Azamara Cruise Suspension Update: October 6, 2020

Unfortunately, the world is still confronted with the many complexities resulting from COVID-19. We continue to diligently work with the Royal Caribbean Group’s Healthy Sail Panel, international governments and health authorities on the most effective return to service plan. With that in mind, we have come to the decision to suspend Azamara’s 2020-2021 winter sailings and return to service for our 2021 spring season in Europe.


I continue to believe that up to and including now, in the middle of all these suspensions, this is the best time to book a cruise for the future. The deals are sweet, the incentives strong, and the cancellation policies are more flexible than ever. Use the contact form or call me at 844-483-6669 for unbiased information and assistance with either a cruise that has been canceled or to dream about your next one.

Azamara Cruise Suspension Update: September 17, 2020

Azamara has made the decision to re-deploy Azamara Pursuit’s spring voyages in Asia and Japan.  Following the ship’s scheduled drydock at the end of March, we will bring the ship directly back to Europe for a series of new 7-night Greece Intensive voyages, which will begin on May 9, 2021.  The below sailings are therefore cancelled:

Today Azamara, part of the Royal Caribbean Group, announced the extension of their voluntary suspension through October 31, 2020 to coincide with the announcement from Cruise Line International Association (CLIA).

Formal Azamara Cruise Suspension Announcement

As the world continues to confront the many challenges resulting from COVID-19, we continue to diligently work with international government and health authorities on the most effective return to service plan. 

As a result, Azamara will be extending the suspension of global operations for all sailings departing on-or-before October 31, 2020, as well as the Azamara Quest sailings on November 4 and 14, 2020.

Since the beginning of the cruise suspension in March 2020 I have believed (hoped?) that cruises would resume in 2020. So far I’ve been wrong (and have cancelled — so far! — six personal cruises that I had booked and re-booked) and although I still have one more booked for New Years Eve, with this latest Azamara Cruise suspension, my hope for the return of cruises in 2020 is dwindling.
