Azamara Club Cruises, the subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises has entered into an agreement to purchase the Azamara Pursuit, a ship that will complement the brand’s proposition further by taking travellers to destinations hitherto unexperienced. Come March 2018, TIRUN Travel Marketing the pioneer of cruise tourism in the country and the exclusive India representative of Azamara Club Cruises will provide Indian travellers the opportunity to enjoy the most uniquely-curated destination experiences in the magnificent sister ship of Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
The Azamara Pursuit is similar in size to the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, and its décor and features have been customized to match the exquisite experience provided by its sister ships. However, the most important highlight of the ship will be the journeys it makes to previously uncharted destinations such as the vast salt flats in Chile’s Antofagasta or allowing travellers to dine in the oldest continuously inhabited house of the Americas in Lima, Peru.
Ratna Chadha, Chief Executive, TIRUN Travel Marketing said, “Azamara Club Cruises has been highly popular amongst Indian cruise enthusiasts because it offers a delightful blend of upscale experiences and longer overnight stays for a more nuanced enjoyment of the destinations. Azamara Pursuit will further add to the brand’s value as a cruise line that guarantees the best of aesthetics, experience and extravagance to travelers, bringing its guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea. The destinations explored by the Azamara Pursuit and the longer itineraries combined with stimulating on-port and on-sea experiences are surely going to find many takers in India. We are pleased to extend the opportunity to our guests to travel to destinations as exciting as Uruguay, Buenos Aires, Belfast, Akureyri and many more on this wonderfully-appointed ship.”
The Azamara Pursuit will be covering a total of 61 destinations, out of which 15 destinations have not been visited yet by any of Azamara’s ships. The ship will be travelling across all the seven continents, allowing travelers to experience an assortment of geographies and cultures. Information about deployment and itineraries for Azamara Pursuit has been made available since October.
