"All of the above in many ways were minor issues, we enjoyed our cruise, but the cumulative effect is such that we are unlikely to cruise with P&O in the near future, also a missed port due to high winds was disappointing although clearly not the fault of P&O.We have used the Retreat (equivalent) on the Princess Caribbean ( identical ship to Azura) and it is so much better, cleaner, better food, massage , better sunbeds...."Read More

My Wife and I chose this cruise as a Cruise and Stay holiday. We had 3 nights in the Iberostar Bougainville in Costa Adeje before being transferred to the Azura. Boarding was excellent,easily the best we’ve ever experienced. In no time at all we were on board and in the Atrium. Now we have heard a lot of glowing reports about the Azura and we were really looking forward to our cruise . Many ...

3 day stay in Tenerife and 7 day cruise,stopping at Maderia , Lanzarote and Gran Canaria. Ship in general looks tired. Furniture in cabins adequate but dated; a lot of brown and beige. Light displays in main dining areas were not functioning properly. The food was the most disappointing aspect. I am a Pescetarian and my husband vegetarian. The food in the main dining rooms were ...

Took a 10 day trip. First three nights in Santa Cruz. Nice enough city. Very clean. Usual shops etc. They were celebrating the Epiphany which meant on the Friday it was bank holiday so everything was shut ( jan 6 th). Got on the boat. Billed as a P and O’s midsize adults only. Food Buffet very much same day after day. Very compact and not set out very well at all. Distinct lack of ...

So cheap cruising has become like a trip to Benidorm on P&O The ship is dated. Understaffed and lacking the glitz and glamour we have experienced on other ships. Our toilet flooded on the first night and we had flushing issues for 2 weeks so did our neighbouring rooms The Buffet closed too early, some days we missed lunch due to trip return times . Buffet often closed 2.30 The App for ...

This cruise fitted in with my work holidays and my childs school holidays - it was a decent price, as it included the flights - shame they where from Birmingham, as Manchester would have been better. There was 3 cabins booked - we had linked all 3 of the bookings - but sadly on NYE the first night only 2 of the cabins where at the same table for dinner - and this was at 5.30pm - when we only ...

We chose this cruise because it was seven nights and days in the sun. It was also to celebrate my birthday on New Years Eve. As we had sailed on Azura before we were familiar with the ship. We had requested a table for 8 for New Years Eve. We were given a table for two in a dark corner at the back of the ship. P&O were informed that this was a special birthday. No acknowledgment whatsoever. ...

The good points were, Price reasonable, Comfortable, and clean. Now the stuff that needs attention. Most of these have been done by MARELLA for years. The Playhouse shows have been the same for the last 3 years so maybe a change would help there. The pantomime was BRILLIANT by the way. Entertainment in the music venues could be more varied. There was only 1 female singer in the Malabar ...

This was our first cruise at Christmas and first voyage on P&O. We decided on Azura around the Canary Islands as the dates worked perfectly for us. The ship is very dated for its age and in need of some TLC in the public areas and a good deep clean. It was 50/50 if the toilets would be clean when you used them, bins overflowing floors wet!!! First time I’ve been on a cruise and seen toilets ...

Cruise for Christmas! Sounds lovely right Except for bacon found in a vegan meal. Plastic found in the buffet tikka masala and rude receptionists who get defensive when you tell them something is wrong rather than helping and then ignore you until you go away. A virtual queuing system that doesn’t work despite the receptionists and restaurant staff swearing by it. All the specialty restaurants ...
