Darcey Bussell celebrity godmopther to P&O Azura

Date Posted: 05 Jan 2010
Category:
P&O Cruises' new vessel Azura will have former prima ballerina Darcey Bussell as its celebrity godmother during its inauguration later this year.

The former dancer will name the 3,100 passenger ship at a ceremony to be held in the south-east of England port city of Southampton on April 10th 2010, reports the UK Press Association.

Boasting a crew of more than 1,200, the 115,000-tonne cruise ship will feature a variety of amenities including restaurants, a health and beauty spa, a theatre that can seat over 700 people, nightclubs, a cinema and a gym.

The news provider revealed that invitations are being sent to over 1,200 guests and that Ms Bussell, who is now working with Australia's Sydney Dance Company, has chosen the organisation, as well as The Royal Ballet School and the Prince's Rainforests Project as beneficiaries.

After the naming ceremony the ship will embark on a 16-night maiden cruise to the Mediterranean, taking in Malaga, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice.

P&O Cruises is expected to launch Adonia, a small 710-passenger vessel designed for adults only, in 2011.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
