Ship Facts: Azura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azura Deck Plans
Azura - British Isles
had high expectations of this ship, but sadly we were dissapointed in the main.

for us one of the cruise experience highlights is the food/wine in the evening & we were badly let down by so-called award-winnig chefs who couldn't win much for the 3 star food with proper wine list only provided on last night!

Token Veg with main course & potatoes in addition to potatoes done differently to add. 5 a day not easy on the azura! In the main dry British food with no sauces hardly (i can get this at home) expected special food but just run of the mill staples with some meat & a few fish options - bread potatoes & ice cream - (that'll fill em up!)

so off we went i night to try the " Italian" restaurant alternative.Like the rest of ship staff were Indian so had heard good report of this secret option

Ital;ian food by Indian staff? Well Brushetta was basically Cheese on toast I asked for Spaghetti Pescatore but waiter did not understand this so when I said with seaffod it worked - the ish was creamy & very little seafood & not nice so asked for alternative - Napolita just Tomato sauce mmm a child may be happy with this?? but we expected more!

Entertainment mainly 2 comedians taking rise out of front row audience was quite funny as long as it wasn't you in the hot seat!

Young dancers theme nights very good

The free shuttle buses to the destination ports were good

Cabin Steward exceptional from Goa thing is he left when we did for a better offer? from Royal Carribean, a wise man!

Cabin Toilet faulty flushing experience awaiting P & O response on this & hope they cure the fault for future passengers soon.




Overall a 3 star experience

the food being particularly poor spoilt it for us compared with Princess food

this was not great/

Sam old films showing & timing of films inside not right for inclement weather hardly anything to do quizzes were low on the ground. more Entertainment direction & forethought needed. Get tips from the Cruse director/staff on Independence they were funny themselves AND kept you occupied!
