2024: A Summer Down Under!

Embark on a voyage of discovery onboard Azamara Journey®.

Natural wonders, native culture, and new immersive experiences are yours to discover as you sail from Australia around New Zealand. Depart from Melbourne, Australia’s cultural capital, to arrive in Sydney after a day at sea for an overnight stay where you’ll enjoy fresh air, unique flavours, and locals who know a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Eden is like a piece of heaven on Earth, where golden beaches, crystal blue waters, and lush green forests await.

Keep an eye out for humpback whales, and head on a cruise of Pambula lake to learn about Sydney rock oysters and enjoy a tasting. Then you’ve got two sailing days to experience all your boutique hotel at sea has to offer. Indulge in a treatment at The Sanctum Spa and dine at specialty restaurants before arriving in New Zealand through the jaw-dropping Milford Sound, a panoramic showcase of towering mountains and cascading waterfalls.

Your Host: Azamara Journey®


A luxurious boutique hotel at sea, the Azamara Journey® is a mid-sized ship with a deck plan that’s intimate but never crowded and offers everything modern voyagers are looking for – plus some unexpected extras. Re-imagined staterooms include modern amenities, furnishings, and European linens. Plus the ship features a large number of staterooms and suites with verandas, perfect for starting your day with fresh sea air and stunning views.
