We chose the ship for the intineraries and for the faciilites it offers and we did two single week cruises in June of this year and then in November rather than a single two week holiday. Having cruised mainly on RCI and Celebrity ships, the Azura falls short, but mostly in ways that could be remedied. The feeling we had is that P&O is a notch below the other lines in terms of service and quality. We enjoyed the holidays and there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the Azura; it just falls short.
There is plenty good about the ship:
-the lack of gimmicks (climbing walls, flow riders, private beach clubs etc) maximises deck space and so we always found sunbeds
