Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
Azura lacks the wow factor
Flew from Manchester on Thomas Cook. Good flight on time and we had booked extra leg room seats so we had no complaints about the flight. Easy transfer from the plane via bus to the ship and our bags were in our cabin within a couple of hours very impressive.

We had a deluxe balcony cabin on deck 9 nice cabin only problem our balcony was overlooked by the cabins above.

Atrium was too small to host the dance classes that we attended but the dance instructors Julie and Simon were very good and we did learn to do a couple of dances.

Other entertainers were average, the seascreen was difficult to see and the same films were repeated over and over again.

Glasshouse - excellent food but service is very slow, lovely wine.

Sindu - Had one meal that was excellent but the second one we had was average.

Seventeen - Nice meal sat outside on veranda

Planet Bar- Relaxing bar area

Verona- Very nice food good service, go early to get a seat or a buzzer otherwise you will not get in

Malabar- Gets very crowded and very hot

Manhattan - Some seats have a blocked view with big pillars in the way

Venezia - Best described as a canteen crowded shortage of seats and average food, warm plates and glasses even for cold juice and salad.

Freedom dining - Very disappointed with both the food and service, especially the service staff needs to have more training........... in being polite and try smiling

Enjoyed afternoon tea in the pennisular, relaxing experience apart from the crumpets that come flying across the table from the waiters my husband said he felt like putting a sign on his back saying NO for the third time I do NOT want a crumpet because they did not listen to you.

Playhouse - Too small gets very busy you need to get their early to get seats even though they now do 3 shows every night.

One of the hi lights of the whole cruise was when Ventura did a sail past us in aruba what a wonderfull atmosphere on board for the sailaway.
