Peter Greenberg Worldwide – The Azamara Pursuit – September 1, 2018

Azamara Club Cruises

This week Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Azamara Pursuit, sailing out of Southampton, England to Bergen, Norway. Joining Peter this week is Captain Carl Smith, who shares the colorful past history of the Pursuit and how it now sails to some of the most interesting, smaller ports in Europe–destinations not accessible to the mega ships. Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor-in-Chief of CruiseCritic.com, on the new trend not only in longer cruises but more overnight stays as well as Azamara’s trademark “white parties.” Then Glenn Silber, Emmy-winning & Academy Award-nominated Documentary Producer joins Peter. (In the interest of full disclosure, Silber also shared an Emmy award with Peter for best investigative reporting for an ABC News 20/20 piece on the crash of the last flight out of Vietnam carrying orphans.)  Glenn explains how the anti-Vietnam War movement changed the political culture of the United States and created the environment of mass protest, laying the groundwork for today’s Women’s March and anti-gun movements — and how his The War at Home is now being brought back to theaters across the U.S. And Azamara Pursuit’s Executive Chef Monica Ortiz on how she sources local food at each port and how that immerses her guests in the culture and cuisine. There’s all this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide comes from the Azamara Pursuit.
