AZAMARA’S AUSSIE DEBUT EXPECTED TO BOOST SALES

14 Jan 16 - 11:36AM  | Cruise News

Azamara Club Cruises made its Australian debut this month, with Azamara Quest‘s inaugural season Down Under expected to raise the cruise line’s local profile.

Azamara Quest arrived in Sydney this morning as the final stop on its 10-night Great Barrier Reef sailing from Cairns.

The 686-passenger vessel departed Cairns on January 5th, making its way down the east coast. On Saturday, it will begin its voyage to Auckland with calls at Melbourne, Port Arthur, Hobart, Milford Sound, Dunedin, Akaroa, Picton, Napier and Tauranga. The ship will then sail a return trip to Sydney from Auckland, before repositioning back to Asia.

“Since its inception in 2009 our destination-focused cruise line has proved very popular with Australian cruisers in Asia and Europe – so we are delighted to finally welcome Azamara Club Cruises to Australian waters for the very first time,” regional commercial director Adam Armstrong said.

“Australia is now our third largest market for Azamara and we know that much more growth will follow Azamara Quest’s inaugural season down under.”

Azamara recently confirmed it will deploy a ship to the region for another two seasons, with Azamara Journey coming for the first time in 2017 and Azamara Quest returning in 2018, following extensive revitalisations.
