I agree with comments above. It will be walkable, but you'll be an obvious easy target for any pickpockets. Take care.

We stayed at the small, all-inclusive, adult-only Hotel SoCo in Hastings, and loved it.

That would be our favourites gone too. I am so pleased that we don't have another Azamara booking.

I suggest that some forward planning is needed. If sweeping changes, of any type, are to be made...

If there is a power outlet behind one of the nightstands, the onboard (or land based) staff don't know about it. My partner uses a CPAP machine and we let Azamara know in advance. The cabin steward...

We visited Dublin on a different cruise line and had a shuttle bus transfer into the city centre. The port is too far away to walk.

Hello, We had an Azamara transfer from the hotel in Dubai and were picked up at about 12 noon. Breakfast at the hotel was included in our package, and we were onboard for lunch. Hope that helps.

Alla Tours were great when we used them in 2014, I think. Did the 2 day Grand Tour and saw far more than we would have done via Cunard. Efficient, reliable, friendly, new mini bus. Excellent.

Thanks for the info. Our TA has pre-booked a port-airport transfer for the last day, and I'm wondering whether to cancel it and do the beach trip. Our checkin should open at 13.15, so is it worth...

Hello. Our return flight to the UK is on the day of disembarkation at Barbados, but we cannot check in until about 1.30pm, at the earliest. I believe we have to leave Royal Clipper at about 9am? ...

I'm sorry to hear that you have this problem, but your info is useful because we have the same dilemna following a cruise on another line next March. Our agent has booked us a taxi to the airport...

We have a (non-Azamara) booking for Oct 2019 because of the discount offered, complete with price guarantee, and cabin selection. For similar reasons we booked last October's Arabian cruise on...

Great news for Azamara, but a little sad to see P&O lose their only small ship.

Thank you Mimi A. We sailed on her from Venice in 2014, but didn't take much notice of where the power outlets were then because my partner didn't have the CPAP. I just knew there must have been one...

When we sailed from Venice, our flight from the UK arrived in the morning. The included transfer took us straight to the ship where we were able to store our luggage for the day. We were dubious as...

The discount does reduce as a cruise, or a grade of cabin, gets booked up. We got the phone call in the morning and the sales lady seemed to want a decision there and then. She started to describe...

We did the Croatia cruise from/to Venice in September 2014. There had been bad weather the previous week, but we started the cruise in lovely sunshine. There was some rock'n'roll, with the sea...

Thanks LandC ..... we'll await their call. Looking at the deckplan, I don't think any cabins have obstructed views, but it's something I'll have to remember to ask. I don't think we'll be on the...
