Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2012
Cabin: Superior Twin Outside

We travelled the day before and stayed Premier Inn opposite where the ship docked.We were delayed, as there had been medical emergency on the previous cruise return.

Wrong baggage delivered same printed labels as ours other person hadnt changed cabin number !!. Cabin smaller than I had ever experienced before with the tiniest shower, but it was fast and hot so ok.Not much cupboard space, but hey ho there was a laundrette and irons.

Smooth outward crossing took ship tour Lisbon, glad we did it is a big town. Did all Canary Islands on our own. Got to Azures stayed on board 1st island as were to walk a lot in Porta Delgada. BUT Captain came over tannoy at1550 and said Porta Delgada cancelled as bad weather due in Bay of Biscay and we MUST get to Dover in time.

Cabin Review

Superior Twin Outside

Cabin A

Cabin 4082 Main deck a Superior outside twin gradeB

Very small. Little cupboard space, 2 small hanging rails and a narrow cupboard with a few teeny tiny drawers in in below the safe.

There were also 2 tiny drawers about 6 inches accross on the bedside cupboard.

Shower the smallest ever seen with the dreaded plastic shower curtain. I really do not know how my husband managed to use it.

The bathroom also had tiny triangle cupboards accross the corner of the bathroom by the toilet but not much would fit in there and a desk, that held the tea tray so most space was taken up ( we estimated it was about 7 feet 6 inches wide and a tub chair at the foot of the bed, (No fridge)

Good location, quiet and midships. Formal restaurant down corridor. Up 2 flights of stairs to lounge/promednade deck.
