Azamara marks return to Africa and South America

Cruise ships Azamara Journey and Azamara Pursuit will embark on itineraries in winter 2022

Small-ship cruise line Azamara is returning to South Africa and South America this autumn for the first time since before the pandemic hit in early 2020.

Azamara Journey will embark on six back-to-back South Africa cruises, while Azamara Pursuit will sail along South America’s coastline, including a stop in Rio de Janeiro in time for the city's carnival.

Azamara Pursuit goes back to South America on a 16-night sailing from Lisbon to Rio De Janeiro on 30 November 2022.

Azamara Journey will return to Cape Town on 20 December 2022 to conclude a 21-night western Africa cruise.


The cruise line’s South America itineraries also cover the Antarctic Peninsula, as well as the Beagle Channel and the Strait of Magellan, with stops in the Falkland Islands.

Azamara's strategic itinerary and destination planning director Michael Pawlus said: “With the travel and cruising industries continuing to take significant steps forward, we are thrilled to bring our guests deeper to explore even more hidden gems of the world on our four ships.

“Both South Africa and many South American countries are bucket-list travel destinations for travellers, and we look forward to our guests discovering the rich culture and local life of these unique destinations.”
