Shore excursions are such an important part of cruising. In last weeks blog I talked about the different ways you can explore in a port; a couple of different types of group tours, private tours, and even taxi tours.While it can be worthwhile booking any of these tours, for a seasoned traveler it can get boring seeing a new city in the same old fashion. Others seek something totally unique or off the beaten path while in port. Or there are those that just want a private tour arranged by the cruise line for themselves and their traveling companions. If any of those scenarios speak to you, than Azamara Club Cruises’ “Private Journeys” may be a perfect fit!
Private Journeys allows guests to design any tour they can imagine, or customize any of Azamara’s standard Land Discoveries tours or signature tours. What makes this program so noteworthy is that Azamara has a team of “Destination Insiders”, seasoned world travelers with years of experience sailing aboard their ships, available to assist passengers with creating a perfect tour itinerary. Each team member has been specially selected for his or her unique perspectives on exclusive travel experiences and attentive guest service. Their insightful knowledge of their destinations ensures that every Private Journeys is an unforgettable exploration of culture, tailored just for that guest!
Here are some intriguing examples of the Private Journeys that are possible as sited by Azamara; In Salalah, imagine taking a camel ride for two with a private, local guide through the undulating sands of Oman. Or how special would it be to receive a personal blessing from a monk while visiting an opulent sacred temple in Bangkok, Thailand? The possibilities are endless!
If you would be interested in creating your own personal Private Journey once you’ve made your Azamara cruise reservation, contact the team by submitting a Private Journeys Request Form (found on their website). Do so as early as possible or at least 21 days prior to sail date. Happy Travels!
