Azura 'will offer the best in cruising'

Article content

25 November 2009

P&O Cruises has announced that its Azura liner will be the company's "most sophisticated" offering yet.

According to the organisation, the 115,000-tonne ship has appointed world-class ballerina Darcey Bussell as its godmother in recognition of this.

Managing director Carol Marlow said: "Azura will offer the service, quality and entertainment associated with cruising at its very best and … dance will play a key part in this."

The cruise ship is due to be officially named on 10 April 2010, with more than 1,200 invited guests expected in attendance prior to its 16-night maiden voyage to the Central Mediterranean.

Set to hold 3,100 passengers and 1,226 crew members, Azura has a health and beauty spa, a cinema, a dance floor, a range of sports facilities and ten restaurants.

Earlier this month, P&O Cruises revealed that its Pacific Jewel superliner will be opening a chocolate café onboard, with Belgian waffles and warm chocolate fondant among the treats available.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19479159-ADNFCR
