The first ever Azamara vessel is set to arrive in Australian waters on 28 December 2015. 

The 686-guest Azamara Quest luxury liner will be setting sail on her maiden voyage from Darwin, on a 16 night Australia and New Zealand cruise departing 15 January 2016. Couples sailing on this voyage will be treated to a night with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in Hobart during their overnight stay in the city. 

The Azamara Quest will sail down under for two months and offer five unique itineraries that feature all of the usual luxury hallmarks of Azamara cruise lines as well as extra on board inclusions and tailor-made 'AzAmazing Evenings' which are customised event nights aimed at showcasing the destination and culture during the voyages.

On the 13 night New Zealand cruise, couples will discover the rich culture of the Maori people as one of the AzAmazing Events. This will include a visit to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington where cruise guests will be welcomed by traditional Maori chiefs. 

Other AzAmazing events include an evening at Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin as part of the 14 night Bali and Barrier Reef cruise and an evening of entertainment at the historic Fort Scratchley in Newcastle on the 10 night Barrier Reef sail from Cairns to Sydney.
