LONDON – Azamara Cruises – the small-ship cruise line renowned for Destination Immersion and Extended Destination Days – unveil its 2025 & 2026 winter sailings, visiting 8 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. With multiple Extended Destination Days on every sailing, travellers can spend more time exploring without ever feeling rushed.

“At Azamara we are always looking to deliver new travel experiences for our guests, from maiden ports to industry-leading itineraries. Azamara is set to visit eight new ports of call in 2025 and 2026, including Scarborough, capital of the small island of Tobago, to Pointe des Galets on the beautiful French island of Réunion,” said David Duff, Managing Director UK at Azamara Cruises. “We know that UK travellers are also looking to sail for longer, so we are excited to be launching a new 79-night Grand Voyage in 2026 that will take guests to 47 ports in 24 countries and include a total of seven overnights in the likes of Buenos Aires, Argentina and San Antonio, Chile”.

Stuart Pearce, Head of Trade Sales UK at Azamara Cruises comments, “The demand for increased time in port continues to surge amongst UK travellers. So with more overnights than any other cruise line, and now with new sailings announced that offer multiple Extended Destination Days and exciting maiden destinations, Azamara continues to lead the way for Destination Immersion cruising in our market and globally”.

Stuart adds: “To show our ongoing support for travel partners around the UK, agents will continue to receive rewards on all new bookings made with Azamara, including the new 2025 and 2026 sailings, available through the Azamara Rewards platform”.

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 0 days at sea.
