Just back from Azura and though I do not wish to write a review, here are some snippets:-
Andersons Gin is no more.
The contract with the Andersons distillery has finished as they could not or would not increase production. Azura had half a bottle left but could not sell it as it was not on the till. A young barman gave me one by mistake so I suppose I had the very last one.
Spirit prices are on the rise. Last July a gin flight was 7.85, in April was 8.85 and last week was 9.95. Though beer and wine had only increased by a smaller amount.
For the 2021/22 summer Ventura will be based in the med with Oceana back based in Southampton.
Cabin next to us had a family in who argued and swore and banged doors during the night and one night father had fist fight with teenage son. Reported to reception who were very concerned and kept phoning us to see if it was still happening. It went quiet then but the last night at 1pm the father threw the boy out in his underpants. He ran off. As this was the last night we let it go but I am sure P &O would have put them off if they had persisted.
Oh yes we were told by a senior officer that they had actually had to handcuff someone fighting on deck 4.
Did not spoil our holiday as we had a great time.
And last but not least, the food was 100% better than on Azura in April. The head chef this time was Andy Yuill. He was on leave in April. Can’t say if this was the reason.
