Another ship comes a-calling

Woke up to find another cruise ship had come a-calling today Friday.
It's the Azura, the newest superliner from P & O Cruises.

The Azura

Of course I had to find out more about this new beauty.
This is the 24 night Caribbean Trans Atlantic cruise out of the UK.

Oct 12  - Leave Southampton, Great Britain
Oct 15  - Ponta Delgada, Portugal
Oct 21 -  Antigua, West Indies
Oct 22 - Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Oct 23  - St. Maarten
Oct 24  - St. Lucia, West Indies
Oct 25  - Grenada, West Indies
Oct 26  - Barbados, West Indies
Nov 1  - Madeira, Portugal
Nov 5  - Southampton, Great Britain

Imagine embarking at Southampton in the UK, and cruising all the way to the Caribbean,...that is just one fantabulous trip.

Gathered the following from their website:

"Tempted to leave the cold and wet behind you this winter? We’ve found the perfect tonic in this 24-night cruise with Azura which transports you to powder soft beaches, sparkling waters, swaying palm trees and endless blue skies.
Embarking in Southampton, you’ll first visit Ponta Delgada, largest of the Azores, where you can experience the dramatic beauty of a 15-square-mile extinct volcanic crater with its dazzling lakes, volcanic streams and therapeutic sulphur springs. After a leisurely journey across the Atlantic, it’s on to idyllic Antigua, Tortola, St Maarten, St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados. Each island is different and you’ll find a richly varied range of architecture, cultures and tastes. Discover the lush beauty of the island landscapes, lively markets, exuberant locals, historical sites, fascinating marine life and natural wonders including reefs, waterfalls and tropical gardens.
With a call at Madeira on your way home, you’ll have a full day to wander among the vivid subtropical plants and flowers of this ‘Garden Isle’ and sample its famous wines."

Wow, I don't know about you, but I think a cruise is on my travel radar for next year.


  1. How are you ever going to find the time to do all the things you are planning for next year Virginia? I've never had an urge to go on a cruise liner. I always used to think that it would be my idea of hell. I'm still inclined to that view.

  2. Oh drat, and double drat, I posted that cruise just for you!!!
    I'll find the time to do anything that piques my interest, it's the funds (or lack thereof) that keep me in check sometimes.

    1. Oh I'm so sorry Virginia. I'd love to see the places (but properly rather than as a two-second-tourist) but it's the idea of the on-board life that really doesn't appeal.

    2. If only The Black Hawk could fly!!!
