Small-ship cruise line Azamara has announced its return to sailing in New England after a nearly ten-year hiatus from the region. The cruise line, known for its Destination Immersion program and Extended Destination Days, will sail six unique voyages in 2025, visiting new and unique ports across Canada, New England, Iceland, and Greenland.

Azamara’s return to New England will coincide with the region’s vibrant fall foliage season. The cruise line is also making a comeback to Canada, inviting cruisers to explore the picturesque villages of Prince Edward Island, the lush landscapes along the St. Lawrence River, and the outdoor activities in Nova Scotia.

The new 2025 fall itineraries on the 710-passenger Azamara Quest will also explore new destinations for the brand across Canada, Iceland, and Greenland.
