Pictures from Azura

When we were on Azura in September 2015 I took a lot of pictures of the interior of the ship, our cabin, and some of the open decks, with a view to producing a resource page in this blog for Azura. In the event it didn’t come together and the images have been languishing. That […]

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 – […]

Azura underway!

Looking at AIS I can see that Azura is underway – she’s exiting Bergen right now (07:55, 7 May). Her destination is shown as Southampton. Assuming that all is now well with her, she ought to make it back to Southampton by Saturday morning. I’ll try to find out more about the electrical problems that […]

I’ve read that Azura has hit more problems, probably electrical ones. She has diverted to Bergen – AIS shows her berthed there already – and will now not arrive in Southampton until Saturday sometime at the earliest, maybe even Sunday. The next cruise has been delayed until Sunday, and will now only last for 12 […]
