Company history[edit]

Azamara Club Cruises is a cruise company which operates two ships, the Azamara Journey and the Azamara Quest. The company is a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises. It was founded in 2007 as Azamara Cruises, and changed to the present name in April 2010.[1]:266 Both ships were refurbished in the winter of 2012–2013.[1]:266

Fleet history[edit]

Azamara Club Cruises currently operates two vessels that were originally part of the eight R-Class cruise ships built between 1998-2001 for Renaissance Cruises. They are the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest both built in 2000 and originally called R Six and R Seven. Both ships are 30,447 GT and are smaller than average cruise ships. Azamara Club Cruises use this advantage as far as they can because their ships can travel up rivers to cities such at Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City in Asia. Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest carry between 694 and 702 passengers.
