  1. If Azamara changes this cruise radically, which seems quite possible at this time, I can't imagine there's any other itinerary that would interest us. We loved the idea of the Persian Gulf ports. I don't have experience with this type of situation. Would Azamara give us a full refund? We do have travel insurance but wonder if we will be covered if we just don't care to go on whatever itinerary Azamara offers. Obviously we have spent quite a bit of money on flights as well. They are nonrefundable. Will insurance cover if we need to cancel? I'm not overly anxious yet (and we're going on a 3 week river cruise later this month) but in a few weeks I'll be quite worried.
  2. Fujairah is where the trouble is, that's the actual oil port. Have you looked at a map? There is no way to do any part of the Persian Gulf if there are security issues.
  3. I was on one river cruise boat in Asia that had a reverse osmosis system onboard for purifying water, but most put on water at each stop. There is no potable water supply in the region, they use bottled water for everything.
  4. I am cruising on the Quest in November and have reserved a Club Continent Suite with the walk in shower. It is easy to make that request and they know specifically which cabins are which. I cannot get and out of a tub shower. My travel agent knew which suites had which.
  5. We had an amazing stay on the club floor of the Pan Pacific in Singapore. I can't say enough for the personnel and service and the hotel is just lovely with great views.
  6. just posting here again because I failed to click onnotify me of replies before
  7. I am looking at the Dubai/UAE cruise on Esprit in December. It seems that that is the only time it would be feasible to visit there, given the temps most of the year. Has no one here cruised on that itinerary on Esprit? The web site is so lacking in information that it makes it hard to envision the cruise.
