Azamara Onward's 2022 Europe inaugural to start in Monte Carlo

Azamara Onward's christening/maiden voyage is set for spring 2022 from Monte Carlo to Venice.

Azamara's fourth ship will debut with 22 European itineraries and three new land explorations.

True to the Azamara brand's destination immersion focus, half of Azamara Onward's voyages will give more time to explore a single country’s hidden gems. Itineraries will also provide 85 late nights and 21 overnights in port.

Inaugural deployment includes voyages of seven to 15 nights with the opportunity to explore Constanta and Odessa during a Black Sea trip and to take part in a PerryGolf Mediterranean trip. New land explorations are in Greece, Turkey's Cappadocia and Istanbul, along with cruises to Croatia, Italy, Istanbul, Spain and beyond.

Wondrous Cappadocia

This new four-night pre-cruise or three-night post-cruise adventure features Cappadocia’s Goreme Open-Air Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and an evening at Cave restaurant for The Turkish Night Show. Travelers can learn how Turkish carpets are hand-woven and will get a chance to make pottery at a ceramic and tile center.

Stay local in Istanbul

This two-night pre- or post-cruise program immerses participants in Istanbul with a half-day tour of Beylerbeyi Palace and local food experiences including Kebap House, a meal of today’s Ottoman cuisine. A cultural evening gives the chance to witness a spiritual and traditional performance called The Sema Ceremony, which originated in the 13th century as a form of physically active meditation.

Mythological Greece

And a new five-night tour pre- or post-cruise focuses on the Greek gods, mythology and rich history of Greece. Travelers will visit several archaeological sites in Athens, Olympia, Delphi and Cape Sounion, including the Acropolis and the Sanctuary of Delphi. A traditional Greek folkloric show with live music and dance and a farewell dinner at Dionysus restaurant beneath the Acropolis are included.
