  1. Our cruise which preceded yours was one of my favourite Azamara voyages. The levels of service were wonderful and our fellow guests were a lovely bunch of people. Found Journey to be such a happy ship and look forward to sailing on her again soon. Glad your Transatlantic was equally enjoyable Ann - anticipating your views about the next leg with great interest
  2. Finding Clockgate hilarious. We did not have a clock (authorised or unauthorised) in our stateroom on our Journey cruise which finished on November 5. Not quite sure how we survived 😄
  3. Enjoying your blog Ann particularly as we left Journey the day you embarked. A rare disagreement is that I was rather unimpressed with the singers and dancers on board this time. Everything else was exemplary though and the Italian Buffet was sensational. The crew were among the best I have sailed with on Azamara - such lovely, helpful people. Hope the seas calm down and you enjoy the rest of your cruise
  4. Have sailed with Laze several times and have found his attitude and skills beyond reproach. So glad he has helped to make things better for you. What a wonderful itinerary you have enjoyed - would love to do something similar in 2019. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. As a long time Azamara cruiser I am finding Pirouette’s observations very interesting. My last cruise, a back to back on Quest in June was excellent. The crew were wonderful, friendly and capable but this was before Pursuit was operational. I wonder if some of the service issues mentioned are because some of the wait staff are new and not yet familiar with the Azamara ethos. It is a shame that a newbie is expressing disappointment and I hope the experience improves in the coming days. Prices for 2019 are high imo and I am also researching other options but must also say that having started cruising with Azamara in 2008 have always enjoyed a lovely vacation Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Barbara, please consider taking comas’ advice and have a chat with the HD to discuss your disquiet. Believe the excellent Heike is the HD on your voyage - she is very approachable, very guest focused and incredibly competent. Hope you enjoy the rest of your cruise. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Azamara no longer has a computer room but there are a couple of computers in the Living Room on Quest and Journey. Not sure if this is the case on Pursuit Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. You'll soon see what being a member of the Azamara family really means. Enjoy your cruise and the Med.
  9. Just received an email from Azamara. Sandra Penaranda has been announced as the new LCV Ambassador with Patty Gonzalez directing strategy. Hopefully now that guests have contact names issues can be resolved speedily.
  10. I received the survey on shore ex but not the other one. Was pleased to have the opportunity to input as tours we experienced on our last two cruises were rather disappointing. Don’t normally book ship’s excursions and the ones we took from Ashdod, Israel and Marseille have rather put me off booking others in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Frequent Azamara cruisers will empathise with you regarding the pre-cruise experience. It is very poor. However I hope you will find like us that once you step on board all the frustrations melt away as the wonderful crew and officers do all they can to ensure you have a superb cruise. Am very envious that your itinerary includes Cassis. We visited it in June when Quest was docked in Marseille. It is a gorgeous and charming little town. Enjoy your cruise.

  12. There is also no mention of who the second CD on Quest will be. Ernest was working on the ship before Russ left.
  13. Now that's what I call good news😄 We have often fancied a drink when in Spirits doing trivia but normally can't be bothered to trek up to the Pool Bar. The old Spirits Bar was like the Marie Celeste during the day but I can see it being enjoyed much more now.
  14. I agree Viking’s afternoon tea is very civilised and is served in very congenial surroundings. The down side is that I was tempted to have it far too often Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. Azamara is wonderful in many ways but afternoon tea is a bit lacking. The scones are sometimes like bricks and as for the cream.......clotted it isn't
