Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'s upmarket cruise brand Azamara Club Cruises has entered into an agreement to purchase a sister ship to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, president and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”
Azamara Pursuit is comparable in size to the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. These mid-size ships, with a capacity of 686 guests each, will allow visits to ports that larger ships are unable to reach. Together, the three ships will support the brand’s commitment to ‘enrich destination immersion around the world’, by staying longer in ports.
Azamara Pursuit’s décor will be updated to a similar style of the recently renovated Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, bringing guests the ‘experience of a boutique hotel at sea.’
The new addition will be delivered in March 2018.
