Azura cruise break 09-06-2012
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
The cabin was bigger than the one we had had on Princess and more comfortable. The cabin steward introduced himself and we were soon unpacked and looking forward to the week ahead. Unfortunately the weather wasn't with us for most of the week but we were determined to make the best of things. We were a little disappointed with the daytime activities, the entertainment crew were conspicuous by their absence most of the time. Crew members would pass you and blank you which is not something we have been used to when travelling with Princess. The crew were generally at best unhelpful and More sometimes downright rude.
We opted for anytime dining and only had to wait for a table on one evening and that was only for 15 minutes which we thought was very good. The food was ok but it didn't have the wow factor and the menus a little repetative. There was a free shuttle service in ports where necessary. The ports we visited were La Coruna, Bilbao, La Rochelle and Cherbourg. We enjoyed the evening entertainment and the sailaways. Disembarkation was well organised apart from the baggage hall where it was a bit of a bun fight to find your cases. All in all we did enjoy the holiday and the ports visited and the actual ship is lovely it's just such a pity little things that could so easily be put right let P&O down. Less
Did what it said on the tin.
Our first short cruise - enjoy...
A little lacklustre
