Azura Cruise Review by Pyer

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

We have cruised on Ventura and on embarking found the Azura identical in layout so finding our way around the ship was simple.We booked a late saver fare and got a balcony cabin to the rear of the ship but found no engine noise to trouble us.The cabin was clean and well presented kept that way by our lovely steward Bill.All crew we encountered were happy and well trained in their jobs .We were allocated second sitting and enjoyed the company on our table with much to talk about.We always find fellow cruisers good company and only too pleased to join in conversations.

The decor on board is getting a bit worn in places we admit but understand that an upgrade is due soon.

Entrainment on P and O we believe is probably one of the best at sea and enjoyed many of the shows.Much praise must go to the young troop the Headliners who were great in all their different shows.Singers,comedians and specialty acts kept us entertained.

Food on board geared to British tastes of course was fine,nothing to complain about but also nothing to rave about either.Could do better.We believe that since getting rid of daily gratuities corners are cut in some places ie food quality and a hike in drink prices etc.

Weather was good for us as in Britain it was wet and miserable,enjoyed the midnight sun experience on several nights.All ports we visited lived up to expectations and St Petersburg was the highlight of our cruise and we must say that shore excursions by PO

Were well organised and very memorable.

Disembarked easily at Southampton and now look forward to our next trip,must get those brouchers out.

Rostock (Warnemunde)

We were pleasantly surprised at the pretty little seaside resort of Warnemunde and recommend a leisurely stroll around its quaint streets and harbour


Capital of Finland,clean way to get around ,Do not miss indoor central market where the locals go to eat lunch,Splendid fish etc

Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

Right in the centre.A must see

St. Petersburg

What can one say,just breathtaking the opulence of Peterhof palace alone was worth the journey

St. Petersburg

Exceptional, gold leaf everywhere,sumptuous apartments ,not rushed through and really enjoyed the visit

St. Petersburg

Bus stops at this central location and people could walk around unhindered


Sunday and sunshine ,there was plenty going on in this beautiful medieval town One of the highlights of the Baltic


The best part of visiting this beautiful city is the fantastic cruise along the many miles of the shore approaching the city ,hundreds of islands and beautiful houses so close to the ship amazing.


Went to Tivoli gardens ,inspiration of Walt Disney for his theme parks and then on the canals via hop on hop off bus
