8 Azamara AzAmazing Evenings in Port for Wine Lovers, Sports Lovers, Gourmands, Culture Seekers, Theatre, History or Music Lovers

Family-Owned and Operated Since 1998, Cruises-N-More Offers Great Deals, Great Prices and Great Amenities

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) -  This is the perfect cruise line for destination connoisseurs. The feeling that you've engaged with the real character and people of a new place is what makes travel so satisfying. Azamara calls it Destination Immersion® and makes it possible with late night or overnight stays on over half of all port visits -- more than any other cruise line. This spring, Azamara has taken Destination Immersion to a whole new level with AzAmazing Evenings(SM). These complimentary onshore events offer an up-close experience of local traditions -- dance, music, theater and cuisine -- in gorgeous private settings and landmarks.

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment Concert in St. Michael's Cave marked the first of the AzAmazing Evenings exclusive onshore events, now included in all Azamara voyages, except transatlantic. The event was a complete success and guests were wowed by the renowned Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band, followed with an extraordinary display of fireworks.

8 Azamara AzAmazing Evening Adventures:

1. For Wine Lovers: Guests on Azamara Quest's Monte-Carlo to Andalucia voyage will enjoy a complimentary AzAmazing Evenings event at the Cordoniu Cellars. The Cordoniu family has been producing Spain's famous sparkling Cava wine since the 16th Century. On this visit guests will learn how Cava is made, sample the varieties paired with regional specialties, and be treated to a stunning flamenco performance across six stages, with a chance to meet and chat with the performers afterwards.

2. For Sports Lovers: Azamara Quest's Springtime Along the Cote D'Azur voyage will take them to the charming port of Sete, France, where they will watch the ancient and colorful sport of water jousting, found only in this region of the world. During this AzAmazing Evenings event guests will share ringside seats on the Royal Canal, and enjoy the unique spectacle, along with a fine array of local food and libations, including French wines, shellfish, tapenade and savory canapés.

3. For Gourmands: During Azamara Quest's Basque Country to the Channel Islands voyage, gourmands will experience an evening of Basque cuisine at Azurmendi, a three-star Michelin restaurant. Guests will be treated to traditional foods with a modern twist by Chef Eneko Atxa with time to tour the gardens and wine cellar beforehand and watch appetizers being prepared at food stalls in the grand dining room as they listen to ancient txalaparta music.

4. For Festive Culture-Seekers: Guests on Azamara Journey's Greek Isles & Cyprus, Suez Canal to Oman & Dubai voyage will enjoy an immersive evening at Limassol, Cyprus. There, guests will be transported to Omodus Village to explore this traditional mountain village of narrow cobblestone lanes. They will enjoy a private section of the square where dancers representing Cyprus' different regions will perform as they sample local wines and mezes.

5. For Theatre Lovers: An evening at the ballet awaits guests on Azamara Quest's Baltic Rendezvous & Kiel Fireworks voyage. This AzAmazing Evenings experience is held at the famous Mikkhailovsky Theater, where guests will be treated to a red carpet entrance, complete with champagne before sitting down to gala performance exclusively for Azamara guests. Before this exquisite evening of ballet in the beautifully renovated theater, guests will enjoy a regal greeting by the Russian Horn Capella orchestra.

6. For History Lovers: Azamara Journey's Vatican to the Acropolis voyage will feature a complimentary AzAmazing Evenings experience at a typical Piedigrotta, in Sorrento, Italy. The Neapolitan festival from medieval times will be transported back to ancient Naples. Guests will wander through an authentic village, set in a lovely garden along with singers, dancers and musicians dressed in 19th Century costumes as they enjoy medieval music and sample delicacies at realistic market stalls along the way.

7. For Music Lovers: Overlooking the Amalfi and Bay of Salerno, guests on Azamara Quest's Footsteps of Napoleon & Amalfi Coast will enjoy an evening at the village of Ravello, Italy. Perched on a cliff, the village is home to Villa Rufolo and the beautiful gardens that inspired Richard Wagner's second movement of Parsifal. During the evening they will be treated to stunning views of the sea as well as a classical concert followed by Prosseco and Italian sweets.

8. For Jetsetters: A beachside party awaits guests on Azamara Journey's Azamara Summer Favorites voyage, at lively Ibiza, Spain. Guests will dance the night way to a 60s-inspired retro party at the famous Nassau Beach Club, host to international jetsetters and Hollywood celebrities. 

AzAmazing Evenings are complimentary, held once a voyage and are encouraged to be reserved prior to departure date.

Azamara Club Cruises, with just 694 guests per voyage, is a boutique cruise line offering an intimate on-board experience. For those who enjoy a sophisticated yet relaxed style of cruising with a focus on destinations, Azamara offers the perfect vacation.

Azamara's two ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, sail year-round to 174 ports worldwide, and provide insiders' knowledge of the best sights, museums, shops and restaurants along the way. This allows Azamara guests to experience a port, not just visit it, through what is a true "Destination Immersion," according to Cruises-N-More Vice President and Owner Tiffany Neidhardt.

There are some exceptions, such as an AzAmazing Evenings event will not be available on the Azamara Quest November 13, 2013, sailing.

Because Azamara Club Cruises incurs costs for each participating guest, refunds are not available, there is a deadline for cancelling and there is a cancellation fee if you do not cancel and do not attend.
