Azamara’s maiden call to Easter Island showcases the cruise line’s commitment to curating distinctive itineraries that offer adventure, cultural enrichment and discovery.  

LONDON – Azamara Cruises – the small-ship cruise line renowned for Destination Immersion and Extended Destination Days – celebrated a historic moment as its latest ship, Azamara Onward, made its maiden call to Easter Island during its World Cruise 2024. This marked the cruise line’s first-ever call to the remote island, known for its mysterious moai statues and rich history.

Passengers aboard Azamara Onward were able to discover Easter Island’s impressive volcanoes, lush grasslands and, of course, majestic moai statues – of which there are nearly 1,000 scattered throughout the island. Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, may be one of the most isolated places in the world, but locals welcomed Azamara guests with open arms, inviting them to learn more about the island’s traditions, cuisine and way of life. 

Travellers interested in joining Azamara’s next adventure to Easter Island should book now to reserve their spot on the cruise line’s 2026 World Cruise. Easter Island is one of the many destinations featured on this 155-night expedition, exploring more than 35 countries. Azamara’s 2026 World Cruise offers 55 late nights and overnights, 60 Extended Destination Days, 3 exclusive World Cruise events and 10 AzAmazing Celebrations, allowing for a deeper connection with each mesmerising wonder and the diverse tapestry of cultures that surround them.
