Destination-Immersive Voyages Complemented with Compelling Food for Thought

April 8, 2014 – Azamara Club Cruises, the cruise line known for providing guests with destination-immersive experiences throughout the world, is enhancing its onboard experience through a new partnership with Compass Speakers and Entertainment Inc. The collaboration marries Azamara’s range of culture-rich voyages with a diverse enrichment program that will expand and enhance the guest vacation experience. The offerings, onboard both Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, will include enlightening and engaging array of lecturers, who will bring Azamara’s intriguing destinations to life through a range of topics, such as world affairs, art history, forensics, sports and more.

Azamara and Compass Speakers will inspire conversation around captivating issues that are presented by distinguished experts in their fields, such as Major General (Ret) and Visionary Donna Barbisch who tells of her more than 38-year military career and former-NFL Referee Robert McElwee who recounts his 27-year career officiating at American football games. Additionally Compass Speakers will include scholars like Latin America Historian Dr. Judith Ewell who shares her in-depth knowledge as a former professor of Latin American history; and Mediterranean Historian Dr. Stephen Wessley, a Lehman fellow who shares his insight into the region’s rich history. These lectures will create a stimulating onboard environment that will not only enhance individual voyages, but increase guests opportunities to immerse themselves in a topic or destination. Additionally, select Azamara voyages also will feature skilled watercolour artists, clergy, and bridge instructors certified by the American Contract Bridge League.
