A number of new innovations combined with a refined and modern interpretation of the classic cruise experience are the defining qualities for the latest superliner from P&O Cruises, Azura, which set sail for the first time in 2010.

To harness eclectic British tastes and honour the rich history of P&O Cruises, Azura features an Indian fine dining restaurant called Sindhu, the creation of celebrated Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar.

Sindhu means meeting point, amalgamation or fusion, and the menu offers a fusion of fine British and Indian cuisine. Dishes such as pan-fried lobster tail in coconut milk and tamarind sauce tempt passengers through the doors of this - just one of 11 - dining venues on board.

TV wine expert Olly Smith has also been enlisted to help create a new ‘Select Dining’ restaurant and wine bar concept - The Glass House.

A must for wine lovers, The Glass House menu features different wines recommended with each course, all served by the glass and expertly matched by Olly.


Azura features 18 single staterooms, a first in the P&O Cruises fleet, and two large suites for extended families or groups of friends to share, meaning more affordable travel suited to today’s diverse market.

The ship offers a record 900 staterooms with private balconies and a select number of spa staterooms, offering exclusive access to the Oasis Spa and added in-cabin extras.

Azura offers traditional 'Club Dining' in the Peninisular and Oriental Resturants at 6.30pm and 8.30pm where passengers dine with the same table companions each evening.
