  1. Such a pity the weather forecast isn't so great, but hope you manage to at least get off for a much needed stretch of the legs and fresh air. Phil
  2. What a good positive attitude you have! And someone who wasn't disappointed in the size of the bathroom. At last! And yes, there is plenty of storage in them. Small, but perfectly formed. Keep enjoying. Phil
  3. Glad you are off and running and hoping you all have a good crossing. Just for info to others, that centre “Captain’s” table on the upper level is the worst spot in the dining room for noise. In fact whenever possible I ask for a table on the lower level as the whole of the upper level is noisier. My recollection of Pursuit was that the space used for eggs cooked to order on Journey was used as a fresh fruit station with someone serving there. Is that what they have? Phil
  4. Pleased to hear of the resolution after passing it up the line. Two clocks? Now you are just being greedy. Not even the big suites get two😂 Phil
  5. A TA would make no difference to the use of free nights because the rules on their use is strict. Phil
  6. This is the wave site I use. Just click on the map area of interest and it gives a 180 hour forecast. http://stormsurf.com/mdls/menu_wam.html Phil
  7. Have fun. I just checked the wave models and think you need to prepare for it to be rocky for the first few days, even down in the Canaries. Could be interesting to start! Phil
  8. Yes, those free nights, especially if you are a single on a reduced supplement and on a longer cruise need careful calculation and I have found the same thing. 10 nights max seems to be about it. Phil
  9. I've embarked a number of times on Azamara in Barcelona and usually it's the WTC pier, but I have been at Adossat too so it's not unheard of. I think marinaro has given a good explanation of the reason and that it's nothing to do with cost cutting. Phil
  10. Well there are at least two live from Journey threads on this main Azamara board started in recent days. Phil
  11. I don't disagree. I just do it for my own assurance and suggested it here as a help to others. The Marine Traffic app is freely available and can be very useful. Phil
  12. I always check so I know which pier the ship is at to tell the taxi driver. Athens fur example is a big port. This kind of thing has never happened to me on any of my cruises. Phil
