Azamara to return to sailing in Europe in 2021


Azamara Pursuit will operate a series of 'Greek Country-Intensive' cruises in 2021

Azamara will resume cruise operations in the 2021 Europe season, when Azamara Quest will return to sailing on 20 March 2021.

“After very careful consideration, we have made the decision to pause operations until the 2021 Europe season, as we are still confronted with the many global challenges resulting from Covid-19,” said Carol Cabezas, Azamara’s chief operating officer. “We plan to return stronger than ever next season, with reimagined guest experiences that will protect the well-being of our guests and crew yet remain true to the Azamara spirit of connecting people to cultures.”

Azamara Quest will begin the Europe season for the cruise line with the originally scheduled 12-night ‘Spain Intensive Voyage’, which will begin in Lisbon, Portugal, and call at Spanish destinations including Seville, Malaga, Valencia and Barcelona.

She will be followed by Azamara Journey, which will depart on a ‘Iberia Intensive’ cruise on 9 April 2021. Organised in partnership with golf holiday provider Perry Golf, the itinerary will give passengers the opportunity to participate in four rounds at golf destinations around the peninsula, including Amendoeira Golf Resort in Portimao, Portugal, Real Club Sevilla Golf in Seville, Spain and Real Club Valderrama in Sotogrande, Spain.

Finally, Azamara Pursuit will embark on a ‘Greek Country-Intensive’ series of voyages from 9 May 2021 from Athens, Greece and will include calls at the islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Rhodes.
