Celebrating the People of Azamara Club Cruises
The captains. The staff. The crew. The smiles. The attitude. The genuine friendliness.
Ask Azamara guests what they love most about their voyages, and you'll hear answers like these. So we thought we’d tell you more about the people who make an Azamara voyage so different from the rest. Because we think they're pretty special, too.
Be sure to check back to meet more members of our award-winning staff and crew.
Captain Magnus Davidson became Master of the Azamara Journey in late-2015. His love of the sea, travel, Destination Immersion® experiences, and good food, as well as his easy manner and quick sense of humor makes him the perfect new addition to the Azamara family. Welcome Aboard, Captain Magnus!
With a father who was the captain of an oil tanker, a career in the Italian Navy, serving as First Officer on a tanker, and over 20 years’ experience sailing cruise ships, a love of working at sea runs deep in Captain Gianmario Sanguineti. In fact, he “wouldn’t trade it for the world.”
You could say that Captain Antonio F. Toledo is a bit of a renaissance man. He speaks four languages, loves scuba diving and snowboarding, and is an environmental conservationist, as well as a big follower (literally) of Columbus. See what else is on the horizon for Captain Antonio.
A Portuguese native, Captain Jose worked on nearly every kind of sea-going vessel before landing his dream job at Azamara. Whether at sea or onshore, his motto is “Try to make the most of ordinary things; you can make the ordinary extraordinary every day of your life.” Be forewarned, his enthusiasm for life is highly contagious.
Beginning his career in the cruise industry in 1991, Tomasz brings a wealth of hospitality experience from both land and sea. He says the best advice he's ever received permeates his approach to guest service, and he can't wait to go on safari with his wife next year.
With a background in 5-star hotels and Jordanian palaces, German-born Elisabeth Vogel brings an exceptional commitment to outstanding service to Azamara PursuitSM as hotel director. Discover how she spends her time on shore, and the cuisine she can’t get enough of.
A passion for model railroading, a competitive ice skater, a degree in musical performance on the bassoon, and a successful career in writing, directing and performing in musical shows. Eric de Gray is not your typical Cruise Director. Which is why he’s such a great fit for Azamara Club Cruises.
A performer since the age of five, Alicia invests her heart and soul into her role as Cruise Director on Azamara Journey. From her favorite music and food, to port cities she's visited, learn more about our perennial performer that hails from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This self-professed Wisconsin Girl and Cheesehead has previously performed in New York City and started her own theatre company in her home town. She loves building relationships with guests and her fellow crew just as much as she loves immersing herself in Azamara’s unparalleled destinations.
