Introducing Astoria

First launched in 2013 under the name Azores, Astoria was revamped and renamed in 2015. She has the capacity to hold 550 guests with 277 cabins spread out across the ship, complete with clean-cut décor and wooden panelling.

About Astoria

A wide range of bars and restaurants are available throughout the ship, ranging from fine dining to something a little more casual. The Olissipo Restaurant has buffet dining and comfortable seating, with delicious food served throughout the day. Meals can be served poolside from breakfast through to evening snacks, and stewards are on hand to serve guests at a moments notice.

There are eight decks in total, and multiple lifts operate onboard for easy access. The various decks have different entertainment and there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes – from guest speakers and quizzes to swing bands and film viewings.

There’s always an activity available, and many amenities and leisure facilities to fill the time in between. The upper decks allow for a beautiful evening stroll, or a morning walk around the entire boat makes for great exercise. There’s plenty of room throughout, so you won’t feel cramped during your stay.

Astoria is exclusively for adults and all facilities cater towards this market. There’s a nightclub open late for dancing and socialising, a cinema for the enjoyment of the cruisers, a casino for a taste of adrenaline, and an outdoor swimming pool for casual afternoon exercise. No matter how you prefer to spend your holiday, you’re sure to find the ideal pastime onboard Astoria.

This offers you a great chance to become involved and be a part of the fun. Their audiences love them, hopefully you will too.
