Built in 2000 as one of the 8 ships in the R-class for Renaissance Cruises, Azamara Journey started life as R Six. Following the collapse of Renaissance Cruises in 2001, these eight almost brand-new ships were suddenly without an operational owner, and over the following months and years the fleet was scattered throughout the industry, as various lines took up the opportunity to add a modern mid-sized ship to their fleet.

Since her short spell as R Six for her original owners, she has sailed as Blue Star (2003-2005) and Blue Dream (2005-2007) before being transferred by parent company Royal Caribbean International in 2008 to their new premium brand Azamara Cruises (now Azamara Club Cruises), along with sister ship Azamara Quest (previously R Seven).
