Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
Flaming October - beware the ides of July12
14 October left Southampton. Once again only 30+ minutes to boarding from leaving the car. But as the Exlipse and QM2 + one other were sailing at the same time getting to the port was actually very slow, crawling traffic from Rownham Services.

I pity cruisers booked on P&O on 3rd July next year - 7 ships arriving 7 ships sailing, that's 60,000 passengers in 8000 (guesstimate) cars either leaving or entering the docks. Well that wont be my problem.

I said this was an update - the Food was good last time and very good this time. The waiters in the free dining areas were much more friendly and helpful. Even the entertainment was much improved - three great comedians and a classical guitarist.

The weather was very sunny and warm - even needed the sun tan lotion. That was not of P&Os doing.

Just one gripe my cabin developed a noise which was very annoying - the solution was ear plugs. 3 Engineers could not solve the problem. Probably will need a ships refit.

Another word of warning Duty Free. Get it ashore especially if you are luck enough to get to Gibraltar. Eg P&O Gordons £17 Off-licence Gordons £7.50 B&H £37 P&O Off-licence £21.50 (Gibraltar)
