Azamara Club Cruises has announced a major refurbishment plan for its ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. According to the company, both ships “will undergo “major upgrades” while in dry dock in early 2016, reinvigorating the onboard guest experience.” Azamara’s ships are more intimate than the big ships accommodating 686 guests each.

No area of the ships will be untouched by the extensive renovations. According to Azamara President and CEO Larry Pimentel, “each corner of the ships will have a new look and feel, setting a brighter, more contemporary ambiance, while the new venues will bring guests fresh experiences. We’re also investing in new onboard innovations and have paid close attention to the smallest of details. We really are redefining our onboard experience in every way.”

I’m looking forward to sailing with Azamara in the near future and can’t wait to see the redesign up close. Further details of the upgrades will be announced throughout the year. You can learn more at
