AZAMARA DRESS CODE: Appropriate attire on board Azamara Club Cruises® is always resort-casual; there aren’t any scheduled formal nights. However, guests should always feel comfortable wearing formal attire if they so desire, but please note, no tuxedo hire is available on board.

No bare feet, vest tops, caps, swimwear, shorts or torn/distressed jeans are allowed in the main dining room or speciality restaurants.

When visiting museums, mosques, temples and churches it is appropriate (and in many cases mandatory) to dress conservatively. Women should wear trousers or skirts that cover the knees. Bare shoulders and sleeveless tops and shorts are often not permitted for men or women.

  • Examples of resort casual attire:
  • Women: Casual dresses, blouses, skirts, trousers, jackets
  • Men: Trousers, shirts, polo shirts, sweaters, jackets/windbreakers.

SMOKING: Azamara ships have a designated smoking area, located on the starboard forward section of the pool deck. The smoking area is clearly marked. For our guests’ comfort and health, all other areas of the ships are non-smoking, including public rooms, restaurants, pool decks, staterooms and suites, verandas and halls.
