August 2017 on Azamara Quest – a working holiday

December 22nd , 2017 Tagged with:

August on Azamara means warm days in exotic ports, a salt water pool  to laze in, meeting wonderful people and enjoying the company of people from all parts of the globe.

It was a working holiday with   numerous  enrichment lectures  presented and  several  commentaries from the bridge  as we sailed in and out of Venice during  three cruises ( Aug 13-30).
