Azamara unveils 2025-26 voyages with range of maiden port visits
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Azamara Cruises has unveiled its 2025 & 2026 winter sailings, visiting eight maiden ports and less frequented destinations only accessible to smaller ships.

    Azamara’s new sailings include a Grand Voyage circumnavigating South America and back-to-back Caribbean sailings without any sea days.

    “We’re thrilled to be bringing our guests to eight new ports of call in 2025 and 2026, from Scarborough, capital of the small island of Tobago, to Pointe des Galets on the beautiful French island of Réunion,” head of itinerary planning, Azamara Cruises, Michael Pawlus, said.

    “As longer trips continue to trend with our guests, we’ve also added a Grand Voyage that brings guests all the way around South America and Caribbean sailings that guests can combine for more immersive island travel without any days at sea.”

    To cater to guest demand for longer itineraries, Azamara is offering a 79-night Grand Voyage that begins and ends in Miami and immerses guests in destinations all around South America.

    Azamara has also designed its Caribbean itineraries to prioritise days in port, so guests can book back-to-back Caribbean sailings to spend up to 14 days exploring the vibrant culture of each Caribbean island with no days at sea.

    Azamara’s 2025 & 2026 itineraries will visit such maiden ports:

    • Santa Marta, Colombia: Situated between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Caribbean Sea, Santa Marta offers colonial architecture, pristine beaches and rich indigenous cultures.
