  1. I disconnect when I travel so wi-fi is a minor issue. I've never sent anything to the laundry. I just like doing my own. But going to the Azamara website and finding this change and not being able to log into my account or check my bookings is a poor way to handle this change. Why were no emails sent out before the change? This is like the change to the app for passengers to use rather than the old TV system. I was told the Azamara IT people knew there were problems with the program when passengers were forced to use it. Customer service is important.
  2. We have done lots of Azamara shore excursions. Part of our decision has been how much OBC we have. And, we have had a lot. There have been a few clinkers, particularly to places Azamara had not gone before, but over all we have been very pleased with them. I don't think Azamara's numbering system goes up to 60. On average we have been in groups of 20 on one bus. There may be other buses going to the same place but they try to stagger arrivals and departures.
  3. Having done it, Azamara was very willing to apply my deposits for two cruises I cancelled to a new third cruise. This was made easier because I was still going to cruise on Azamara and I asked nicely.
  4. We once got reserved seating at an Azamara White Night event. The Hotel Manager was setting up a reserved table by the pool for fellow trivia players. Mom was in her 90s and in a wheel chair. I jokingly asked if three of us could have a similar table on the other side as it was our traveling friend's birthday that day. The Hotel Manager not only set up the special table for us but also made sure we had a birthday cake delivered to the table. This was very special. The only time I have seen reserved seats for the nightly entertainment is for someone filming the performance. It's first come, first served and always enough seating.

    Disappointed

    Azamara today referred to the cancelation of cruises as an inconvenience. Like others we booked 2021 cruises on our last cruise carefully booking between obligations. Azamara took my deposit money less than one month ago. Now the transatlantic cruise is cancelled and I find out on Facebook, not from Azamara or my TA. My TA had not been notified by Azamara when I called her and she was told by Azamara that notifications would be sent out tomorrow. Azamara can do better than this.
  6. There are tables and chairs pool side at the Pool Bar and at The Patio that are not low and easy to get in and out of.
  7. Just returned from a cruise and noticed some changes from previous cruises. Daily fruit baskets in your room are not provided unless asked for. This is stated on a sheet of instructions given out at embarkation but, according to the customer service rep, 100% of the passengers did not read it, including me. Laundry coupons are no longer provided. Complimentary laundry is loaded to your account if you are an LCV member Explorer or higher. The ship's WiFi instructions to create an account do not work on all cell phones and will require a visit to the ship's IT expert. According to the IT expert, this is a problem with the program.
  8. I laugh. Yes, you can have a mixed drink or beer. The only time we ate at the Chef's Table, the overseer was horribly rude because I was not drinking the wine she was pairing with the various courses. I am allergic to white wine and do not drink a lot of red wine. She was not going to accept that. Finally, another diner told her to stop insisting I drink the wine. We haven't eaten at the Chef's Table again.
  9. I think what you are saying is that you have OBC that you have received from booking bonus and promotions. Certainly you can combine it with your onboard OBC. I like using the pre-cruise OBC to book excursions before sailing.
  10. Have done several trans-oceanics cruises and they are my husband's favorites. There are multiple trivia games--last cruise had 15 teams of 8 people each in the Progressive Trivia, lectures, demonstrations, classes--bridge, painting, and the like, music, exercise classes, tours of ship. There are plenty of things to do. There are no water slides, climbing walls or zip lines.
  11. I have never known of a Cabin Crawl on an Azamara Cruise. Cabins are not very large and halls are not meant for large groups. One of the funniest places to meet people is in the Self-Laundry room. About 6 people can fit in there but there are always more that join. While you are waiting for your washer or dryer to get done, you strike up conversations with others and have some good laughs. It is also the place to get info about what is going on that isn't published in the daily newsletter.
  12. There are robes and slippers in the staterooms.
  13. I know you can get all the water, juice coffee, and tea you can drink. Not sure about the sparkling water. I don't buy the upgraded package and have never been thirsty.
  14. I have tried for 5 years and numerous cruises to get on the mailing list. No luck. I just have to constantly check to see what specials and new cruises are available and any changes. Not a good system.
  15. When we sailed on the Pursuit there was not a clock or binoculars. The clocks that Azamara had on their ships were impossible for the average intelligence passenger to set. I think we could get binoculars on the ship. We were told passengers kept taking them. White Night out on the deck is awesome but noisy. Sorry you didn't get to experience it.
