Azamara Launches New Virtual Reality App

Azamara Club Cruises, the luxury, boutique cruise line, best know for their AzAmazing events, overnight stays and destination-focused itineraries, has released a new mobile app giving users the ability to virtually experience life onboard their ships, and the ability to explore exotic destinations.

Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises, said:

“We didn’t want to launch an App just to have an App.  When perfecting our first App, providing this sensory journey was not negotiable. As we continue to redefine the luxury cruise experience for the next generation, we need to reach them in meaningful ways and provide information to them where they are looking for it.  Having an App is important, but more important is the content it provides.”

The Azamara3DI app, is currently only available to iPhone and iPad users, but Android users can still access the features by visiting azamara3di.com on their mobile device.

The app uses virtual reality technology, which enables the viewer to manipulate the camera angle, giving users a 360 degree view. Users can use their fingers to pan the camera in any direction they want, or for a more immersive experience, mobile users can tilt their phone in any direction to explore. The app also works with Google Cardboard, the inexpensive virtual reality headset.

‘Virtual guests’ can currently experience a tender ride to the ship, as well as embarkation, the pool deck, and the luxury Club World Owners Suite.

Users can also virtually explore the cultural Cartagena, Columbia; experience a transit of the Panama Canal, as well as a zip-line across a Costa Rican rainforest! More videos are currently in production and will be available on the app in the furture.
