Azura was delivered in March 2010 from Fincantieri-Cant. Nav. Italiani S.p.A.,Monfalcone (Yard/hull No: 6166). She is in the same series as Ventura which was launched in June 2007 and delivered in March 2008 from Fincantieri (Yard/hull No: 6132).

Azura was at the new Ocean Terminal (berth 46). Black Watch and Arcadia were also in port at the City and Mayflower Terminals respectively, but Azura departed first at 16:30, so images of the others leaving were not possible. We were followed down Southampton Water by the container ship APL Russia.

We had dinner on 2nd Sitting in the Oriental Restaurant - the dark panelled one as initiated on Oriana. The Peninsular Restaurant has lighter coloured panelling. Neither are spectacular in the way that many cruise lines design their main restaurants. Both have the usual two dinner sittings. The third main restaurant, the Meridian, is the Freedom Dining option.

Our cabin was D630 on Dominica Deck 9. This was a spacious balcony cabin with a large sitting area, full-sized bath, two flat screen TVs0?.,/
#'0 and lots of storage space in a walk-in wardrobe. Some of the niceties that have long been banished by the Carnival bean counters were still available in this cabin, complimentary bottle of (real) champagne, hors d'oevres, nice dressing gowns, fruit bowls, etc.

We discovered late in day that the itinerary had been changed, Dublin and Cobh visits being swapped.
