Azamara Club Cruises as part of its destination immersion sailings has launched City Stays Packages, in collaboration with luxury tour operator Cox & Kings. The packages are available before and after sailings and feature curated travel experiences with an emphasis on local connections, according to Azamara.
Available on all three of Azamara’s luxury boutique ships, a City Stays package allows guests additional time to explore arrival or departure ports.
“As a leader in delivering authentic cultural experiences across the globe, the expansion of Azamara’s land offerings to include City Stays programs in key markets enhances our guests’ connection with the destination by providing opportunities to explore a city from a local’s perspective,” said Larry Pimentel, Azamara’s president and CEO.
Cox & Kings’ President Patrick Richards said his company is thrilled to partner with Azamara on the new City Stays program. “We’ve customized some truly special experiences in some of the world’s greatest cities and look forward to showcasing these to Azamara guests,” he said.
