Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
Disappointment mainly
First time with P&O, recommended by Travel Agent for this short break. We imagined Azura was a flagship, although we did foresee her not being on par with,say, Celebrity.Still, surprised at how bad things were with this ship.

The cabin was small, okay but no style and noisy from the deck above(Lido). The cabin steward was lovely and helpful. The lay-out of the ship is confusing, particularly if going from bow to stern or even mid to stern, where quite a few amenities are placed. The decks are too crowded with sunbeds and the promenade deck is short sides, not around. No running track.

The self-service food halls were pretty abysmal, smelly, crowded and also confusing with two separate restaurants(why?)with weird opening times.The service and the food there was on par with the general impression.The restaurant dining was better but not great, only the "gala night" rose to something approaching acceptable. We dined at Sindhu once,full marks.

A bright part of our experience on Azura were the surprisingly affordable prices of drinks and wine.--Also a point: why sail to St Peter Port on a Sunday - 95% of the shops were closed. Now the awful fact is we have booked to sail with Azura next year, too expensive to cancel.Perhaps some clink of light will appear.
