A few days on the Azamara Pursuit

Posted By : JoAnne Patterson/ 0 0

Azamara Pursuit is the newest ship to join Azamara Club Cruises. As an agent I had the pleasure to be present for the naming ceremony and two-night cruise from Southampton to Cherbourg in late August of 2018.

When I boarded the ship, I instantly was drawn to the warm shades of color throughout the ship and the contemporary artwork which includes a replica of Andy Scott’s towering sculpture “Beacon of Hope” in the Mosaic Café.

One of the changes featured on the Azamara Pursuit vs the other ships in their fleet is that they have removed the casino and introduced a new lounge called The Den.  This is where guests can book shore excursions or their next cruise or simply enjoy live piano music while relaxing and sipping on one of their themed drinks.

Azamara Pursuit has two new Club Spa Suites located on Deck 9, which in addition to the suite inclusions features exclusive access to the Sanctum Spa, a glass enclosed bathtub overlooking the ocean with a separate rain shower.

Another unique and enjoyable feature is the AZ-amazing experience –  we enjoyed an afternoon in Cherbourg where the cruise terminal was transformed into a French market complete with fresh flowers, cheeses, champagne and macaroons.  What completes the experience onboard the Azamara Pursuit are the friendly staff and officers who are attentive and make you feel like part of a community.
