Azamara Club Cruises is a deluxe cruise experience for discerning travellers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations and indulge in amenities and service unparalleled on the high seas.
The unique offerings of Azamara Club Cruises are beyond compare: complimentary 24 hour room service is provided in every stateroom; shore excursions are designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer; the enrichment programs offer everything from culinary to photographic explorations; two specialty restaurants provide the finest cuisine at sea; live entertainment can be enjoyed nightly; and the level of service offered is unmatched.
Azamara Club Cruises consist of two intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Each can carry 694 fortunate guests and because they are smaller and sleeker than larger cruise ships, they can sail to ports that others simply cannot reach.
In addition to offering a more personalised experience, the ships have recently undergone a $17.5 million revitalisation with new European bedding and soft furnishings, flat screen televisions, new verandah decking and furniture, and wireless internet service in all staterooms and public areas. Plus, 93% of the staterooms offer ocean views and 68% have a private veranda.
You may be wondering where the name Azamara comes from. Azamara is a coined term derived from the Romance languages. This includes the more obvious links to blue (az) and the sea (mar). The name was also inspired by a star, Acamar.
In Classical times, the star Acamar was the most southerly bright star that could be seen from the latitude of Greece. Azamara Club Cruises can be seen as a star on the blue sea.

For nearly four decades, Uniworld has taken guests to the most spectacular destinations in Europe, Russia, Egypt, Vietnam, Cambodia, and China. In 2006, Uniworld was acquired by The Travel Corporation, a highly successful international travel group with over 25 award-winning brands such as Trafalgar, Insight, Brendan, and Contiki, as well as Red Carnation Hotels—the award-winning five-star luxury hotel collection. The Travel Corporation has made major investments in Uniworld's ships and its people. The ultimate goal of these investments is to provide guests with a first-class European boutique cruise experience. Combining our sister companies’ expertise in tour planning and in first-class hotel management with our own decades of superior nautical experience has enabled Uniworld to create a new standard in luxury river cruising.
Boutique hotel designers often invest considerable time, thought, and resources in creating destination-specific interior decor for their properties, and in choosing amenities that will assure an intimate, elegant yet relaxed experience for their guests. This same care and attention is apparent on each of Uniworld’s company-owned ships. In the last few years, Uniworld has introduced several stunning new ships to its fleet and has completely remodeled and redesigned its existing ships so that all company-owned ships meet the highest standards of comfort and style. No matter their ship, Uniworld guests can travel from one exciting destination to the next with access to inviting lounges, cozy libraries, panoramic restaurants offering sumptuous cuisine, and lovely riverview staterooms.
Uniworld employs an all English-speaking, professionally trained staff, so there are no language barriers and no problems with understanding what is being said or what's going on when you're onboard. All announcements are made only in English. Unlike many companies offering river cruise programs in Europe and elsewhere, Uniworld is an American company focused on North American travellers and other English-speaking clientele (the trips are popular with Australians, British, Canadians, and South African travellers as well).
Uniworld’s headquarters is located in Los Angeles, California, and it has an outstanding European operations team who reports directly to our Los Angeles headquarters, which allows us to have complete control over every aspect of product delivery: nautical, hospitality, and land. In addition, we have a satellite office in Arnhem, the Netherlands, and a China operations team in Beijing. By having operations teams located in these regions, Uniworld is able to react quickly and efficiently to any given challenge and/or emergency.
