Nearly cruise time!

And we’re getting excited. Well, I am, but Val is has been embroiled for two weeks with a vital stage in the project she’s working on. But as soon as that’s finished – hopefully before the cruise starts – she’ll also start getting excited about it, I’m sure. We’ll be on Azura for 14 nights, cruising […]

Yet another very quiet week from me, I’m afraid. However things will improve quite soon – we embark Azura in just over a week’s time for a 14-night cruise to the Western Mediterranean. We booked this in April last year, so we’ve been waiting almost eighteen months; let’s just say that we’re good and ready […]

There has been even more confusion over that excursion to Cinque Terre while we’re on our forthcoming cruise on Azura. (Before I add some details, I had better explain my silence for the last week. I had a short holiday in Scotland; then when I returned there was all the usual ‘unpacking and washing’ palaver, […]

I posted recently about the change of itinerary on our cruise next month. La Spezia is out, replaced by Livorno. Among the effects of this was the cancellation of our pre-booked excursion, “Beautiful Cinque Terre”. Except I’m now told that it isn’t cancelled after all. We heard about the itinerary change from a post on […]

Yesterday a post on the P&O forum on Cruise Critic alerted me to a change in the itinerary of our forthcoming cruise on Azura: out goes La Spezia, instead we’ll call at Livorno. While neither of these ports are great destinations in and of themselves, they give access to rather different areas, and therein lies […]

Where to eat on Formal nights?

We’re on Azura in September, and for the first time we’ll be on Freedom Dining. We intend to eat at a number of locations – probably in the MDR on many/most evenings, probably the Glasshouse, possibly the buffet if all we want is a light snack (our plans include the possibility of a good lunch […]

Another slow week for cruise and cruise-related news, which means that I haven’t posted anything. However, I have been cudgelling the brain cells and I’ve realised that there is something I’d like to know from my readers: what’s the newly-refurbished Mayflower Terminal like? This has some relevance because according to the latest information on the […]

Azura update; and a hiatus….

Azura made it out of Southampton this afternoon – it looks like she got away at about 4 o’clock which was an hour later than expected. I’ve heard that this was due to ‘late arrivals’, which is hard to credit given that they’d had an extra two days to get themselves to Southampton. But she’s […]

Update: Christopher Edgington has posted the following announcement on the P&O Facebook page:- We are pleased to confirm the new itinerary for Azura’s cruise which will leave Southampton on Sunday. Unfortunately we have had to omit Cadiz and Naples but have retained the rest of the ports of call as follows. Sunday May 10 – […]
