Azamara Quest heading to Australia

Azamara Club Cruises has announced it will send Azamara Quest to Australia for the first time in 2016.

Arriving in January for the summer season, the ship will offer five 10-to- 17-night voyages in Australia and New Zealand during her two month stay.

Itineraries include a 14-night Bali & Barrier Reef voyage sailing from Bali on 22 December 2015 to Cairns; a 10-night Great Barrier Reef to Sydney sailing departing Cairns on 5 January; a 16-night Australia & New Zealand explorers itinerary departing from Sydney to Auckland on 15 January 2016; a 13-night Australia & New Zealand sailing from Auckland to Sydney departing 31 January  2016; and a 17-night Great Barrier Reef & Bali sailing departing Sydney 13 February 2016.

Asia Pacific regional vice president Gavin Smith said the ship’s deployment comes as Australia continues to be the line’s largest growth market.

“It has long been our aim to bring an Azamara ship to Australia and we are delighted to welcome Azamara Quest,” he said.

Fares for Azamara’s inaugural Australian season start from $6,069* per person for a 16-night Australia & New Zealand explorers sailing departing Sydney 16 January 2016.

For Australians wishing to get an earlier taste of Azamara’s specialty cruising experience, the luxury line is offering a double stateroom upgrade on selected global sailings for guests who book a cruise for 2014-15 before 31 May 2014.
