Each day on this Adriatic adventure brings something new, from canals in Venice, to underground caverns in Slovenia, to clifftop monasteries in Greece. A night and full day in Venice before departure lets you bask in the glory of piazzas, canals, palaces, and Murano's famous glassmakers.
Outside of Koper, take an underground tour of Skocjan Caves, a sprawling network of river-carved limestone caverns stretching over six kilometers. Or visit Slovenia's beautiful capital city of Ljubljana, where an emerald river encircles a pedestrian and bike-friendly old town.
The island of Korcula has kept Croatia's folk traditions alive as well as its winemaking traditions. Dubrovnik is Korcula's grown-up cousin, with its own massive ramparts and marble streets lined with historic monuments. A late stay here lets you return to town after sunset for dinner and music, an experience you shouldn't miss.
Be on deck as we sail the magnificent fjord to Kotor, an ancient city nestled against steep mountains. If you're feeling fit, climb the steps to the Fortress for fabulous views. You'll get another chance to sigh over the beautiful fjord as we depart.
As we sail south, each of three ports in Greece will add to your "who knew?" travel stories. Igoumenitsa is the gateway to the Monasteries of Meteora, seemingly suspended in air. Katakolon is the home of the ancient Olympiad, and Nafplio is arguably one of the prettiest towns in Greece, with elegant homes lining narrow streets with sweeping bay views. At the end we sail to Athens-a fitting end to this great escape.
STAY LONGER. EXPERIENCE MORE.
“Stay longer. Experience more." It's the philosophy behind every Azamara Club CruisesÒ voyage. It's what brings you to iconic destinations like Monte Carlo, and offers the opportunity to attend the world famous Monaco Grand Prix. It's what led to complimentary AzAmazing EveningsÒ, where you can listen to the sounds of a private performance by a 12-piece string orchestra, in the cozy atmosphere of the Odeon, a classic Roman theater. And it's what enables you to go behind-the-scenes of local life, with more time and opportunities to experience local culture in authentic ways thanks to Destination ImmersionÒ. Go farther, travel deeper, and bring your boutique hotel at sea with you every step of the way.
So much to do. So much time to do it.
Some things in life shouldn't be rushed, and we believe travel is certainly one of them. Every Azamara voyage features longer and overnight stays in port, so you can experience your destinations at all hours of the day. More time on land offers the opportunity to take a train ride through the deep green mountains of New Zealand, capped off with a traditional meal cooked over a pit oven of hot rocks. With overnight stays, you can spend an evening and following morning at a quaint Bed & Breakfast in the hills of Tuscany. And nights docked in port let you attend a show or two on the other side of the world.
Where in the world would you like to go? From the tropical West Indies to the stunning Mediterranean to the Land Down Under, if there is a destination you've always wanted to experience, there is a good chance you can get there on one of the various Azamara itineraries, taking you to both famous destinations and hidden gem locales. Azamara itineraries seldom repeat ports, so you can make the most of your time spent traveling the world while getting an immersive look into a variety of destinations, all on one voyage. Sit back and relax. Or get out and explore. We'll be here a while.
When you do choose to come back onboard, you'll be completely taken care of with inclusive amenities, a relaxed atmosphere, and a passionate and friendly staff and crew that will go out of their way to make your voyage one you won't soon forget. Welcome to your home sweet ship.
