Azamara Club Cruises has introduced new AzAmazing Evenings for 2019. These signature bespoke events deliver authentic travel moments designed to bring Azamara guests closer to the culture and people of a destination.
AzAmazing Evenings are unique to each location and feature local talent and performances. On many occasions they are hosted in historic venues, including The Odeon of Ancient Ephesus in Turkey and the Solìs Theatre in Uruguay.
“Committed to our award-winning Destination Immersion programming, we are constantly looking for new and enhanced experiences ashore to deliver authentic travel moments to our guests, while immersing them with the local culture, food, and people,” said Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises.
A Few of the New AzAmazing Evenings
Lura at Pateo Da Gale
Embarking from Barcelona on May 28, 2019, guests sailing on the 14-Night Tall Sails and Remembrance Voyage will enjoy one of Europe’s most magnificent squares, Terreiro do Paço. With cocktails upon arrival, guests will enjoy the rhythms of colonial-rooted, Funana—an upbeat, accordion-based type of music—performed by Portuguese singer and musician, Lura. Guests will also enjoy the sounds of Bombo (traditional Portuguese bass drum) performed by the Toca Rufar Orchestra.
A Musical Tribute to the Knights of Rhodes
Setting sail on June 19, 2019, guests on the 10-Night Greece Intensive Voyage will delve into knighthood through a musical journey at the historic, colossal Grand Master’s Palace in Rhodes, Greece. This palatial structure was originally built in the 7th century as a Byzantine Citadel and held by the Crusaders. Guests will explore the site’s towers, walls and torch-lit hallways, before listening to a musical tribute to the Knights of Rome performed by a four-piece classical orchestra with tenor and soprano.
Traditional Korean Performance at Busan Culture Center
Departing from Tokyo on August 21, 2019, guests on the 14-Night Circle Japan Intensive Voyage will enjoy an exclusive evening at the Busan Cultural Center, a venue dedicated to showcasing Korean heritage, music and art. Local experts will perform time-honored, Korean folk dances and demonstrate the powerful art of taekwondo.
AzAmazing Evenings are complimentary shore excursions and are included on most Azamara voyages, except transatlantic crossings and voyages that are less than seven nights long. Azamara Club Cruises will announce the list of 2020 and 2021 AzAmazing Evenings in June 2019.
