what's included on-board?





Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world. Its magnificent harbor made it a logical trading port as far back as the Phoenicians, as well as a departure point for 15th century voyages sponsored by Prince Henry the Navigator, patron of Portuguese explorers. The city is rich in architecture, from Romanesque and Gothic to Post Modern, and criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Today it is seeking a place on the world stage by hosting, in addition to its own active cultural calendar, film festivals, art, fashion, and design shows, book fairs, marathons, and rock concerts.

Madeira has its share of captivating squares, picturesque villages, idyllic landscapes, and stunning views; it also offers some unexpected pleasures. There are numerous parks and gardens – wild and natural, manicured, Oriental in sensibility, and one attached to the villa of an erstwhile prince.

A notoriously festive destination, Tenerife is the biggest, most well-known of Spain's Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa. The volcanic island is characterized by rugged, steep coastline and miles of beaches, popular for kite surfing and swimming. Teide-Pico Viejo, Spain’s tallest peak, towers over the island, and its national park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Enigmatic, electric, and endlessly explorable, Dakar dazzles on the West African coast. Jutting out on the Cape Verde Peninsula, the city is the westernmost point of the African continent, and was an important trading point for European colonial powers. From its more notorious incarnations, Dakar has evolved into a vibrant city that’s a blend of historic French je ne sais quois, modern architecture, and amazing, authentic open-air markets. A shining example of 21st-century Africa, start at Medina, a neighborhood that will give you a real taste of local life with street markets, tiny shops, and restaurants where you’ll want to try bissap, the local tea made with hibiscus, sugar and water.

05 Dec 2022



A tiny slice of Africa surrounded by Senegal, the country’s borders hug the shores of The Gambia River, and the capital city of Banjul is perched right at the river’s mouth on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The city is often overlooked by tourists to Africa—and that’s just fine with us, because it gives you ample opportunity to explore beyond the surface.

07 Dec 2022 - 08 Dec 2022



The economic and cultural crossroads of West Africa, Abidjan is the second-largest French speaking city in the world. As you sail along the Ebrie lagoon into port, you’ll be greeted by a cityscape of gleaming skyscrapers, but beyond the surface, local life pulses to a unique rhythm. The city is divided into ten districts, each with their own distinct feel and tropical soul, and all yours to discover Azamara® on voyages to West Africa. Start in the central district of Le Plateau. The beating heart and business hub of the city, it’s home to some striking examples of modern African architecture, like the towering La Pyramide, and iconic St. Paul Cathedral. The glamorous Cocody district is where you’ll find foreign embassies along wide boulevards, green garden squares, and palm-lined beaches.

09 Dec 2022



Once a sleepy fishing village, Takoradi has prospered since becoming Ghana’s first deepwater seaport in 1928. Along the shore in the south of the city, laid-back beach vibes abound, but explore deeper into the heart of Takoradi (called Taadi by locals), and you’ll uncover a hub of activity that embraces traditional African life and modern commerce.

Our African cruises take you to the continent's western coast. Here, bordered by half a moon-shaped bay shaded by baobab trees, Luanda shines like a beacon. The capital city of Angola, Luanda is a metropolis that connects the region’s colonial past with its bright future. Once ashore, explore Baixa de Luanda (The Old City), where narrow streets lined with classic colonial buildings paint a picture of the Portuguese influence on the city. Then make your way to the Fortress of São Miguel, a UNESCO World Heritage site built in 1576, where embellished wall tiles and artifacts detail the history of the city.

Walvis Bay

Under crystal clear skies and surrounded by huge, golden dunes, discover an adventurous culture in Walvis Bay. Perched across from Pelican Point, the city is sheltered from the rugged surf that stretches north up Namibia’s rocky, fog-bound Skeleton Coast. Venture inland to the rolling sands of the vast Namib Desert for an exotic African safari to spot lions, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos, and more, or kayak in the calm waters of the city’s huge natural lagoon.

At Sea

18 Dec 2022 - 19 Dec 2022


Cape Town

Tucked beneath the storied Cape of Good Hope, South Africa’s capital is awash in contrasts. Mountains meet oceans. Warm trade winds intermingle with icy waters. A decidedly European climate in Africa’s most southernmost city. A world-focus during the 20th century, South Africa’s struggles with colonialism and apartheid have defined Cape Town. A global, multicultural metropolis with a thriving LGBTQ community, today the port city has emerged as a beacon of change. Get a local perspective as you learn about Cape Town’s segregation-era at the District Six Museum. See its past history of artistic censorship at the South African National Gallery. Understand the remaining effects of Apartheid with a township tour.
