Azamara Quest will also feature a four-day voyage focused on the race roundtrip from Nice.
Maiden Ports of Call
With itineraries that don’t repeat in the calendar year, Azamara has fast become the most popular line for booking back-to-back voyages. In 2018, 30 of the 228 ports of call will be new for the line bringing guests to a variety of smaller ports that big ships can’t access. These gems span the globe including European post in Gdansk, Poland, Dundee, Scotland and Klaipeda, Lithuania as well as more exotic locales like Hambantota, Sri Lanka, Geraldton, Australia and Perth (Fremantle), Australia.
More 2018 Voyage Highlights:
