Welcome to Azamara Journey

Posted by John Basarin on December 23, 2013

Who doesn’t like a surprise gift at this time of the year? Well this special edition newsletter comes with glad tidings indeed.


You’ve been upgraded!


Gallipoli-2015 is pleased to announce the charter of AZAMARA Journey as our Epic Cruise ship. This superb alternative vessel offers the exemplary quality, personal attention and boutique cruising experience our discerning passengers desire.

In the top 25 luxury cruise liners of its class globally, Azamara Journey is one of Cruise Critics’ all time highest rated vessels. Refitted in 2013 it offers deluxe appointment level and superior standard:


   •  Cabins, including opulent luxury suites with full butler service,
   •  Five star dining in two specialty restaurants, room service and a buffet,
   •  On board facilities, such as the full size fitness centre and day spa,
   •  Guest attendance with a high ratio of crew to passengers.

And there’s one more little gift!


Because the Epic Cruise will now embark in Athens at the historic port of Pireaus (and sail to Istanbul), an extra day tour to world-renowned Ephesus has been added to your itinerary. Plus one night in the vibrant Aegean port of Kusadasi. Otherwise the itinerary is unchanged.

For existing passengers

Your booking and travel arrangements are secure and there is no additional cost. All existing passengers will be contacted in person about cabin allocation aboard Azamara Journey before 31 January 2014.

Still thinking about it?


Don’t postpone your Anzac Centenary travel plans another minute. The Gallipoli 2015 ballot is creating lots of interest and the Epic Cruise is already over half sold. Delay much longer and you may be faced with the uncertainty of a waiting list.


We want the Gallipoli-2015 Epic Cruise to be the voyage of a lifetime. So watch for more itinerary highlights and special events as your departure draws near.

With Seasons Greetings,


your Gallipoli-2015 team.
