Azamara Club Cruises published its 2020 itineraries, and a highlight will be the first meet-up of the line's three ships on Oct. 8 in Koper, Slovenia.

In Koper, Azamara will host an "Azamazing Evening" for guests on all three ships. Then the ships will sail together for Venice. Also, Azamara will offer a "Triple Tour" cruise of 42 days between Athens and Copenhagen that will involve travel on all three of the Azamara ships -- the Quest, Journey and Pursuit.

The upper-premium line will visit 41 maiden ports in 2020, including South Africa. Azamara has partnered with luxury safari outfitter Micato Safaris to offer land-sea packages. For example, guests can opt for a five-day pre- or post-cruise exploration from Kruger National Park to Cape Town, with stops at a game reserve and a visit to the Western Cape.

The 2020 itineraries will also feature an 18-night maiden voyage to French Polynesia and Hawaii, where guests will visit Maui, Oahu and Hilo. Land adventures include joining a marine biologist in Polynesia on a research project into wild, free-ranging dolphins, and a submarine voyage to a sunken wreck off Maui.

Azamara said that in 2020 it will offer a more inclusive stateroom category called Veranda Plus. This new stateroom category will have the same dimensions and features as a Veranda but will include complimentary internet minutes, one night of specialty dining and priority embarkation.

In total, Azamara will offer 92 individual cruises on its three ships, 40 country‚Äźintensive voyages, 303 late-night stays and 170 overnight stays.
