Azamara Club Cruises has launched 15 new AzAmazing Evenings, the brand’s signature evening events designed to connect guests to the local culture of a destination. AzAmazing Evenings are unique to each location, featuring local talent and performances, and in many occasions are hosted in historic venues including The Odeon of Ancient Ephesus in Turkey and The Solis Theatre in Uruguay.

“Committed to our award-winning Destination Immersion programming, we are constantly looking for new and enhanced experiences ashore to deliver authentic travel moments to our guests, while immersing them with the local culture, food, and people,” said Larry Pimentel, president and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises, in press materials.

A Musical Tribute to the Knights of Rhodes, part of the 10-night Greece Intensive Voyage, is one example of a new AzAmazing Evening that will be offered this year. This musical journey will be held at the historic, colossal Grand Master’s Palace—a palatial structure originally built in the 7th century as a Byzantine Citadel and held by the Crusaders—in Rhodes, Greece. Guests will explore the site’s towers, walls and torch-lit hallways, and then enjoy a musical tribute to the Knights of Rome performed by a four-piece classical orchestra with tenor and soprano.

Another new AzAmazing Evening experience is the Traditional Korean Performance at Busan Culture Center, part of the 14-night Circle Japan Intensive Voyage itinerary. This experience offers guests an exclusive evening at the Busan Cultural Center—a venue dedicated to showcasing Korean heritage, music and art—in Busan, South Korea. Commencing with a cocktail hour, guests will will then enjoy a local performance of Korean folk dances and taekwondo.

AzAmazing Evenings are complimentary and held once a voyage. Agents, secure your clients spot by reserving prior to their departure date. AzAmazing Evenings are offered on sailings seven nights or longer with the exception of transatlantic voyages. Azamara Club Cruises’ will announce the list of 2020 and 2021 AzAmazing Evenings in June 2019.
