In the pursuit of new destinations, Azamara Cruises aptly named its third cruise ship Azamara Pursuit. Previously P&O Cruises Adonia, Azamara Pursuit offers guests an intimate and luxurious small ship cruising experience.
After extensive renovations Azamara Pursuit sails in the Azamara fleet alongside sister ships (Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest) offering cruises with the ambiance of a boutique hotel at sea. Those cruising with Azamara Pursuit can stay longer and experience more through immersive itineraries that feature longer time in port and more overnight stays.
Azamara’s signature staterooms and suites offer guests new and improved luxury accommodation with sumptuous interiors and amenities.
Extraordinary adventures for Azamara Pursuit will see an amazing fifteen maiden port calls added to new itineraries. Highlights include Antofagasta (Chile) and Lima (Peru).
Dining onboard is delicious and guests will embark on a culinary journey like never before, from tantalising Italian cuisine to perfectly cooked succulent steaks and accompanying fine wines.
The main dining venue is The Discoveries Restaurant, where a wide variety of international cuisine is served at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With a regularly changing menu, friendly wait staff, and fine decor, diners certainly won't grow tired of enjoying their meals here.
Guests who do feel like trying something different, however, do have the option of dining in a few other restaurants. Included in the cruise fare is the Windows Cafe, for more a more casual, buffet-style experience, and The Patio, for poolside dishes such as burgers, wings, and fries, and the likes of steak, salmon, and ribs in the evenings.
Alternatively, there are two speciality restaurants onboard which are chargeable. Prime C is an elegant steakhouse serving not only steak but also some vegetarian options and fish dishes, or there is the Aqualina Restaurant where guests can treat themselves to a hearty Italian meal of four courses.
The onboard activities and entertainment programmes range from cultural enrichment classes - both on and off the ship - to game shows, deck parties and more. There are also live cabaret shows and other performances which could be music, dance, or theatrical.
The ship’s bars and lounges make ideal meet up points with new friends.
The gym and fitness facilities ensure that all who enter will return home feeling invigorated with the help of state of the art equipment, including weights, treadmills, and bikes. There is also a menu of exercise classes to take part in, as well as a jogging track on the top deck.
The Sanctum Spa is the next step after a hard work out. Guests can spend time relaxing on the terrace or rejuvenating in the thalassotherapy pool, or even indulge in a treatment such as a massage or even acupuncture. The salon is also close at hand should cruisers want to treat themselves to a manicure, pedicure, hair styling, or teeth-whitening.
