The P&O Azura is the perfect ship for all manner of passengers – families, couples, groups, and seniors. During the school holiday season, there may be many children on board, but out of season the ship is more conducive to couples and singles.
The Azura’s atrium is the heartbeat of this magnificent ship that spans three decks and is the epitome of social gathering places. Inside this atrium is an art gallery, a café, a bookstore, a library, and plenty of shopping opportunities. The glimmering dance floor in the middle of the atrium is busy in the evenings with passengers enjoying the live music.
The Playhouse Theatre not only offers music and dancing as well but also offers three performances a day of Broadway-style shows. For something lighter, passengers can enjoy the Manhattan Bar and its tribute shows and comedy acts.
For meals passengers have the choice of Club dining in one of the three main restaurants. Club dining ensures you have the same table each evening but you can also choose Freedom dining, which means there is no fixed time or seating.
For more casual atmosphere, there is the restaurant and wine bar called the Glass House where the wine connoisseur can sample fine wines by the glass. For a few drinks and pub fare there is Brodie’s pub that comes to life in the evenings with live music and the opportunity to play a number of fun pub games. The Planet Bar is in the most forward part of the Azura. It displays scenic footage from around the world on huge audio-visual screens. In the evenings, you can even enjoy popcorn and a movie on the SeaScreen above the Aqua pool.
The Azura can accommodate 3100 passengers with five different styles of staterooms. There are inside and outside single cabins, balcony cabins, deluxe balcony cabins, and suites. The cabins are designed in neutral colours with light wood furnishings and stylish artwork. As should be expected on a traditional British vessel, each cabin comes with everything you need to make tea or coffee.
All of the suites are spacious and include tubs in each bathroom as well as furniture for the balconies. The suites have comfortable lounge areas and separate bedrooms. There is a spa upgrade, which allows you on to the retreat deck and comes with facials and body massages from the spa as well access to fitness classes.
