5* Luxury

 

Dress code on board your cruise ship:

We all want to look our best ( not all time) so when we choose a cruise holiday the dress code is really not that complicated, its a holiday but feels like your still staying in a hotel. I love to dress up in the evening especially but its not always necessary when your going for your evening meal its part of my holiday.

So here are some does & dont’s whilst on your cruise holiday

 

 

Day time:

Some people dress up all the time even if they are just sitting around the pool drinking a pina-colada, reading there book, or just watching the world go by. Whilst you are relaxing by the pool in your  swim suits remember its better than the birthday suit save this for when your in the cabin. But then again be careful as you can get caught out. Naked sunbathing is not the done thing on board  most cruise lines are american and there rules do not permit nude or topless sunbathing.

Smart casual is all ways a good choice daytime or night time dependent on the days activities. So remember we come in all shapes and sizes and no one is the same.

 

Evening wear:

Cruising is for relaxing so you may want to just laze around in the pyjamas,dressing gown, ( even again naked but in the privacy of your cabin.) I am sure your fellow traveler on the cruise would not be expecting to see you in your night wear when going to a formal night on board the cruise, but this  has been know to happen that’s going to turn a few heads. There could be a themed celebratory pajamas party option but double check, so  Always be careful when dressing for dinner as there is always that one time when things can go wrong and your in that embarrassing situation and we have all had one.

So the moral of the story is always be prepared for the unexpected.

Azamara are a 5* luxury cruise line with 2 ships in their fleet Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey. Launching early next year they will introduce the Azamara Pursuit to add to their family

The ships are only small carrying a maximum of 700 passengers, but this is what makes them so attractive to the discerning traveller. I have sailed on Azamara twice and describe them almost as a home from home. The service is 5* but the friendliness of both staff and passengers is so very welcoming and immediately relaxes you and you know you are going to have a fabulous cruise

Azamara lounge

 

Azamara care about the little touches, from welcoming you with a glass of champagne when you board to ensuring you don’t leave the ship without a bottle of water when you disembark in port. They are an all inclusive cruiseline so you have an array of drinks included and you don’t need to worry about tipping as gratuities are included in their prices too. Due to the size of their ships they can usually dock or tender in the heart of town, but on occasion when the port is a distance, they offer complimentary shuttle bus service to and from the city centre.

They also offer longer stays in port, some overnight, this enables them to offer the brilliant Azamazing evenings, a complimentary shore excursion taken place in an evening showcasing local music, culture and traditions. When I sailed last year we watched a 3 Tenors concerto in an old theatre in Livorno, and previously a sunset over the old walls of Kotor, Montenegro which was beautiful.

azamara shutterstock

On selected sailings for 2018 and 2019 you can take advantage of a azamazing promotion including 50% off the 2nd guest in the cabin and free wifi. Passengers who have sailed with Azamara previously are already beginning to book their cruise to take advantage of this offer, and for those who haven’t already sampled their delights take a look at our brand new Christmas brochure featuring a selection of offers ready to be booked

Our packages feature the Azamara Quest to the Mediterranean visiting Spain and Italy, the advantages of a small ship is that you can stop at ports that are unable to take larger ships such as Bonifacio in Corsica and Elba in Italy.

Dubai is a very popular Winter destination for its weather and culture. Sail with Azamara and you can stay 2 nights beforehand on Palm Island and unwind in the luxurious surroundings before boarding the Quest for a cruise around the Emirate states

western med 6Short duration cruises of less than seven nights, are the perfect long weekend breaks, and in the past Costa Cruises has been the leader for short duration cruises, with some itineraries ranging from three to five nights, embarking in either Barcelona or Genoa, and calling into ports such as Marseilles, Corsica and Majorca, to name a few. As these durations are becoming increasingly popular, cruise lines such as MSC, Royal Caribbean, Azamara and Oceania have a handful of four and five night duration sailings, the amount of time in port is less than longer duration sailings, however there may only be one day at sea, or none at all.

shutterstock_244573861

The more popular Western Mediterranean itineraries are generally durations between seven to twelve nights, and depart from ports such as Barcelona, Rome and Marseilles, and guests can expect to visit the well known ports whilst enjoying some leisurely days at sea in between. Itineraries such as these, can include porting in the Canary Islands, Tunisia and Morocco

A perfect way to cruise the Western Mediterranean region, without the hassle of flying and checking in at airports, is to sail out directly from a UK port, such as the well known Southampton, with Harwich and Dover also being popular embarkation ports. Although this is a great option, not only for ease, but for an unlimited luggage allowance, there is of course a downfall, and this is the famous Bay of Biscay, which can either be a smooth sailing experience, or can be an extremely rocky sailing experience!

A cost effective way to cruise, is by sailing on a repositioning cruise, these cruises generally sail from the Mediterranean, over to the Caribbean, or from the Caribbean over to the Mediterranean. These itineraries can usually be found in April, May, September, October and into early November. These itineraries usually embark in Barcelona or Rome, and call into various Western Mediterranean ports, the Canary Islands and Morocco, before heading to the Caribbean
