Hiya Billy, I got to check that out.

Hello everybody,

as Azamara Cruises is a Celebrity Cruises affiliate, I am moving this thread to the Celebrity Cruises sub-forum.

Concierge class service through out the ship. No formal dinners, much smaller and more intimate! I can't wait to see the price tag on this cruise.

IslandCruz-This sounds like it is going to be quite a pricey operation but a smaller,deluxe ship definitely has a market.I wonder just how expensive it is going to be!Chef Ken sounds like he is ready to book!

Bon Voyage,

Pricing isn't that bad for what you get. Look at these prices for a 14-day cruise! These are two of the R series ships from Renaissance Cruises.

I am interested in this new venture - although it is mostly a rebranding of the Celebrity Xplorer venture. The thing is we always cruise with our son and these ships don't appear especially kid friendly although they do accept bookings for minors.

Hello everybody,

IMHO this new cruise line is basically an Oceania Cruises clone. RCL wanted to buy Oceania last year but they didn't get them so they're now launching a direct competitor, instead - even using the same class of ships.

I agree with Raoul
They changed a few things so not exactly like Oceania but very close.
The pricing for the longer cruises are close to Oceania's prices with their 2for 1 fare& free air something that Azamara does not offer (yet)
The only good part is they do Bermuda

Time will tell.
Oceania cruises sell out pretty quick so there may be a market for this line

Roughly about $150 a day is not too expensive. What makes it a challenge for most of us in the US would be the length of the cruise where a large number of us take 7 day cruises or less.

just wondering about the two ships - looks like the BLUE DREAM and BLUE MOON from Pullmantours?? How many owners did these ships already have now and why. I remember Renaissance, Delphin, Pullmantours, how long will this ownership last? Are these cruisers that attractive???
