Cruise ship Azamara Pursuit will be named in Port of Southampton in AugustHeat Profit
AZAMARA Pursuit will be christened in Southampton in a first for Azamara Club Cruises.
The lines other two ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, missed out on an official naming ceremony as they went straight into service after their original refurbishments.
Following the naming of Azamara Pursuit on August 28, there will be a two-night celebratory cruise.
Azamara chief operating office Carol Cabezas said “This ship has a very strong British heritage and it has a fantastic following here. Plus we have seen a tremendous amount of demand from the UK audience.
“We’ve never had a christening in our brand’s history and we want to do that in Southampton.”
Azamara Pursuit was formerly sailing for P&O Cruises as Adonia, and was acquired by Azamara in September.
She will be a sister ship to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, and will feature similar decor as both ships.
