it was our first 7 night cruise experience ... our Cabin Stewart was 5* star right from the word go, he went above and beyond the call of duty, he most amazing, incredible man I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and talking to, the cabin was also clean, tidy and presentable. the Shamrock Tenors Irish group were a 1000* stars vote from me, they delivered an utterly INCREDIBLE and I mean INCREDIBLE set both in the Manhatten Bar {this is where I saw them perform} but I was also told they delivered the most amazing off the charts insane performance in the Playhouse Theatre {I was told by Passengers} Eric Landlard Afternoon Tea is a MUST DO in the Epicuran Restaurant trust me its incredible. the ONLY entertaintment worth seeing was .. 1: the Headliners Theatre Company & Stephen Mulhern with their magic show ''Astronishing'' and the Irish Group ''The Shamrock Tenors} {this is why I would only give these two entertainment acts 5* stars} NOW FOR MY BAD MOANING DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT order Room Service for lunch as its only Included in you're cruise packages for Breakfast and Evening Dinner IF you have 3 adults in a cabin and 1 of them doesn't drink alcohol don't worry as you people who drink alcohol can still have their alcohol drinks package and the person who doesn't drink can have an NONE alcoholic drinks package for the same cabin {despite P&O Cruises drinks package wording saying different - we were told that by a P&O rep who called today about feedback for our cruise} the hot food in the Freedom Dining Restaurants were NEVER EVER hot like they should be when cooked at temperature {it was either luke warm hot food or cold hot food} the Country Line Dancing / Salsa Dancing should NOT have been organised on the stairs of the Altrium Shopping Centre as it is a way too SMALL area and not everyone can take part as its way too tiny area the Rotterdam, Netherlands Excursion Tour was YAWN / DULL / BORING although I couldn't attend this tour due to suffering with an extreme bad headache which was making me ill, apparently I was told this again was just a normal high street chocolate shop / cafe tour with NO demostration as promised in the excursion summary The Ice Cream Parlour on board was difficult to find, once found it said on our Cabin Leaflet that The Ice Cream Parlour closes at 7pm I arrived there at 6:25pm to find it CLOSED but the rest of the Entertainment was Rubbish and not worth seeing the P&O Company seriously needs to take the ship Azura off its cruise list and OVER HAUL IT / modenise it as it needs a Cinema, it needs a Cookery School{like the Brittania}, it needs a LIVE LOUNGE etc they did more on board activities for SOLO travellers than families or adults travelling together and finally the WIFI is way over priced, you can't get WIFI in you're cabins and they need the CLOUD WIFI installed on all levels within their Azura ship rather than their own P&O Wifi which is utterly crap all over the ship

Good stuff is listed 1st and bad issues listed 2nd

it was our first 7 night cruise experience ...

our Cabin Stewart was 5* star right from the word go, he went above and beyond the call of duty, he most amazing, incredible man I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and talking to, the cabin was also clean, tidy and presentable.

the Shamrock Tenors Irish group were a 1000* stars vote from me, they delivered an utterly INCREDIBLE and I mean INCREDIBLE set both in the Manhatten Bar {this is where I saw them perform} but I was also told they delivered the most amazing off the charts insane performance in the Playhouse Theatre {I was told by Passengers}

Eric Landlard Afternoon Tea is a MUST DO in the Epicuran Restaurant trust me its

incredible.

the ONLY entertaintment worth seeing was .. 1: the Headliners Theatre Company & Stephen Mulhern with their magic show ''Astronishing'' and the Irish Group ''The Shamrock Tenors} {this is why I would only give these two entertainment acts 5* stars}


NOW FOR MY BAD MOANING

DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT order Room Service for lunch as its only Included in you're cruise packages for Breakfast and Evening Dinner

IF you have 3 adults in a cabin and 1 of them doesn't drink alcohol don't worry as you people who drink alcohol can still have their alcohol drinks package and the person who doesn't drink can have an NONE alcoholic drinks package for the same cabin {despite P&O Cruises drinks package wording saying different - we were told that by a P&O rep who called today about feedback for our cruise}

the hot food in the Freedom Dining Restaurants were NEVER EVER hot like they should be when cooked at temperature {it was either luke warm hot food or cold hot food}

the Country Line Dancing / Salsa Dancing should NOT have been organised on the stairs of the Altrium Shopping Centre as it is a way too SMALL area and not everyone can take part as its way too tiny area

the Rotterdam, Netherlands Excursion Tour was YAWN / DULL / BORING

although I couldn't attend this tour due to suffering with an extreme bad headache which was making me ill, apparently I was told this again was just a normal high street chocolate shop / cafe tour with NO demostration as promised in the excursion summary

The Ice Cream Parlour on board was difficult to find, once found it said on our Cabin Leaflet that The Ice Cream Parlour closes at 7pm I arrived there at 6:25pm to find it CLOSED

but the rest of the Entertainment was Rubbish and not worth seeing

the P&O Company seriously needs to take the ship Azura off its cruise list and OVER HAUL IT / modenise it as it needs a Cinema, it needs a Cookery School{like the Brittania}, it needs a LIVE LOUNGE etc

they did more on board activities for SOLO travellers than families or adults travelling together

and finally the WIFI is way over priced, you can't get WIFI in you're cabins and they need the CLOUD WIFI installed on all levels within their Azura ship rather than their own P&O Wifi which is utterly crap all over the ship
