Very disappointing, ship tired and staff very lacklustre, not one member of staff went that extra mile, Hygiene not enforced at all surprising considering that they had noro virus a few weeks before. Entertainment team non existent, buffet food appalling, dining room just satisfactory, poor service and no interaction, served as if we were in a fast food establishment. We had an issue with over charging so went to Customer relations to sort out, assistant started to deal with our problem then just answered the telephone whilst we were in the middle of a conversation when I pointed out that this was rude he replied that it was a medical emergency, but surely these calls should be taken in private, I don’t think it’s very professional as I heard all the details of the illness and their room number. Guest were cross between benefit street and Butlins, unfortunately P & O have lowered their prices so this has resulted in dropped standards in all areas. If you like Benidorm then this is for you, but personally I will rather spend more and go on Celebrity or Azamara. We found it quite amusing that our room steward hardly spoke to us at all for the entire cruise, but on disembarkation he was hovering around no doubt expecting a tip, which we would have gladly given if we had any form of service from him. Disembarkation an actual farce, we chose to take off our own luggage but they couldn’t even get the right deck number to exit some we’re saying deck 6 whilst our paperwork said deck 5! Wouldn’t rush to book another P & O cruise unless I was desperate for a cheap no frills get away. Read Less

I'm on the same "eventful" cruise Mr. Unknown had been (previous review). Key points to address: 1. Nearly no cruise ship has a helicopter pad - airlifting is standard procedure, as is evacuating rooms / restricting balcony access. This was all done in strict accordance with safety procedures, and I have to say the crew did this well despite inconvenience this might cause. 2. We did have quite strong rolling due to strong winds and sea conditions. The captain altered course to avoid the worst of the weather, but he can't control the weather. An unsteady ship in strong weather conditions, along with all the creaking and banging waves are inherent risk of sea travel. I felt as safe as can be given the circumstances (which wasn't at all outside of crew's ability). Some might have argued that the ship should just not sail instead, but if that happened, I guarantee you there would be complaints that we skipped destinations / was stuck somewhere. As regards to some other reviews: It's not a luxury cruise with servants, but has all the amenities for a pleasant journey. If you feel like you can't stand the poor or indeed the wider society, do spend more on a smaller boat or purchase your own yacht. There's no complaints from me for the fellow passengers - you can be perfectly left in peace. Out of thousands of guests onboard, hardly anyone has left me a outrageously poor impression. There definitely are a good number of passengers who just love a moan (indeed, it is the British national sport). Heard about a man who had to leave his cabin when the helicopter came in as standard procedure, and he thought he's entitled to a personal apology from the captain! Service on-board was adequate. My restaurant waiter had engaged in great conversation and was quite friendly (1/2). I don't expect them all to do so (although quite a number do), as other passengers might not understand they work 11 hour shifts a day often every day, serving multiple tables waiting for their food. It's unreasonable to expect them to be available at your leisure. Overall the restaurant is what I expect of a good restaurant, and the food was great. Cabin service had also been good, with our steward making up our cabin multiple times a day. Zero complaints about cleanliness. No he did not loiter around waiting for tips at the end of the trip. And no, I don't expect him to be my private butler. Embarkation and disembarkation were both decently good. Not a huge time to wait. Disembarkation was actually ahead of schedule. It was held within different venues (which are often on deck 6), and then we were lead to deck 5 (I think) to disembark. The instructions were not misleading as I recall. As to entertainment and enrichment activities - I'm speaking as a 20 something having lived in other countries. When I see the programs I can see how they are tailored to the demographics they had on board - old and very British. The music acts were all trying to pay homage to artists that once were a big thing, the comedy bringing up British TV celebrities that have been in the business for decades and now largely irrelevant (for me). I don't blame P&O for giving customers what they want, but of course, would hope for some more. Gym is decent. You could do most things. Would benefit from at least a pull-up bar for back. Weights can be limiting when it goes up only to 22kg, but then again with no foam flooring, so no dropping of weights, it might be the wise choice. Enjoyed the free fitness classes this time (last cruise Sep 2018, the PTs weren't very good). Plenty of public rooms / spaces you could hang out at. I had an inside cabin, and planned to be out of the room except when sleeping. That plan came to fruition as much was on offer. Sauna, steam room, gym, dining, etc. If weather was warmer, the swimming and lounging would have been great. I went to the sauna almost every day before bed, and nearly never anyone there. My own real complaint - it might not be apparent to the passengers on board but there were a lot of aggressive sales tactics for the spa / retail sections. If you go for a haircut, be warned they'll also try to sell you shampoo, conditioner, and whatever else. They do so aggressively by saying "I'll put this in your bag" by default, instead of asking if you would like to purchase. The spa / wellness is also exempt from the new no tip required policy - a 10% service charge is added by default, and they will not tell you this is optional or ask how much you would like to give. Further, they've got a number of seminar type events where they'd spew out even more fake science, the type I'd think the elderly would easily believe by the young immediately see through. Lastly, not entirely sure if this true, but the biggest sales events are always held on sea days when you probably have no internet and do a price check. Quite predatory in my opinion. The ship is starting to show its age - a refurb might be needed. You can see some of the handrails losing paint from so many guests hands having brushed them. The rust on balconies and window panes. The drab carpets. But overall, this had been a wonderful trip despite the events that were unavoidable and inconvenient. I feel relaxed and refreshed. The food had been great. The views had been great. The lifestyle on board had been great. Service had been great. Though, yes, it's not the private butler lifestyle some other passengers might feel they are entitled to at merely less than £90 a day (inside cabin). For me it's well worth the money. Highly recommended. Read Less

Have travelled on Azura before in Caribbean and Loved that experience. I was disappointed on this cruise. I expected the weather to be grim and knew the ports would be basic. Bearing in mind shops were shut on Sunday in Cherbourg and ciesta in Spain. Disembarking and embarking in Guernsey was an inconvenience, having to queue for about 40 mins to use the tendor . Getting off and getting back on board . Generally standards have dropped. Even noticed the lower brand of biscuit in the cabin. Used to get a good old hob nob, now a Marie biscuit. ....Maybe because lack of staff, the buffet tables need to be cleared quicker. Often walked around looking for a table to sit at. Buffet food very basic. Only ate breakfast there and found that not very appetising. Peninsular restaurant on the other hand, very good. .... Cabin was depressing due to complete view of lifeboat taking up all off the view, would have preferred an inside cabin. No complaints regarding our steward Rex who was always accommodating. Entertainment was pretty good. Not sure I’m happy with the dance area around the shops and costa, continually being used for classes. Would be nice to have a bit of free style dancing there as well. Personally I will try another cruise line now to compare. Which is disappointing as up until this holiday I could only have praised P&O for ensuring an enjoyable experience. Read Less

I liked the size of the ship , not too big, embarkation was much faster (10 min queue) rather than for Britannia (2 hours queue). But the whole ship needs a total refurb , all the chairs and sofas are incredibly low, some almost impossible to get out of, in the dining rooms you felt like a child sitting at the tables and a lot of people made the same comment. Our superior balcony was quite spacious with a sofa which could become a sofa bed and tables and chairs, 2 , 24” flat screens TVs one facing the bedroom the other facing the sitting room, limited shows and movies and sometime didn’t work due to poor signal. We had a bath and dressing gowns and slippers they provide basic toiletries and there is a small fridge which you pay if you use anything in it. We got complimentary :a bottle of champagne, a bowl of fruit, a box of chocolate, 2 small sparking and one large plain bottled water. There is a kettle , tea , coffee and milk sashes which they renew every day, you also have a turned down service in the evenings, which they clear up any rubbish replace used mugs, glasses and open the bed with a small chocolate on the bed for each. There is only 2 UK sockets ( plus one for the kettle) and one American socket .I phoned up before departure to ask what kind of sockets they use & was told European & Uk. But no European in the cabin and funny enough the hairdryer ‘s plug is American ! The queue for breakfast is massive and no where to sit, so we ordered free of charge room service breakfast, which was sufficient and if you look on line it includes sliced cheese & meat but NO IT DOESN’T. Food is generally just acceptable not as good as Cunard. I has a very good shoulder, neck & back massage twice at the Oasis spa. 50 min of absolute bliss for £72 each session, the second one I had as a couple massage with my husband which we paid on the day we booked 3 days before but they charged us again on the day too and it took us a lot of explanation, back and forth to the spa and reception to get e refund. It ruined the experience. There is The Oasis swimming pool for adults only, if you look on line it says it has a currant that you swim against , but no it doesn’t and thank goodness. However it is not heated and I was only able to use it when it was a warm sunny day which was only one day during the whole 7 day cruise and on the last port day (Fri) the pool was closed and empty of water. Very disappointing there are 2 jacuzzis on either side of the pool but they didn’t work one day as they were doing maintenance why they couldn’t do that during the night god knows ! There is a sauna and steam room as well which have good temperatures. Evening entertainment is very basic and mainly comedy , Madonna tribute was in a bar with limited stage background and she was out of tune.the last evening they showed “Astonishing” which we saw on the Britannia last year, we thought they would change it , but unfortunately it was exactly the same magic show with exactly the same tricks, very disappointing. On the 5th night the Captain announced that the is sea a bit rough on the Bay of Bisque and he was going to detour to avoid it, but it could still be a bumpy ride so hold on to the handle bars and be careful. A Bumpy Ride?!! The whole ship was rocking from side to side then from the front the back making awful sounds as if it was falling apart it started at 10 pm and became worse from mid night to 4pm the next day. But still very very unstable even after that with huge 10 metre high waves hitting the side of the ship. It was a very uneasy experience and we felt very unsafe. Another night we were woken up by the Captain at 5.30 am to say there was a very unwell passenger who had to be helicoptered to a hospital in France , he asked us to stay in our cabins and not even go on our balconies, but we saw it from our patio door coming towards the ship & leaving , later on we found out there is no helicopter pad on the ship so the patient had to be lifted up to the helicopter by a cable ! Scary . Read Less

This was a last minute decision - booked only a week before departure. We have sailed from Southampton before and this time used CPS to park the car - a very smooth experience when you get to Southampton. No time to look around Southampton upon arrival, straight into the embarkation process, which - in our experience - is always very efficient and enjoyable. You feel as though your holiday has already started before even getting on board. I knew where our cabin was and so we went straight there and it was a pretty decent cabin with a fair balcony - all very adequate for our purposes. The only issue for us was the height of the shower head - we are both tall and so kept banging into it and as it was bolted to the cubicle there was nothing we could do about it. As we were a late booking we had no choice about whether we had first or second sittings for dinner and so we were second - 8.45 on embarkation day and 8.30 thereafter. Frankly too late for us (first sitting was 6.30 I think) and so we dined in the buffet on Deck 15. That was great, lovely food and where we had breakfast and lunch thereafter. We also dined there on our last night so that we had time to get packed afterwards. We looked at the drinks pack and decided that £40 per person per night was ridiculous so we took a litre of gin aboard - you are allowed by P & O but only one 1 litre bottle each and anything you buy after Southampton has to be stored until you leave the ship. They also charge £20 corkage if you bring a litre of wine on board and want to drink it with your dinner! We then had a single glass of wine for dinner for £4.15 each and that was that. We've had drinks packs with other cruise lines and they are fine - and you make use of them! But this was perfectly adequate and we didn't think we'd missed out. We only watched one show - which was very good but after eating at 8.20 and not finishing until after 10, we didn't feel inclined to watch a show if we were off the ship the next day. We used the gym only a couple of times but there isn't much head room on a cross trainer if your 6' 4" tall! We also went on a talk about 'losing weight by eating more' This was run by a chap called Christian De Beer and a very nice chap he was to. This was really an opportunity to see you Elemis detoxing stuff. I agreed that 'we' would go for a test and a talk. Should be £50 each but doing two for £50. My other half decided that she didn't want to do it after all so Christian charged me 'only' £43 ! Interesting - I am suffering from acidosis it seems and need a 21 day detox (Cost about £150) and then 3 months worth of stuff costing, I think, about £80 a month so call it £400 all in. Ever felt you've been had? I have since read that this has been going on on cruises for at least 10 years ands it is worth googling Elemis 21 Day detox for a bit of opinion - it works for some but not for al by any means! I think my other half had the right idea! But I still need to look at my diet and maybe some sort off detox would also make sense - more Googling and eBay required!! Great cabin service - our chap was Sunny and very attentive he was to - great feller. I did a trip to the Omaha beech and St Mere Eglise on Day 1 when we went to Cherbourg but my partner didn't go as she didn't think it would interest her and so, for £60 would have been a waste of money. She had a look around the marina at Cherbourg. We didn't do ships excursions for either La Corunya or Santander but had a good walk around both. Our last destination was Guernsey and we did the excursion to Sark - which was brilliant and reasonable value at £50 each. Mind you the carriage (horse and trap!) trips cost £15 apiece and I saw a cheeseburger for £8! Large coffees cost £3 so not bad. Disembarkation went well. We stayed on Deck 15 until about 30 minutes before our exit time of 9.45 and discovered that everyone had moved out of the meeting place a few minutes before. Thereafter getting off the ship was extremely quick and easy and we found our baggage and then the car! Great !! Read Less

Just returned from the Azura cruise to Cherbourg, La Coruna, Santander and Guernsey A911. The weather was not brilliant but generally not too bad apart from our return crossing on the Bay of Biscay. We had winds of 55 Knots, Waves of 9 Metres and a 5 Metre swell. to say the ship was moving a lot would be a massive understatement. Some people spent the night in the Atrium wrapped in blankets because they were too scared to go to bed. The entertainment on board was superb, apart from one singer in the pulse band. she seemed unable to remember the words to most of the songs without having to keep looking at her tablet/phone and she quite often messed up. Fair play to her for giving it her best shot though. Unfortunately there seemed to be a foul smell of raw sewerage most days and this was especially noticeable during port visits. I think I heard the captain mention something about maintenance being carried out on the water system during the cruise. It was a pretty horrible smell. We had a bit of an issue with our balcony cabin door. Every time we opened it we had a loud whistling coming from the broken seal at the end of the door frame. I did report this to the cabin steward, but it didn't get fixed. Can't say it was that much of a problem though. Our bed was failrly uncomfortable. It was quite hard, but the pillows were very soft. Can't really complain because that combination might suit other people. Just didn't suit us. The standard of food was generally very good, although in the Penninsular MDR the food on the first night was not great, as the days went on, the food standard seemed to improve. On the last night, I think I had the best staek that I had ever eaten. It was lovely and pefectly cooked. The televison was a bit of a waste of time. Very restricted amount of channels and although we didn't intend spending our holiday watching TV, there was the occasional day when we just wanted to chill out in our room and put the TV on. Soon changed our minds about that, because the programmes shown were really old repeats. We decided to use the laundry to clean two loads of washing, but unfortunately after the wash cycle had finished on both, there was a horrible smell of what I can only describe as stale water. We only took two washing pods with us so we were unable to wash them again. We had to wash everything again when we got home. I know we should have gone to make a complaint but decided not to bother as it wasn't the end of the world. I managed to go swimming a couple of times during the cruise, but the pools were really cold. good in one way, because it meant not many people were using them, but it did mean that I didn't feel like staying in there for very long. On the day we visited St Peter Port I decided this would be an ideal time to go for another swim as there would probably be nobody in the pool. I was right. Trouble was, the pool had been emptied, so nobody could use it anyway. Very strange time to empty a pool. I know there seems to be a lot of negatives, but these are just from our experience. I do need to point out that even with these negatives, we still thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and certainly would not let it put us off. We are already looking at booking a cruise for next year, but we might try a different cruise line, just to get a comparison from another line. I do have to say at this point, that I felt the service from all the staff was excellent and my hat goes off to all of them. They work tirelessly to ensure the passengers enjoy the experience. I just hope they get paid a decent wage for the hard work they do. The Embarkation and disembarkation was really smooth and although it does take quite a while to get off the ship during disembarkation, it's really not that bad because you can chill out with a coffee after breakfast and wait for your group to be called. Overall, a lovely holiday. Read Less

We chose the cruise as it was available for my significant birthday was only a week long and sailed from Southampton. We also booked a superior deluxe on the sailing for not much more than a standard balcony. We sailed with my oh’s parents and had a nice time but both and oh’s parents who are exprencied cruisers felt pretty let down by p and o. We felt the food choice in the buffet pretty poor, fairly low quality and very repetitive. Hence we ate breakfast and lunch as much as possible in the oriental or main dining rooms. The evening meal choice was also pretty limited. I don’t eat sea food or fish, and pretty much all that was left in the mains was pretty much your standard British roast dinner fare. Lunchtime service from the waiters was pretty poor and very rushed. The evening entertainment was generally ok but nothing more, but one comedians act Bernie Flint was exclusively geared for a very old audience ( if I could have walked out I would)P and o generally we have found after two cruises lack daytime activities we enjoy, generally we do our own thing. Overall yes the ship is looking a bit tired in places, but is fine. When you do have issues customer service is woeful. We had no working toilet for 14 hours, my ohs parents had a balcony door that wouldn’t close shut. In a very mild storm, this was blowing open in the middle of the night. PandO assured them it would be fixed the next morning, it took a further two days to be repaired. We took a shore excursion from Santander to bilbo to see the Guggenheim and a walking tour of the old town. We only had 50 mins to explore an internationally renowned museum. The guide was very knowledgeable but the day just felt rushed. In summary not sure we would sail p and o again, unless we got an amazing deal. My oh’s parents are worried about service on a cruise with p and o in the autumn on another ship after this experience. Read Less

We have become P & O fans, we like the style of cruising, the mix of formal nights of which there were two, the freedom dining, the choice of menu food, the staff, and great entertainment. We did three organised trips, The best of Amsterdam, Ghent on your own, Saire Valley. The guide on the Best of Amsterdam Robert was the best guide we have ever had which made the trip extraordinarily good. Ghent on our own was very poor with just two hours in Ghent.The Saire Valley trip was ok but again too short. We had two comedians on board the first one Mr Heggarty from Ireland was without doubt the worst comedian we have ever endured, the second comedian Tucker was probably the best comedian we have ever heard. The Headliners were brilliant singers and entertainers. The duo in the planet bar were also very good. Our steward, Irenia kept our cabin spotless and replenished and the only thing about our inside cabin to moan about was the carpet could do with a clean. We dined in the Epicurean menu 2 and thought that the extra cover charge was worthwhile. The service was fantastic. We had all our other meals in the Meridian restaurant where the staff were outstanding and the food including steaks served to perfection. The tender service to St Peter Port Guernsey was pretty painful. We did not take an organised trip but instead took a public transport bus around the Island for just £5 each. I read other reviews before our first trip on Azura and agree with the good reviews, this Ship is the Ship for a very enjoyable cruise Read Less

We chose this cruise as it was one of the few sailing from Southampton during my 60th birthday.I decided to treat ourselves to a suite and having never sailed with P&O didn't know what to expect. I had looked for reviews on this particular room, which only showed one with positive comments, back in 2014. though a more recent review from the room next door C750 showed a less glowing report.I decided to keep the room I had chosen and will give you my honest opinion later. Embarkation went very well. we were able to have a buffet lunch in the Meridian restaurant before our room was ready. We were leaving at the tail end of Storm Hannah, but thankfully our Captain decided to set sell at 9.30pm instead of 5.30 to let the storm ebate. It was still rather choppy, but I had taken some seasickness tablets so was fine. We did have a look at where we had been seated for our select 8.30pm dining in the Oriental restaurant. We were not impressed, as we had been squeezed into a tiny table for two in a corner that even the waiters had trouble to serve you, I think it was table 42. Seeing as we had paid a lot more for a suite, I was not happy.We were unable to do anything about it for the first night, but our butler Elvis put in a request for us to be moved to a better table the following day. We decided to eat in the Epicurium restaurant that first night at 50% less than the usual price ( which was actually offered to everyone for their first night as it wasn't busy). The next day we were given a lovely table. Thank you Elvis. Our experience in the Oriental was really good after that. Our waiters Amitt and Frances were very entertaining and efficient. Thank you boys.Our wine waiter Allan was totally on the ball. He was there ready to fill your glass when it was needed. The Headliners sing and dance and magic troup were really good. They were the only acts that we watched as our 8.30 dining clashed a bit with other acts on the ship. The big productions had shows at 8.30 for first dining and at 10.30 for late dining.There was something on every night in the Playhouse at both these times. We enjoyed visiting Amsterdam and Bruges on our own, though we did pay for the coach to get there from the ship. The canal boat trips are very easy to do on your own and cost 12 euros in Amsterdam ( our guide took us to the best and cheapest cruise boat) and about 15 euros in Bruges, again our guide gave us a map to show us where to get the canal boats. The comments about the sewage smell was true. I felt sorry for the people using the Manhattan bar and the Malabar the first few nights. You knew you were on the Aft end of deck 7 just by the smell! It did disappear after day 3 I think it was, but other areas of the ship suffered as the trip went on. All you had to do was move else where to get away from the smell. it was a big enough ship to do this!! Another comment I have seen about the noise of the Dance instructors in the Atrium and hub of the public areas, was rather annoying when you wanted to shop or have a "quiet" Costa Coffee!!! Disembarkation was fine, though trying to find our suitcases in the terminal was a bit trying. We have sworn to either put a huge big bow on our suitcases so they stand out, or ask if we can take our own luggage!! Lovely holiday and birthday ( I did have a card from the Captain. Thank You.)

We have just returned from our holiday to the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Guernsey on board Azura. This was our very first cruise as a family and we were very much looking forward to the whole experience. However we were sorely disappointed with issues we experienced onboard the Ship. Our shower room floor leaked for three days of the cruise causing a pool of water to the bathroom floor this was only rectified on the third day of the holiday following several calls and a visit to reception. The corridor of our cabin location on deck five often smelled strongly of fumes , if not fumes it was fresh paint or sewage. There was a lot of maintenance being carried out on this corridor during the holiday and a dehumidifier was left on all day and evening outside our cabin causing a lot of noise which i had to contact reception regarding as we were not able to sleep due to this. I understand that this is a working ship and requires maintenance however there seemed to be ongoing issues regarding the sewage systems onboard the ship, during our holiday, we encountered blocked toilets throughout the public areas and a strong smell of sewage was present to the public areas on deck seven especially to the malabar lounge which was noticeable throughout the week both when in port and sailing. The roof to the buffet restaurant was leaking badly all week causing saturation to the carpets in the dining area towards the back of the ship, water was running down the wall and through the ceiling as we were eating. The carpet was absolutely soaked and therefore caused a bad small of damp to a large area of the buffet restaurant which was very unpleasant and we reported to reception staff, they were already aware of the issue. Entertainment on board the ship was dire !!! The Irish so called comedian was awful i believe his name to be Shaun Heggaty, people walked out in droves complaining - Music acts on board pretty unoffensive but nothing really magical. The quiz's and so called entertainment in brodies bar was poor - there does not appear to be much effort put into this by the entertainment staff , The quiz host Pearl was quite rude and condescending to fellow passengers. Azura as a ship was very disappointing she seems shabby, tired and in need of some TLC - we understand she is a working vessel however we left feeling very disappointed in her current state and our first experience of cruising.
