Azamara, an upmarket cruise line specializing in deep destination immersions, just announced its 2025 World Voyage, which will take travelers to 37 countries over 155 nights and allow them to indulge in over-the-top food-filled adventures along the way. 

The cruise came about thanks to the wild popularity of its 2024 World Voyage, which is currently sold out with a waitlist. But the company didn’t want any potential traveler to miss out. 

“We are thrilled to have our second world cruise aboard Azamara Onward. With 60% of ports on this sailing being different from those on our 2024 world voyage, this itinerary was carefully curated to give even the most well-traveled guests a new perspective on the world,” Carol Cabezas, president of Azamara, shared in a statement provided to Food & Wine. “Our 2025 world cruise invites travelers to not only see the world but also take their time in each destination and make memories that will last long after the journey has ended.”

The trip includes 13 complimentary land events, including a party in Benoa, Bali, where guests can explore the island’s culture with local performers and traditional foods.

Other food-focused destination excursion options include a drive through the historic town of Guilford on the award-winning Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail in Perth, Australia, a local seafood lunch in the Sok Kwu Wan Village of Hong Kong, a visit to an olive oil farm in Limassol, Cyprus, a cheese factory tour In Sorrento, Italy, and a visit to the Caviar de Neuvix farm estate in Bordeaux, France.
