Darcey Bussell to become Godmother to P&O's Azura

Date Posted: 27 Nov 2009
Category:
The latest addition to P&O's cruise fleet, the 115,000-ton Azura, will host one of the world's best-loved ballerinas during its glittering naming ceremony.

Darcey Bussell will be Godmother to Azura when the ceremony takes place on the vessel's top deck in Southampton Docks on April 10th ahead of her maiden Mediterranean cruise.

Carol Marlow, P&O Cruises' managing director, said that Ms Bussell "epitomises glamour, sophistication and elegance", qualities that Azura hopes to achieve.

"Azura will offer the service, quality and entertainment associated with cruising at its very best and as dance will play a key part in this, it is entirely fitting for Darcey to give Azura the best possible start in life," she commented.

More than 1,200 invited guests will attend the naming ceremony before Azura sails to Malaga, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice.

The superliner, which can accommodate 3,100 passengers, features a dance floor in its atrium, ten restaurants and a state-of-the-art health and beauty spa.

One of Azura's highlights promises to be her Sindhu restaurant, which is run by Michelin star-winning chef Atul Kochhar.

"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...”
