Have an unforgettable time on the Azura, one of the largest and most accommodating P&O cruise ships. With eight places to dine, five entertainment venues, a relaxing spa and an array of socialising spots for both adults and children, you won’t regret choosing a holiday on the Azura.
Azura is amongst the largest cruise ships in the P&O fleet, with accommodation for 3,100 passengers. The stylish and contemporary design adds ambience, and the ship itself boasts an enormous variety of bars, haute cuisine restaurants, sports facilities, spa treatments, types of age-specific entertainment and a host of other exciting features.
From inside cabins to palatial suites, you’ll find a cabin for every budget and taste.
Whatever cabin you choose, it will be air-conditioned and spacious, suited to helping you unwind at sea. Many of these rooms open out onto balconies to give you a panoramic ocean view. All accommodation features Egyptian cotton sheets, tea and coffee making facilities, refrigerator, hairdryer, safe for your valuables, in-cabin television and capacious en-suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries.
You will be looked after for the duration of your trip by your own personal cabin steward who are energetic and enthusiastic, and you may even order room service from dawn until late evening at no extra cost.
The three “freedom dining” restaurants on the Azura offer a host of delights - a five-course meal at the Meridian, Peninsular or Oriental at any time between 6pm and 9.30pm, allowing for flexibility as well as culinary adventure.
Casual dining at the family-friendly buffets Venezia and Verona is always a daytime option. The Azura caters to choice and freedom, so the variety of dining options allows you to eat at any time of day. It’s your holiday, after all.
For special occasions or simply for a treat, there’s the chance to visit the Select Dining venues of Sindhu, the first restaurant at sea from Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar; The Epicurean, where a range of British classics has been curated by top chefs; and The Glass House, a wine bar and restaurant created alongside award-winning wine guru Olly Smith.
With evening entertainment such as plays at the theatre, live bands to have a boogie to, and comedy and cabaret performances for a touch of irreverence, you’ll never be bored. And with black tie evenings on board, there’s also the chance to get dressed up to the nines and enjoy a night of subtle elegance the good old-fashioned way.
Feel free to grab a good read from the Azura’s library and escape into another world, or pore through a blend of both famous artists and hand-picked local talent at the Art Gallery. And you’ll find plenty of shopping opportunities, with a variety of designer goods, clothes, jewellery and perfumes and colognes - somewhere will be the perfect souvenir of a trip unlike any other.
Whichever cruise you choose on the Azura, there will be a variety of tours and excursions at the respective ports that will help you make the most of each spot you visit. And if you’d prefer to go and do your own thing on the mainland, staff are always on hand to give friendly and informative advice.
De-stress on the on-board spa, be utterly pampered in the hair and beauty salon, or sweat it out in the sauna or steam room. And for an extra indulgent pleasure, the Retreat is an alfresco spa terrace, exclusively for adults, that caters to those wanting to unwind and bask in nature’s beauty in a breezy cabana.
With activities including yoga, fitness and dance classes, getting in shape can be social and fun as well as good for you - but don’t worry, there’s also a gym for those of you who prefer to go solo. And the Azura has swimming pools exclusively for adults, as well as family-friendly pools, so there’ll be a swimming experience tailored to you and your needs.
With age-specific clubs, a night nursery, a ton of great activities and enthusiastic Reef Rangers on hand, the free on-board programme for ages 2-18, The Reef, is the place to be. Your children will be entertained throughout the day making new friends, having adventures and discovering what’s around them.
The Azura screens family films on an open-air sea screen by the pool, for the ultimate cinematic, panoramic family experience. So you can have plenty of family time, and a touch of grown-up rejuvenating time too. The holiday is totally tailored to you and your family.
