The Journey has begun for Aussie cruisers

Luxury small-ship cruising is coming to the Australasian market in a big way! Azamara Club Cruises are leaders in the field, and in summer 2016 they tested the waters by sending their Azamara Quest to sail a season of five lengthy cruises in and around Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. Then, the line sent the Azamara Journey, a mid-sized beauty who underwent major refurbishments before making the trip south.

A successful season

The ship has now been and gone, leaving Australia for Asia in early March. If you didn't manage to get aboard her during her fleeting visit, never fear - she will be back! The Journey has another sojourn Down Under planned for February 2018, so luxury cruise fans can 

New and improved Journey
After a fantastic refurbishment in early 2016, the Azamara Journey was bright and fresh on her Australian visit.

Additions to the ship included:

  • An elegant redesign for the ultimate in modern luxury surroundings.
  • Spa suites which offer exclusive spa amenities including an oceanview soaking tubs and are located adjacent to the Sanctum Spa.
  • The Patio, a new al fresco poolside dining area.
  • A casual and comfortable bar, dining and entertainment room called The Living Room.
  • Faster and more pervasive WiFi.

These new features have been the icing on the cake for a ship which already offers a sumptuous cruise experience. Take a look at the Azamara Journey cruises from Australia available in 2018 and start dreaming of a luxury getaway! If that's still somewhat of a pipe dream, Cruise Sale Finder has plenty of other cruises from Australia on offer.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
