Azamara Onward’s godmother revealed 

Beth Santos will christen the ship in Monte Carlo in May

Azamara has revealed Azamara Onward‘s godmother is Beth Santos, the founder and CEO of global community and lifestyle brand Wanderful. 

Santos launched Wanderful as a travel blog in 2009, and more than a decade later it has attracted a community of 45,000 women with an active online social network. The brand also organises events and group trips. 

Santos created the Women in Travel Summit in 2014 and launched the Bessie Awards, which honour women who have made an impact in the travel industry. She also founded Wanderfest, the first major outdoor travel festival by and for women.

Azamara Onward will be christened by Santos in Monte Carlo on May 2, before the ships sets sail on an 11-night itinerary, with stops including Florence, Rome and Amalfi, before concluding with an overnight stay in Venice.

Azamara’s president Carol Cabezas said: “As a leader in the travel industry with a commitment to inclusion and passion for discovering destinations around the world, Beth is an ideal godmother for our newest ship. 

“We are inspired by Beth’s ambition to shape the future of travel, and our decision to name her as our godmother reaffirms Azamara’s commitment to innovative and immersive cruising experiences. We look forward to the many ways in which Beth can deepen our connection with women and destinations around the globe as we continue to grow as an independent cruise line.”

Santos first cruised at the age of two with her family, and said: “I am honoured to be chosen as the godmother of Azamara Onward. I believe travel is about challenging your preconceptions, trying new things, and taking the time to immerse yourself in a destination. 

“I love that Azamara is encouraging travellers to do this through thoughtfully curated itineraries, intimate-size ships, and overnight stays, creating moments for us to look deeper into the world around us.”
