Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1 Southampton
2-3 At Sea - 2 days
4 Cadiz
Cadiz
From the splendour of its harbour, to streets full of Moorish relics, Cadiz is the perfect introduction to the beauty of Spain.
5 At Sea
6 Palma, Majorca
Palma, Majorca
Whether it’s lazing on one of the beaches, people watching from a cafe terrace or the fascinating old city that interests you, Palma has it all.
7 At Sea
8 Valletta
Valletta
As you sail into Malta, you are treated to a breathtaking landscape of soaring steeples and church domes.
9 Messina, Sicily
Messina, Sicily
For a show unlike any you've seen before, visit the world's largest astronomical clock, Orologio Astronomico, in the Piazza del Duomo. It's set in a 60 m (197 ft) bell tower and when the clock strikes noon, it comes to life. As Ave Maria begins playing from a loudspeaker, the bronze mechanical figures start to move. A lion roars, a bird flaps its wings and two historical heroines take turns ringing the bell, all before it ends with a statue of Jesus appearing from a tomb.
10 Naples
Naples
Cruising into the Bay of Naples is a memorable experience. The Naples port is overlooked by the imposing Sant Elmo medieval castle, high up on Vemero Hill, as well as the 13th century Castel Nuovo, which is right next to the Naples cruise terminal in the heart of the city. Within a short walk, to the left of the terminal, are three of Naples best-known landmarks: Castel Nuovo, the 17th century Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), and the elaborate 18th century San Carlo Opera House. To reach Naples’ fascinating old town, go straight past Castel Nuovo and then over the Piazza Municipio.
11 Rome (Civitavecchia)
Rome (Civitavecchia)
'The Eternal City' from unforgettable historical sights to exclusive designer shops, Rome really does have it all. Ensure you throw a coin into the Trevi fountain to make certain you'll return.
12 At Sea
13 Cartagena, Spain
14 Gibraltar
Gibraltar
In Gibraltar, take advantage of the incredible views from Europa Point and visit the underground chambers of St Michael's cave- watch out for the Barbary Apes though!
15-17 At Sea - 3 days
18 Southampton

We very much enjoyed our cruise. We were well taken care of at all levels of service. The staff we were in contact with, especially our cabin steward and the Dining room staff were especially caring and pro-active in giving us a good experience, The only disappointment was not getting into Cadiz due to side-winds.

This was our first cruise and we were looking forward to it , the crew were really lovely and the food was first class, we were on the lido deck near the entrance but that was where everyone who smoked sat so we could smell it in our corridor which as a non smokers was not very nice, our cabin though was very comfortable also had lots of storage but the balcony was rather small for two people, we were very disappointed with the entertainment as it was geared to elderly people when we booked the adult only cruise we thought that there would be a good mix of adult ages but found this not to be the case, we went to the disco in masquerades and we were the only ones in there we are a couple in our early sixties and we were not ready for bed at eleven. the only entertainment we enjoyed were the comedian and Graffiti classic who were both excellent, we would not choose to go on this ship again and it has slightly put us off going on another cruise

This was my FIRST cruise on a cruise liner and my previous thoughts of cruising were rather less than pleasant. I have now done two cruises and planning a third. The first was on P&O Aurora. The second on P&O Azura. Now i feel i can offer a review. The Aurora was/is a smaller ship, adult only but by being in that smaller class the staff/crew were rather more attentive to your needs or wants than on the Azura. My partner being a bit disabled. There was someone on hand on the Aurora to assist with carrying the tray from the restaurant to our table every time. Regrettably that didn't happen very often on the Auras. I can only say praise for the food on both ships as you are able to feed from 0600 right through till about 0230 the next day at some point on the ship. For me the entertainment sucked most of the time on both ships with one nights exception of a comedian. I don't have interest in dancing or in the casino and i gave up drinking 40 years ago. But like ive said i am booking a third cruise for 17 or 19 days come September or October 2019.
