Second Cruise - already planning the next!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Anyway, my personal experience was totally different - very clean ship, excellent staff service from our Cabin Steward (Mathew), good entertainments staff led by Neil Oliver, a very approachable Captain (Paul Brown), as well as nothing but courteous friendly staff throughout. The only gripe I have is about the first Port of Call - La Coruna, although we did not go on a booked tour, we were not very impressed with the place at all, and maybe a stop in Lisbon would have been better to break up the number of sea days. Best place we visited was Corfu, visited the Achelon Palace and had a look around the Old Town. Sail in to Venice was also worthwhile (make sure you book a Starboard Cabin - or Port side for on the way out). As previously stated the Glasshouse is worth a visit for the Wine Flights (three glasses of wine chosen by Olly Smith), and the Steaks / Fish. Watched a few shows in the Main Playhouse, also enjoyed watching a couple of films on the outdoor Seascreen at night when it was a bit cooler (blankets provided). Missed a couple of shows in the Manhattan Showbar as this venue was always full when we got there. Going back to the subject of Tours - we did lose 25 minutes off one tour due to the late arrival of fellow passengers (not the Companies fault), but they (the passengers) didn't even apologise to those of us waiting on the coach!! In the main had an excellent holiday, would certainly go on Azura again - it is only your fellow passengers that may affect how much you enjoy it. Less
