It has been a busy week of news for Azamara and the NoFlyCruises team is struggling to keep up!

First, we learned of a new owner – the private equity company Sycamore Partners – and we now understand that the luxury, small-ship line has also acquired a new ship, the former Pacific Princess. The former Princess Cruises ship will be renovated and join the fleet of three sister ships in due course.

Azamara will now operate four ships that all came from the Renaissance Cruises fleet. Azamara Journey (Originally MS R Six), Azamara Quest (R Seven) and more recently Azamara Pursuit (R Eight) and of course the new ship entering in 2022 (R Three).

Azamara does not appear to have any no-fly cruises on sale at present, but the launch of Azamara Pursuit in 2018 was a big nod to the UK market. The ship was renovated in the UK, launched in the UK (with four no-fly cruises from Southampton) and the Godmother is British (Lucy Huxley). This leaves us to speculate that we could see some no-fly cruises on board the new ship in 2022 and possibly more fleet wide in 2023. We shall see.

Azamara, if you are reading, please make it happen.
