Azamara Pursuit has left the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland following an extensive multi-million pound refurbishment of the ship.
The ship which was formerly operated by P&O Cruises as Adonia joined the Azamara Club Cruises fleet in March 2018 at Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahama.
Following the transfer from P&O Cruises to Azamara Club Cruises the vessel arrived at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in April 2018. Since then the MJM Group have been refurbishing the ship. The total cost of the project is estimated to be around £50 million.
More than 800 people who involved in the refurbishment of the ship. Azamara Pursuit is also the first luxury cruise ship to ever be refurbished at the shipyard in Belfast.
Azamara Pursuit departed the shipyard on 24 July 2018 on a two-night cruise to the Isle of Man before returning to the shipyard in Belfast. The ship has now departed the shipyard for the final time and is on route to Southampton where it will arrive on 28 July 2018.
From Southampton the ship will set sail on a two-night preview cruise to Guernsey before arriving back into Southampton on 30 July 2018, where it will remain until 01 August 2018 when it will leave on its maiden voyage.
The official naming of Azamara Pursuit will take place in Southampton on 28 August 2018. It will be the first time that Azamara Club Cruises has officially named a new ship. The currently two ships in the fleet, Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey both immediately entered service in 2007.
