guest review

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados

VACATION WAS 14 DAYS VISITING 9 ISLANDS

MY WIFE AND I FLEW FROM GATWICK, ONLY 4 OUT OF 7 CHECK-IN DESKS OPEN AT 06.30 SO 55 MINS TO CHECK IN, A POOR START.

PLANE WAS A THOMSON BOEING DREAMLINER, ON TIME WITH EXCELLENT ECONOMY SEATS AND FOOD, BETTER THAN VIRGIN

EMBARKATION :FROM TOUCH DOWN TO CABIN IN LESS THAN 1 HR WITH BAGS WAITING OUTSIDE CABIN

AZURA: A BIG SHIP WITH OVER 3000 PASSENGERS, BUT DIDN'T FEEL CROWDED ONBOARD

CABIN:INSIDE CABIN ON DECK 10 AND IDEAL WITH 2 SINGLE BEDS AND SHOWER WITH PLENTY OF ROOM.

DINING: WE EAT IN MAIN DINING ROOMS FOR BREAKFAST/LUNCH AND FOUND SHARING A TABLE WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE EACH DAY ENJOYABLE. EVENING MEAL WAS IN THE ORIENTAL RESTAURANT ON 2ND SITTING WITH ANOTHER COUPLE WHO THANKFULLY WE GOT ON WELL WITH. FOOD IN ALL RESTAURANTS WAS AMPLE SIZE PORTIONS AND WELL COOKED AND NIC

VARITY OVER THE 14 DAYS.

DRINKS WERE UK PRICES.

EXCURSIONS: BOOKED 4 THRO P&O TO More GRENADA, ST LUCIA, DOMINICA AND ST KITTS THEY WERE APPROX PNDS 40 EACH BUT WE DID ENJOY THEM. WE DID OUR OWN TRIPS ON THE OTHER 5 ISLANDS AS BOAT DOCKED CLOSE TO TOWN CENTER AND THERE WERE PLENTY OF TAXI'S, BEST TRIPS WERE THR RAINFOREST WALKS IN ST LUCIA/ST KITTS. BONAIRE/TORTOLA WERE NOT AS COMMERICAL AS THE OTHER 7 ISLANDS SO WE OUR OWN TRIPS AND IT WAS NICE TO RELAX ON THEIR BEACHES.

ACTIVITIES: PLENTY OF THEM BUT ONLY ON 4 SAILING DAYS DID WE USE THEM. WE ENJOYED 4 PRESENTATIONS BY A EX CID INSPECTOR AND A COUPLE OF FOOD DEMONSTRATIONS.

BELIEVED THE SPA TO BE WELL OVERPRICED.

SERVICE: OUR CABIN BOY/2 WAITERS ALL WERE EXCELLENT ALWAYS A SMILE AND WONDERFUL SERVICE. SIMILAR WITH REST OF ONBOARD STAFF

ENTERTAINMENT: THIS WAS MIXED I.E.

AZURA IN HOUSE COMPANY DID 6 SHOWS OF WHICH 3 WERE GOOD AND 3 POOR, LADY SINGERS WERE JUST TOO LOUND. OUTSTANDING ACT WAS THE VENTRILOQUIST WHO DID 2 SHOWS, THE TRIBUTE ELTON JOHN/KENNY ROGERS SHOWS WERE GOOD BUT THE ELITE SINGERS WERE POOR.

DISEMBARKATION: ALTHOUGH WE NEEDED TO PLACE TRAVEL BAGS OUTSIDE CABIN BY MIDNIGHT WE WERE ALLOWED TO STAY ON BOARD THE NEXT DAY UNTIL OUR DEPARTURE TO AIRPORT WHICH WE WERE DELIGHTED WITH. GOT TO AIRPORT APPRAX 150 MINS BEFORE DEPARTURE, AGAIN DREAMLINER HOME. Less

Cabin review: C256

AMPLE SIZE WITH NO NOISE AND PLENTY OF ROOM TO PUT CLOTHES ETC AWAY.

Port and Shore Excursions


A GOOD 90 MIN WALK THRO FOREST WHICH IS QUITE TOUGH, NEED TO BE FIT.


FAR TO COMMERICAL
