Azamara Onward joined destination-focused cruise line Azamara in March 2021. The ship was purchased from Carnival Corp. -- having sailed for Princess Cruises as Pacific Princess since 2002 -- and underwent extensive refurbishment work before entering service in May 2022.  Constructed in 1999, Azamara Onward began life as R Three, part of the defunct Renaissance Cruises R-Class ships, along with Azamara Journey (formerly R Six), Azamara Quest (formerly R Seven), and Azamara Pursuit (R Eight). 

Azamara Onward Deck Plans

The reimagined 670-passenger Azamara Onward bears the same blueprint and deck plans as fleetmates Journey, Quest and Pursuit, and has the same layout and upmarket feel onboard. Accommodation on Azamara Onward features inside, outside, balcony and suite-class cabins, starting at 143 square feet. There are two categories of balcony cabins: Club Balcony and Club Balcony Plus. Both measure 175 square feet, plus a 40-square-foot balcony.  There are four categories of suites, and the entry-level Club Continent Suites measure 266 square feet with a 60-square-foot balcony. Club Spa Suites, located by the spa, measure 414 square feet with a balcony measuring 60 square feet, and the Club Ocean Suites measure 478 square feet with a balcony measuring 173 square feet. The largest cabins are the Club World Owner's Suites, which measure 603 square feet with a 233-square-foot balcony and feature separate living and bedroom areas.

Azamara Onward's seven dining venues include Discoveries Restaurant, the ship's main dining room which offers flexible dining at breakfast, lunch and dinner, with no assigned seating. It is also the place for the line’s Destination Immersion dinner buffet featuring local flavours from the ship’s ports of call.  Other eateries include the Windows Cafe casual buffet and The Patio, a casual pool grill option by day and the Swirl Top candlelit alfresco restaurant serving Destination Immersion menus in the evening.  The two speciality restaurants are Aqualina, serving a six-course Italian menu, and the steak and seafood restaurant Prime C. There is also 24-hour room service. Public areas include five bars and lounges, the Drawing Room Library and Cabaret Lounge. Azamara's signature White Nights party, with canapes, drinks and a live DJ on the pool deck, will also take place on voyages of seven days or more.

Azamara Onward Excursion Program

As with the rest of the fleet, guests can expect a focus on the destination, with excursions and activities that go way beyond standard city tours. Azamara Onward features overnight stays and docks at smaller, less-travelled ports. The excursion program is curated with independent, local tour operators and features experiences such as making mozzarella cheese by hand at the home of an Italian family and visiting food markets frequented by locals with the ship's executive chef. Back onboard, Azamara Onward will also showcase AzAmazing Evenings focused on destinations the ship visits. 

Azamara Onward's Maiden Voyage & Itineraries

Azamara Onward entered service in May 2022. Azamara Onward 2022 itineraries will focus on Europe, sailing in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegean and Black Sea to destinations including Italy, Greece, Croatia, France, Turkey and Africa.

Azamara Onward Specs

Azamara Onward is 30,277 gross tons and carries 670 passengers at double capacity, with 400 crew.

Azamara may have smaller ships that other cruise companies, but their entertainment and onboard activities live up to the standards of the mega cruise ships on the oceans of today. 

Discover Broadway-styled shows, musicals and performances as you sit back and enjoy with your favourite cocktail in hand. Their wonderful performance schedule will keep you entertainment throughout your cruise. Don't forget their special performances and shows such as comedy, magicians and unique instrumentalists. If you want something a little more relaxing, there are plenty of choices available around the ship in their many bars and socialising areas.

If keeping active on your holiday is important to you, then you will find all you need at the well-equipped onboard gym and fitness centre.

Best for...

Baby boomers, older Gen Xers and foodies who prize destination immersion and experiences rather than things

Not the best for...

Big-ship cruisers looking for lots of onboard activities and late-night parties

Who goes on Azamara cruise ships?

Azamara primarily attracts baby boomers who are active and well-travelled, and looking for port-intensive itineraries that include marquee cities and offbeat places. About 60 percent come from North America, 18 percent from the U.K., 11 percent from Australia and New Zealand, and the remainder from the rest of the world.


Do I have to dress up on a Azamara cruise?

Yes and no. The dress code does prohibit bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps, bathing suits and shorts in the dining room or speciality restaurants, and jeans are not permitted anywhere after 6 p.m., but formal wear is never required. In general, most women wear sundresses and trouser and blouse outfits in the evening, while men will put on nice pants and collared shirts. In the casual Windows Cafe, cruisers can dress more casually even at dinner but are always required to wear shoes and a cover-up or shirt.


Is everything free on Azamara cruises?

No, but the fare is semi-inclusive, with items like select standard spirits, international beers and wines, gratuities, bottled water, soft drinks, speciality coffees and teas, self-service laundry, shuttle service to and from port communities (where available) and concierge services for personal guidance and reservations all included. All cruises, except transatlantic and transpacific sailings, also include one special evening shore excursion, referred to as an AzAmazing Evening, a private onshore experience that is specially arranged by the cruise line for its passengers. On top of all the standard inclusions, suite passengers also receive English butler service and free dining in speciality restaurants. Extra costs include speciality dining, shore excursions, Wi-Fi, spa treatments and retail store purchases.


What are Azamara's most popular activities?

Azamara's shoreside activities are the real attention-getters. Shore excursions are divided into different types (Taste Local, Bike Local, Meet Local) and often sell out. Many passengers take advantage of overnight excursion options to inland cities like Berlin, Madrid and Moscow or to UNESCO World Heritage sites like Bagan and Angkor Wat that require full days or longer. In the evening, passengers gather for shows, one of which is an at-sea version of New York supper club and cabaret, Feinstein's 54 Below with Broadway talent, along with local dancers and musicians from the destinations. Enrichment lectures with the World Wildlife Fund Guest Speaker Series are well attended, and foodies hit the culinary demonstrations and wine tastings. There are ship parties, like ABBA Night, dancing in the Living Room and occasionally karaoke, but destination immersion rules.
