Loublou | January 5, 2019 | P&O Cruises | Azura
We had no idea this would be a school holiday cruise, our kids weren’t off so when there were almost 500 kids on board we were a little disappointed. Couldn’t get anywhere near the pools you can sit around and the venues and restaurants were kept busy til around midnight with kids. Not a real problem but different to usual and it would have been nice if it was sold as a school holiday cruise so we had a choice. Half the ship was quarantined with stomach bugs from day 1 so must have been brought onboard.
Football still overruled any other entertainment but luckily there were only about 10 games during the 2 weeks.
We have only done about 8 cruises but we already know what food to expect and when which gets boring and the entertainment needs something new thrown in.
Staff were all lovely and the ship has a very easy layout with plenty of bars etc. Ultimately it was all ok and we had a fabulously calm sea for all 13 nights.
Will book again.
