  1. I don’t want them to tie up my money only to put their ridiculous restrictions back on people over 70. They won’t be doing the Baltics in August either. I wish they would just cancel and get it over with. My extended final payment is coming up. I’m trying to keep my free nights, as are others. But some people have already canceled. Loyalty club has not been customer friendly.
  2. I think not. I would say if there is any over complicating, it is on Azamara’s part. A friend, Deirdre has gone to Viking Oceans. She was a very loyal Azamara cruiser. In my opinion this is a game...we make final payment and the rules change once again. What happens to our money? It seems to me they are holding perks and free nights hostage. As much as I love Azamara, I may have to walk away, as will others. Why did Larry Pimental suddenly leave?
  3. Oh, good Lord. I hope this is resolved very soon. I have final payment coming up which has been moved up. My early August cruise will not be happening. That I’m almost sure of.
  4. Ditto. But we are still debating Azamara. Our loyalty to them doesn’t seem to matter. Who wants to tie up thousands on a cruise that probably will not happen and only to possibly have them put the restrictions back on? I know in my heart our August Baltic cruise will be canceled.
  5. Insurance rates have always been based on age. Nothing new there. I use Allianz. I had to cancel a cruise last year for a covered reason and it worked great.
  6. I am in a pickle, Bonnie and would appreciate some help. I’ve tried explaining as has my travel agent to no avail. The sailing is a Baltic cruise on the Quest departing Stockholm on August 6. Final payment is due on May 14, 2020. As I’ve explained the FCC will be useless under the current restrictions. I’m not the person canceling...Azamara is and it’s unfair to tie up my money if I’m not going to be able to cruise. I had the same “chronic” condition in November when we sailed and I had no problems. I am less of a risk now than I was when we sailed our Dalmation Coast cruises.
  7. No, I’ve been in contact with loyalty ambassador. If I don’t make final paymet on a cruise I cannot go on, the free nights are not preserved.
  8. Because of their new guidelines I will lose my free days which I think is really unfair. I am not canceling my cruise....Azamara is telling me I cannot cruise but still want me to make final payment even though the policy is in place. That makes absolutely no sense to me.
  9. Catching up a bit because I’ve not been reading forums. Azamara is still firm on their restrictions while many younger than 70 are dying? I’m fighting to keep my free nights...I didn’t change my plans....Azamara did. I would say that’s discrimination
  10. I tried to complete it, but after question 20 it would not let me go any further and I had commented about the over 70 restrictions because I wanted my voice heard. It frustrates me that my opinion will not be seen.
  11. I know from experience this is true. I experienced it last summer....everything, including flights pre cruise hotels, etc., were refunded. People have to be savvy when purchasing travel insurance. Knowledgeable people shouldn’t have to check with their companies to see if a cancelation is covered. That should be crystal clear before any traveler purchases insurance.
