Discover Italy, Greece and the Adriatic


April 1, 2017 | View PDF

You look at travel magazines and think, yes, I want to go where the scenery is spectacular, the food is amazing, the villages are from a movie set and ancient cities are from a fairy tale. Fortunately this is possible, and we've done all the planning for a height-of-summer voyage that has it all. Set sail for 10 nights aboard the Azamara Quest, to discover Italy's captivating coastline, the picturesque towns and legendary landscapes of Greece, and experience first-hand how the Adriatic is cultured, beautiful - and loads of fun!

Not familiar with Azamara cruises? They offer delightfully intimate, club-like boutique hotels at sea with deck plans well-suited to the needs of modern voyagers. Plus, the sturdy mid-sized ships can take you to ports where larger ships won't fit.

Highlights of this exciting voyage include the Amalfi Coast, Malta's Renaissance city, Corfu's gorgeous beaches and bays, scenic cruising to beautiful Kotor at the end of a fjord, and the marble streets and ramparts of Dubrovnik.

Included complimentary, an AzAmazing EveningSM event allows you to immerse yourself in Valletta's history and culture with an enchanting evening of chamber music at the "Sacra Infermeria" or the Holy Infirmary as you relive the days of the 16th century Knights of St. John who originally built the hospital, now home of the famed Mediterranean Conference Center.


Embark with intimate, small group tours that take you farther afield to meet the people who keep age-old traditions alive, connecting you to people and places like never before. Delight in the many incredible shore excursions you can book and experience on this voyage, including:

• Tour a dairy farm in Campania and learn to make mozzarella by hand from a family that has carried out the tradition for generations.

• Shop local markets and savor a wine tasting in Sorrento.

• Wind through a landscape of pine forests and olive orchards on a journey to experience the traditional side of Corfu.

• Take in the scenery of Paleokastritsa Bay, known as the "Capri of Greece", and enjoy leisurely exploration of this wonderful paradise.

• Stop and visit a charming village tavern to soak up the rural charm and savor a snack of Greek "mezes" and a sip or two of local wine or ouzo.

• Cruise via motorboat to the Italian playground of Positano, arguably the most picturesque of all towns along the Italian Riviera with endless rows of rustic homes perched on the hillsides.

• Meander through narrow streets lined with charming boutiques filled with designs to rival anything in Milan and cafes that somehow feel both rustic and ever so chic at the same time.


When you're ready to embark, be sure to pack your bags, but leave the phrase, "Check please," at home! When you travel with Azamara Club Cruises, pretty much everything you could want is included. Complimentary amenities include:

• Select standard spirits, international beers and wines

• Bottled water, soft drinks, specialty coffees and teas
