Oceanic to manage hotel procurement and logistics for Azamara


Oceanic will support hotel operations on all four Azamara vessels

Luxury cruise brand Azamara has contracted V.Ships Leisure’s sister brand Oceanic to manage hotel procurement and logistics requirements for its four-ship fleet.

Oceanic will support Azamara as it transitions out of the Royal Caribbean Group and becomes an independent cruise line. It will also help the operator to maintain and improve the onboard culinary experience for guests.

“We’re delighted to have such a supportive and collaborative strategic partner in the form of V.Ships Leisure, and now their sister brand Oceanic, to support Azamara as we voyage into a world of new opportunities as an independent cruise line,” said Doug Parks, chief administrative officer for Azamara. “Oceanic was the natural choice for Azamara with its cruise dedicated team, focus on quality and close integration with the team at V.Ships Leisure. Furthermore, Oceanic’s global network will further support Azamara’s destination immersion experiences with locally procured delicacies from the ports we visit for our guests to enjoy.”

Stefan Kern, director of Oceanic’s cruise division, added: “With this procurement and logistics partnership, we look forward to supporting the Azamara hotel operations to team deliver for their guests. Oceanic is the culinary market leader for all types of ships, with this scale our dedicated cruise team are able to provide tailored services to our cruise line clients while leveraging our global procurement network to consistently deliver on quality.”
