Pursuit joins the family
THE bagpipes were in full swing during the naming ceremony for Azamara Pursuit last week, with the ship officially welcomed by Azamara Club Cruises through a festive event featuring liberal doses of traditional Scottish flair.
The vessel’s two godmothers; Ellen Asmodeo-Giglio and Lucy Huxley, were present to christen Pursuit before dancing the night away with guests during a glitzy evening soiree.
“Since the announcement of Azamara Pursuit in Sep 2017, we have eagerly awaited this special moment to celebrate the ship’s debut,” said the cruise line’s president and ceo Larry Pimentel.
“Pursuit’s two godmothers both have a fearless dedication to adventure, and ew could not be more pleased for them to lead us in this ceremony,” he added.
