Cruise Line Adding Another Cruise Ship

Last week, Royal Caribbean Group announced that they are selling their Azamara cruise line to Sycamore Partners, a leading private equity firm.

Today, Sycamore Partners said that they will be adding a fourth cruise ship to Azamara, a sister ship to their current fleet of Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest and Azamara Pursuit.

The fourth and currently unnamed cruise ship will sail its inaugural season in Europe in 2022 after a full ship renovation.

“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.”

The additional ship, which will be named at a later date, is comparable in size to Azamara Pursuit, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, expanding the fleet’s overall capacity by 33 percent.

With this cruise ship, guests will have the opportunity to visit unique, smaller ports and have a more intimate experience. Together, the four ships will support Azamara’s commitment to enrich immersion around the world.

Prior to launch, the fourth ship will undergo an extensive refurbishment to match its sister ships and Azamara’s upmarket position, as well as offer unique onboard elements. These updates will be similar to the renovations introduced most recently on Azamara Pursuit, bringing guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea.

Information about deployment and itineraries for the newest ship will be available in due course.
