Boutique cruise line Azamara Club Cruises announced it would be acquiring a new ship to add to its two-vessel fleet. The new Azamara Pursuit which will be launched in March 2018.
It was revealed that the company would be purchasing the Adonia from P&O Cruises, which was used for the line’s Fathom program.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, president and CEO.
“Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”
The ship will undergo major refurbishment to match the upgrades that were completed on the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest earlier this year.
The line is famous for its immersive and intimate experiences due to the size of the vessels.
Azamara also released 100 new shore excursions for Australia and Asia which include a bike tour of Hoi An in Vietnam, a visit to the monkey forests in Bali, Indonesia as well as culinary tour of Kangaroo Island.
The Azamara Journey will be sailing around Asia from October to December and she will be sailing Down Under for her third season from January 2018.
