    Following a highly successful 2022-23 season Down Under, Azamara is returning to Australia and New Zealand with two ships for an unforgettable summer of country-intensive sailings.

    Azamara Journey docks in Fremantle on 20 December 2023 after a nine-night cruise from Singapore, setting sail on a fully booked 14-night voyage around Western Australia and South Australia on December 21, 2023.

    Guests will celebrate Christmas at sea and dock overnight in Sydney for the city’s always spectacular New Year’s revels.

    During January and February 2024, Azamara Journey will sail two more country-intensive voyages between Australia and New Zealand – 16- and 17-night itineraries that visit 13 ports – and a 14-night cruise from Sydney to Fremantle.

    The ship departs from Fremantle and heads to Asia on a 16-night journey that includes seven port calls in five different countries and overnight stays in Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City. After sailing two country-intensive cruises in sought-after Japan in March, she will make her way back to Europe for the northern summer.

    Meanwhile, Azamara Onward – the fleet’s latest ship – makes her debut in Australia and New Zealand, arriving in Auckland on February 15, 2024 on her inaugural world cruise.

    Over 15 memorable nights, she will visit seven sought-after destinations in New Zealand and call at popular ports Hobart and Eden on her way to Sydney.

    On 1 March, the ship embarks on a magnificent 21-night voyage from Sydney to Hong Kong, calling at Mooloolaba, Airlie Beach and Cairns (for an overnight stay) before leaving local waters for Papua New Guinea, Palau, and the Philippines.

    Among the many highlights of every itinerary are Azamara’s AzAmazing Celebrations – the line has expanded its famous AzAmazing Evenings to encompass extraordinary cultural events held during the day, onboard and onshore.

    Azamara Journey guests have a wonderful treat in store in Adelaide: an exclusive concert by James Morrison and his band – accompanied by local wines and tapas – followed by an incredible light show at the Adelaide Oval.

    Whether it’s a private concert, a local gastronomic festival or behind-the-scenes performance at a landmark site, AzAmazing Celebrations are a wonderful way to experience yet another dimension of desirable destinations
