Try an exceptional value that just became even more enticing. The upmarket brand’s special offer of 2-for-1 fares on all sailings through March 2011 continues, and now, on bookings for select sailings made by June 30, 2010, guests will receive an onboard spending credit of $500 per booking, as well as a $500 per-person ChoiceAir credit. The new offer applies to bookings for Azamara Club Cruises’ European voyages from April 25 through Nov 10, 2010 on Azamara Journey, and voyages from May 3 through Nov 20, 2010, on Azamara Quest. The offer is applicable to new, individual bookings in North America only, in all categories with the exception of Club Interior staterooms.
