This was our second P&O cruise, the first being a four day mini-cruise which failed to meet nearly all of our expectations. So it was with some trepidation that we booked a two week Caribbean cruise (Dec 2016).
Flights were with Thompsons and I have to say the Dreamliner trip out from Birmingham was excellent. What was even better was that our cases, taken at Birmingham Airport, were to be delivered to our cabin on the Azura in Barbados. Didn't even need to pass through customs - just off the plane and onto the (rather dilapidated) coach.
Azura has had an update fairly recently and it was in pretty good shape - no complaints there. We had been upgraded so our balcony was bigger than expected and being midships we were to have a comfortable passage. One surprise was having two chairs on the balcony but only one footstool - despite there being plenty of room for two. We were told that only the more expensive cabins had two footstools which we found to be needless penny-pinching.
