Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
The weather was poor but the holiday was fun. In terms of value for money it feels OK if you avoid paying full fares. This was a "Strictly Come Dancing" cruise. If this had been a critical factor in our choice of cruise we would have been disappointed. There was just one dance show available to us featuring two professional dancers. Excellent show, but the theme was over promoted and under delivered in our view. The dancers were only there for the last two days.

Good points: The ship appears to be well organised and well maintained. Service is generally good or very good. We found food in the Peninsular restaurant to be OK if lacking variety. The specialist restaurants did a better job but at a charge. Self service restaurants were frequently very busy - but it was usually possible to find a table if willing to share. We got on well with most people we met.

Downside: Compared with a previous cruise on Azura the ship left ports very early in the afternoons and then travelled slowly to the next destination. This must be cheaper, but compared poorly with a Royal Caribbean ship that stayed later in port, overtook us and arrived earlier at the next destination - then leaving after us again.

The entertainment was generally a good quality but the venues were not big enough for the numbers wanting to attend. Early arrival was necessary to secure a seat. Some people were arriving 45 minutes early - and our 20 minute early target was too late to get into some venues. The ticketing process to attend the "Strictly" show worked well.
