Our Christian cruises are becoming even more inclusive for 2012 and 2013! During the past year we studied the numerous ships that were sailing in the Mediterranean and selected Azamara Club Cruises for our 2012 and 2013 Christian cruises and tours. The ships are intimate due to their size and they were a good match for us because we do not like to bother our guests with paying for things as they go. We have tried to make our cruises and tours about the fellowship without the distraction of worrying about paying for every small item. Azamara even has onboard laundry services! The Bible study cruises that are slated for May and October, 2012 and October 2013 include the following:
Gratuities on board the ship: the customary tips to wait-staff in the dining rooms and bars as well as those for housekeeping staff are already included.
Bottled water, sodas, and specialty coffees and teas are yours for the asking.
The ship’s complimentary selected red and white wines de jour are poured at lunch and dinner for those who enjoy wine with their meals. Passengers interested in upgrading to premium wines and champagnes (including in-cabin) have that option.
Shuttles: Where available, complimentary shuttles to and from port communities are provided at no extra charge.
Laundry: Rare is the ship that makes laundry facilities available for the passengers’ use, but you’ll have them on the Quest, free of charge. They even provide the detergent! Full laundry and dry-cleaning service is also available for a charge
Ship-wide atmosphere of relaxed elegance:
There are no “formal” nights.
“Resort casual” is the recommended attire in all of the dining rooms. As Azamara advises, “You won’t find jeans, shorts, or flipflops in our dining rooms – but you won’t see tuxes or formal gowns either.” In the dining rooms, Azamara suggests, for women, dresses, skirts, slacks, and blouses; for men, slacks, sport coats, and collared shirts.”
Azamara will provide you with a tote bag and complimentary use of an umbrella and binoculars.
You’ll find Egyptian cotton bathrobes and slippers in your stateroom.
You’ll be meeting at various times for exclusive Bible-centered teachings, praise and worship.
Our group dines together at a time to be determined, or the guests can enjoy dinner in their cabin or a romantic spot aboard ship.
In addition, all of our 2012 and 2013 itineraries all include Ephesus and Patmos this year due to the private charter arrangements in one of the ports of call. Contact Living Passages at info @ livingpassages.org or call us at 888 771 8717.
