After suffering during the early days of the pandemic, it’s safe to say that the cruise industry is officially bouncing back. This resurgence has led to some ambitious voyages. Case in point: Azamara’s buzzy 2025 world cruise, which will take travelers to a total of 37 countries over 155 nights.

The luxury cruise will depart from San Diego after a kickoff gala, before ultimately ending the voyage in Southampton, England. The journey will include 46 late night or overnight stops and thirteen “exclusive cultural events,” giving passengers plenty of time to explore various destinations along the way. 

As part of this cruise, travelers will also receive $4,000 in onboard credit, $3,000 for on shore excursions, a weekly laundry service, roundtrip business class airfare, and a premium beverage package.

Azamara will no longer require passengers to be vaccinated if their cruise starts and ends in the U.S., beginning December 1. However, all other cruises require proof of vaccination
