photoAzamara Club Cruises is a relatively new cruise line, having been launched as a boutique subsidiary of Celebrity Cruises in 2007.

photoThe line has two attractive 694-passenger ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, which are fairly small by today's standards. (We sailed on Azamara Quest during that ship's last voyage as the R7 of Renaissance Cruises, and we liked the vessel.)

In 2015, Azamara is offering five- to 16-night cruises in the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, and Northern and Western Europe. Every European cruise offers a complimentary "AzAmazing Evening" shore event. (Past examples: A night at the ballet in St. Petersburg and a polo match with reception in St. Tropez.)

  • Please note: If you're the sort of person who likes to spend evenings ashore, Azamara may be a good fit. The line claims to have "more late-night and overnight stays" in ports than any other cruise operator.
