    Azamara Pursuit Overview

    Azamara Pursuit

    5
    (from 1 verified customers)

    The Azamara fleet constitutes three of eight identical R-class ships built around 2000. All eight vessels are now owned by three luxury cruise lines, which underlines their popularity. The vessel looks extra sparkling following its 2018 move to the Azamara fleet. The ship is able to access ports not visited by larger vessels. Carrying just 704 passengers, its elegant public spaces are uncrowded. And her name “Pursuit”? Well, it’s a synonym for “Journey” and “Quest”, her identical sister ships.
