15 Night Cruise sailing from Southampton roundtrip aboard Azamara Pursuit.
Like her two sister ships, the sturdy Azamara Pursuit is a mid-sized beauty with a deck plan well-suited to the needs of modern voyagers.
You’ll never feel crowded in the comfortable social spaces of our bars, restaurants, lounges, and Cabaret. Nor will you feel like a sardine jammed in around the pool, where our attentive staff is always ready to offer a complimentary bottled water, soft drink or fresh towel. Staterooms feature modern amenities, furnishings, and European linens. And one of the greatest features of this ship is the large number of staterooms with verandas.
There’s nothing better than opening your door to the fresh sea air and views. Azamara’s friendly ships are an altogether wonderful place to call your home away from home!
A voyage of discovery of the elements: fire and ice, earth and sea. Your journey begins in Southampton, England, so much more than a departure point for celebrated liners. Make your way to your own celebrated departure a little early and explore the wonders of the south of England before heading out to sea. Enjoy your time onboard soaking up the true boutique hotel atmosphere before reaching our first stop, Belfast, Northern Ireland. At Titanic Belfast, learn about the legendary ocean liner and enjoy a museum experience unlike any other.
Highlights of this cruise:
Muse on voyages past as you sail in or out of Southampton, long a maritime center, its yards turning out warships for king and country from the Hundred Years War in the 14-15th centuries, to two world wars in the 20th.
It was the departure point for the Mayflower in 1620, and for the ill-fated Titanic in 1912. The charms of London are not far away, but pray tarry in the south to explore other wonders, including Bath, with its natural hot springs and stunning architecture and the mysterious megaliths of Stonehenge, or venture all the way west to Lands End, and the wild moorlands and pirate haunts of Cornwall.
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast in the early 20th century had the largest and most productive shipyard in the world, gaining global renown with the launch of the RMS Titanic. Located on the slipways where she was built is a stunning new museum, opened in time for the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s only voyage and tragic demise.
Today the city and riverfront are undergoing a 21st century transformation, but many exuberant Victorian and Edwardian buildings still sport the carved heads of kings and queens.
As you explore the city, keep an eye out for “the murals.” These somewhat troubling freelance works appearing on building walls provide insight into the period known simply as “The Troubles.”
Domain of the Norse thunder god, Thor, and shaped by fire and ice, Iceland’s volcanic landscape is a spectacular collage of lava fields, craters, waterfalls, and imposing mountain ranges.
Vast geothermal springs power the spray of geysers, provide residents with the hot water that heats their homes, and fills the warm public pools where locals go to relax and catch up with friends. Visitors are encouraged to join in the fun.
Reykjavik itself is a 21st century European city, with fine restaurants, cozy cafes, and intriguing museums and galleries.
On a voyage with Azamara, guests see a night-and-day difference. And when we take you on a dramatic journey across Ísafjarðardjúp Bay to Ísafjörður, Iceland, you’ll experience a lot more day, thanks to long summer days with nearly 24-hours of sunlight and longer stays in port. Nestled in the northwest region of Iceland, tucked away in the North Atlantic, the towering peaks of this unspoiled wilderness welcome you.
This remote fishing town, the largest in the West Fjords, has long enjoyed a prosperous fishing industry thanks to the rich fishing waters found off the coast. Created by ancient volcanoes, first settled by Viking Helgi Hrolfsson in the ninth century, and established as a trading post in the late 16th century, Ísafjörður has a long history—and the people and this place have many stories to tell.
Akureyri is considered a city, in fact Iceland’s second largest, even though its total population is only about 18,000.
Set on the shores of one of Iceland’s most spectacular fjords, with a backdrop of countryside earth tones and greens and perennially snow-capped mountains, it is quite a sight to behold.
Weather patterns here are a bit of a puzzle - only 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, summer temperatures can soar as high as 60°F. No surprise then that a main attraction is the Botanical Gardens, where over 2,000 species of native and non-native plants flourish without benefit of a greenhouse.
Nestled within a deep fjord and surrounded by dramatic snow-capped mountains lies Seyðisfjörður—a quirky, charming enclave on Iceland’s eastern coast. Built on the back of the Icelandic herring fishing industry, there’s nowhere on Earth quite as picturesque, peaceful, or peculiar as Seyðisfjörður, and, with Azamara Club Cruises’® smaller ships, we think we fit right in.
One of the most historically and architecturally interesting towns in East Iceland, Seyðisfjörður is home to a community of colorful wooden buildings dating back to the 19th century, and a quick stroll through town to take them in is a must. Be sure to stop at the famed Blue Church along the way—its distinct powder blue hue and architecture make it one of the most recognizable landmarks in Iceland.
