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 and a creative menu which will both inspire and delight.
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. 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.
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 absolutely loved this cruise! We cannot thank P&O's staff enough for a fabulous fortnight on board P&O Azura. Our only complaint was the embarkation formalities at Valletta but that was partly our fault as we really should have printed off hard copies of our up to date Covid records before we left, it would have saved so much time and angst trying to view them via the NHS App. Credit to the lady who helped us at the terminal in Valletta. The Jet 2 flight was well organised and more or less on time which was a great relief as we have had nightmare experiences on previous flights. Once on board we quickly found our way around the ship and downloaded the "My Holiday" app although it only worked for the first few days! After that we gave up faffing around with it and went to the venues in person to book things. The food in the MDR's was excellent although it could have been a little warmer. The Beach House and Glass House venues were absolutely fantastic serving superb food in very relaxing environments. The entertainment was brilliant. Especially the 2022 Britain's Got Talent runner up Tom Ball and The Voice contestant Stephanie Webber they both have wonderful singing voices. The entertainments team Band Pulse were very good, and the Comedian Tucker had us in stitches although we had seen him before on a previous cruise. The excursions were very well organised although a tad tiring in Florence and Rome, but we saw everything we wanted to see. Captain Turnbull's announcements were very informative and amusing. I particularly enjoyed his Faux Pas with the word "Ship" on one of them, I nearly fell out of bed laughing. Once again a big thank you to P&O and Iglu for everything.
Other than the shows which we really did not much of although the comedian was good we thought it was a good cruise
Lovely ship and really friendly staff.
Fabulous cruise on a lovely if slightly ageing ship. But there are some very smart up to date bars which have recently been refurbished ie Planet and Glass house bars. P&O have had to cut costs and service was rather slow in the restaurant possibly due to staff cuts and absence of a somelier. Also no turn down service at night, but not of particular concern. Very efficient travelling arrangements. Good value for money.
