Chose this cruise because of itinerary around Mediterranean. Embarking was very organised and pleasant and we’re on board within 30 minutes. Our state room had a large window and was spotless and had spaces for everything some quests said they missed having a kettle in room so they’re now providing them which does come in handy.Beds are very comfortable and very good quality bedding. We had anytime dining and we alternated between buffet and waiter service all of which was lovely, buffet was much better than I expected there was everything you could want always hot and good quality, the breakfast was lovely good to see nice back bacon and proper sausage and American pancakes was a treat . We also loved the international cafe for a coffee and lovely sandwiches and cakes which was 24 hour. Thought it was great having room service free of charge, we only got the soft drinks package well worth it also included hot chocolate which was very nice. Bar prices are expensive as is the packages for alcohol think more people would buy them if they was cheaper.We did a few excursions off the ship which we organised through cruising excursions which were much cheaper than princess, Getting on and off at the ports was hassle free thought it was a nice touch after being site seeing all day in the heat staff was waiting for you with water and cold flannels, in fact I would say the staff make the cruise , because they will sort anything out for you always happy to help and serve you ,they work really hard , so well done to them. Our only negative was the entertainment sorry but thought it was a bit naff most of the time more geared up for older folk, maybe just a lively bar to sit in with chart music playing instead of piano and singers which aren’t great, because the age group is now very mixed on ship , we even tried the night club which was empty, but it wouldn’t put me off I would definitely book with princess again Read Less

After being shuffled like sheep in Southampton we went aboard the Azura. Excited and eager to enjoy ourselves we found our cabin inside stateroom. It was pleasant enough except the wardrobe was just a hanging rail. We went to get something to eat and found a cafe on level 5 serving tea/coffee and cakes at a cost. This was supposed to sustain us until dinner after missing lunch. The first night was ruined by banging and clanging so little sleep was had. We reported this to customer services several times for 10 days when they agreed to move us to another cabin. This was a lot quieter. The food was good although in the buffet areas it was difficult to find a seat and sometimes this would result in your food getting cold. The captain did not turn up to the welcome cocktail party until after we went to dinner. We did not get to our first port Malaga because he said it was too rough. The ship was not very stable as every little movement in the sea was felt. The shows were good - The theatre was a good venue but the other two venues were not suitable as the seating was arranged that people had their backs to the show. The big screen was a good idea but when the weather was bad you had to shiver to watch the films. The constant pestering of the staff trying to encourage you to buy drinks was annoying, there was no let up. We came to the conclusion that we would avoid P & O ships a this was a bad experience enough to put you off cruising. We had enough of queueing on this cruise and will go back to the smaller ships which we cruised on before. Read Less
