You've never gone island hopping quite like this. And if you have, you know how great it would be to do it twice. Rome gets this voyage started and St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museum, and Sistine Chapel are a must. After three days in the Italian countryside, you'll arrive for an overnight on the island of Malta, in the capital Valletta. A tiny city, surrounded by massive honey-colored limestone walls, it has a lot to protect - Caravaggio's famous "Beheading of St. John the Baptist" is in the cathedral here, the only painting Caravaggio ever signed (in the blood from St. John's throat). But you must also look down; the floor is inlaid marble, depicting the coats of arms of the knights buried underneath.
You'll also stay overnight on the island of Menorca. Azamara's smaller size enables the ship to sail down the canal into the city of Mahon. The top deck offers a great view of this striking cliffside city as we approach the harbor. Striking, too, is the organ in the Church of Santa Maria, as is the church itself. The beaches, though, are where you'll want to be. The water is almost translucent; Punta Prima is one to try. After sunset, there's a club that's actually a series of interconnecting caves up a cliff which makes for the perfect evening activity. Sip your pomada, a drink of local gin mixed with cold, sweet lemon soda, and watch the sun dip into the hugeness of the Mediterranean. The island life never felt better.
Conclude your voyage in Barcelona. Though not an island, this seaside gem of the Mediterranean will not disappoint.

ďStay longer. Experience more." It's the philosophy behind every Azamara Club Cruises“†voyage. It's what brings you to iconic destinations like Monte-Carlo, and offers the opportunity to attend the world famous Monaco Grand Prix. It's what led to complimentary AzAmazing Evenings“, where you can listen to the sounds of a private performance by a 12-piece string orchestra, in the cozy atmosphere of the Odeon, a classic Roman theater. And it's what enables you to go behind-the-scenes of local life, with more time and opportunities to experience local culture in authentic ways thanks to†Destination Immersion“. Go farther, travel deeper, and bring your boutique hotel at sea with you every step of the way.
So much to do. So much time to do it.†
Some things in life shouldn't be rushed, and we believe travel is certainly one of them. Every Azamara voyage features longer and overnight stays in port, so you can experience your destinations at all hours of the day. More time on land offers the opportunity to take a train ride through the deep green mountains of New Zealand, capped off with a traditional meal cooked over a pit oven of hot rocks. With overnight stays, you can spend an evening and following morning at a quaint Bed & Breakfast in the hills of Tuscany. And nights docked in port let you attend a show or two on the other side of the world.†††††
Where in the world would you like to go? From the tropical West Indies to the stunning Mediterranean to the Land Down Under, if there is a destination you've always wanted to experience, there is a good chance you can get there on one of the various Azamara itineraries, taking you to both famous destinations and hidden gem locales. Azamara itineraries seldom repeat ports, so you can make the most of your time spent traveling the world while getting an immersive look into a variety of destinations, all on one voyage. Sit back and relax. Or get out and explore. We'll be here a while.††
When you do choose to come back onboard, you'll be completely taken care of with inclusive amenities, a relaxed atmosphere, and a passionate and friendly staff and crew that will go out of their way to make your voyage one you won't soon forget. Welcome to your home sweet ship. ††
