Due to work deadlines during this time of quarantine, we were delayed in posting photos from Azamara’s inaugural Cape Town 1/21/20 cruise on board the Quest. However, they can finally be viewed at www.dickseebachphotography.smumug.com. Click on Galleries, scroll down to Africa/Egypt. Hope the photos bring some joy and recall fond memories of what makes Azamara so special.
We did the Azamara pre-cruise Safari through Micato. It was worth every penny – truly one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. Kudos to Carina, from Azamara, who joined us on this inaugural collaboration between Azamara and Micato, and to George Meyer, our safari director from Micato, assisted by Heather and Sid.
Over these last months of uncertainty and disruption, we think often of the staff and crew from Micato and Azamara and hope they are doing well and will be able to resume serving passengers in the near future. We also think of Larry Pimentel, under whose watch this collaboration was started.
We decided to take advantage of being in Africa and traveled to Egypt where we boarded a Nile river cruise with Uniworld. Again, their staff and our Egyptologist were outstanding.
We were the second to last Uniworld Egyptian cruise, flying home on 2/13. Little did we know when heading home, that this would be our last trip for a while; we count ourselves as fortunate to have been able to do it savoring the memories until the next time.
Maybe a peek at some of our other travels with Azamara will tide you over and satisfy your wanderlust until we can all start sailing again. Perhaps our paths will cross.
