SANPATA – “Azamara Cruise Line Has a New Home”.

About Azamara Cruise Line: The ongoing pandemic has caused sea changes throughout the travel industry.  Royal Caribbean announced that it has entered a “definitive agreement” to sell its beloved Azamara brand to Sycamore Partners. If you’re not familiar with Sycamore, it’s a private equity firm. The deal, worth $210 million, is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021.

Azamara has a fleet of three ships and each carries fewer than 700 passengers. It may be one of the smaller lines in the industry, but over the years it’s built up a reputation for offering premium cruises that focus on multi-night port calls, special VIP events on shore, excellent dining and beverage choices, and exemplary service. These intimate, upscale ships are comfortable home bases to explore the world’s most exotic destinations.
