Sailed on Azura in Feb. We enjoyed a wonderful holiday with great table companions who helped our dining experience to be a relaxing and enjoyable time. Special mention must go to waiters in the Glass House, especially at the wine tasting event. We also ate in the Indian restaurant, which was a treat.
Would have liked to have spent a. Day in the retreat but unfortunately fully booked on arrival.
Disappointed with most of the Headliners shows, got better towards the end of cruise. Star guests were much better, ventrilaquist very funny!
Very easy to get around on shore. Did one trip on st vincents, which was well organised with a lovely lunch included.
Cabin steward was a star, nothing too much trouble, and always had a friendly smile. Next time we would upgrade to a balcony, especially in the Caribbean where it is pleasant enough to sit outside in the early evening. People were complaining however about neighbours spoiling the experience by smoking, with unpleasant smoke drifting across to theirs. Something I think p& o need to think seriously about as it seems very unfair. There was also smoking allowed on one side of the Breakers Bar which made it unpleasant for those who could only find a seat in the middle.
The British sail away sing song was hilarious, not sure the German ship berthed next to us thought so, but they did seem to join in the spirit of it, even the captain replying with his horn blasts!
Still a problem with people reserving sun beds on sea days, some people never appeared until the afternoon or would disappear for about 4 hours before returning. However, we always managed to find two. There was always plenty to do on days at sea. The guest speaker entertained us with tales of London bank robbers. One of our table companions even joined a ships choir, and the Salsa dancing was very amusing. Enjoyed the shuffle board competitions, having never played before!
Looking forward to our next trip.
|Quality of Food|
|Eat mostly in the peninsular restaurant, club dining, average food for cruise ship|
|Headliners disappointing compared with another cruise line we have sailed with. Ventriloquist was very entertaining as was queen tribute act.|
|Day trip on st vincents to waterfall, lovely tour guides, great lunch on the coast, rum punch, as always, on the boat back. Swim stop was a disaster, sea far too rough!|
|Cabin steward, always friendly and nothing was too much trouble.|
