Been twice on Ventura only once on Azura. But, I personally think Azura seems less rowdy. Could be because we went out of the school holidays. But then again we did on both our Ventura ones!
Love the covered pool on Ventura... waste of space for the sky screen on Azura.
Now... the Glasshouse..... Super :)
Would go on either again. :)


Strange that's one reason I preferred Ventura. Far less rowdy due to more open space. :lol: Yes I like the covered pool although hubby loved the seascreen on Azura. I suppose they need to be slightly different to give choice. Like you would go on either again.................and aim to have a C deck balcony! :D

What a great shot. She looks as though she is marooned in the middle of nowhere. :)

Yes, she does....a little bit like the awful pictures after tsunamis. Quite a surreal shot, in fact. :o

Is that the smoking or non smoking side, BB?
Oh, it's empty- non, then.

We picked up a cheapie on cruise dot- no cabin choice, but at £645, who cares?- it's for a week in Norway in May.

Ooh lovely! :D I love the fjords! ;)

I did similar a few years ago in May, but with Fred. Olsen. We booked just 2 weeks before for £399pp!! For the price we paid cabin, location didn't matter. It was our first time to the fjords and we had glorious weather and a really super cruise!

Enjoy! :D

This was a very special offer- pay today and have this price....so we did! Naively, we asked if there was any chance of being on deck 5, near Costa coffee, again....no, you'll be told where....
Worth a try!

Will be going on Ventura in 3 weeks time this will be our first time on this ship , I am not to sure if its a little to big for me but will-go with a open mind.
We are calling in on La Rochelle a place i love,La coruna another good place to walk around with a beautiful beach area mind you will probably be a little on the cold side for me at this time of year.
Not being to bright in the brain department I bought a new printer yesterday to print my e tickets off what a pa lava started at 5 o'clock finished at midnight.
why don't they make anything the same as what you had before my swear box is over flowing,but at least I've started to save for my next cruise.
