Aloha Everyone,Excitement of departure day combined with the feeling of anxiety getting our antigen tests prior to boarding. Due to holiday, there was only one immigration officer to stamp passports. All ended well. This is our first cruise on Azamara.
The ship has a maximum capacity of 704, but we are sailing with 460 passengers. The two of us have been upgraded from an ocean view unit to a balcony room.
The sea has been extremely calm. The ship is sailing south to Egypt. We definitely would want to see the Pyramids and Sphinx and possibly, the archaeological museum in Egypt.
Azamara Pursuit is an older ship refitted about 7 years ago. Linens and pillows are of luxury hotel quality. Food served in dining room and buffet style are also more interesting, prepared per individual request with higher care and excellent service. Of course, that could be attributed to the small number of passengers.
Aloha -- Cathi
