Azamara Club Cruises Announces New Ship
26 Sep 2017
Azamara Club Cruises has announced it is purchasing a sister ship to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
Currently sailing as Adonia for P&O Cruises, the sister ship, which will be named Azamara Pursuit, will join the Azamara Club Cruises fleet from March 2018.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”
The ship’s décor will be updated to match the brand’s upmarket position. These updates will be similar to the renovations recently introduced on the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, bringing guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea.
In a statement, Paul Ludlow, Senior Vice President of P&O Cruises, said: “yesterday we signed a contract for the same of Adonia. The sale will be completed in March 2018 and Adonia’s last cruise as a P&O Cruises ship will be D804 leaving Barbados on February 23 and ending in Barbados on March 9, 2018.”
Cruises aboard Adonia that depart after March 9 have been cancelled. Information about deployment and itineraries for Azamara Pursuit will be available in October.
