Well we are back from our Azura Christmas cruise (flew out 25th Dec from Manchester on the dreamliner). I was going with an open mind as we usually do, we have sailed on Ventura and oceana and a few other cruise lines prior to p&o. I was hoping we would like Azura as we loved Ventura. I have to say that this was the best cruise by far for us, it even beat our cruise around the Caribbean for our honeymoon 10 years ago, and we had our two young children and my mum with us.
I have to say the age range of the passengers was great a real good mixture and there were also 300 children on board which it never seemed that many. There was a great atmosphere on board and we made friends with young and old.
While on board we renewed our wedding vows to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary, as we did want to marry at sea. Captain Camby was lovely, funny and really chatty guy and I love his thoughts of the day.
The cabin is a good size when the Pullmans are up. Both daughter hit their head on the Pullmans several times and then daughter cut her head open on the corner of the Pullman where you walk through to table and balcony area. Cabin steward was great and padded it for us but they need to be looked at really. Apart from that good size and comfortable, we had the same cabin on Ventura. Balcony a decent enough size to sit out too
