April 14, 2016 – Add Azamara Club Cruises to the overnight excursions programs recently rolled out by other brands owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. The new ‘Overnight Adventures’ program with Azamara is more extensive though, with two and three-day land excursions.
Extended Land Excursions
Once in port, guests on Azamara can explore exotic locales and cities through these added days providing more time to connect with new and unique cultures, local foods, and the overall character of the destination. Following the overnight stays, guests will rejoin the ship at the next port of call to continue their cruise.
A dedicated team of expert guides lead each excursion. The Overnight Adventures program includes transportation, hotel and meal accommodations, so the guests will have a seamless transition from ship to shore.
Examples of Overnight Adventures
Ancient Temples of Bagan
This two-day expedition reveals the countless mysteries hidden within the richest archeological site in Asia. Bagan was founded in 849AD and its home to 3,000 ancient pagodas, temples and monuments spread out over 26 square miles. Stand at the Sunset Temple and watch in amazement as the sky bursts into color, just as the ancients once did. One morning visit a bustling local market, and by afternoon be exploring a collection of ruins that make up one of the architectural and archeological wonders of the world.
Nazareth, Galilee and Jerusalem
For history buffs and biblical scholars, this is a moving opportunity to retrace the life of Christ and explore the world’s holiest city. Travel to the River Jordan and set foot on the very shores where Jesus was baptized. Later, imagine hearing Christ’s famed sermon given at the Mount of Beatitudes and visit the ruins of a synagogue where he once preached. Come nightfall, arrive in Jerusalem. Day two is spent on the narrow streets of the Old City. Visit the Western Wall and follow the Stations of the Cross on a journey that travels back thousands of years.
Venice and Florence: Grand Italian Adventure
Guests will experience Italy’s most architecturally rich and artful cities beginning with a full day in Venice. Climb the great staircase of the ornate Doge’s Palace on a guided tour, and then, join the clamoring performers in St. Mark’s Square. Of course, no visit would be complete without a look inside St. Mark’s Cathedral. On day two, it’s off to Florence for a stroll along its Renaissance streets and a day brimming with works by Michelangelo and other masters. The day includes ample time to shop Florentine jewelers and the city’s famed boutiques.
Desert Night in Oman
Bound across the rolling dunes of Oman on an unforgettable Bedouin adventure, this desert spectacular starts with a journey to breathtaking lagoons, cascading waterfalls and seaside retreats. Come afternoon, guests will venture across the sands to a Bedouin camp to enjoy an evening of drinking, dancing and traditional barbecue. The night’s accommodations? A resplendent Bedouin tent filled with every appointment for extreme comfort and oneness with the desert.
