Azamara is to add a fourth ship to its fleet, the company has announced.
The line, which is being acquired private equity firm Sycamore Partners, is acquiring a vessel that ” is comparable in size to Azamara Pursuit, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest”.
Princess Cruises announced that it was selling Pacific Princess – a sister-ship to Pursuit, Journey and Quest in a previous life – last week.
Following a full-ship renovation, the fourth ship is scheduled to sail for its inaugural season in Europe in 2022.
“The addition of this ship is an important milestone and reflects Sycamore Partners’ commitment to supporting Azamara in its next phase of growth,” said Stefan Kaluzny, Managing Director of Sycamore Partners. “Expanding the fleet will allow Azamara to continue to serve loyal customers, as well as those new to the brand, with more unique Destination Immersion® programming and itineraries.”
“We are thrilled to be expanding our fleet with a fourth ship, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world and better serve our guests,” said Carol Cabezas, President of Azamara. “We look forward to launching even more unique and immersive itineraries and feel this is just the beginning of an exciting growth phase for Azamara.”
