Watching a beautiful Russian ballet at St Petersburg's famous Mikhailovsky Theatre, going behind the scenes at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, exploring the Picasso Museum in Malaga during an after-dinner private tour, or hearing first-hand personal stories and traditions from your host at an informal small-group visit to a family farm - these are just some of the experiences Azamara offer to fully immerse you in the history, culture, and beauty of the destinations you'll visit.
Visiting 204 ports across seventy countries and five continents, Azamara offer longer stays and overnight port calls, so you have the time to explore in depth and at leisure, and even enjoy the small moments - there's no need to rush about! With Azamara's exclusive one-of-a-kind Land Discoveries, you can discover hidden gems on these unique tours for twenty-plus people, or enjoy customised tours tailored to suit your interests, with total peace of mind as the Land Discoveries have a priority departure, a guaranteed return to your ship in the event of delays, and no hidden fees. Immerse yourself with a first-hand insight and Insider Access, joining memorable small group tours to ancestral homes, family farms, or historic estates and learn about local traditions and personal stories straight from your host. Thanks to Azamara's longer and overnight stays, you can experience the vibrant nightlife of many destinations, or enjoy small group after-dinner experiences from a private tour of the Picasso Museum to an evening gondola ride in Venice, but they've also curated some truly extraordinary experiences to create some fantastic memories; AzAmazing Evenings are unique events bringing local culture to life, with authentic and bespoke evenings complete with the most incredible entertainment you could imagine, and it's solely for Azamara guests. From renowned musicians, traditional dancers, Russian ballet, to wine tasting at a French chateau, each AzAmazing Evening is a delight to behold, with one included on most voyages - and always complimentary.
The onboard experience with Azamara is just as memorable as those you'll experience ashore. Stylish and upmarket, with a personable and attentive crew offering first class service, Azamara offers all the comforts and amenities of a boutique floating hotel. From their five distinctive dining experiences, offering al fresco options and two specialty restaurants, to a Broadway-inspired revue at the Cabaret Lounge, dancing and moonlight views in the Living Room, or drinks and music at Mosaic@Night, and an indulgent spa, there's a convivial, country-club atmosphere to soak up, and plenty of the good life to enjoy.

Some of the world's most beautiful and historic destinations, rich with culture.
