The brand new P&O Azura, sister ship of the P&O Ventura, made her maiden voyage on the 12 April 2010 after a stunning naming ceremony by dancer, Darcey Bussell.
This stunning ship has an incredible choice of bars, restaurants, sports facilities and entertainment and carries up to 3,100 passengers, with 900 balcony cabins and 14 passengers decks. This ship offers 11 restaurants, five boutiques, four swimming pools and two lounges and copious amounts of outdoor space where you can relax. There's also an open air cinema.
2 highlights for dining are The Glass House, with wines selected by Olly Smith and Sindhu, a contemporary Indian restaurant, by celebrity chef, Atul Kochhar.
P&O Cruises have really raised the bar with Azura. With the Verona and Venezia restaurants, you'll find the flexibility of freedom dining, meaning you will always be able to sit and enjoy excellent cuisine throughout the day. The poolside grill is also available for an al fresco alternative, as is the poolside pizzeria. In the Sindhu fine dining restaurant, you'll find Indian cuisine with a modern twist, as Michelin Star winner, Atul Kochhar creates a menu which will inspire and delight.
To help wash all these delights down, TV's Olly Smith has helped put together the Glass House Wine bar and restaurant, where you'll be able to enjoy the signature menu, with a different specially selected wine paired with each course. Whether you are new to wine drinking, or a dedicated wine lover, you'll find that with Olly's guidance, the world of fine wines is deliciously easy to navigate.
