Azamara has announced the remainder of its programme for 2022 and the first quarter of 2023.

The destination-focussed cruise line has added more than 80 new itineraries, more than 170 overnights and 300 late night stays.

Maiden ports include Syros and Tinos, in Greece, Dakar, in Senegal, and Aberdeen in Scotland, taking the total programme to 275 ports of call in more than 70 countries.

Azamara will offer more Country-Intensive Voyages between 2022 and 2023 than ever before, as the brand focuses on in-depth exploration of destinations and connecting guests to a country’s local life and culture.

“As the leader in Destination Immersion, we are always enthusiastic about sharing our new deployment, this year it’s even more special as we have the opportunity to announce an extension of our Country-Intensive Voyages,” said chief operating officer Carol Cabezas.

“When we were working on our itineraries for 2022-2023, our goal was to invite new and returning guests to explore places they have never visited before, or better yet, connect our guests to a country they have travelled to before, but adding in ports that are considered hidden gems to allow for a new experience, which our Country-Intensives are designed to offer.”

Azamara’s programme will also feature its guest favourites, including Greece Country-Intensives, voyages to the Black Sea and Egypt-Israel intensive voyages as well as South Africa Intensive voyages.
