Sail Date: Mar 2024

Have cruised many times, usually on P and O, this time we flew to Tenerife, cruised around Canaries, Madeira, mainland Spain, Sardinia, and Greece. We really enjoyed the ports, flights were good too. The staff on board Azura were lovely, very hard working and always willing to please. Our cabin was a balcony and light and airy, but showing its age.

However, we found all the cutbacks took the edge of what used to be a wonderful experience. The linen on the beds was clean but was well worn, needed replacing. A few stains on the carpet. Even the biscuit in the cabin was the same one rock hard, and tiny for the 20 days cruise. The Headliners tried very hard but no ‘stage sets’ just singing/dancing. Tribute act to John Denver/Neil Diamond was Ok, Comedian was OK. Folk/shanty group were good too. We did enjoy Pulse - sang a varied range of songs.

Food in the MDR - I believe there was a choice of around 6 mains, 1 was sirloin steak every evening which was tasteless and had grissle. 2 vegetarian also. On special evenings there was the choice to choose from an extra menu but that was an extra charge. No lobster as was the norm in past years!
