A nice experience by sungirl10

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Greek islands well worth a visit. Lots of sea days but we didn’t mind that. Azura our ship was a very busy ship with lots going on so if you are after some peace and quiet forget it. Missed having a retractable roof in the pool area. Seascreen was a waste of time. Bad sound quality.

Absolutely lovely! by ameliaread97

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

A must for anyone wanted to go to Greece and the islands. Everything was good and it was first time on P&O so it was a great first impression of the fleet!

Pros: We had a large... by s24nto

Sail Date: /

Pros: We had a large party with us who stayed in various different room types. All I must say were well proportioned and had good storage space. Cabin stewards were excellent. We had a 2 yr old in the group which attended the Reef Club and they were brilliant with her. Cons: I don't personally like the formal night restrictions, if you have paid to eat in the main dining rooms why should I be forced to the buffet for two nights for not wearing a dinner jacket. Service was slow, 30 mins to get a bottled beer. Generally restaurant staff were dismissive of complaints and unhelpful. Buffet small. Entertainment was repeated and during the day non existent. If the deal was good probably would go back on P&O, however definitely prefer the customer service on RCI.

just returned from short cruise... by patmarlow

Sail Date: /

just returned from short cruise to Amsterdam and Le havre. having cruised before with other companies and read various comments regarding the Azura we went with open mind. there are areas where I think Azura got it right the main one being the shore excursions we were asked to make our own way ashore to meet our courier . what a pleasant change from the throngs of queuing people jostling in the stairways waiting to disembark much better we were told a specific time and left with practically no queuing. number one priority for me are the beds with most companies I have used I have needed extra pillows etc apart from cunard none have been as good as Azura. cabin was well thought out I liked the walk in wardrobe and general roominess of the cabin. Food was nice but did not wow me apart from the epicuran which was amazing. I had two grandchildren with me who found plenty to do and enjoyed most of the entertainment . All in all an enjoyable cruise would book again with P and O good value for money.

Cruise not as expected ..a lot of money for two nights.. by dreambreak

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We would never go on a mini cruise.such a lot of money and advertised as children's school holiday cruise..but not suitable for children. In fact it has put us off cruising for a while..only our second cruise..would not recommend it to anyone..with children .

Fantastic first time on Azura to the Fjords in August. So much like Ventura. Enjoyed every minute of it. Staff very friendly on all decks. Food & entertainment excellent and sights in fjords breathtaking 😊

We had our first cruise... by ruthie1

Sail Date: /

We had our first cruise 12th August to Norway. Absolutely amazing experience and totally hooked on cruising now and deciding on our next one. Our son, 13, has special needs and a wheelchair user. The crew couldn't do enough to help make sure he had everything he needed. Made me feel like I had a holiday, which on return realised I hadn't felt that about previous holidays. Wished we had started cruising sooner! Thank you.

Having travelled on NUMEROUS other... by smithchops

Sail Date: /

Having travelled on NUMEROUS other cruise lines and ships, I was dis-appointed with this ship / P&O. 2 main issues and a 3rd smaller one. 1 - The Buffet restaurants on deck 15 (Verona and Venezia) are just carnage, you can access from both sides, cross over (the other side is the same food, in mirror fashion) and people are walking all over the place, against a one way flow and it's just madness, not a pleasant experience what-so-ever, stay clear - &O you need to sort this out 2 - The staff are polite yes, but warm & friendly, NO !, not a patch on any other cruise I have been on, I complained twice and no follow up, really poor. 3 - I bought the Ice-Cream & Coffee package, only to be told afterwards of all the exclusions / exceptions !, really !, not acceptable. The ship is lovely, clean, modern & spacious with lots of places to go, if you don't mind abrupt staff and chaos in the freestyle dining, you'll have a great time.

A relaxing, good cruise – saw the fjords, ate good food and calm seas! by thepughs

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good value and fun - it is Norway so don't go for the sun - go for the views ..... Azura is a great ship - with a great crew and consistent good food and drink. Itinerary was good and Olden is now a brilliant stop.

Can I go again Please?? by fazackle

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I loved every minute of the cruise, I can't see what's not to like about it. everyone should give it a go. I don't normally do reviews but I wanted to help people who are wheelchair users like me, if I can do it you can.

Middling by gillyhan

Our first cruise and we loved every second of it. 5⭐ treatment from beginning to end. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Would highly recommend. Looking forward to cruising on Brittania next year

Love this ship so much.... by baldylee

Sail Date: /

Love this ship so much. However, I prefer the ventura for only one reason. The indoor pool. The sea screen is good, but not for me. The staff are attentive and fabulous. The presentation is faultless and the ship is spotless. Brodies bar, the planet bar and manhattan bar are exceptional. Well done P&O

This review is from a... by theface1972

Sail Date: /

This review is from a family of 4 (boys aged 12 & 16) who have never cruised before. My parents cruise many times during the year & when we decided to go for it they re recommend Azura as our first ship. They also advised us to do a taster cruise , but we ended up on the 13 nighter around the Med ! Well, in a nutshell it was everything we had hoped & more. We had no comparison as our regular holidays involve all inclusive to the regular Med resorts or in a lodge in Scotland!. So, for any family who is currently undecided about cruising - just go for it !! The ship was great , with a very good "vibe" & we had no complaints with food or service. The facilities & entertainment were excellent. Our boys tried the kids clubs, but opted to just do their own things. We visited great ports & saw the sights - Pisa,FC Barcelona,Monaco & many more. The whole experience is one we will never forget & having two boys of this age means they can appreciate what they have seen & done. All in all a fantastic holiday on a lovely ship & as said earlier........... go for it !

Fabulous Cruise Ship by bribieisland

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

There's no area for comments about the Monte Carlo Port stop. This was a disappointment for us as P&O had mixed up our excurison tickets, and issued two of our party on a different trip. We didn't notice till the day and they couldnt swap it for us. In fact they were rude, said we should have checked. This made it difficult for our party of 6, as two are disabled and needed assistance. We had to split up. Loved Nice though and the guide was excellent.

Guernsey weekend by hampshirehog

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

GOOD POINTS

1. Nice break away with family

2. Great shows

3. Great entertainment (quizzes, karioke, bands etc)

4. Clean ship

5. Decent shops

BAD POINTS

1. Not enough time - should be 3 nights minimum, felt rushed 

2. staff nowhere near as attentive as I have experienced on normal cruises, too much pressure on them 

3. food standards about 50% than the usual excellent fayre on offer

4. tender boats being winched at 7am right outside our room

All in all an enjoyable trip with my family but I feel P&O will lose numerous future customers with these sorts of breaks, so different from the excellent standards we have encountered on previous trips (with other cruise companies btw). 

Will never go on another 2 night break again but would certainly think about a 3 or 4 night trip in future
