Was this "Full Tilt" ? We took the Transatlantic on the Equinox and I thought they were excellent - it's a shame that they are an 'ad hoc' group that won't continue with the current lineup. They all seemed to love what they were doing and had so much time for the guests.

Salut Paul, Oui je joue aux echecs, mais pas particulierement bien. J'ai beaucoup joue en ado pour l'equipe de ma lycee, ensuite j'ai renonce a cause du fait je devenait obsessionel a propos du jeu. Apres environ cinquante ans, J'ai recemment recommence (a un niveau absolument plus bas) avec mon ordinateur, et serait heureux de tenter une partie avec vous, bien que je doute d'etre un grand defi.

Bill Leiber - thanks so much for your reply. It's great to see an Azamara rep on this board to answer questions. It helps all of us enjoy a better cruise experience.

Zut alors, c'est la troisieme foix que l'ordinateur a avale ma reponse! Tout comme vous, j'etais excessivement passione du jeu et quand j'ai remarque que je jouais des parties dans ma tete au lieu de dormir la nuit, j'ai tire le frein. Ces jours ci, je joue contre Nancy les soirs et contre un programme de l'ordinateur (Grand Master Challenge--un veritable fort en theme). En tout cas, entammons une partie a bord.

Make that read - November 2011

Yes, it was 'Full Tilt'.
They put on many shows at different times and locations on the ship. There are some areas on the S-class ships that are not suitable at all for performances with lots of people milling about who are absolutely clueless that a show is in progress.
The area that typically houses the ping-pong table outside Quasar is an example of one as well as the space by the main staircases near Guest Relations. The party band will be playing with people dancing and others trying to cut across the floor to get to the other side. Yikes! Brings to mind a version of Roller Derby without the rollerblades.

Salut les Azamariens francophones! Il serait sympa de parler français à bord! Est-ce que ça vous intéresse d'avoir un cocktail francophone pendant le voyage?

Hélas! Je n'ai jamais appris de jouer l'échecs.

Marion, I'm willing to tutor on a little basic French during the trip if you, or anyone else wants. I'm not a serious grammarian, more of a conversationalist and reader and I make no claims to be a trained teacher; just a lover of the language. I've studied it off and on since I was 11 years old and I'm WAY older than that now! :0) At any rate I think we could cover enough to make life easier while in France.

Cheers,
Ron

Hi Ron - I bet we could get a few Cruise Critic folks together to take you up on your kind offer - it would be fun! Let's talk about it when we get on the ship.

Ron,
Thanks for your offer! I may be interested as well. I got maybe 20% of your French, as I am remembering it from my one year of high school French, and I am WAY older than that too!

Default Rosetta Stone

A few years back on Celebrity, Rosetta Stone language courses were offered.

There was a taster/info session and then you were on your own to sign up and work thru the course of your choice at your own speed and times. As I recall it was on the pricey side.

Is Rosetta Stone available on Azamara ?

Thanks. (Merci)

Je me demande si nous devons attendre jusqu'à nous sommes à bord de programmer le cocktail francophone? Je suppose qu'il serait assez facile de faire une annonce dans le bulletin quotidien mais c'est la première fois que j'ai pris Azamara et effectivement, je ne sais pas. Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez?

Je pense que c'est une meillure idee d'attendre jusqu'a l'embarquement et puis, comme vous suggerez, d'essayer de faire une annonce. Si cela prouve difficile ou impossible a faire, on peut toujours circuler l'idee de bouche a oreille. Autrement, je ne connais personne qu'on puisse contacter d'avance. De toute facon, la perspective de prendre l'apero avec vous nous plait beaucoup.

Hey Marion, Sorry not to have written bi-lingually! I had suggested a French-speaking cocktail party in an earlier post, then suggested we might want to do a little announcement in the ship's paper after we leave. Not sure how easy that is on Azamara. Ludwigvb said it's a good idea to wait. What do you think?

I don't think Amazara lets people put together little events and promotes them in their daily program (I don't know the name of their daily activity sheet - it's my first time on Amazara).

I suggest you pick a day/time/location and let everyone know about it at the Meet & Greet. You are the perfect promoter to get this moving. I will come and smile a lot - not understanding a work of French.

Marion

That was word of French. As you have noticed - my typing is as good as my French. LOL

J'ai démenagé le fil au Roll Call du 18 avril Azamara Journey à Rouen afin d'attirer plus des gens qui s'interessent au cocktail francophone. À bientôt!

Hey Marion,

Figured it made more sense to move the thread over to the roll call.

Default Taxi Transfer ship to Paris City Center

Would like to hear from cruisers that are planning to take the train on April 29 from Rouen to Paris City Center. I need one more couple to share a taxi-van,total 6 people, leaving the ship at 7:30 AM, arriving your address in Paris about 2 hours later. This will eliminate the taxi from the ship to the Rouen train station, lugging your luggage to the train platform, carrying it on the train, taking your luggage of the train in Paris, lugging it to the street and looking for a taxi to take you to your address. The price will be about $60 per person plus tip. It should be about the same as doing it the hard way.If interested, e-mail me at safety@trusty-step.com.
