Created with families in mind and one of the larger cruise ships, P&O Cruises' Azura combines child-friendly areas and activities with adult-only sections and facilities. For younger guests, there is a kids' club catering for kids from age two to teens, dining options to suit families, and cabins with space for extra beds, while for Mum and Dad there is a great choice of restaurants and bars, a spa, a cinema, and entertainment day and night.
When you want to test the land, there are plenty of excursions well suited to families, including trips to the beach, waterpark and themeparks, and tours around the cities where the ship docks. Depending on the cruise you opt for, destinations include Spain, Portugal, the Canaries, Norway and the Caribbean. Included in your cruise holiday price are en-suite accommodation, flights (where applicable), dining (not drinks) and entertainment.
Most Azura cruises set sail from Southampton and cruise around the Med, including Spain, Italy and Portugal, the Baltic regions, the Norwegian fjords and the Caribbean. To find out more about the destinations, routes and timetables, please contact us direct.
