Azura's Blue Bar Are You Legal?
Passengers younger than 18 will not be served alcohol; however, 16- and 17-year-olds who are accompanied by adults may be bought beer, cider or wine to drink with meals in the restaurants.

Bringing Booze Onboard
Bringing liquor onboard at embarkation: According to the line, passengers are welcome to bring a small amount of alcohol with them onboard. There is no restriction to the amount. P&O does, however, reserve the right to remove alcohol at the gangway should the need arise. If, quoting the policy, it's "likely that the health, comfort, safety and enjoyment of passengers may otherwise be compromised."

Bringing wine or Champagne onboard: Allowed. Champagne or wine consumed in a restaurant is subject to a £10 corkage charge.

Purchasing liquor in port: Allowed.

Purchasing liquor in ships' duty-free shop: It will be retained until the last night of the cruise.
