I have deliberately postponed writing this review for a couple of weeks to be able to think positively and constructively about our first time cruise with P & O Azura. Having previously cruised twice with MSC and once with CMV I anticipated, (purely on the basis of other Cruise Critic members reviewing negatively about these two companies), that the P & O experience would be different in someway. Here`s my thought`s
A cruise to Norway will always be spectacular, Its simply stunning regardless of who or what ship you decide to cruise on. This was our second cruise to Norway in a two year period and again it didn`t disappoint. Weather can be changeable but the scenery just wouldn't be the same if the weather hadn't made it that way! My only tip if you've not been before, make sure your cruise "port of calls" include Geiranger !
A104 a forward balcony cabin and our abode for 7 nights is well thought out and spacious, designing the cabin in such a way provides lots of clothes hanging space and plenty room to place a number of suit cases underneath. Particularly liked this as it means the rest of the main room space isn't cluttered by empty suitcases for the rest of the cruise! Nicely appointed with a dressing table, comfortable chair, fridge, flat screen TV and most importantly a comfortable bed. Being at the very front of the ship the cabin is noticeably very quiet due to its location at the end of the corridor, no constant traffic of people walking past and no engine or propulsion noises. It is at the front so expect to feel like your at sea, its a bonus for me but if you like less movement its not going to be for you! Note A104 does have a glass fronted balcony and not steel as per the P and O description, this will also apply to A103 too. Cabin steward, Wilson, 10 out of 10, very caring and great attention to detail.
