Sometimes on a cruise you can get the feeling that you’ve just scraped the surface of a destination, that you’ve not had enough time to really get to grips with everything that there is to see. Azamara Club Cruises like to give you the most time in port to help you enjoy the sights and relax as much as possible, and with AzAmazing Evenings the cruise line takes this concept even further.
With the exception of transatlantic sailings, every single Azamara cruise includes on AzAmazing evening that guests can enjoy in a choice destination. These are all carefully designed and tailored to give the best experience possible.
Every AzAmazing Evening consists of a private tour, to a certain landmark or building that is iconic of the port that you’re visiting, to give that authentic experience that is unrivalled. You’ll then be able to enjoy getting to know local cultures through live performances of theatre, dance or music, or through a special meal consisting of the finest local cuisines for which the region is known.
Some of the examples that are available truly are incredible. For example you could enjoy a performance on Gibraltar by the Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band. But rather than simply taking place in a typical performance hall, you’ll be sat in the auditorium in St Michael’s Cave, amongst the stalactites and stalagmites.
You could see traditional boat jousting events in the south of France, or perhaps live flamenco dancing as you sip on Cava at a winery in Barcelona. In Cannes you can tour the Chateau de la Napoule, with canapés and Provence wines served and live jugglers, fire-dancers and ‘wizards’ for a whole evening of Medieval entertainment. Or perhaps an evening of opera and fine Italian foods and wines on a hillside castle in Tuscany is more appealing. Every AzAmazing Evening is popular, so all you need to do is book your place as early as possible so you don’t miss out.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re free?
