  1. Yes, thanks, Riocca and Odd. I did the research that I should’ve done before asking and see that she was R-8. It’s somewhat reassuring to think that it’s an old listing. If RCCL was going to downsize Azamara, it would seem unlikely they’d choose the most recent addition that’s been updated. Journey is do for refit in the fall, but I imagine, like most everything else, that remains to be seen. Again, thank you. Melissa
  2. Yes, I should have realized that, but only looked at Date: 2001 per photo below. I also see that it says location: U.S. and Engines: 0, and wondering what that means. What confirms that it is Pursuit?
  3. It would be fun to see pictures, but I’ve never taken or seen other people taking any at M&Ms. There’s not a lot happening to photograph, it may not last long, and there are more Interesting backgrounds for onboard memories. I’m afraid when it happens at sail-away, we’re all anxious to get out on deck - that’s a hint, if anyone’s paying attention! Melissa
  4. As long as it matches my ‘sea mask’! “Cruise line operator Royal Caribbean is seeking a trademark for face masks that could be used for "virus isolation purposes," according to an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The name of the proposed item: "Seaface."
  5. How sad that stress may be a factor in these tragedies. It seems as though there hasn’t been much cooperation between government entities and cruise lines in getting seafarers home. I know that a couple of Journey crew members were moved to Ovation, then to another ship and have made it back home to the U.S. in the last couple of days. I understand there was no coronavirus on Journey, so they’ve made a difficult trade-off! Melissa
  6. I am too, and wish I had an answer. I know lots of planning has gone into the Azamazing Evening and I was really looking forward to it. I think it would be a great cruise. There are just too many unknowns for conjecture at this point. What countries will be allowing cruise tourists? Will there be flights? A vaccine isn’t likely by then; will there be good therapeutics accessible to everyone? Will there be a seasonal aspect to this thing? I’ve read that RCCL has a Sea-mask in the works, but don’t know who or what that’s planned for. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but real
  7. Journey crew has been transferred to Ovation and are assuming they’ll fall under the RCCL plan. M.
  8. I’m not going to name names, but he makes more sense than many of the politicians I hear on a daily basis. He’s more optimistic about testing and treating than I am currently, but I like his attitude. I see something of what’s behind the trademark application for the RCCL Seamask I read about yesterday too. Melissa
  9. I’ve never sailed with him, but he seems lovely! Darned allergies. Have to go get some tissues. Melissa
  10. Azamara’s Pimentel sells $1.9m in RCL stock From Feb 7, Seatrade Cruise News Perhaps, at 69, he’s concerned he won’t be able to get a Fit to Travel letter!
  11. Somewhere, there’s an actuary with a sharp pencil, ready to tell Azamara that their target customer I.e. those who are interested in cruising with them in 6 or 12 months, has a certain income or net worth and people in that income bracket typically spend a particular percentage on travel. That gives them some idea what they can charge and if they can afford to cater to that customer. At least that’s my totally naive conjecture. I know they aren’t attaching my answers to my email address, so not targeting me personally, so why should I care? Melissa
  12. I have no qualms about giving my household income or worth. Azamara and Survey Monkey aren’t the IRS, so no one will be checking my honesty and no one reading the survey has any interest in me personally. The results are aggregated and useful to any business in future planning. We should all claim to have the lowest income/worth listed (which may be true, currently!) in the hope that cruise prices will be adjusted accordingly!
  13. “Hi Melissaghoti, Before I report this to our IT department, may I ask if you double checked the country flag at the bottom of the page?” I hadn’t, but did and found I was looking at Ireland today. Clicked the proper flag and I’m good. Thanks, Bonnie.
  14. A slightly different website issue is frustrating me. I can log in with no problem, but logged in or not, haven’t been able to access the U.S. site for several days. I usually find myself at the European site, but occasionally, the U.K. site. I’m assuming that from the currency cruises are priced in and slightly different options offered. It’s not a problem currently; I’m just looking at options a year or so out, but still seems strange. Melissa
