Sun in the Baltic - July 2011

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Baltic & Northern Europe
Embarkation: Southampton

Azura is big - too big. The penny pinchers have been at work big time. No savories, only one veg in MDR. No wiener boy at receptions.

What are they doing with the Retreat? £20 a day per person just to get a pool away from the kids - joke!

All the pools say 'no jumping, no diving' pity no staff at all enforce this - who pays compensation when a 10 year old breaks your back?

One game to play with the staff is try and get them to admit anything is not perfect. They have an excuse for everything including why the raw carrot stick could be bent in a small circle and that you could play frizzbie with the eggs.

If you value your health - don't even look at the Olly Smith blended house wines, even uni students refuse to drink it! The staff just say 'it's not a bad house wine'

Despite all of the above, a great cruise, XVII is great. Sindu is fair but Atul is far too far up himself - won't even walk around 'his' restaurant when on board. More

Would we go back on Azura? Not unless its a damn good deal. Less

Cabin review: Azura Outside Stateroom E Deck P307

Terrible noises from pool table on a tiled floor above the cabin. Often going on till 2am.
