Azamara 3DI is designed to enable guests to experience a cruise in virtual reality. The system features the latest Oculus Rift technology, which has revolutionised video games.

From touring the onboard offerings of an Azamara ship, zip lining through a Costa Rican rainforest, taking a moonlit carriage ride in Cartagena, Colombia or sailing through the Panama Canal, the Azamara 3DI videos bring guests as close to ‘being there’ as possible.  Using Azamara’s own Oculus Rift DK2 headsets and headphones, this sensory journey will showcase the Azamara experience at trade shows and industry events from June in the UK. The 3DI experience can also be viewed online at http://www.azamara3di.com/.

Richard Twynam, managing director UK & Ireland, Azamara Club Cruises said, “We are thrilled to be able to use Oculus Rift technology to demonstrate the Azamara difference to loyal and prospective guests, and we hope that this travel experience will inspire future holidays with us.”
