    Flavoured gins

    I prefer my Gin to be gin-flavoured😎😉
  2. Have a fabulous vacation. Reeeelaaaxxxx.
  3. Changing «the flag» at the bottom of the page to Union Jack reveals the UK Azamara site and totally different prices compared to the Silly Sale aka «double upgrade». This confirms the scam theory. I recognise this from previous Silly sales. It is insulting.😡
  4. I have not been able to find old pages of cruise itineraries with pricing. There is a wayback machine in operation, but not possible to use for this purpose. In comparing todays prices with «yesterday» one should be aware that most of them had the 30% off pricing. The original cruise price before the 30% Off offer is difficult to find if you don’t have screenshots of them.
  5. Same here. I checked our cruise yesterday and the same message came up. I didn’t connect it to computer glitch, but thought I had forgotten to register. Now it makes sense.
  6. It is so typical Azamara and done with a big smile. In this case also with a twist of irony involved for the culinary destination immersion. 😎
  7. WOW. I know that feeling. I left a backpack with passports and wallets on the shuttle bus in Hong Kong a few years ago. It was a few days before boarding the Journey. Our hotel, The Langham, moved the earth in their effort to locate the sack and it’s contents and they succeeded. Sometimes you get what you pay for....

  9. On sunset veranda for breakfast or lunch you can alwys ask if extra seats are available. We always accept company if we have a table for ourselves at the back of the ship. Making new aquaintances is part of cruising.
  10. In the Main Dining Room ( MDR) and you show up as a couple the Maitre’d would natuarally ask: «Table for two?» Then you could say: «We would like a shared table tonight» . In the speciality dining venues you get what you have booked and in Windows and the Patio it is free seating.
  11. Just came across this very good video of the different venues on board the Azamara ships. Very informative. I think I gained 2 pounds just watching it.
  12. Given the situation in the Hormuz strait with tension between Iran and western countries P&O Cruises has decided to give Dubai a miss for all sailings the next half year. Azamara also has a few sailings via Dubai and I am sure there are discussions within RCI management wether it is considered safe to continue operations to Dubai. Maybe this is something Bonnie would not be able to answer, but there must be some discussions in management about this. https://www.arabianbusiness.com/travel-hospitality/425554-cruise-giant-po-pulls-dubai-itinerary-amid-gulf-tensions
  13. Looks like withdrawal has started https://www.express.co.uk/travel/cruise/1163154/cruise-ship-venice-cruises-ban-italy-holidays-latest-news
  14. I foresee a full withdrawal from Venice in the future if they don't find a way around this. I would be happy to sail out of Ravenna or Trieste but the problem would be finding a functioning airport in the vicinity. I think Venice Marittima could be used in the future if they could build an alternative canal into the harbour. The era of ships sailing on Guidecca is definately over pretty soon.
  15. The Azamara Journey refit planned for october 2020 has already disrupted a couple of sailings after october 10th due to late decisions as of where and when. You cannot seriously mean that they should change that and go for an earlier refit and ruin more schedules. The Journey looked splendid last time we were on board just a few weeks ago and we have two cruises booked on her before the refit next year. Only pity is that we would have done a B2B on the october 10 th sailing if they had kept the original schedule. I wouldn’t worry about Journey’s state or fitness. She will be stellar all the way due to her fantastic crew.
