Cruise Review by Cruiser90756951

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My favourite parts of the cruise were the food, formal nights and the entertainment. The part that can be improved is to stop the harassment of the guest by trying to sell the ships services like timeshare, it was like being in Spain with timeshare people stopping you everywhere you went. I would not recommend this cruise or P & O to anyone as they seem to have lost the plot and are concentrating on sales to boost profits and less on the passengers.

Enjoyable but no WOW factor by Cruiser67918435

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Poor weather meant that this holiday did not meet our expectations.  This was our first cruise so we have nothing to judge it by, but whilst the facilities on the Azura are excellent, as is the food, the entertainment was very hit and miss.  We appreciate that you cannot please all the people all the time but too often it seemed to be aimed at the lowest common denominator... too loud, too inane, so intrusive if you were trying to relax.  Perhaps we were the wrong people for this type of cruise.  We won't be back.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: we went in November but your survey doesn't show this option.

Rooms by Cruiser1095459

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Rooms:very dissappointed after booking 2 rooms next to each other, agent told us they were. When we arrived we were in fact not together room p217 & p218 was around the other side of the boat. As the boat was full capacity we were unable to move!!!

we did not have correct luggage labels for 218 after asking numerous times, we had to change them ourselves!! Luckily there cases did not go missing. But we cannot fault P & O ,but as this was our first cruise not a very good start ! Due to the agent 118 cruise.com

Enjoyable by Cruiser94466626

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My favourite part of the cruise was the itinerary. The weather and conditions of the sea were great.

The food could be further improved. Fish was always overcooked.

Too many people on board sounded ill, with there constant coughing.

A great ship with good entertainment and facilities.

Too many reviews. This is the 4th.

Dissappointedh by Cruiser51219898

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

For us there were too many passengers for the entertainment venues. Some passengers sat in the theatre reading their book in order to get a seat for the show. Also the ship was very very cold due to the air con, we both came home with colds. Would not cruise with P&O again.

Cutbacks by Cruiser22889897

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

we we're disappointed this time on the Azura.. The cutbacks are very evident. Health and hygiene didn't appear priority. Towels on deck stopped but the worst disappointment was in the theatre with acts being duplicated. It has certainly put us off P&O Cruise Ships. Even in the cabin no towel animals. Little personal touches that you had on previous cruises were missing. Overall very disappointed with the Cruise Ship. Even the Entertainments Manager didn't seem to have the Zest we experienced on previous cruises with Azura. The best about the cruise was the amazing weather which was not down to the Cruiseline.

OUR FIRST CRUISE - IT WON'T BE OUR LAST by Cruiser63818491

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We loved our trip to the Monet Gardens.  Just a perfect day for us both - surprised me as my husband is not a gardener or an artist - but he found it relaxing and interesting. The lady tour guide was so informative and so good with us all.

We had problems with our hop on hop off bus and boat trip though yourselves,  but you have kindly offered us a refund of the cost.  Hopefully you will take steps to correct this.

If we did Amsterdam again we would opt for the P&O windmill tour.  Still we had fun and gave us a laughable time to talk about.  We thought the Ship was good.  My husband has resisted a cruise holiday until now - having done his first one - he wants to go again.

Greece adventure by f1cruiser

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise we have waited a long time for and it was well worth the wait third time on Azura and each time we love her more the cabin was clean albeit a little tired in places 

crew are some of the best on P&O, food was excellent, freedom dining was again easy to do we had the same table every night we had a buzzer went for drinks and usually within twenty mins our table was ready reason for same table was location and Manal the waiter was fantastic

The Greek islands where above our expectations just stunning we loved every second special mention Capt Camby was the best capt we have ever met funny and very approachable and I'm told by my wife very nice eye candy

Butlins on a boat! by Cruiser14740133

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Quick efficient check in and the cabin was excellent. The food was also of a high standard but that is all I can say about this cruise. We have never cruised before and after this experience, we never will again. I do not want to be serenaded by yellow or blue coats singing "Sailing" as we leave port. It was all so Butlins. I was almost expecting staff to say Hi di Hi to us. Truly awful.The buffet was like a scrum down with greedy people piling up their plates with food they couldn't possibly eat.

we decided to have our breakfast served to us, which was far more civilised that walking round with a tray of food trying to find somewhere to sit.

water in the cabins should be free and not charged. For what we paid, it should be free and is very mean of P&O.

like many people, we asked for a refund immediately as we thought that we will decided who and when to tip and not be dictated to. We weren't even told that my credit card had been debited. Cheek!

 

the entertainment was sub standard and more akin to a holiday camp. The daytime activities were a joke and thoroughly boring.

 

Our first and our last ever cruise! Never again!

Good Cruise by Cruiser72548965

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Good itinerary, allocated flexible dining which suited us.

Weather not too bad though very little sun until Bilbao.

Nice ship, though lacks a little character perhaps because of its size.

All facilities good though seemed to be somewhat understaffed in open deck areas. All round though a very good cruise.

Somewhat disappointed with cabin allocations as we booked two cabins & were allocated C100 & C101, which we assumed to be adjacent, in fact one is port & the other on the starboard side of the ship - miles away! Not useful when looking after elderly relatives.

Amazing by DragonGran

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

this was a wonderful relaxing cruise with magnificent scenery. Excursions are well worth the little extra to see Norway in all its beauty.

The cruise was nice but... by B14NRD

Sail Date: /

The cruise was nice but didn't feel special. It felt like you had just gone to a nice hotel, not an amazing cruise ship. It never felt like anyone ever went that extra mile to make it special. Great captain on board though. We had bad weather and he done his upmost to try keep it as minimal as possible.

Sail Date: /

Excellent cruise from start to finish, staff are very friendly, ship is kept spotless and our daughter loved the kids club. The food in the Meridian restaurant was AMAZING so we didn’t eat at any of the specialty restaurants. Really enjoyed Brodie’s as it had a nice atmosphere.

Sail Date: /

Overall a great ship - lots of different spaces to explore, a great entertainment team, good food and the shows were good quality. The cabin (C710) was nice but a little tired...i think it is due a refit though. It is our first P&O cruise and overall had a really great cruise to the Norwegian Fjords on Azura.

It's interesting to note that... by BudgieMama

Sail Date: /

It's interesting to note that we feel like we've had a great cruise despite P&O rather than because of them. Azura is a nice enough ship, although we found the layout unhelpful and in places poorly designed, and signage lacking meaning even after a week we still didn't have our bearings. Didn't feel shabby, but did feel under staffed. Also encountered an outright rude staff member (first for us on a cruise) and had issues with our bills which weren't resolved before we had to disembark. Cabin (inside) was decent size, layout and condition, and we had a good steward. The Norwegian Fjords were wonderful, and we're so glad we've been, but won't be sailing to P&O in the future.

Had a wonderful time and... by EllieT79

Sail Date: /

Had a wonderful time and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had assistance getting on and off the ship, the gentlemen made the whole thing easy. Food was delicious on the whole, we mostly ate in the Peninsula. We did have meals at the glasshouse and the beach hut, both of which I would have happily visited a 4th and 5th time! Our steward, Heston was a star! Ship was a little confusing and we did keep getting lost but hey ho! Ship is a little dated but clean. Entertainment was great, something for everyone.

Mediterranean cruise by saucysue

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I was dismayed on embarkation, as there were far more children than I am used to, but they were, on reflection, mostly well behaved. Having paid a large single supplement, was horrified to hear that it was only £1 for children to travel!!!

Sail Date: /

Too many quizzes, no rules enforced (kids in adults pools), no service on pool deck (offered a drink twice during entire cruise), buffet is rubbish! First and last cruise with p and o..... Like a trip to benidorm on a boat!
