Bill Leiber Posted October 31, 2013 #1 Share Posted October 31, 2013 Hello Azamara Followers in the UK - I've noticed on two threads related to the Discontinuance of the 25% Land Discovery Savings discussions diverting to the topic about the lack of knowledge in the UK about the our Onboard Booking Program -"Passages." A few months ago, I wrote an article about the program on our Destination Blog and decided that it would be worth reiterating the message again, especially for our valued guests in the UK: Azamara's Onboard Booking Program - "PASSAGES" Book Your Next Azamara Voyage onboard to receive up to $600 Per Stateroom Savings! At Azamara we offer savings programs that provide you with the opportunity to receive more vacation for less money. We understand that it makes sense to be a smart and savvy shopper and keeping you informed about our savings programs is an important responsibility. From time-to-time, I'll be sharing details of these types of programs under the heading of "Azamatter of Fact - SAVVY SHOPPER'S USER GUIDES." The first in this series, is a summary of our Onboard Booking Program, called Azamara's Passages program. It features tariff savings, reduced deposit benefits and flexibility for you to decide on the best time and itinerary that fits your schedule. It's offered on every published voyage* on both vessels and our Onboard Cruise Sales Manager is the one to see for more information and purchasing an Open Passage account. Azamara Passages Program "At-A-Glance": To provide you with incredible flexibility and exclusive benefits, there are TWO "Azamara Passages" categories: #1 / Azamara "Open Passage" Savings - Ship, sail date or stateroom category is NOT required at time of initial 50% reduced deposit which is non-refundable but does not expire. § No additional deposits due until final payment. § The savings will be applied when booking details are finalized. § Includes two Azamara Passages Certificates for friends or family to sail on the same ship and voyage when booked within 30 days of selection of actual ship and sail date. § Up to three (3) Azamara Open Passage accounts may be purchased onboard during that specific voyage. #2 / Azamara "Reserved Passage" Savings - Ship, sail date or stateroom category required at time of initial deposit. § No additional deposits due until final payment. § The savings is applied within three (3) business days. § Includes two Azamara Passages Certificates for friends or family to sail on the same ship and voyage when booked within 30 days. § Up to three (3) Azamara Reserved Passage may be purchased onboard during that specific voyage. Savings per stateroom depend on category and voyage length: § Voyages of 8 nights or less, you will receive a per stateroom savings based on category: $200 (Club Interior and Club Oceanview); $300 (Club Veranda); or $400 (Club Suite). § Voyages of 9 or more nights, you will receive a per stateroom savings based on category: $300 (Club Interior and Club Oceanview); $400 (Club Veranda); or $600 (Club Suite). Deposit Amount at time of onboard booking depends on Category: § The Onboard Booking Deposit is 50% of the standard deposit for Club Interior, Club Oceanview, and Club Veranda: US$ 550 per person - reduced to US$ 275 per person for onboard bookings. § The Onboard Booking Deposit for Club Continent Suite is 50% of the standard deposit of US$ 1,100 per person - reduced to US$ 550 per person for onboard bookings. § The Onboard Booking Deposit is NOT reduced for Club Ocean and Club World Owner's Suites - Deposit is US$ 1,100 per person. Simply, the Onboard Savings amount reduces the voyage fare and the Onboard Booking Deposit goes to the tariff payment. (*) Other Program Details: § Passage savings is combinable with 2-for-1 pricing; with one (1) Onboard Credit (OBC) and no more than two (2) dollar-off savings (onboard booking and back-to-back offers. (Other restrictions may apply and the program is subject to change without prior notice.) § Program not available on cruises chartered by third parties or certain customized group programs. § The program is not redeemable for cash. § Both Reserved and Open Passages bookings will be communicated to the originating travel agent partner for servicing. § Program details herein apply to residents of US and Canada; however, the program is also available for residents of other countries. See the onboard Cruise Sales Manager for savings amounts and details. § If you were to have purchased an Azamara "Open" or "Reserved" Passage while you were on board Azamara, you would not be able to transfer your Azamara booking to Celebrity or Royal Caribbean. § While you're onboard Azamara, Celebrity or Royal Caribbean, you'll be able to book any one of the three brands; however, you'll need to contact the onboard sales consultant to do so since only the brand of the ship on which you're traveling is promoted. Think of Azamara's PASSAGES Onboard Booking Program as a smart way to become a repeat Azamara Club Cruiser! The savings enhance the value proposition of Azamara's "more-inclusive" tariffs and the program's flexibility offers you the ability to select from a panoply of itinerary choices that deliver Azamara's specialty - Destination Immersion. That means more lasting enrichment from longer stays, more overnights, night touring and exclusive AzAmazing evenings on most voyages.
