FCCA Welcomes New Member Line: Azamara


zamara is again an FCCA Member Line, and FCCA is excited for the opportunities this represents for stakeholders throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Mexico. After all, Azamara is the leader in “Destination Immersion,” with the largest selection of pre- and post- voyage land programs in the cruise industry. The destination-focused brand offers a total of 1,700+ land program offerings, which complement the brand’s immersive voyages and further enhances its commitment to bringing guests closer to the heart of a destination. Azamara’s commitment to creating immersive experiences for travelers to connect with local cultures allows guests to travel deeper with longer stays, more overnights, and night touring. As part of in-depth immersion into a specific destination, an extensive palette of world events and themed voyages are offered. With Azamara’s “Country Intensive Voyages,” guests get to travel deeper and experience more of a given country, as most of the destinations are concentrated

in one country such as Japan, Italy, Spain, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Croatia and more – with there being clear potential for multi-port stays throughout FCCA partner destinations. Azamara’s four mid-sized ships – Azamara Pursuit, Azamara Quest, Azamara Journey and the recently added Azamara Onward – sail to all seven continents of the world. Through the brand’s Destination Immersion programming, curated itineraries bring the ships to exotic and marquee ports. On board, guests can experience a boutique hotel at sea with inclusive amenities such as gratuities, beverages and AzAmazing Evenings – an exclusive, bespoke event designed specifically for Azamara guests to immerse themselves in their destination and more. FCCA will work with stakeholders and destinations to create these kinds of AzAmazing experiences throughout the regions FCCA represents, along with endeavoring to advance the longer stays, multi-port calls and more that fit the wants and needs of FCCA partners.
