh-cut flowers and complimentary shoe shines. All Club Oceanview Staterooms have two twin beds that can be converted into a queen-sized bed to sleep two people, and some rooms also include sofa beds.
Club Veranda Staterooms are comparable to Club Oceanview Staterooms, but they also offer terraces that add an extra 40 square feet to the 175-square-foot accommodations. Beginning in 2020, Azamara will offer Club Veranda Plus Staterooms. These staterooms have the same measurements as the Club Veranda Staterooms, but they add perks like 120 minutes of complimentary internet, one free night of specialty dining for two and complimentary in-room spirits. In addition to the amenities found in the Club Interior and Club Oceanview staterooms, all Veranda category cabins boast floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, sitting areas (with a desk and sofa or sofa bed) and locations on the sixth, seventh and eighth decks.
All three ships are outfitted with four Club Suite category options: Club Continent Suites, Club Ocean Suites, Club Spa Suites and Club World Owner's Suites. They include butler service, complimentary seating at the ship's specialty restaurants, 240 complimentary internet minutes per guest and more. Club Continent Suites measure 266 square feet and come appointed with 60-square-foot verandas; some are equipped with bathtubs. Meanwhile, Club Ocean Suites span 478 square feet and feature separate master bedrooms with queen beds, living rooms, 173-square-foot verandas, dressing rooms and tubs.
For a little more pampering, consider booking a Club Spa Suite, which is situated next to the ship's Sanctum Spa. Along with a daily delivery of healthy snacks, guests in these suites receive a $300 onboard credit. Club Spa Suites measure 414 square feet and are equipped with a 60-foot veranda, a glass-enclosed bathtub and a separate rain shower. If you're seeking even more space, opt for a Club World Owner's Suite, which spans 603 square feet and has a 233-square-foot veranda (as well as the amenities of Club Ocean Suites).
What's Included in the Price
Gratuities for Housekeeping, Dining and Bar Staff
Azamara's onboard entertainment options are primarily geared toward older travelers. Expect to find low-key games in lounges and casinos, as well as cozy nooks in libraries and coffee bars. All three ships offer enrichment programs, too, like cooking demonstrations and a host of lectures and seminars. You'll have access to a spa, a full-service salon and a fitness center with a daily schedule of classes. Spa packages can be booked either in advance or during the first two days of your voyage, but you can only sign up for fitness classes once you are on board. If you prefer to get your exercise by way of shopping, check out the variety of onboard stores selling items that range from jewelry to sunscreen.
On each of the ships' upper decks, you'll find a pool, a pingpong table and a sun deck. If you can't find time to sit by the pool during the day, you'll have the chance to relax there during Azamara's poolside dinner party, typically held at least once per voyage. The Cabaret Lounge and Discoveries Lounge offer nighttime entertainment like live music and dancing. Should you need to get in touch with your friends and family back home, Azamara's ships have 24-hour computer stations and Wi-Fi throughout the ship (both available for a fee).
Discoveries Restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is the main dining room on each of Azamara's ships. Its offerings are included in your total cruise fare. At Discoveries, you can be seated at a table with a group of fellow passengers or at a smaller table for two at any time within regular meal hours. When a sit-down dinner doesn't hit the spot, Windows Café (also included in the fare) serves a casual buffet at mealtimes, with options like sushi and carving stations.
Other included casual dining options are The Patio, which offers bites like burgers and self-serve frozen yogurt alfresco; Mosaic Café, which serves sandwiches, biscotti and tea; and the Living Room, where you can savor an afternoon or evening pastry, as well as tea, coffee, wine or tapas. The Mosaic Café also hosts Wine Corner gatherings, in which sommeliers from the ships Wine Cellar guide passengers in discovering new wines.
Azamara features two specialty venues on both of its ships: Aqualina and Prime C. Dining at specialty restaurants is complimentary for guests staying in suites, while all other guests require a $30 per person fee. Reservations are highly recommended and can only be made once you board the ship.
You are encouraged to follow a "resort casual" dress code. Jeans, shorts and tank tops are not permitted in the main dining room, but Windows Café just requires guests to don shirts and shoes. Dressing up for dinner is encouraged at specialty restaurants; sports coats for men and dresses for women are suggested.
Disclaimers about ship ratings: A ship’s Health Rating is based on vessel inspection scores published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If a ship did not receive a CDC score within 22 months prior to the calculation of its Overall Rating, its Health Rating appears as N/A; in such a case, the ship’s Overall Rating is calculated using the average Health Rating of all CDC-rated ships within the cruise line. All ship Traveler Ratings are based on ratings provided under license by Cruiseline.com.
