According to a recent report, one of the top five motivators for luxury travellers this year will be ‘to seek authentic local experiences’. With an increased demand for culturally enriching experiences, travellers will continue to look to travel brands to provide authentic and meaningful experiences which connect them to the people, customs and culture of a destination. Renowned for its Destination Immersion programming, Azamara Club Cruises provides travellers with unique opportunities to experience destinations like never before and next year, guests will enjoy an array of immersive land excursions.


One of the world’s largest and most exciting carnivals is staged in Rio de Janeiro which transforms into a city full of parties, music and vibrant colours. On a 12-night South American cruise departing 19 February 2020, Azamara Club Cruises features two overnight stays in Rio. Following this, guests head to Punta Del Este where they will discover the world’s largest non-migratory colony of fur seals or try their hand at preparing a traditional Uruguayan ‘parrillada’ barbecue during an interactive cooking lesson.


Azamara Club Cruises will also be sailing to the African Continent for the first time in January 2020 with two itineraries that dovetail with pre- and post-cruise packages from renowned Micato Safaris. The five-night ‘Kruger to Cape: A Wildlife & Culinary Safari’ includes an exploration from Kruger to Cape Town with stops at a game reserve and a visit to the Western Cape, known for its superb wines and fine restaurants. The five-night ‘Wild Wonders of the World - Victoria Falls & Botswana Safari’ travels through Zimbabwe to Botswana with a visit to Victoria Falls. This expedition also includes a dawn game-drive through Botswana’s Chobe Game Reserve and an optional helicopter tour of the falls.


Starting in 2020, Azamara will offer guests a more inclusive stateroom category called Veranda Plus. The new accommodation will have the same dimensions and features as a regular Veranda stateroom but includes additional benefits such as internet minutes, a night of speciality dining, priority embarkation and more.
