Boarding the ship in Barbados was a well organised operation. After leaving the TUI flight from Manchester we directly boarded a bus which took us to the Azura where a bank of staff processed credit cards and signed everyone in. We took on board the allowed 2 x 1 litre bottles of wine or spirit which is way more than other cruise lines.
Once on board staff were on hand to direct us to our cabin which was in reasonable condition but as the Azura is having a refit this year it was better than we expected.
The buffet restaurant was open as was a pool deck barbecue and pizza bar. As we prefer to eat in the buffet we never use the main restaurant’s so cant comment on them. Food was always excellent and piping hot at all times and was available 24hrs. the only comment I can make is that that the tea / coffee making facility was all in the wrong order.
Clean and big enough for a couple. carpet a bit wrinkly and slight staining but is due a refit this year so ill let it go. cabin A639 is great access to the lift to the Manhattan bar and the Buffet restaurants. also only about 10 metres to the laundry room so that you can do your ironing when required.
