This was our second cruise and first time with P&O, the Azura is a very nice ship as and expected all area;s are kept very clean and tidy. We had a superior deluxe cabin which was very nice on deck 9 mid-ship on the port side and could find no fault with it and the cabin steward was fantastic.

We had freedom dining and on average waited 15 to 30 minutes for a table for 2 each night but if you were willing to share a table you usually walked straight in.

The daily magazine states that you cannot reserve a sunbed before 9am and you cannot leave your towel on it all day if you are not there as it would be removed. Well that is a bit of a sore point because lots of people put towels on their beds and only spent maybe about 1hr on them all day on the really nice days and no one removed them at all come on P&O this really has to be enforced properly so that it is fair for everyone.

Also in both the self service restaurant's (Smash & Grab) on deck 15 the variety and quality of the food is not what I was really expecting and needs to be improved, also STOP the waiters from grabbing your tray before you have finished your meal, this was really BAD.

You have to try the Glass Restaurant there is a small charge but the food and staff are very, very good, well worth the money.

Overall I think the cruise was good value for money and would go again with P&O
