Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

This cruise was to celebrate our Ruby Anniversary- A very special occasion.

Things did not get off to a good start in Sydney. We boarded early but were then told we couldn't go ashore in Sydney due to Custom restrictions. We had planned a full day in Sydney prior to departure but this was all lost and the restrictions were not made clear on boarding and should have been.

By the time we left Sydney, Cyclone Debbie was forming. At this stage it was only a tropical storm but Azamara should have released that a major cruise disruption was inevitable. The ship's progress was slowed to allow the weather conditions to pass which meant that 4 ports of call were lost. Spending three days at sea avoiding a Cyclone maybe a safe option but Azamara hardly acknowledge this with any additional entertainment except extra film channels in the cabin.
