Azamara Journey Review
About This Ship

Cruise Ship Overview
Built in 2000 for Renaissance Cruises, which ceased operations in 2001, the former R6 was acquired by Azamara Club Cruises and launched as Azamara Journey in 2007—a sister ship to Azamara Quest. With fewer than 700 passengers on board, Azamara Journey is well suited for her destination-rich itineraries. After an extensive renovation in 2012, she will emerge from dry dock with new carpets, upholstery, and a new color palette in public spaces. In addition, her hull will be painted in a new dark blue color. Azamara Journey offers a mix of diverse seasonal cruises in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and the Caribbean as well as sailing to Asia and making transatlantic crossing to ply the waters around South America.
At 30,277 tons, Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey are medium-size ships and well suited to the somewhat more exotic itineraries for which they are deployed, whether in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, or South America. The ships initially entered service for Renaissance Cruises and served in Spain under the Pullmantur flag until 2007. With their entry into the Azamara Club Cruises fleet, a new option is available to passengers who prefer the boutique-hotel atmosphere of a smaller ship without the luxury-class price tag.
Each ship has a variety of signature features, including the Martini Bar in Casino Luxe, a casual sidewalk café–style coffee bar, and the distinctive Astral Spa with an acupuncture suite and expansive relaxation deck with therapy pool. Each ship has two specialty restaurants. The exclusive experience includes butler service in suites and concierge-style amenities in all categories of accommodations.
