Here are the current pricing from Azamara for my 11/29/07 cruise. I booked a 2A balcony cabin. The cruiseline airfare from Minneapolis was just over $600.
Cat 2A $2249.00
Cat 1A $2348.00
Cat SV $2549.00
Cat 4 $2059.00
Cat 5 $2029.00
Cat 6 $1999.00
There are approximately $240 in additional taxes per stateroom added but these prices beat Oceana by about $1,000 for a 12 day cruise. You also have to throw in a $110 pp, Brazil visa. It will be more if you use a visa service.
The pricing was a major reason we booked. Also, I feel that by November the major bugs will be worked out and things better be working well or they do have a problem. We are not reliant on Azamara's shore excursions so that won't be an issue but if one looks good, such as Iguacu Falls, we'll do it.
I REALLY want to see what they've done to the ship.
