Booked a cruise to get away from the UK winter.Was not to sure about sailing on a ship with 3000+ passengers.Need not have worried the P&O Azura was designed so that there was plenty of room on deck to find a lounger either around a pool or in a quiet area, we never felt that there was 3000+ passengers.Days in port were no problem getting on and off was easy and never had to Wait.On the last day when we had to go through immigration we have never had it so well organised or gone through so quickly. The food was excellent with plenty of choices and you could always ask or get more if you so wished.The shows in the evenings were some of the best we had seen on cruise ships and the comedians told clean jokes so that any one could go to see them with out being concerned about the content. Our cabin was comfortable and with a reasonable amount of room.The one possible down side was in the bathroom where the shower cubical was to say the least, small.I would doubt that someone of a larger size could get in and comfortably shower.

The only other service which we say was not up to standard was the quality of the ships photographers.The standard of the photos especially on formal nights left a lot to be desired,in all the years we have cruised I don't think I can remember so many photos being left in the racks.

If you wanted to have a little luxury spend a day in the retreat,but you have to book early as it is very popular.

All in all we can say with all honesty that we were delighted with the ship and the crew who at all times went out of their way to be of help to ensure our cruise went without any problems.We enjoyed the Azura so much that we have already booked another cruise in the Caribbean for next February.
