Royal Caribbean subsidiary Azamara Club Cruises has announced plans to expand its fleet of ships offering all inclusive cruises.
Azamara has entered into an agreement to purchase a sister ship to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, with delivery set to take place in March of next year.
The ship is comparable in size to Journey and Quest, according to a statement.
Each of its existing ships has a capacity of 690 guests.
“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.”
The boutique cruise line takes guests to over 200 ports in 70 countries, including a significant offering in the Caribbean.
