  1. We were lucky to travel on a B2B cruise to Alaska. It was the first one of this destination and there were a few hiccups. Captain Magnus handled everything very professionally and kept a smile on his face. I remember the second half of the cruise we had a very small cruise critic gathering. Captain Magnus came and kept us amused. It was because of him and Ernest the cruise director we were hooked unfortunately COVID stepped in to ruin our chance of another cruise with Azamara in the near future. I don’t stop looking and will find the next perfect cruise to sail with them again soon.
  2. That’s a definite. Notification from Azamara by email today.
  3. We are going to cancel but had plans to before this happened. We are due to do the Black Sea cruise in June and we are sure we can’t travel from here. We cancelled our flights only yesterday before this announcement. So sad as booked onboard at a great price for a suite.
  4. Hopefully we will get our bathroom renovated. We are fitting out a walk in robe. Also helping my husband’s son with a deposit on a house. We have had 6 cruises cancelled so far.
  5. We are currently booked to do the Black Sea in June. I can’t see us doing that one. We have booked the Transpacific on the Ovation for September but realistically I can’t see that one going while there are bans in place in the US for cruises over 7 days. Our best bet is our Nov 2021 cruise on the Eclipse doing the GBR.🤞
  6. I haven't looked at the shops here in WA for Crays but we did get to enjoy two large freshly cooked crays that my boss had pulled out of his pots the day before. They were the best I had tasted for years.
  7. We are Elite Plus. That is probably why we got one.
  8. We have really missed our cruising this year. We managed a short one in January. I cried when we lost our April Solstice cruise. Cancelled 2 for next year but one bottle of wine makes us feel like we are a family. We will drink it when our daughter finally arrives back in Perth. I can’t wait until we are back onboard and hearing the wake waves.
  9. We would like to know about Australian cancellations. All cruises were already cancelled until Dec 31st. Our state of WA is currently closed to people from NSW and Vic. There is no way they will be able to cruise into Fremantle. We have a Sydney Fremantle cruise booked in Feb.
  10. We have been told by the West Australian premier that WA probably won’t be open until after our state election in March. Therefore Royal should at least cancel the Top and Bottom cruises as they can’t stop in Perth. We were looking forward to this cruise as we have never had the chance to disembark in our home port before. Our final payment is due early December so hopefully we know how things stand by then.
  11. If Celebrity and Azamara have done this I’m sure Royal Caribbean will be next. We always knew our Feb Serenade Sydney to Perth was in doubt. WA plans to stay closed until after the election in March. I hope they have some sense and realise that this decision is hurting loads of people.
  12. We only have a small deposit on the snow bird cruise. We will leave it there until closer to full payment. We have also put a deposit on a transpacific.
  13. In the West we can go to Christmas island or the Cocos Keeling Islands. We don't have to quarantine. The flights are a little expensive for the short time you would want to be there. Virgin are the only ones flying there. We are just sticking to road trips but at least we have a very large state to travel around.
  14. We are currently booked on the snowbird cruise. We haven’t cancelled yet but it’s getting closer to happening.
