Azamara Club Cruises, the luxury cruise line, known for their AzAmazing events, overnight stays and destination-focused itineraries, has released a new mobile app which extends the Azamara 3DI Virtual Reality experience giving users the ability to experience inside the line’s two ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, life onboard these luxury cruise 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 www.azamara3di.com online here. .
The virtual reality experiences are powered by the latest Oculus Rift technology which is most commonly used for adding virtual reality aspects to video games. The luxury cruise line is one of the first companies in the cruise industry to bring their ships and destinations to life in 3D, allowing guests to experience a cruise in virtual reality.
Users can manipulate the camera angle, giving a 360 degree view and also 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.
Using the app allows guests to experience a tender ride to the ship, as well as embarkation, the fabulous pool deck, and the luxurious Club World Owners Suite.
Users can also choose to make a virtual shore excursion to the cultural Cartagena, Columbia; experience a transit of the Panama Canal, or take a zip-line across a Costa Rican rainforest!
More videos are currently in production and will be available via the app in the future.
A great way to explore Azamara Club Cruises.
