Azura Cruise Review by Skingsley8

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Very disappointing, ship tired and staff very lacklustre, not one member of staff went that extra mile,

Hygiene not enforced at all surprising considering that they had noro virus a few weeks before.

Entertainment team non existent, buffet food appalling, dining room just satisfactory, poor service and no interaction, served as if we were in a fast food establishment. We had an issue with over charging so went to Customer relations to sort out, assistant started to deal with our problem then just answered the telephone whilst we were in the middle of a conversation when I pointed out that this was rude he replied that it was a medical emergency, but surely these calls should be taken in private, I don’t think it’s very professional as I heard all the details of the illness and their room number.

Guest were cross between benefit street and Butlins, unfortunately P & O have lowered their prices so this has resulted in dropped standards in all areas. If you like Benidorm then this is for you, but personally I will rather spend more and go on Celebrity or Azamara.

We found it quite amusing that our room steward hardly spoke to us at all for the entire cruise, but on disembarkation he was hovering around no doubt expecting a tip, which we would have gladly given if we had any form of service from him.

Disembarkation an actual farce, we chose to take off our own luggage but they couldn’t even get the right deck number to exit some we’re saying deck 6 whilst our paperwork said deck 5!

Wouldn’t rush to book another P & O cruise unless I was desperate for a cheap no frills get away.
