  1. We’re currently booked on the same cruise. I checked on a European website for cruises, and they indicate the earliest flight they recommend is 11:00, so I suppose technically it could be done. Far too much hassle and stress for me at the end of a vacation, so we’re planning to return to Athens for another night and fly home the next day. Cross posted with Uktog, but we have the same thoughts!
  2. Our next cruise is 10/2021, Greece and Turkey, which I’d booked last December. This April, cancelled a cruise that was scheduled to depart from Venice yesterday, and fortunately the OBC and FCC were transferred to our 2021 booking, with no $ lost. I’m 50/50 that next year’s trip will happen and would Lift & Shift to 2022, but there is no itinerary at all similar to the one we’ve booked with five days in Turkey. We had a previous cruise to Turkey schedule several years ago, but it was cancelled do to the political situation, so definitely hoping this one goes. Like
  3. One of our favorite ports was St. Peter Port in Guernsey, likely because it was such an unexpected pleasure! The port town itself is really lovely, and we took a private tour to the WW2 museum. After they were relatively peacefully occupied by the Germans, when the war ended a young teenager began collecting all kinds of things they left behind and opened this amazing museum (an Enigma machine!), and he still mans the entrance and loves to share stories. We’ve had so many ports that are off the beaten path, and it’s why we love Azamara. Hopefully, we’ll have more discoveries next
  4. I can’t believe I didn’t think of another VERY memorable evening in Liverpool at the Cathedral. It began with light opera/Broadway type male and female singers and ended with a Beatles cover band playing with the real Beatles shown on screens. Russ beckoned us up to dance, and I found myself dancing. In Liverpool. In the Cathedral. To the Beatles. Azamazing!
  5. We loved the evening in Valencia. Having the Arts & Science center all to ourselves was wonderful, as was the varied entertainment. Hoping we’ll be able to sail on our 10/2021 Greece and Turkey cruise and finally experience Ephesus and the Azamazing Evening. Thanks, LaurieB, for starting this thread.
  6. I have been trying to cancel our October trip for several weeks. Azamara advised my TA that we should first transfer the FCC we had applied toward this trip to our 2021 sailing before we cancelled which makes sense. The TA has been following up weekly, and was told the following this week: “I just called Azamara to check on the status of things. They advised they are super backed up, and it can take about 4 weeks for the FCCs to be transferred. They said they are hoping by 5/22 to have all of them completed.” AZ also offered to waive the cancellation fee if we transferred the 2020
  7. That’s good news, and I’m glad to hear Pursuit still has a happy ship. With all that’s going on, there’s no doubt the onboard crew and management will continue to provide the best experience possible. Safe travels home!
  8. Finally, but like Royal Caribbean, only for US departures? https://view.email.azamaraclubcruises.com/?qs=fc27bb508e7269841d46de90ce883ed2667f21c47276bc84545b98dbae8452c309f0ddf7a96f29efbe06ba90fcb851a2dcc2d4d326b024b0afced0e986424da6d132c4996041cd675e125b77f45b3a99754ee220a4f1c6d0
  9. I agree, Phil. We have a Quest cruise booked in October, and I was taking a wait and see attitude before cancelling, but I’m seriously questioning that now. They have over $1,000 in deposit for that trip (and the same for a 2021 cruise), and I’m about ready to cut my losses and cancel. I’m not sure how they’ll recover from this horrific PR nightmare they’ve created.
  10. I just noticed AZ has a new advisory - https://www.azamara.com/travel-advisory. Boarding will be denied to passengers who have traveled to or through mainland Europe in the past 15 days.
  11. I totally concur. Hopefully, everybody who has decided this is media hype will self-quarantine for 14 days when they return home. While they may have decided they are not personally at risk, they could be carriers who transmit the virus to others who ARE at risk. The media is not the enemy here.
  12. It’s a “false hope” that coronavirus will be seasonal and subside in the summer, like the flu, the World Health Organization said Friday. “We have to assume that the virus will continue to have the capacity to spread,” Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO’s health emergencies program, said at the agency’s headquarters in Geneva. “It’s a false hope to say, yes, that it will disappear like the flu.” Earlier in the outbreak, U.S. health officials said there was a hypothesis among mathematical modelers that the outbreak “

    She might also speak to her doctor, as he would likely recommend she not travel there. With a doctor’s note, travel insurance may kick in.
  14. Did you try logging in and going to your account settings to verify your address is correct? If that doesn’t work, perhaps clearing your cookies might?

    We just booked a 2021 Greece and Turkey cruise I’d been watching for a few weeks. With the current special, our TA got us a CC suite for just over $800 total per day. Not as good as we’d paid several years ago, but for us and for what is a great itinerary, we pulled the trigger. I’ll definitely keep an eye on the price going forward, but It’s in a range that I’m comfortable with, particularly as we don’t enjoy the MDR and eat at the specialties every day. I wouldn’t have heard about the special if I wasn’t following this thread, as I received nothing from AZ.
