Up-market travelers can enjoy immersing themselves virtually in captivating cultures and unique destinations on the cruise line’s newly relaunched website www.AzamaraClubCruises.com. Offering a more intuitive navigation and wrapped in new vivid colors and graphics, the new website’s rich video, gorgeous destination photography and valuable information virtually transport visitors aboard an extraordinary Azamara voyage.

“We are delighted to offer travelers and our valued travel agent partners the most function-rich and aesthetically engaging version of AzamaraClubCruises.com,” said Edie Bornstein, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Azamara Club Cruises. “Our newly relaunched website embodies our hallmark of delivering destination-immersive travel experiences. And the new Azamara website also is mobile-optimized, so travelers can explore the world virtually with Azamara from their smartphone or iPad, no matter where they physically are.”

Upon arrival at the homepage, visitors will be greeted by an interactive Azamara globe, which puts the world of destination immersion at their fingertips. Visitors can ‘spin’ the globe and select the region or port for concise information about the exciting destinations where the cruise line’s two ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, sail.

Visitors also can search for a remarkable Azamara destination-immersive voyage from whichever AzamaraClubCruises.com page they are on, with choices in destinations, departure ports, month of travel and length of voyages. The new website is seamlessly integrated with the Azamara booking system so that visitors can instantly and securely make their Azamara voyages reservation online.

The new website features a straight-forward navigation menu at the top of the homepage. When visitors select one of four menu headers: Destinations, Plan Your Voyage, Life Onboard and Community, a site map reveals all the website’s pages for quick and easy movement from any page to any other AzamaraClubCruises.com page.

 The Community pages on AzamaraClubCruises.com also invite visitors to join Azamara’s online network.  Integrated with the various social media sites as well as loyalty and current members sites, former and future guests of Azamara can share their “Azamazing” adventures with other members; share pictures and videos; and learn a new recipe from the blog. In addition, visitors can research or relive the onboard experience from home with virtual tours, videos, interactive deck plans and the “You’ll Love Where We Take You” destination-immersion videos featuring Azamara’s own destination expert Claudius Docekal.

Along the bottom of the AzamaraClubCruises.com’s homepage are sliding panels that highlight the latest Azamara news, current special offers and promotions, and other useful information to help visitors make an informed choice for a destination-immersive travel experience. Currently, the website quick-access panel is featuring Azamara’s new Extended Voyages offer, which provides savings for travelers booking two or more consecutive voyages for a custom grand adventure at sea.

 Additional content planned to deploy throughout 2011 include a World Events Calendar; easy-to-search Land Discoveries and Azamara Cruisetours engine; more in interactivity and social capabilities added to Azamara Globe; and enhanced integration of the Azamara blog and social media components.
