Amazing Caribbean

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
My wife & I have just returned from our first ever cruise.we were recommended the Azura by my son who bad been on it brfore.He & his wife travelled with us.

We had a wonderful time.The choice of food in the Peninsular restaurant was outstanding(up to 5 courses).Our waiters Nichil & Sachin attended to our every need,always with a smile on their faces.On our last night The head waiter organized several others to gather round our table,to sing Congratulations,as we were celebrating our %0th wedding anniversary(but not until 23rd of March)

If you didn't want to eat in your allotted restaurant,as there was a dress code each evening,then you could eat at one of the self service restaurants.The choice of food in these was excellent too.During the day we used these for breakfasts & lunches.

The entrtainment in the evening was excellent with a choice of venues.The playhouse theatre put on the big shows,but you could watch other entertainers in the Manhattern, More Malibar,etc.Dancere were accommodated in the Atrium,with professional instuctors to help.

If it got too hot on deck,there were always top films being shown during the day in one of the air conditionred venues,as well as the huge screen,at the end of one of the swimming pools.

The islands visited were all a bit different,with a choice of trips round with one of the numerous taxi drivers,or to one of the beautiful beeches

All in all,this is a wonderful choice of ship which I would recommend to anyone. February/March is probably best for people in our age group.

Well done P&O for a magnificent time Less

lovely island again part of the Dutch group.One of the features is a huge bridge manufactured in Holland and high enough for large cruise ships to pass under.

the island is split in two,the French side is in the north & the Dutch side is in the south.Philipsburg where the ship docks is on the Dutch side.Lots of lovely shops bars & restaurants.

We did an island tour with a taxi from outside the port.It is very hilly but you get some marvellous views from various points.A t the top of the island is an active volcano which last erupted 50 years ago.At wAllilabou bay you can see where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed
