  • Sail Date: Dec 2019
  • Destination: the Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom (Part Obstructed View)

have cruised with P&O several times previously and fancied some winter sun with a company we were familiar with but we had some issues on this cruise.

There was an horrendous smell of sewerage wafting around the ship over several days of the cruise and it was most unpleasant!.

Our itinerary was changed and we did not visit Grand Turk which was very disappointing as we were told this was the best place on out itinerary. I found out on the way home that this was apparently due to the grey sewage tanks being full to the brim and the port at Grand Turk could not facilitate the emptying of them so we diverted to Tortolla and Martinique was added to the itinerary instead. If this is the case, I think that is poor management!

We stayed in cabin E215 above the playhouse theatre, we did experience some noise on an afternoon from the show rehearsals which did not really bother us too much but what did bother us was that we were kept awake for the first 4-5 nights of our holiday due to a compressor type noise that went off every 10 minutes or so all through the night, it kept us awake and drove us mad but after that it stopped, I believe P&O turned it off and operated it manually after the first few days.

We could not fault the waiter service in the Meridian restaurant but the general waiter service around the ship was inadequate, there weren't enough waiters on the ship to accommodate the volume of people and you could never find a waiter around to order drinks from.

The Azura is looking a bit tired and shabby in some places.

I am not sure if I would cruise with P&O again after this as it marred our holiday quite a bit.
