To help wash all these tasty treats 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.

Once the sun sets, P&O Azura prepares itself for a night of entertainment, ready to wow guests with its live productions and bars and lounges.
There are great kid's clubs catering for 5 different age groups, from under twos up to 17 year olds and even a baby listening service! There's plenty of outdoor deck space and Mr Bump & Noddy will also be onboard. Most exciting of all is the addition of three bungee trampolines, located on Deck 19 - great fun for anyone aged over 8! There's even a Wii Room with a whole host of different video games just waiting for you to battle it out!
Days onboard P&O Azura is just as exciting and fun-filled as the time you spend exploring the fantastic destinations. With so many activities to choose from, the only stress is deciding where to go next.
Azura offers one of the most relaxing, innovative spas to be found at sea. With the Azura Spa Stateroom packages available as an add on to your cruise why not take full advantage of these fantastic facilities:
The dress code for Azura is a combination of informal and formal. For the informal evenings the dress code is jacket & trousers or country-club for gents and smart casual for the ladies. During formal nights, typically on two evenings during a 7-night cruise and up to four on a 14-night cruise, the dress code is black tie for gentlemen and elegant dresses for ladies. Meanwhile, the dress code for buffet dining on the Azura is casual, perfect for those who don’t feel like donning their glad rags.
We have been on this ship several times as it has a lovely atmosphere. Good facilities and good food.
The cruise itself was lovely. Sadly owing to flight delays the ship didn't sail until after midnight so we weren't able to enjoy the beauty of the Malta sail out and owing to return flights we could not join the post cruise trip as our flight was leaving before the tour got travelers to the airport. The food we had was nice. The self service evening buffet selection choice was very narrow, we used the main dining room on most nights, where the staff looked after our needs so well. We found that there seemed to be a lack of activities going on. especially on port days so nothing much for those who wanted to stay on board. The evening shows were ok but not outstanding compared to other cruises we have done. The late night DJ never spoke a word and seemed to play the same old tunes nightly which were very heavy and thumping in sound! We noticed a good few things that had been cut , presumably on a cost cutting spree.
Azura is a nice ship and super ports of call. Excellent food and service but no bed turn down sevice so no chocolates on the pillow. No ice cream dessert in the buffet. The ship wasn't full and was understaffed so some facilities closed still the cruise was excellent value. We didn't do any activities or excursions but I can't submit without rating so I've chosen average.
Ship ok plenty of space, food a bit lacklustre, Zadar not worth bothering with, good service by all staff, but many corners cut, no evening turndown, entertainment bit amateurish.
