Azamara Club Cruises had its two ships, the Journey and Quest, met in Barcelona in earlier this week.
Azamara said the double port call was in celebration of National Best Friends Day on June 8.
It is the first times the ship met since September 2013 in Venice.
n honor of this unique event, a number of perfect pairing activities fit for the best of friends took place for guests onboard, as well as social contests for those tuning in from afar.
“Our Destination Immersion promise means that our boutique hotels at sea often are oceans apart as they chart our exceptional, unique itineraries,” said Larry Pimentel, President & CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “The reuniting of Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest after almost 4 years is a significant reminder that, while we deliver unmatched experiences on land across the globe, we always collectively come together to up the ante with new and exciting offerings for our guests.”
Best Friends Day is being celebrated onboard with a number of unique guest experiences and offers. A Chef’s Table raffle will take place, awarding at random a lucky stateroom winner on each ship a dinner for two. In the spirit of honoring pairs, the corresponding stateroom on the sister ship will also be declared a winner.
As the ships sailed together out of the Barcelona port, the occasion was marked with a sail-away party on the pool decks of both the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Azamara Journey’s Cruise Director Eric DeGray led a fleet wide toast as guests onboard both ships simultaneously cheered in celebration, followed by a night of dancing under the stars.
