P&O Cruises Azura is a luxury cruise liner with enough facilities and entertainment to make anyone’s holiday feel particularly special. Yet if there’s one group that will love an Azura experience that little bit more, then it’s couples. While kids are more than welcome – not to mention entertained – on-board the Azura, the ship also features those extra special details that make for a fabulous romantic retreat. Here’s a look at what to expect on board this luxury ship from P&O Cruises.
If you’re looking for a couples’ getaway then you can’t look past a trip on Azura. There is an air of old-fashioned Hollywood romance as soon as you step on board, with three magnificent decks and countless dance floors. Culture lovers will be pleased by the on-board library, bookshops and art gallery, while fine diners should schedule in a visit for each of the cafes and restaurants, not to mention the menu prepared by leading chef Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to ever receive a Michelin star.
There is a dress code on board, so men should be prepared to pack suits and ladies may need to throw in a few different dress options. There’s also an adults-only Retreat sun deck, offering spa treatments both day and night in cabana style luxury. This all complements the diverse range of facilities already on offer around the ship, including over 12 places to drink, 3 pools and the 800-seat theatre offering the latest Broadway and West End shows. Finally, be sure to ignite that old teenage romance by going on a date to the movies – but on board Azura you can expect an extra touch of romance with the SeaScreen, which offers an alfresco cinema experience.
Where to go?
Not everyone has the time to set sail on a cruise lasting for weeks, yet for many holidaymakers a mini cruise holiday simply isn’t long enough! The Azura sets sail to a range of destinations, offering holidays to suit anyone’s itinerary and budget. For people who are a little short on time, the Azura offers a great range of mini cruises. Lasting around 2 or 3 nights, mini cruises venture to locations such as the stunning city of Bruges. If you’re after a more lengthy stay, the Azura also offers a Mediterranean Cruise getaway. Stopping at iconic destinations like Barcelona, Malaga and Valencia, a Mediterranean cruise on board Azura is perfect for sun lovers everywhere.
