This was a relatively late booked cruise due to Azamara cancelling a full 3 week dry-docking and adding this cruise. We had an owners suite again at a very good price. It was also complicated by Azamara later further changing cruise by shortening by 2 days. We were able to change flights etc so no major problems for us and Azamara had guaranteed to pay peoples 2 day expenses in Malaga because of delays.
We had our 2 days in Malaga and boarded on 17 November in lashing rain and thunder.
In view of what happened later little did we recognise the omen.
