  1. We have just received it and responded but find some options were limiting. We seem to be on a new emailing list as not often received communications previously.
  2. Confusion at Azamara as I emailed as suggested. My TA and I persisted because we believe the conditions allowed us to change the date. One excuse was it wasnot possible as a repositioning cruise which was excluded from the scheme. There were other similar reasons given for the refusal to lift and shift but then later yesterday a change in the position.
  3. After more than a week of discussion my TA has been told we can lift and shift to 2022. Hopefully it will become easier for people to move to the 2022 or 2023 cruises.
  4. When we found no line and put that on our survey that is carried out after a few days on board within an hour one was fitted. Great service and good to know they respond to concerns
  5. That"s a great trip. Especially if an over night in with ports . We stayed in a hotel in Jerusalem and it was the best eexperience walking round the city before the tourists arrived.
  6. TA after speaking to Azamara yesterday. We are in the UK.
  7. Has anyone been ànke to lift and shift their March 2021 cruise to March 2022. We are booked on Cape Town to Lisbon but would like to lift and shift but told it isnt possible and we would have to.pay current fare.
  8. We are currently in Windermere sat in our garden and watching the small amount of activity on the lake.The towns are packed as the weather is fantastic but it is possible to find peaceful havens outside Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick and by november mstvpeople will be home.
  9. I think you are right Phil. We would appreciate clarity re Cape Town to Lisbon in March but just been told today we can't lift and shift from that one. We are anxious to cruise but SAFELY.
  10. My husband is deaf and his hearing aids pick up every sound in the MDR and sonweest in Aqualina or Prime C every evening so that we can relax and chat. Before the hearing loss he didnt find the MDR a problem but now we look.for ways to accommodate the way hearimgvaids work and have the same problem on dry land.

    Summer/Fall 2022

    As people who booked on a cruise in March we would like to see March 2022 released as we can't believe we will sail.and would like to consider Lift and Shift.
  12. That was a fantastic trip and the following cruise took you back to Bermuda about a week later when their summer timetables had commenced and there were more activities, ferries etc. Docked inthe centre of Hamilyon is a real bonus on Azamara.
  13. South Africa booked and fingers crossed. East coast USA and sail into Quebec would be great perhaps in early Autumn.
  14. We have sailed on both Wuest and Journey and not found either cabins to be noisy. A little noise when breakfast being set up some mornings but not always. Quiet in the evening. We go for mod ship. Been on 14 or 15 cruises over 10 years. There is more noise under the sunset Bar
  15. We love all of those ports. A visit to Albania was a highlight of one cruise. So very different than elsewhere and less commercialised. A great trip by taxi to Tirana from Dulles. Also sailing in and out of New York.

  17. It was a long day tour from the ship and with an unnecessary stop at a road side stall on the away back it seemed even longer. Very interesting drive in daylight but not so much fun on the return. Salalah was interesting to us. Following Phil's comment on Albania we had an interesting day in Dulles and took a tax onto Tirana whilst on an Azamara cruise. Well worth a visit.
  18. The Chocolate Box in Bilbao? St Petersburg? Kusadasi? Rangoon? St Marteen? All great nights and more!!!
  19. Currently there are only 3 cruises advertised for March/April 2022 but they are expecting to advertise more soon.
  20. Azamara has told me we cannot lift and shift from March 2021 I have asked our TA to ask the same question.
  21. Sang Sweet Caroline just over a year ago on a ferry from the town to the port in St Marteen when there on Azamara. The ferry crew got everyone to join in.
  22. We are due to sail from Cape Town to Lisbon in March 2021 but are starting to think our only option will be to.lift and shift to 2022 if possible. We have already done that with a Black Sea cruise which would have sailed in Sept.
  23. We booked Cape Town to Lisbon on 19 March 2021 long ago. We don't think we will sail but hope to be able to lift and shift in the future. Having had 2 cruises cancelled already we fully appreciate the chance of sailing is nil.
  24. We got our deposit paid on board in a few days and our TA paid the full amount we had paid to them within a month. There were no taxes or fees retained. We are in the UK. The TA is a franchise and admin phoned as soon as they received the refund and told me when it would hit my account. A fantastic service. So sad that all TAs don't operate so openly and to support the customer.
