For warm Caribbean weather. Great staff on board, lovely passengers. Mediocre food. Dreadful cabin on deck 14 immediately under pool deck where noisy activities, night and day. No respite from silly sail away parties to late night revels. Crew banging heavy items around late night and very early morning. Very poor entertainment. All the music was geared up to a younger generation than the mainly retired or elderly cruisers.The Headliners group were enthusiastic and quite talented but the material was wrong, again, geared for a younger audience. The drinks are overpriced, as are the shore tours. Although the food was mainly acceptable it was only of moderate quality. The beef was always tough, as were the pork chops. The only decent meat was the ever popular lamb shank. The parts of call were not at very salubrious places. In the towns immediately in the docking area, it felt a bit unsafe to walk around. In summary, apart from the excellent crew and passengers, the cruise was a bit dreadful. Read Less

We just returned home from a fabulous 15 night Pre-Xmas Caribbean cruise aboard the P&O ship Azura. We flew into Barbados on a Tui Dreamliner from Manchester on the 1st December. The flight was comfortable and well serviced with complimentary food and drink. The price for 15 nights in a seaview cabin inclusive of flights, transfers and meals was £1750 pp with an on-board spend allowance of £140 pp. The Azura was built in 2010 and has a crew of 1200 and a passenger capacity of 3100 and has worn its 8 years well and is a lovely ship. We were located in cabin P325 conveniently on the same level as the atrium and close to all the shops and reception. There are several dining rooms providing fixed or flexible, waiter served dining for breakfast and dinner, a casual self-serve buffet restaurant and four posh restaurants for which there is cover charge. We tried all of them. The standard dining (included in the price) was varied and the service excellent but the standard food whilst OK wouldn’t blow you away. The 24 hour self-serve buffet had a good variety but quality wasn’t great, but you will like it if you are not fussy. The best of the posh restaurants imho was the The Glass House which served great food, wine and drinks, contemporary décor, great service and was the best value with a relatively modest cover charge which varied with what you had. The Indian fushion restaurant, Sindhu, was also very good, superb service, excellent choice of food, wine and other drinks, and a reasonable cover of £20 per head. The Epicurian restaurant was pretentious and over priced at £28 per head and, they couldn’t cook a steak properly. The Beachhouse was OK, roughly equal to your average pub grub with a cover of £7.50 per head. Drinks were wide and varied and seemed fairly priced. As a real ale drinker I didn’t expect to be bowled over but to be fair I found a couple bars serving reasonable bitter/ale but you have to ask them to serve it with a big head and let it warm up a bit, its always too cold. There were four formal black tie nights, which we personally don’t go for, so on those nights we dined in either the Glass House or Beach House, which did not require the penguin look. The itinery had four sea days. To be honest the first was day was not much fun, it was overcrowded on deck and if you didn’t get out with your towel before 9.00 you struggled to get a sunbed. The other three days got better as many passengers couldn’t be bothered and then there was space for everybody. There is an exclusive area called the Retreat which you pay for. It is spacious and never over-crowded but at £175 per person for 14 days it wouldn’t be! We tried to book it for just the 4 sea days but it was all or nothing we were told. I have to say service in all areas, be it restaurants, bars, coffee shops, general shops cabin stewards etc was first class and friendly and they couldn’t do enough for you. We had a seaview cabin. It was reasonably spacious, we went for a single beds layout, the shower and toilet was adequate and the walk-in style wardrobe and cupboard and safe more than good enough. There were brew facilities, a mini bar, hair drier, TV and climate control, and enough power points (UK) The ship was very stable and at times you had to look outside to see if it was moving. But enough about the ship, the ports of call are what its really about and with the exception of Tortola (which had still not fully recovered from last years hurricane) all were extremely interesting. In each case we took a private island tour provided by the many private hire taxis, in comfortable air conditioned SUVs carrying on average 8 persons at a cost of $25 per head. All had great guides speaking better English than wot I do! Now I know P&O will warn you all about the risks in doing this, but after all they want to sell their own over-priced alternative, we had no problems. Our fave island was Antigua and we loved St Kitts. Our daily weather was just great with average temp of 28C, an odd shower and a refreshing breeze. Worth a mention was the 40 minute transfer to the ship from the airport in Barbados. Following an 8 hour flight P&O seem to think its OK to cram you all in a crammed bone shaker of a bus, with insufficient storage space for your travel case, no working seatbelts (well ours didn’t) with a driver who was in some sort of hurry whilst chatting on his phone. Not good enough P&O. But the check-in and embarkation was very efficient. So, there is no perfect cruise, it is a compromise, but as long as the good outweighs the bad then you are laughing, and on this cruise it did, very easily, and any little niggles were always satisfactorily resolved. So in a nutshell what was good :- All round service in bars and restaurants The Glass House and Sindhu restaurants Resident band Pulse Entertainment On-board activities Breakfasts (water service) Drinks Ports of call – all good Sail-away parties Cabin comfort Spa and gym Efficiency of embarking and disembarking at all ports Ships décor Galley tour (fantastic insight into what goes on behind the scenes) Manhatten lounge Live footy coverage in Brodies The huge number of bars and places to eat Daily news letter. Not so good :- The sea screen (movies under the stars) was not working – a major disappointment The Epicurian restaurant Many of public areas and bars were cold Transfer to ship in Barbados Onboard shops were over-priced Ships yours were over-priced Abysmal service on return flight Reception undermanned at peak times. So the big question is, would we do it again. We are missing it already and are planning our next one. Read Less

Food, entertainment and cabin were excellent. Was looking forward to the Grand Cayman anchorage and had Stingray trip booked. The captain refused to anchor due to strong winds. There were 3 other ships at anchor, including the much smaller Disney Magic. These ships were ferrying passengers ashore using the large local Cayman double-decker tenders. There was no explanation as to why these tenders were not used. The compensation for a day lost? - a glass of white table wine. We Brits are suckers I guess, I'm not sure if American cruisers would have been treated thusly? Lunch and diner in the main restaurants was first class. Plenty of variety and freshly cooked. The waiters were real pro's, super efficient and amazingly friendly. We preferred the buffet for breakfast, mainly due to the immense variation on offer. The only downer was the factory-made toast. It was cold, bullet hard and impervious to liquids of any sort. If the Titanic had been plated with Azura toast, it would be sailing today. The entertainment was by far the best we'd experienced on 6 ships and 3 cruise lines. A fantastic itinerary, plenty of variety and true pros. Read Less

The original itinerary was changed by the hurricanes to substitute Guadeloupe for the destroyed Tortola in British Virgin Islands. As Hurricane Irma, Harvey, Maria and Katia barrelled their way round the Caribbean in the Autumn of 2017, we became very worried about whether there would be enough left standing for us to enjoy. It was a needless concern, because we visiited nine islands and saw no damage. Boarding our P&O chartered Thomson's Dreamliner at Gatwick, we hopefully waved au revoir to our cases and settled in for eight hours of reading, announcements, meals to be eaten like a praying mantis and, of course, funny smells. It was a pleasant flight; the Dreamliner being what it is, we had to keep looking out the windows to make sure the engines were turned on because it was quiet enough to hear people scratching. Luckily, the driver found Barbados in the middle of nowhere and we duly landed to be greeted by a wall of heat and friendly faces. The forty minute coach trip to the P&O Azura was fascinating. Barbados is quite a flat island (the only one in the Caribbean that wasn’t made by a volcano) and so the loveliest scenery is mainly around the beaches. Our first trip to the Caribbean and the things we discovered. • Most places have taxi marshall's outside the welcome terminal. They will manage which taxi (minibus) you get in, leaving only when full (but at least they leave the AC on!). You pay at the end of your return journey after they pick you up at the appointed time. • Take US dollars and Euros. Don’t bother with Eastern Caribbean Dollars and be careful you know which “dollars” you are being asked for. Make sure your change is in US dollars. • Everywhere you go there is music. If you don’t like reggae, go somewhere else, because that is the theme running through most islands. • Rum Punch is often quite strong. Two will make you tipsy, and don’t mix it with their Carib beer at 5.2%, something I learned rather than heard. • Caribbean people are friendly, vibrant, kind, church-going Christians, happy and bring their children up really well. They seem to have proper family values and standards. They don't have drug problems - they have drug-trafficer problems because of their unfortunate geographic location between grower and user. • Wherever you stop, there is a terminal area with markets, shops, stalls, music and bars where you can buy duty free goods. These are invariably more expensive than in the town. Antigua (Pronounced “ANTEEGAH” - saying “ANTEEG YOU AH” singles you out as a “newbie”) A gorgeous and spectacular island, the inhabitants of which are 99% church-going Christians, and all of whom are lovely friendly souls. We went on the “Best of Antigua with Lobster Lunch” excursion for the best lobster I have ever had! Apparently another excursion with a lobster lunch was not nearly so good, so be careful which one you choose. This one visits Shirley Heights, Nelsons Dockyard (Lobster Lunch), the spectacularly beautiful rain forest and finally Mitties Bar by the beach. Verdict - Lovely island and people, safe as houses. Mitties Bar rum punches are stronger than you think. I know that now. St Kitts and Nevis A pretty little island with lovely laid back friendly people. We did the train journey round the island which had some lovely surprises, rattling and rolling it's way round that central mountain. Others did the beach and thoroughly enjoyed their day. The shops near the ship were great fun, as were the bars. Smashing friendly people. "Don't worry ...... be happy" Amber Cove - Dominican Republic This is a shopping and recreation centre built by Carnival Cruises as a clean safe oasis in the Dominican Republic. If you've been to Disney-World, it's a bit like Main Street USA. We didn’t find anyone who did the Puerto Plata (nearest town) excursion and enjoyed it on account of the fact that it seemed to be a tour through landfills. Nobody said they felt safe in the town and, outside Amber Cover, you can pay for a day at the hotel and beach next door. Those that did, didn't seem very happy with it. This Amber Cove “Carnival Cruises oasis” is clean, safe, ringed with steel fences and very well appointed. There are pools, loungers, bars, shops, water features and views, most of it being free. I loved it but others thought it was false and man-made. Which it was. I still liked it though. You don’t have to spend anything if you don’t want to. Unfortunately all telecoms were down so nobody could use the free WiFi or pay with cards. Rickshaws take you from the ship to the entrance.. It’s free, but a $2US tip per trip is gratefully received. Martinique (Actually, France, and therefore Europe) Much nicer than Guadeloupe. This was more up-market - the currency is Euros, very few take dollars. We did what most people do and took the boat from the dock to Pointe de Bout ($7 return per - person pay on board). From here you can walk to the right to a pretty, exclusive and expensive beach. Drinks here, especially on that little bar in the water, are shockingly expensive. Alternatively, walk straight on from the jetty through the lovely shops and bars (normal prices) to the big more popular beach. The boats also go to other nearby beaches which we didn’t visit. The people are lovely, friendly and helpful. And French. Yes I know. All the reviews about rudeness are unfounded. The boats are backwards and forwards from the dock every half hour. Some people walked round the town instead and reported it to be very pleasant, although a lot were closed because it was a Sunday. Guadeloupe (France again) Not our favourite stop. Use Euros and not dollars, try and speak some French if you can. We did the excursion called “Highlights of Guadeloupe” which might have been wishful thinking because some felt the highlight was getting back to the ship again. The waterfall was underwhelming, the botanical gardens a muddle and the plantation and distillery a health and safety nightmare. The rum shop was good though - every rum product you can imagine, so that made the trip worthwhile. People who did the excursion “St Anne’s Beach on your own” had a much nicer time and said it was quite safe and very pretty. Wish we'd done that! I’d like to be able to say all the people we met were friendly. Do not wear jewellery or use your mobile phone in the street. Some passengers didn’t take that advice, regrettably. Our tour guide advised us not to walk anywhere that has buildings above three storeys. Scary! The capital Point de Pitre is like downtown Marseilles. We wouldn’t walk round it, something the Captain advised over the ships tannoy before we docked. The reason that P&O haven’t been to this island for the last twenty years was no longer a mystery. Grenada Paradise. Take the water taxi from near the berth to the beach. $10pp return, $20 for a luxurious sunbed and very large brolly. A bucket of six beers, surrounded by ice costs $15 and is served by waiters who will come round to see if you need anything. Lovely beach for swimming and just chilling out. Water taxis are travelling backwards and forwards all the time. The island is safe and friendly, the people lovely, sand clean the landscape gorgeous. It used to be British. St Lucia Beautiful port, lovely friendly people. The terminal area is a chaotic mass of taxi drivers and tour sellers trying to sell you something. Just walk on, they have nowhere else to tout for business - it’s just not very well organised. People loved the beach trips and the kayaking. We found the people friendly and fun. The terminal building has shops on two levels. Whatever you do, make a point of going upstairs to Shirley's shop. She and her shop are wonderful! If you walk out of the terminal area, turn left and go to the local market a little way on the left. We had such a great time there laughing with the ladies and buying bits and pieces. If someone approaches you and hands you a handmade object or anything else, don’t take it because they will only accept money and will say you bought it by taking it. This isn’t dangerous, it’s just a nuisance. A couple went to Vigie Beach by bus. It cost $18 each return and everything they did was very expensive - umbrellas, chairs, drinks. They said they hadn’t expected to pay so much for a day at the beach and that facilities there were very basic. We were late leaving St Lucia and the Captain advised us not to venture into Castries after dark. It used to be French. St Vincent and the Grenadines A lovely friendly safe pretty island that’s almost more British than Britain. We went to the botanical gardens by taxi - $20 return. Very peaceful and beautiful place to spend an hour. Oddly, we spent two or three hours behind some beers in the terminal area which was totally the opposite of St Lucia - probably because of the people, the music and the beer! With reggae music in the background, and $3 for a local beer, why go anywhere else? Some people went to Bequie island by water taxi, where the beaches are beautiful, but there are no seats or umbrellas for non-residents. Read Less

We fancied seeing the Caribbean and sailing across the Atlantic. Our first cruise was not a disappointment! P&O were very organised and we experienced no hassle. From embarkation to the easiest disembarkation at Southampton, everything was organised for us. Food was too good, and the staff were exceptional. The Super Duper extra cost afternoon tea was enjoyable, but we would have preferred more sandwiches rather than cakes. The FREE afternoon tea really was enough for us, and more. Even, by sailing across the Atlantic from the Caribbean, there was enough activity on-board to keep us busy. We now realise that the cost of living on-board for two weeks builds up a whacking final bill, which everyone says may be expected. Next time, we will buy a photo package early in the cruise, to reduce the cost of photos. Overall, it was an amazing experience, and we can't wait for the next cruise. Well done P&O Read Less

We go nearly every year to the Caribbean because we like getting away from the cold/ wet weather and love the laid back atmosphere of the islands The Azura is a lovely ship kept very clean and the staff are mostly very happy and helpful Embarkation excellent and quick (we were the first aeroplane to land) Balcony cabin was better than usual as we chose C deck which have larger balconies but when will they get rid of the shower curtain? Our steward was excellent. Food was on the whole good except for the buffet at night. No comparison to Princess! Beach House excellent as was the Epicurean. Entertainment very good except for PO's new show. Recommend the Cuban magician and Mike Doyle who were both excellent. Excursions We went on a truck tour in Amber Cove as we dont like man made resorts and a lot of loud music. In Martinique we toured the fort very interesting.Collect the tickets at the tourist information kiosk.The rest of the time we walked the ports that we visited. Disembarkation was very efficient and it is really good that PO dont throw you off early so that you land out staying at the airport for hours. Read Less

We wanted to explore the Caribbean and had heard some good reports about P and O. The ship and holiday largely met our expectations. However,In our opinion there were too many formal nights....four out of fourteen is surely over the top..... The public areas were all very good. My partner was really impressed by the clothes shops and thought they were the best on any cruise line we have experienced. He was delighted with the two pairs of shorts he bought! We thought the food was excellent, apart from the toast and coffee....P and O chefs really need lessons in toast making. In the buffet it is left lying under what appears to be a heat lamp. This is lazy. Toast should be made on demand...as it has been on all other cruise lines we have used. The coffee is stewed. Yuck. Restaurant service In the buffet and restaurants, apart from the speciality ones, was disappointing. The waiters often disengaged, sometimes unfriendly and very rarely smiled. This is the only line we have sailed with, where tea, coffee and water have not been brought to the table when eating in the buffet. There were one or two exceptions to this, showing that a few of the staff had been properly trained. We thought the management of our luggage at the beginning and end of the cruise was excellent. It was a stress free experience to check in our luggage at the airport and see it next outside our cabin....disembarkation and return flights were done in the same way. We were allowed to use ship facilities until we left for the airport. All of this would certainly encourage us to use this line again. Well done P and O. The Thompson Dreamliner flights were extremely comfortable. We sat in the economy cabin. Overall we enjoyed the cruise. It was an extremely relaxing experience. We loved the islands we visited. We would consider using P and O again. Read Less

P & O looked after our luggage, once it was checked in at the airport the next time we saw it was at our room and the same on the way back, We flew on the Dreamliner which was very comfortable. Everything to us was great. Food lovely staff so friendly, very helpful and entertainment was very good but like most things you heard moaners around the ship re weather, food and entertainment . Sometimes I wondered if we were on the same ship. The islands that we visited were stunning, each different in their own way. We hired our own taxi and did a tour round some on the islands, the drivers are very good and know where to take you. We would definitely book another cruise on the Azura and I'm sure it will not be too long till we book our next trip. Read Less

Back Boxing Day from the fabulous Caribbean, cruised many times but this time was not so good, flight ok going out but awful on the way back, Azura was just like Butlins or Benidorm the tv programme not the place. The food had gone down hill, the little nice touches had gone, cabin steward was great. days at sea terrible to many people in one place , sun beds so close you could smell the deodorant of the person next to you , the beds were touching each other, and of course were reserved from 6am and the staff do nothing about it, some saved sun beds and then went out on an excursion. The dress code was totally ignored in the buffet in the evening and quite a few turned up in the swim wear shorts and flip flops they had on all day. The rudeness of some passengers was awful, I was almost knocked to the floor by an old chap in the buffet and my food knocked on to the floor, no sorry at all the waiter was furious. But could do nothing, in the casino on two occasions drunks were arguing with the staff and shouting out (get me a drink) again older guys not the youngsters both times security arrived calmed them down and asked them to leave, of course they were not happy about it. This is just a snap shot and my and my husband opinion, but such a shame how much it has changed and how holiday camp it all felt Read Less

We flew from Manchester and the flight was good managed to get seat together without paying the extra as did the other two couples travelling with us. Most drinks had to be paid for only tea coffee and water was free and they has an extra charge for the films. Embarkation was fairly quick and we found our cabin A deck inside we have been with P&O a few times and are pleased with the cabins lots of hanging space and the cabin steward always keep them clean. You have tea and coffee which we like. We were on first sitting the food was good but not always hot but plenty to choice from we were on a table of 11 maybe that was why it was not always hot the waiters were very good and saw to our needs very well. We found the entertainment not so good and most of the Headliner shows we had seen before with better singers Lots of tribute singers who were not that good Bernie Flyn was good as was the Cuban magic man, but the rest not so good. We did our own thing in all of the ports This was a good Christmas cruise for the price we paid as we didn't book till late the staff were always helpful and polite ready to speak to you at any time. We left on Boxing day and it all went well with seats together for all our party and only a 7 1/2 hour flight home Read Less

The flight from Manchester was well organised and we were soon in the departure lounge, it may be my imagination but every time I visit the airport the amount of seating get less. The terminal was very busy as Saturday appears to be a popular day for travelling. The flight of eight hours plus passed reasonable well with some reasonable food on the way, there was very little free entertainment on the television, you were required to pay an extra four pounds for a better selection although you got free head phones. On arrival at Barbados the embarkation was slick and relatively painless. We had a balcony cabin in the middle on the Riviera deck unfortunately it was under the pool area and meant that every morning we heard the staff setting out the sun beds, apart from that it was a good cabin and we didn’t hear the ‘Sail away’ parties. The facilities in the cabin were good with tea/coffee available fresh ice everyday even tid bits like biscuits and chocolates, you also got a couple of bottles of water free. One word of warning if you’re taking a charger for you phone etc with a USB port get one with the USB port anywhere but the bottom as the sockets are right close to the dressing table top and there’s no room underneath. Cedric our cabin attendant kept the room spotless and no request was to much trouble. Except for Formal nights we ate mostly in the Peninsula dining room with it’s Freedom dining and except for one night we found the service fast and friendly. The menus had some weird and wonderful items some of which we’d never heard of. In the buffet there were a good selection although there were themed nights where there were no alternatives. One thing I noticed was the atmosphere in the buffet and dining rooms was subdued, very few of the waiting staff seemed to be happy although still very efficient. On deck the grill has changed so that most of the choices were already cooked and ready for pick-up, they also had a large refrigerator where you could pick up a sandwich, salad or a cold sweet, this turned out to be very popular as people could take them back to their loungers to eat. Having traveled on several cruises P&O and others we were disappointed with the entertainment staff, most ships have a t least one quiz in the morning this was missing the first was a sheet of questions handed out on the pool deck. I found for what ever reason, the entertainment staff were lacking in the usual friendly banter with the passengers. The theater shows were very good with some really excellent performers. On the pool deck they showed some good films on the deck screen, so you could sun bath and watch a film at the same time. Having been here before we didn’t take any tours being happy to go ashore and wander around the local town getting away from the tourist shops and roaming the back streets where we saw the normal lives of the locals. There weather on the cruise was fantastic 30° C most of the day with the odd shower early morning. Relaxing on the balcony we were lucky to see Dolphins and Flying fish with the normal Frigate birds and an occasional Pelican for company. The flight home was a bit fraught Barbados departure lounge was full to overflowing wit people milling around looking for a seat, the flight itself was delayed, why I don’t know as it arrived on time, the crest of it was uneventual.

We have just returned from an Atlantic cruise on the Azura which before I start my reveiw I must say we enjoyed but I have a few suggestions that could have made it better. The boarding process was horrendous it started from landing at the airport after a brilliant flight on the Dreamliner we had to sit on the plane for 20min becauses P and O weren't ready for us then when we got to the ship we sat on the bus for another 15min as the queue was to long to let us in when we did get in we were hearded like cattle round the shed my worse experience of boarding in all the years we have cruised Having got on the ship no one to help us find our cabin and as the deck and number system is differant to what we have had before was very confusing Also very little to do in the days you were at sea if you didn't want to dance or go to Spa demonstrations there was little else let's have more guest speakers more games ect. The only speaker was a poet although I heard he was good poetry is not everyone's cup of tea Having had my moan I have to say the cabin was good and kept very clean. The food beautiful lots of choice and tasty the entertainment good the comedians especially. The staff very friendly and helpful so everything was ok there We will go with them again so it couldn't have been that bad so go and enjoy Read Less
