Azura Cruise Review by clareylou
- Sail Date: September 2011
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
the staff were great really friendly and happy to assist at all times the ship was spotlessly clean the food excellent we did freedom dining which thoroughly enjoyed as we always shared a table and met different people each night. the entertainment a little flat however tribute to elton john and cher was brilliant. bit disappointed with casablanca quite glad we chose not to get off to be honest and i have the feeling a fair few of the passengers were a little disappointed, not the captains fault just a poor country and due to costa being on the berth and us being so big we were put on a container berth which was very oily and dirty on the ground. this day azura proved how clean she was as because of the oil and dirt they clingfilmed all the walkways to keep the carpets clean.
We had an outside cabin and it was ideal as to be honest you dont spend much time in it, our cabin steward was really helpful and friendly and a hard worker
if i had to make one little moan I would of liked to spend longer in gibralter really liked that place. and the photographs on the ship got a little annoying lol kept pouncing and they were not cheap to buy however did buy the formal portraits as a memento.
I am really keen to go on Azura again and plan on doing it in 2013 we have booked a two week italian med cruise in aug with the oposistion lol ind of the seas as the itinery was slightly better than P and O for next year and I dont want to go on anything smaller than Azura lol but trust me My hubby and I will be back on Azura for a cruise in 2013 I have told all my friends that they are never to fly again and go cruising so relaxing dont have to think about anything and totally hassle free. Well done Azura.

LisbonWe did the tram tour which was very good its half a day and very interesting go around the old town of lisbon and its so sad to see it so run down and graffitti on every building, you get given a glass of port and portugese pastry and then back on the coach and taken around the wealthy side of lisbon sight seeing back to the ship which leaves you half a day to do what you wish.View All 683 Lisbon Cruise Port Reviews

VigoWe didnt do a tour we got off and walked up to the town and looked at the oyster market which was good. vigo is very hilly and lots of steps not brilliant for disabled but worth a visit. oh by the way the man playing a violin as you come out of the customs building is hungarian so we were told and not spanish lolView All 399 Vigo Cruise Port Reviews
