Could it be possible that one cruise could make stops in thirty-seven countries? That’s the one-of-kind trip the cruise line Azamara is offering wanderlust travelers beginning in 2025. 

For those looking to spin the globe without booking multiple hotels and flights, the cruise will commence in San Diego and 155 days later end over the pond in the UK. 

What To Expect

The president of Azamara, Carol Cabezas, shared some insight with Travel + Leisure regarding why cruises like this continue to break ground.

“With 60% of ports on this sailing being different from those on our 2024 world voyage, this itinerary was carefully curated to give even the most well-traveled guests a new perspective on the world,” Cabezas says.

“Our 2025 world cruise invites travelers to not only see the world but also take their time in each destination and make memories that will last long after the journey has ended.” 

Azamara will not only offer 46 overnight stops to allow passengers to feel more of a cultural experience to understand the special nuances of each destination, but it will also include 13 different free land events like visiting the world’s largest Buddhist temple in Semarang, Indonesia and the official bon voyage gala in San Diego.

Travelers boarding the Azamara cruise line are further incentivized by a $4,000 onboard credit and $3,000 to spend on shore excursions, roundtrip business class airfare, a premium beverage package for two, and weekly laundry service.

The 2025 cruise will become available to book here on November 10, after the company’s 2024 version unsurprisingly sold out.

Those planning to travel should know that Azamara plans to drop the vaccine requirements for all cruises starting and ending in the United States on December 1 and for all cruises starting and ending in Europe on March 11, 2023. According to the company, all other sailings will still require proof of vaccination and a booster shot. 

This will become the second world cruise that the company will have executed after successfully sailing to 40 countries on six continents on the Azamara Onward, in May 2022.
