UPDATED PHOTOS | CORRECTED — Correction: Azamara Club Cruises had, in fact, previously released a concept rendering of the anticipated new paint scheme for its fleet complete with a contrasting white band (seen below).
Per Azamara Club Cruises previous fleet refurbishment announcement, the Azamara Quest is currently in drydock. According to the cruise line’s Facebook page, she is more than 80% on her way to completing her latest upgrades which most noticeably include a new exterior paint scheme (seen in the header image above).
Until now, it was uncertain exactly how the finished paint job would match the earlier rendering, but now we know the newly applied hue is less akin to the cobalt blue of her corporate cousins at Celebrity Cruises and actually that of the concept image as well. It is instead very similar to the deep, dark blue that Holland America Line ships sport. Azamara Quest will display a white band halfway up her superstructure to nicely contrast the dramatic new aesthetic.
Since the Azamara Quest along with the Azamara Journey are former R-ships – vessels of the now defunct Renaissance Cruises – these additional enhancements to the fleet help to further distinguish Azamara Club Cruises from the other rebranded Renaissance ships sailing the high seas. Such improvements that are currently underway include the reupholstery of the furniture in the Cabaret Lounge as documented in the image above.
Azamara plans to release a brand new photograph of the remodeling process everyday over the next couple weeks as the ship is in drydock, so be sure to bookmark this page and return to it as we update the image gallery with all the latest photos from the shipyard. The exciting process is already ahead of schedule and anticipates the relaunch of Azamara Quest later this month.
