Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Inside Stateroom

After looking forward to our second cruise with P&O, the first being on Oceana, I found myself doing lots of comparisons on the two ships and I must say that Oceana far outstrips Azura.. there is/was one particular reason for this... from day 1 on the Azura there was an almost constant smell of sewage on every deck which sometimes permeated down into main dining areas.

Having spoken to several officers regarding the matter I never got any sort of logical answer other than the statutory "it's nothing to worry about, it's not harmful to your health".

There was no way anyone on board could NOT have noticed the smell. On passing the Reception desk later on in the cruise I overheard one passenger complaining that they were unable to use their balcony due to the constant stink and the receptionist replied "what smell".

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom

Cabin was fine, enjoyed the large bed. The toilet seemed to stop working on occasion.

Staff were excellent and did more than they would have been contracted to do I feel.

Took taxi to la teresitas beach... what an incredible beach with good amenities and very reasonable prices
