Wonderful Caribbean cruise
Elizabeth Burton | February 6, 2018 | P&O Cruises | Azura
Having read previous reviews about the easy flight and embarkation on P and O’s Caribbean fly cruises starting from Barbados, we were delighted to find that all was true. Flying Thomas Cook charter from Manchester was stress free and after leaving our cases at check in we did not see them again until they appeared in our cabins. Coming home was even easier with a designated P and O line that went direct to security and all paper work done on board ship with documents delivered to our cabin on the penultimate day. All flights arrived early. Although we could see that Azura was not quite as pristine as she was,the standard of cleanliness was perfect and our cabin immaculate. We read comments about food but we had nearly all meals for breakfast and dinner in the club dining rooms of Oriental and Peninsular. The quality of food was wonderful with a great selection, beautifully served, hot, and with good quality ingredients. In particular the Marco Pierre White menu for a gala dinner was as good as in any top restaurant. There have been comments about some staff being long faced but we never encountered any such problems. We were on holiday so greeted all staff with a smile and always received one back in return. Our waiters at dinner were charming with a good sense of humour. All in all the cruise was everything we had wished for, ( it was our fifth cruise ) and the weather was lovely except for one sea day. The itinerary was extensive with great variety of destinations and plenty to see on shore.
Sail aways were fun and on Grand Turk we berthed alongside Royal Princess and when she departed there was an entertaining exchange of tooting and flag waving.. Well done to the crew and their captain for making our holiday so special.
It was brilliant to be at sea and sunshine once again, despite all the horrendous form filling, PCR tests, etc.… Read more
