Azamara Refurbishments

Azamara Quest, the first of Azamara Club Cruises’ sister ships to undergo refurbishment, emerged from an eight-day drydock – complete with a refresh of all public spaces and staterooms and a new “Azamara Blue” hull.

Shipwide renovations included new carpets, upholstery and a new colour palette in public spaces; new mattresses and upgraded veranda furniture for suites and staterooms; a resurfaced pool and new sun loungers and pool towels on the outer decks. The Casino Bar also was expanded and enhanced with new furniture, while the Spa and fitness centre was refreshed with a new steam room, showers, and state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment. Furthermore, a range of enhancements were made behind the scenes in the staff and crew area.

On the culinary front, guests can now enjoy a new caviar and champagne bar within Aqualina, one of the ships’ two specialty dining venues, as well as a new Chef’s Table concept featuring three wine degustation menus – Italian, French and Californian. At Mosaic Café, the ships’ central gathering spot, passengers can purchase a freshly brewed cup of bespoke coffee.

Upon departing from Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain, Azamara Quest will sail a 13-night Madeira and Canary Islands voyage, beginning Nov. 16, followed by a four-night Spanish and Northern Africa voyage on Nov. 28. The ship then departs on Dec. 2, to embark on a 16-night, trans-Atlantic voyage to Rio De Janeiro for her South America season.

Guests aboard Azamara Quest enjoy more inclusive amenities, such as included gratuities for housekeeping, dining and bar staff; complimentary bottled water, sodas, specialty coffee, and teas, as well as complimentary red and white boutique wines to accompany lunch and dinner; complimentary self-service laundry; English Butler service for suite guests; and shuttle transportation to city centres in ports, where available.
