AZMARA CLUB CRUISES Destinatations - Mediterranean
JOIN US ON A VOYAGE TO ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PLACES ON EARTH.
(AND WE'VE BEEN TO A LOT OF PLACES.)
Shhhh. We’re going to have to be very, very quiet. So lean in close and we’ll whisper in your ear. Because when it comes to talking about how much we love cruising in the Mediterranean, well, it almost feels like we’re cheating on the other Azamara destinations. We don’t want them to get jealous.
It’s like we’re having a love affair with this region and it starts right at the bottom of our feet. Literally. It’s in every detail of the cobblestone alleyways, elegant esplanades, cliff-side footpaths, waterfront promenades, and roads made of marble. When we walk through the cities, towns, and villages of the Mediterranean, it’s almost as if we’re strolling hand-in-hand on a spectacular walk through time.
Our hearts still skip a beat when we dock at each port. The beaches, castles, palaces, cathedrals, and UNESCO World Heritage sites seem to be around every bend. And it’s absolutely impossible to keep from sighing with pleasure as we sample our way through tapas, mezes, hors d’oeuvres, and antipasti. (Any way you say it the food here is always delicious.)
Please, just trust us on this: You, too, will fall in love when you sail to the Mediterranean with Azamara Club Cruises®.
EXPERIENCE LA DOLCE VITA...
Want to spice things up with old-fashioned glamor, sun-drenched shores, and fantastic food? Then we highly recommend a delectable journey to the Italian Riviera, where resort towns and cliff-side fishing villages emerge from the rocky shores of the Ligurian Sea in one stunning location after another.
Writers, artists, royals, and celebrities have all flocked to this storied part of the world in search of sun, sand, and the warm blue sea. And now it’s your turn get a taste of the good life with Azamara Club Cruises.
But be careful of biting off more than you can chew: Once you’ve visited the Italian Riviera with us, every other destination in the world may seem a bit bland in comparison.
A TASTE OF ITALY
CRUISE THE COTE D’AZUR & ENJOY “LA BELLE VIE”
Whether you want to call it “the French Riviera” in English, or “the Cote d’Azur” en français, we suggest using one simple word to describe the alluring southeastern coastline of France: Magnifique!
The French Riviera, as we’ll call it for now, is one the most glamorous places on Earth, where the crystalline sparkle of its azure waters are rivaled only by the dazzling nightlife and bejeweled citizens. (Even Fodor’s Travel references the region’s inordinate number of ports “where the per-capita population of billionaires must be among the highest on the planet”!)
But in amongst all the glitz and glam is a storied area of the world that has transfixed artists and writers, peasants and nobility, and tycoons and travelers alike for centuries. Is it because of the seemingly tropical climate, palm trees, and golden beaches? Or is it the bounty of fish and flora, villages and vineyards that grace the Cote’s shores and the mountains that seduces so many?
Perhaps you’ll have a completely different opinion on why it’s special here—once you take a journey with Azamara to the Cote d’Azur...we mean, the French Riviera!

The Holy Land
DISCOVER THE WORLD’S OLDEST CIVILIZATIONS WITH AZAMARA
For thousands of years, pilgrims from all over the world have come to the Holy Land to worship and pray—and for tremendous reasons. It’s home to some of the most revered destinations on Earth, including Jerusalem, Nazareth, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, and Temple Mount, as well as the sacred heart of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the Baha’i faith.
But this crossroads of Asia, Africa, and Europe that stretches from the Mediterranean to the River Jordan is also a beguiling place of extreme contrasts. Where the landscapes range from arid deserts to lush valleys and beaches of golden sand. Where some of the world’s most renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites can be found. And where the cultures, cuisine, and daily traditions are as vastly different as the pilgrims themselves.
To delve into the past, present, and future of this magnificent region, come take a spiritual journey with us to the Holy Land.

Greek Isles & Turkey
WHERE TIME TRAVELING REALLY DOES EXIST...
When it comes to describing this "pinch me, I must be dreaming" corner of the world, we're not going to inundate you with long-winded, flowery, and superlative-filled sentences. Because simply put: If you've never been to the Greek Isles or Turkey with Azamara Club Cruises®, you're missing the boat. Literally.
However, we should probably warn you that once you do go on a voyage with us to the Greek Isles and Turkey, you might experience symptoms of withdrawal. (Well, at least that's what our guests say.) And it's no wonder, since this northeastern region of the Mediterranean has played an extraordinary role throughout the ages.
THE GREEK ISLES
THE CULINARY JOURNEY
THE BEST-KEPT SECRET IN CRUISING
Lean in close, because we’re going to let you in on a little secret. What if we told you there was an off-the-beaten-path destination that combined the sun-drenched landscape of the Italian Riviera (including the incredible food and wine!), with the laid-back lifestyle of the Greek Islands, plus UNESCO World Heritage Sites galore? Think it’s too good to be true?
Then maybe it’s time you discovered the Adriatic—a region that’s full of life and free of crowds, where only those truly in the know go. And speaking of insider knowledge, we’ll show you the Adriatic’s greatest hits and hidden gems, because Azamara Club Cruises is the only cruise line that offers such innovations as Cruise Global, Meet Local and Cruise Global, Nights Local shore excursions. Think of it as traveling with your own Adriatic expert who also happens to be able to get you in to places you never even dreamed of. Like the Adriatic itself.
