Azamara Quest, the first of Azamara Club Cruises’ twin boutique ships to undergo refurbishment, has emerged from an eight-day drydock, complete with a refresh of all public spaces and staterooms and a new ‘Azamara Blue’ hull. The ships will offer new complimentary ‘AzAmazing Evening’ shore events on every voyage starting with each ship’s Europe 2013 season.
Ship-wide renovations include new carpets, upholstery, and a new colour palette in public spaces; new mattresses and upgraded veranda furniture for suites and staterooms; a resurfaced pool, and new sun loungers and pool towels on the outer decks. The Casino Bar has also been expanded and enhanced with new furniture, while the Spa and fitness centre has a new steam room, showers, and state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment.
On the culinary front, guests can now enjoy a new caviar and champagne bar within Aqualina, one of the ships’ two speciality dining venues, as well as a new Chef’s Table concept featuring three wine menus – Italian, French and Californian. At Mosaic Café, the ships’ central gathering spot, guests can purchase a freshly brewed cup of bespoke coffee.
On departing from Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain, Azamara Quest has set sail on a 13-night Madeira and Canary Islands voyage, beginning 16th November, followed by a four-night Spanish and Northern Africa voyage on 28th November. The ship then departs on 2nd December to embark on a 16-night, transatlantic voyage to Rio de Janeiro for its South America season.
