  1. On Quest. Toilets were out of order for quite awhile yesterday. Captain just announced they were plugged by handiwipes and a HAND TOWEL! Sigh.....
  2. Been 3 times, all on Azamara. Docked at English Embankment (adjacent to the bridge Phil mentioned), a stone's throw from the Hermitage, all 3 times. Sometimes the big ships can't even dock remotely due to winds (Celebrity Silhouette missed the port call the last time we were there).
  3. Circled it on Quest and on Pursuit. At night. Never put on much of a show though. This one is over the top. Saw one hiker was killed, hope everyone else is OK.
  4. Whoops, error. 1000 USD total per night, not per person. Ditto $500 total per night, not per person.
  5. Booked onboard to lock in the LCV and early booking incentives. Fare was in the 1000 USD pp range, has since come down about 10%, it will drop more. I wouldn't be surprised to see $500 pp next February (sails in June 2020) but that may be a stretch. Then after final payment date in March the fare could go to fire sale prices by April. Northern Europe/Baltic/Norway. Competitive market. No guarantees of course.
  6. From what I have seen (USA market), the fares won't start to adjust until 12 months (+/-) before sailing. If you are in US market you don't have much risk booking early. We have 3 booked in Europe summer of 2020, way over priced and we knew that going in. But we can wait for the expected fire sale and will rebook (US customers can do so once at no penalty) at that time or walk away.
  7. Hate the dispensers. Just got off my final Celebrity cruise complete with dispensers. Reminds me of public restrooms. Another ratchet down in the Azamara product. Cost savings to RCCL is the real driver.
  8. That's too much for a V2 particularly for a high competition market like the Med. I would maybe pay that for a 6 star line standard veranda but not for Azamara. You can book to hold the room, particularly if you are picky with location, then rebook when the, probable, promotion comes along or cancel later if you want, anytime up to final payment date. I have sailed with Azamara frequently and enjoy the experience but not at that price.
  9. We have 5 cruises booked on Azamara from now to end of 2019. Will do them all. Have 6 booked in 2020. Won't do them all but not because of anything posted on the Azamara board.
  10. No kidding. And the couple that scored the 24 night east African cruise as compensation. Makes me wish I had booked a Cuban cruise just to avail myself of the fall out generosity. 👍
  11. Oh good! We are booked on the Symphony, Amsterdam to Barcelona 8/2020. Another thing to look forward to.
  12. It will be immediately preceding the November 2020 Lisbon - Capetown cruise.
