Ever since our 1st cruise, we have the cruise bug, having done the Transatlantic to the Caribbean aboard the Oceana, we re-booked for 2009, same cruise, we love it, food, service, entertainment, can't fault it, on the 2009 cruise we met Sue Holderness from the green green grass what a lovely lady had many a conversation with her and photos, she left my mum a letter in her room with a signed photo. We also made friends with Maureen & Billy from Manchester, we happened to get sun loungers next to them everyday! only sorry we never got their address to keep in touch, we did not know what to do for this hol and did not fancy a normal package hol so we have just booked a cruise for December 2011 on the Azura can't wait

Ed Stuart and Roy walker were great as were the headliners as usual, sorry we missed the Freddie Mercury tribute as we heard he was great, we went to see Rob Boyd who was also very entertaining.

I must add that the staff and the entertainment staff were all very friendly and helpful, they all work extremely hard and for long periods of time, some away from their family's for many months. The waiters in the dining hall the Adriatic in our case, Mario and his team were great, could not do enough for you and were always very friendly, they make your hol that bit more special. Just hope the Azura will be as good, can't wait to try.

Cabin review:

334
our cabin was D334 was adequate, it was great to have a balcony, however the cabin and balcony could do with refurbishing as the carpet by the door had faded and there was white filler falling out of the door frame leading to the balcony,stains on the carpet

Booked the island tour excellent trip, the guide Alex who took us around the botanical gardens was very amusing as well as interesting, the pitons and the volcano was also very good would recommend this tour

this looked a very nice port although when we called we found that it was a annual holiday and most of the shops were closed and most people were very disappointed as P&O should have known this and changed the day of calling into this port, as did some people we met on a Princess cruise
