Azura 2015 – Review

I’ve done my usual post-cruise Review page. Not only does it hold the review, but also links to all the individual posts. You can find it here; but I’ve copied the text of the review itself into this post.   “Now for the review. The ‘executive summary’ would be as follows:- This was our most […]

Azura 2015 – back home

So we’re back home. We self-disembarked Azura at 7:30 this morning. This seemed hard this time; we had more stuff than ever before and it was a bit of a struggle. Perhaps we’ll reconsider doing it this way for future cruises. Although next year’s cruise will be easier, as it will be for just 7 […]

Azura 2015 – last day

So it’s the last day of the cruise, and we already feel as if it’s over. It’s just before 1pm as I write this. We’ve sorted out our clothes for the rest of today and tomorrow, we’ve packed, and there’ll just be the last scurry round the cabin in the morning to make sure we […]

Azura 2015 – Cadiz

Yesterday we were in Cadiz, our first visit there. It was after 9 o’clock before we berthed so we had a good view of the city as we sailed in. I hadn’t grasped Cadiz’s location before – concentrated on the tip of a peninsula and almost completely surrounded by the sea. On the way I’d […]

Azura 2015 – update on a sea day

We ate in the main dining room last night for the formal night. We both enjoyed the food – as it happened, we both chose a chicken soup for starter and roast lamb slices for the main course – but we found ourselves with somewhat less congenial table companions than on other nights. Never mind, […]

We had another meal in Sindhu last night. Pretty much as good as the previous one – if there was any negative it would be that my Traditional Rogan Josh wasn’t as spectacular as the main course I had before; somewhat nearer what I might get in an ordinary UK curry restaurant than is usual […]

Azura 2015 – Ajaccio

Today we were in Ajaccio on Corsica and therefore in France. Passengers were being tendered ashore, which was a bit of a surprise – the last time we were here, two years ago on Ventura, we berthed. However having got ashore from the tender we discovered the reason – the single cruise berth was occupied […]

Last night’s meal in The Epicurean was more more enjoyable than our first. Perhaps it was because we preferred the choices on the menu (different menu last night – there are two, which they switch every few days), or maybe we were more relaxed. I won’t go through the full details of our menu choices, […]

Azura 2015 – Civitavecchia

On return from the Cinque Terre excursion yesterday we were too tired to contemplate eating in the dining room, so we made ourselves presentable and went to the Glasshouse for a couple of their small steaks and some of their excellent wine. It was a lovely meal, and we enjoyed being to relax with each […]

Today we did a full-day excursion to the Cinque Terre region in Liguria. After the port change from La Spezia to Livorno there was some question as to whether it would go ahead (Livorno being much further away from the Cinque Terre than La Spezia) but it did, albeit making for a longer day – […]
