    Tips for Azamara Newbies

    Several financial institutions offer reimbursement of all (domestic and foreign) ATM fees. I always use an local bank ATM upon arrival at a foreign airport. The exchange rate is usually the best, and I have all fees automatically added back into my account.

    St. Petersburg question

    Not on an Azamara cruise, but a few years ago (on sister company Celebrity) we used Red October for our group of 10. All of us were very pleased with our tour itinerary (very flexible) and our tour leader. The US office is based in New York.
  4. It's only our second Azamara voyage coming up, so we wouldn't be involved in a loyalty event . . . but I do believe that those who have many (I don't know what the cutoff number would be) cruises with Azamara should be entitled to a loyalty event, whether it be a luncheon, dinner, special excursion, or another special event.

    Tips for Azamara Newbies

    A possible advantage of purchasing the Indulgence package (or any of the Experience More packages) prior to boarding may be to use the included Shore Excursion OBC to book Azamara excursions that could sell out early.

    Indulgence package

    Bonnie . . . I don't know if this has been asked previously. If you purchase the Experience More Indulgence package which includes two bags of laundry, do you still get the LVC two bags of laundry benefit? Thanks, Jerry

    So Called Double Upgrade is Back

    AllisonJames . . . Same here for our cruise next year. The lowest interior price is now more than what we paid for our V2 when the cruise was announced and we booked!
  8. Alsun . . . Thank you so much for your enlightening commentary and your fantastic pictures. We are on Journey's Norway and Midnight Sun cruise next July. Even though we are on a sister ship and there are differences in our itineraries, recapping your daily experiences was like living next year's cruise today. Have a safe journey home. Jerry

    Azamara Pursuit

  10. hubofhockey . . . Thanks! I found that reply from Bonnie to you, and I have bookmarked it. Just in case, I'll take a hard copy of it with me. Jerry
  11. Bonnie . . . somewhat off-topic, but related to OBC. We have OBC for early booking. Can that be applied to the Experience More Indulgence package? We booked a veranda when it was first announced for our Norway cruise next year, so the increases in price more than offset the cost of the package. Thanks, Jerry
