Azamara has confirmed it will deploy its newest ship, Azamara Onward, on a second World Voyage from San Diego to Southampton in 2025. Departing on 6 January 2025, the 155-night voyage will visit 37 countries and include 46 overnights and late nights.
With its 2024 World Voyage already sold out (and waitlisted), Azamara has opened advanced reservations on the 2025 cruise to trade partners, loyalty guests, and past and current world-cruisers by giving them the exclusive opportunity to book first.
“We are thrilled to have our second world cruise aboard Azamara Onward. With 60% of ports on this sailing being different from those on our 2024 world voyage, this itinerary was carefully curated to give even the most well-traveled guests a new perspective on the world,” said Carol Cabezas, President of Azamara.
“Our 2025 world cruise invites travellers to not only see the world, but also take their time in each destination and make memories that will last long after the journey has ended.”
The voyage will see Azamara make its long-awaited return to the Hawaiian Islands with a late-night stay in Honolulu, along with calls in Samoa and Tonga, and an overnight stay in Sydney.
