Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
Butlins sur Mer

NIce ship, though odd design, with no big atrium like RC ones have. However, one big plus is the reasonable bar prices, unlike RC who are a total rip-off. Also a sensible automatic gratuity policy.

Nightly entertainment pretty dire I was informed- didn't go to it myself.

Food fine, though it escapes me, why, when going to somewhere hot, they STILL expect blokes to dress like penguins for 4 nights of the cruise. Outmoded IMHO. I didn't take part, which consigns one to the Venezia/Verona Cafe for the evening.

Why have a prom deck that doesn't go all round the ship?

Sadly, many passengers were made up of men in their 60's who think they can look cool and younger by shaving their heads and having tattoos. Likewise their women folk, who didn't tend to shave their heads but still had the obligatory tattoo. They were the same people who liked to roast in the sun on the loungers they insisted on reserving with towels from the early morning, so they tended to look like lobsters later on. Clearly the entertainment was geared to them: only problem was that some days one was driven from the upper decks, as there was loudly playing "music" with a booming base, by one pool and loudly playing football on the big screen by the other.

Excursions the usual rip off- take my advice and don't book ANY- just find a taxi driver or hire a car when you get to an island. IT works well and is much cheaper.
