What’s next for Azamara Pursuit – an update

A few weeks ago Azamara Club Cruises announced the wonderful news of a third addition the the fleet.

“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. Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time, we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”

– Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises

Azamara Pursuit is identical to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest as it is the the original R Eight that was built for Renaissance Cruises before it went bankrupt.

In March 2018 Azamara will take receipt of the vessel in the Bahamas where it will go through statutory class inspection. This includes taking the ship out of the water for a close inspection of the hull and the tail gear. Once the inspection is complete the ship will officially be handed over and set sail for Europe.

Once in Europe the ship will go through a complete refurbishment similar to the renovations recently introduced on the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Azamara is currently in final negotiations with two yards, Cadiz and Marseilles.

Itineraries for the new Azamara Pursuit are set to become available later this month and will probably include inaugural sailings in the Mediterranean followed by South Africa, the Seychelles and Alaska in 2019. Azamara Pursuit will make her maiden voyage in August 2018.
