  1. I agree. I did fill it in but is not about LCV. They ask for your status level and then net worth!!? Then it only is about the marketing of land programs pre or post cruise. Not a problem for them to ask for feedback on desires for the land programs but the headline was inappropriate. I was hopeful it was a survey for members on board here disappointed in the changes to the Azamara LCV program to give feedback to such. I thought maybe they were interested about the concerns lately. Sad.
  2. We are in Bradenton too at Esplanade. We just booked the April 9 cruise 2021 - 10 night Caribbean. The price on the Sky Suite was incredible! Would be good to see you on that cruise!
  3. Yes it is Cherry Tart Pinot Noir made by Cherry Pie in California.
  4. We are on the November 5th transatlantic which will be the first affected by the new Cuba rules. I would assume Azamara has been watching this topic avidly and had backup itineraries in place. Can you shed light on this please. Looks like lots of people on our cruise have already or are going to bail - the sooner a new itinerary can be posted to assure guests of it's worth it would be in the interest of Azamara to do so. Thanks, Richard
  5. We are on both the April 13th cruise and the 27th TP to Vancouver. Let's get together!
  6. We sailed 1140 on the Summit twice - New England and Caribbean - yes a bit loud on the balcony during the films but could hear nothing in the cabin. The depth of those balconies trump the others on deck 11 so go for it! And closer to the stairs down to the Sunset Bar!!
  7. Thanks Norris for your wonderful review of Azamara and your Cuba trip. It was so great that I also did then look at all your previous reviews - took hours out of my days (LOL) but totally appreciate the time and dedication you put into your documentation! We have sailed on Azamara three times previously - had no intention of doing Cuba after having lived in the Caribbean for 30 years but when I saw your review I researched some of their cruises including Cuba and we are now booking the westbound TA from Barcelona starting November 5th on Journey. We have been to Barcelona before but not the stops of Gibraltar or Bermuda! The port of Key West we will enjoy again and then off to Havana. Only an overnight there but as we are just an hour drive from the port of Tampa we can find a more immersive cruise from there in the future to do even more. I think Azamara owes you a special gift of sorts for inspiring so many of us to experience Cuba on Azamara! Hi to Carol, Richard
  8. We were on the Edge January 6th - brand new ship - our sofa was stained - our friends sofa was stained - major fail in both tone of fabric and cleanable aspects. Overall as a designer I liked the look but the function is horribly laking.
  9. You have misunderstood the post about the auto closing bathroom doors. I think I understand that he is talking about the bathrooms in the common areas. They are auto closing and cannot be pulled in manually. I am recently cured of colorectal cancer but have a 'sensitive' system. On the Edge in January for my 62nd birthday I often had to run to go to a bathroom - can you imagine not being able to close a door quickly to have privacy? I hope you never have that problem in your life.
  10. The TPG question to his loyalists was amazing - 50% responded that they were interested or willing to try the new concept. That's huge. We are sailing on January 6th and are now not so sure about the Edge after the reviews of the IV cabins - after 20 Celebrity cruises mostly in Aqua. I am a baby boomer and the husband is older than that to put in perspective!
  11. Hi James, Husband and I are on this cruise. Recent transplants to Florida after living in the Virgin Islands for 30 years. Will be nice to meet up with you guys and your friends. Drinks are always good! Have you planned any private shore excursions with your friends yet? Have been investigating options. Richard and John.
