  1. I understand a letter has gone to your TA. Let me me know if you didn’t get it.
  2. I'll see what I can find out for you this week.
  3. Hi uktog, your photos of Bermuda are beautiful. In all my travels I’ve yet to visit Bermuda...it’s on my list.
  4. We WANT you to get our emails! Please write to azadatabase@azamara.com and ask them to look into why you don’t get our mail.
  5. I have shared your post, Riocca. And thank you for your loyalty!
  6. I will be surprised if there is a macro-pattern. Every voyage will be unique. Inventory (supply) will sell at a different pace. And then there is group space to consider...big operators put dibs on suites/staterooms far in advance and then proceed to sell into their allocated space. As time ticks away travel sellers release space if demand isn’t as expected. As upper category space is released then inventory control may fill some of it with upgrades, and keep some for much closer-in bookings. Overlay all this with the number of booked guests willing to upgrade, and the bids they’ve submitted. The snapshot of supply, demand (both normal expected demand + upgrade demand), and days out from sailing would give you the “pattern” but really these three variables differ at any point of time. Other variables, if you were building an algorithm, would be the season, the destination of voyage and the length of voyage, because these affect how demand flows in, eg different historical booking patterns. Sorry to ramble on...maybe too much coffee this morning! I guess I’d say an upgrade is like playing the lottery, it’s a game of chance but you can’t win if you don’t play.
  7. Sounds like a perfect holiday in Italy! p.s. I’m told your post-cruise Stay Local has been corrected.
  8. I can let the proper department know. Can you tell me which voyage you are looking at? Hi Cayman09, our team has found this bad linkage and are correcting it asap. Thank you so much for calling our attention to this!!
  9. And now a sequel to Part 1 and Part 2 of our Guide to French Food and Wine! Here is Part 3... https://www.azamara.com/int/blog/ultimate-guide-french-food-and-wine-part-three
  10. The Indulgence package is combinable with your loyalty benefits. This means, internet minutes and laundry will be combinable. However, the amenities from your Veranda Plus stateroom cannot be combined with your loyalty benefits since it’s not a promotional package. Although Veranda Plus is not a suite, it is treated similar to the suites because of its added amenities; therefore, loyalty members who stay in this category will receive the amenities included with the stateroom, not their loyalty benefits for complimentary internet and laundry.
  11. I can let the proper department know. Can you tell me which voyage you are looking at?
  12. Now that you point this out I agree, it is confusing. I’ll be sure to send this feedback along.
  13. Clarification...I'm able and willing to clarify, but would like to get an official response. I'd hate to misquote and give you false expectations. I should have an answer by tomorrow.
  14. No worries...I didn’t catch that either!
