This was our 7th cruise with P&O and 5th time to the caribbean.
We travelled over from leeds to fly from manchester departed from manchester 8-15am by thomas cook airlines.flight took around 9hrs & quite smooth,but i do have to say the inflight entertainment on thomas cook is way out of date on the plane,in fact it was poor.with 3hrs to go to barbados passengers were bored silly,the majority of tv\'s were turned off.
We arrived at barbados at about 1pm local time straight down the plane steps onto the bus onto shed 2 at the port,photo taken scanned onto the ship dropped our hand luggage off in the cabin,up on top ...
deck sat down with a drink 2-45pm spot on.Read More
How did we find the ship AZURA.we have been on her sister ship ventura twice which we liked but we found we liked azura better.
It appeared they had taken great care in furnishing along with the decorating,it was just right throughout the ship.
We were on deck 5 with a picture window in our cabin,nice cabin with enough room for your clothes,we had 2 large suitcases & hand luggage.In cabin entertainment on the tv was ok with live access to your daily onboard account.bed good slept like a log,could have been the drink! we were just outside the atrium floor,not far to walk.
We liked all the bars,with there differing deco\'s. bar staff were friendly with a nice smile.
