Azamara Journey (Azamara Club Cruises)

Overview

Azamara Journey is one of two identical ships belonging to Azamara Club Cruises. Originally built as R Six in 2000 for now defunct Renaissance Cruises. Later, she spent a portion of her time with Pullmantur (2003-2007) – a Royal Caribbean sister brand (like Azamara Club Cruises) before transferring over to her current status as Azamara Journey in 2007.

Azamara Journey offers a small boutique-hotel like cruise experience. With a higher than average crew:passenger ratio she offers more attention to detail on service, excursions, dining and also due to the size of the ship – smaller ports that can’t be visited by the larger cruise ships.

She doesn’t generally homeport in any region. Instead, she moves around the world to different regions throughout the year and runs longer than average cruises from them (14-28 days) – as most of the costs in a cruise are included in the fares, combined with the aforementioned crew ratio and ports – she appeals to the luxury or well-travelled cruise passenger, usually without children.

Trivia

In November 2012, there was an attempted pirate attacked against Azamara Journey, which failed.
