Azamara Pursuit: Voyages focused on destination immersion

Health update: Azamara require all guests 18 and older and crew to be fully vaccinated against COVID no later than 14 days prior to departure.


Launched in 2018, the 702-passenger Azamara Pursuit is similar in size to the 694-passenger ships Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, and it was updated to reflect the renovations introduced on those two ships. Pursuit allows visits to smaller ports that larger ships are unable to reach.

Azamara Club Cruises has tried to set itself apart from luxury brands such as Seabourn and Crystal by focusing on destinations and offering more time in port, including overnight stays on most of its itineraries. 

Where Azamara Pursuit sails

Azamara Pursuit offers far-afield voyages, including to small ports and familiar destinations in the Mediterranean and Western Europe, western Africa, the Middle East and South America.
