Azamara's planned maiden calls in 2023 include Alta, Norway; Brest, France; Cesme, Turkey; Fredericia, Denmark; and Mariehamn, Finland. The line will also offer two new pre- and post-cruise land explorations in 2023, a Switzerland Glacier Express Train and a two-night programme in Gran Canaria that includes visiting the Bandama Caldera, one of the largest extinct volcanic craters.

Seabourn

Seabourn, meanwhile, revealed details of the Seabourn Venture's inaugural itineraries from the UK, departing this spring.

On sale since 19 August, the itineraries depart in April on the first of the line's two new purpose-built expedition vessels. The 12-day Wild & Ancient British Isles cruise goes from Greenwich (London), England, to Leith (Edinburgh), Scotland. The 12-day Scottish and Norse Legends Expedition out of Leith, on 22 April, explores coastal Scotland and Norway en route to Tromso, Norway. From Tromso, the Venture will embark on its previously announced summer season in the Arctic, starting 4 May.
