Azamara Club Cruises, one of the world’s most sophisticated and upmarket cruise line, announces its first-ever sailing from India. The 13-day Spice Route Voyage on Azamara Quest starts from Mumbai on November 26, 2014 and passes through Goa, Kochi, Maldives, Colombo, Galle and Chennai.
The cruise will then set sail from Chennai on December 9, 2014 for another 13 days (Spice Route – II Voyage) across the Bay of Bengal passing through Andaman Islands, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
The cruise will allow guests to immerse themselves in the breathtaking views of the land destinations and soak in the culture of South Asia with each shore excursion including an exclusive evening that captures the sights, sounds, and tastes of the destination.
A signature feature of Azamara Club Cruises is the AzAmazing Evening - a bespoke event allowing for destination immersion. During the Spice Route Voyage, cruisers will get a glimpse into the culture and traditions of Kerala during the stay at Kochi. A painted elephant will welcome them to a Kerala celebration at Vivanta by Taj Malabar.
Passengers can stroll through the lawns and explore an assembled marketplace featuring tea and toddy shops, an astrologer, potter, cane weaver, and a Mehendi artist creating delicate henna tattoos. Enjoy drinks and desserts as you’re entertained by expressive Kathakali dancers in elaborate costumes and make-up. Also witness performances of Mohiniyattam and Kalaripayattu (a martial arts dance using spears, daggers and swords).
