  1. Agree- our final payment is due in April for an August departure. One can still get cancel for any reason trip insurance although the premium has doubled from a few months ago. Even then it only covers 75% of your losses. Changing the final payment to 60 (or even 90) days out would relieve a lot of the decision making stress.
  2. Yes we understand that but wondered if there might be a “usual “ docking place. The prior trips we took we used their transfer to the ship but this time we are trying to do that part on our own. Thanks!
  3. We are thinking of booking the Burgundy and Provence for wine lovers cruise in October. Does anyone know where the ship would most likely dock in St. Jean de Losne? We are planning on taking the train from Paris and were researching how best to get from the train station to the ship. It appears that the town is not that large so hopefully there is a taxi service. Any insight would be appreciated. We have sailed with Avalon previously and enjoyed every cruise. Thanks!
  4. We also used Smith’s and they were fantastic. Highly recommend them!
  5. We are on the same cruise and have been checking out the Tattoo’s website. We will be purchasing one of the dinner inclusive packages when they go on sale 12/2.
  6. We were on the Pursuit in late April and absolutely loved it! The Azamazing evening in Trieste was superb! Captain Antonio is just awesome! We are counting the days until our next trip (bit to go) in August of next year. This is on the Quest for the Scotland intensive. Really looking forward to this trip. Enjoy your travels everyone!
  7. Thank you for this information! We will be in Vienna in December and this looks like an experience not to be missed. We also stop in Passau and promise not to be the “ugly tourist “. A few of the restaurants mentioned look wonderful!
  8. I had been watching a March 2020 Auckland- Sydney voyage. For a category 5 OV the single occupancy price increased over $2,500 under the new “promotion.” Just crazy.
  9. HGC - your photos are stunning! I’d love to get back to Norway someday. One of my favorite trips of all time! Thanks for the great “live from” thread.
  10. We have suggested exactly that in both onboard communications and in voyage reviews here on CC (most recently on the Pursuit). The water bottle issue could easily be fixed by installing a few refill stations that are everywhere now. Azamara cannot claim to be environmentally friendly whilst still introducing thousands of single use plastic bottles each week.
  11. Thanks for the super quick and informative responses- Lottie, thanks for the link to the other thread!
  12. Greetings- I have been considering a 2020 voyage on the Journey which is being marketed as a Perry Golf cruise. As I am not a golfer, I am curious how much of an impact a themed cruise has on the public areas of the ship. For example are there cocktail parties, meetings, etc., that block off areas of say the Living Room? Since the Journey does not yet have the wonderful Den, I would be hesitant to book a cruise with limited access to certain other spaces. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. The voyage I priced yesterday (5/31) is now about $300 less expensive (nowhere near 30%) but gone is the $500 OBC and free WiFi offered under the last promotion. The pricing debacle continues.
  14. Hi we are recently off the Pursuit and absolutely loved The Den! Our next trip is on the Quest and look forward to spending time in The Den. Is there any update to the dry dock for the Journey? Are they still planning on removing the casino? Thanks
  15. We are just back from our Rome to Venice voyage on Azamara. We used RomeCabs for our transfer from FCO to our lodging in Civitavecchia. After a long overnight trek involving 3 airplanes, our driver, Savino, was a welcome sight. He met us exactly where the emails said he would be, and within a few minutes we were on our way. He drove very safely and before we knew it, we were pulling up to our destination. Highly recommend RomeCabs when visiting this beautiful country.
