The all white Azamara Journey, which joined Celebrity Cruises mid-sized ship brand Azamara Cruises in 2007, underwent a $17.5 million make-over that converted 48 cabins into 32 suites. A new Sunset Bar was added on the aft deck and the ship received the
Celebrity signature venue, Cova Cafe. New decking, carpets and soft furnishings, bedding and artwork were added, as was ship-wide WiFI access. This vessel and Azamara Quest are virtually identical in features and fittings.
Azamara Journey is best suitable for mature couples seeking to get away from the crowds aboard a contemporary ship with a wide range of bars and lounges in the setting of a mid-sized ship.
