Norway in the sun by angelikavienna

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azura

We’ve just disembarked from the Azura and here are a few thoughts. We loved every minute on our Norway cruise. Cabins .... beautiful and ample space , we had a balcony on deck 14 near a pool. Very quiet! Kids on the ship.... lovely and well behaved, a pleasure to be around them, they all seem to love the kids club even the teenagers. Food.... we only ate in the Oriental and peninsular restaurants . Lovely food mostly, Cunard food was nicer, but plenty of choice and good quality. The buffet is busy. Drinks... we had a wine package, that was good value for money, other drinks cost about £ 7 Pools... yes we had gorgeous weather, the oasis pool is quietest. Plenty of sun beds, the retreat, which you have to pay for uses that pool and in my opinion is probably only worth it on a cruise to a very hot climate as there isn’t much shade about. Entertainment.... headliners theatre group were fantastic, west end style shows, other highlights were silk and beats, the one comedian wasn’t so funny Shore excursions.... for some people and some places they might be the best thing to do. In Norway and for us, reasonably able bodied I did think they were a rip-off. For example the Flåm train. £ 98 each with a booked P&O excursion, £ 90 for two people booked directly on the train. There was a lot of scaremongering about missing the ship. Well you are on exactly the same train as the excursion. It’s literally two minutes walk from the ship that’s towering over that tiny village. How could one miss it? Service.... everybody worked so hard and all the waiters and stewards made you feel special. The dress code... we like to dress to impress on a cruise, but you didn’t have to. On the two formal nights everyone did wear evening dresses and dinner suits. I even saw a little boy in one. Those people, who didn’t fancy that, just ate in the buffet. The infamous smell... yes around deck 7 by the Malabar and Sindhu restaurant it was bad. We called it the smellybar. We couldn’t smell it anywhere else and it didn’t bother us, just walked a bit faster through this area. The decor .... some people on this chat claimed the Azura was in desperate need of refurbishment. We didn’t feel that, she’s a beautiful ship ! Embarkation and disembarkation.... very well organised! To sum it up, we had a great time, as we cruised on Cunard before, we weren’t disappointed, but I suppose everything is maybe just one notch up on the QM2. I must emphasise though how much we enjoyed ourselves and as we’re leaving, we are already looking for the next cruise adventure.

Wonderful fjord cruise by Midge57

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Azura / Destination: Scandinavia

Excellent cruise to the fjords of Norway. In three of the destinations we had exceptional sunny weather of between 25 & 27 degrees, with only one stop suffering from rain. The only problem being we had packed for cold weather. All in all though, a brilliant holiday, and thoroughly recommended.

Well worth the money by martinrob66

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azura / Destination: Europe

Definitely recommend. Excellent food in main restaurant. Staff were superb and felt really relaxed at the end, even battling through Southampton and Salisbury on the way home.

Fab cruise! by Karriejay

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azura / Destination: Europe

Overall a great cruise! The staff work incredibly hard, and it would be nice if there were tip collection points in place perhaps now that gratuities are no longer in place. Perhaps in reception at the end of the cruise? There were a few discrepancies in the rules over dress codes, and not all staff seemed to be aware of the rules regarding the drinks package either. There seemed to be a lot of teenagers on this cruise who virtually took over the jacuzzis and pools meaning nobody else could use them, yet nobody challenged this. The pool attendant at one point simply turned away when one teen decided to start bombing into the pool. MInor issues, but irritating just the same!

Ship: Azura

As committed sun and sand cruisers, this was a first for us. A beautiful cruise with amazing scenery and interesting routes through tight fjords. The ship was fun and friendly, would recommend this cruise to all.

This was our first cruise... by peter65

Sail date: /
Ship: Azura

This was our first cruise with P and O and have already booked for Brittania for next July. Only ever having cruised with Royal Caribbean in the past we were a little unsure of what to expect, we shouldn't have worried as we had a wonderful time and being a Strictly Cruise made it even more enjoyable

First ever cruise by PhilPering

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azura

This was our first cruise. I think we're were both a little nervous and didn't know what to expect. Embarkation was so easy we were in Azura before we even realized and sat on deck drinking cocktails. I would sail on this fine lady again without a moments hesitation. Beautiful ship.

Good to be back on board by adyc74

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azura

It was nice to back on a ship after a few years if doing other things. The people we met and the laughs we had will be experiences we will remember. The only downside was 8 sea days which was too much for us.

Great cruise but poor service by coatscl

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Azura / Destination: Scandinavia

Not sure I’d go with P&O again as disappointed with the service. Felt I was constantly being sold photo packages, drinks options or excursions
