Enjoyable cruise but a few minor niggles

P&O not as good as they were.

Joined the ship in the morning, check in was fairly quick considering the number of people to process through. Went straight to our room on Deck 10 and our luggage was already outside in the passageway. We had an ...

14 Days = 12 Day Cruise to the Med

Background - a bad start! As many people may have heard, we experienced a 2 day delay in the start of our 14 night cruise due to Azura having technical problems on the previous cruise. Whilst this was very ...
