She wore an Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie white polka dot swimsuit - well after all my granddaughter, Martha is only six months old and it was her first cruise under the Mediterranean sun.
My daughter, her husband, and Martha, together with my wife and I joined P&O Cruises' Azura in Southampton for a ten day cruise down to Lisbon, Gibraltar, Malaga, Cadiz and La Carona in the hope of some autumn sun before the clocks went back and we were not disappointed.
We were also not disappointed with Azura, a ship my family has sailed on a number of times before. The crew were as welcoming as ever, the cabins comfortable and well cared for, with service and food second to none.
Our cabin was on the starboard side of Azura, quite close to the bow, and only a short distance from one of the main set of lifts, which made it convenient for moving around the ship.Lloyd was our steward, who looked after the cabin and made sure everything was clean and tidy and was only too pleased to make sure the ice bucket was constantly filled but most of all he was friendly and charming.B209 was perfect for what we wanted - a peaceful place to sit and idle away an hour or so with a book from the library or just sit on the balcony and try and spot a passing pod of dolphins.
