Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Azura has been a firm favourite with families since her christening by ballet dancer, Darcey Bussell, in 2010. At 115,000 tons, Azura offers an abundance of space in which to relax, unwind, and have fun. With more than eight eateries, five entertainment venues, eight bars and lounges, a three-deck high atrium, and a plethora of sports and leisure amenities, you'll be spoilt for choice. Discover family fun in the age-specific children's clubs at The Reef or splash around at the paddling pool and two family-friendly swimming pools. Relax in a shaded cabana at The Retreat — an adult-only terrace, unwind with a massage at Oasis Spa, or show off your skills at a watercolour art class. Get active with Pilates, yoga and dance classes or test out the gym equipment. Catch a film at SeaScreen open-air cinema, or treat yourself to a designer perfume or handbag at the shopping gallery. Days in port open up a world of sightseeing, thrilling adventures, and cultural activities.

Food
Azura offers casual and gourmet dining options. The ship has three main dining rooms, Peninsular, Oriental and Meridian, each offering an extensive five-course dinner menu. Peninsular and Oriental offer Flexible Dining or choose traditional Club Dining at either an early or late sitting at Meridian. The casual-style Verona offers Italian buffet-style breakfasts and lunches, while the main Venezia eatery is open for round-the-clock light bites and international dishes. There is also a grill, 'grab and go' counter, and pizzeria if you get peckish beside the pool. The speciality dining options include Sindhu Restaurant which offers a menu designed by celebrity chef, Atul Kochhar, fusing Indian and British flavours and exotic cocktails. Head to The Glass House and enjoy the signature menu, where every dish is paired with a glass of wine suggested by celebrity sommelier, Olly Smith. For that sense of occasion, Epicurean is the perfect choice and showcases a menu of mouth-watering, gourmet British food.

Drink
There are lots of places to drink and socialise on Azura. Relax with a freshly-brewed Costa cappuccino in Java coffee bar, or choose an exotic cocktail in The Glass House. Play pool and watch live sports with a beer in British pub-style Brodie's bar, or chat with friends over a glass of wine in Planet Bar. The Blue Bar offers a sophisticated ambience and is the perfect spot to unwind with a signature cocktail and music.

Entertainment
There is something for everyone on Azura in the evening. The Playhouse presents West End shows, stand-up comedy, interactive game shows, and dance performances on stage twice nightly. Enjoy the exotic vibe of Malabar with its piano recitals, bands, cabaret, and dancing shows. The New York themed Manhattan lounge showcases music from across the decades, as well as tribute acts and dance performances. Risk a few pennies in the slot machines at the casino or simply absorb the atmosphere from the sidelines with your favourite drink.
Day 1: Fly UK - Barbados
Fly from your selected UK airport to Barbados, and be transferred to the port to embark on board Azura.
Day 2: Barbados
It's easy to see why Barbados is known as 'Little England' with its Georgian houses, Lord Nelson Statue and Parliament Square. Indulge in retail therapy on Broad Street, admire stunning views and rugged island landscapes on a jeep island safari, or visit the dramatic stalactites and stalagmites of Harrison's Cave. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience - sail on a catamaran to swim with once-endangered hawksbill and green sea turtles.
Day 3: Kingstown, St. Vincent
Kingstown is the capital and main commercial centre of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The city has a vibrant buzz of car horns, street vendors and music which can be heard throughout the narrow streets. Kingstown is surrounded by steep hills and natural beauty. Palm trees line the streets and Fort Charlotte is the perfect spot the gaze at the stunning views of the city. Escape to the tranquil surroundings of St Vincent Botanical Gardens, the oldest in the West Indies. A trip to St George's Anglican Cathedral shouldn't be missed; the stained glass will take your breath away.
Day 4: At Sea
Day 5: Antigua
With 365 dreamy stretches of sand, Antigua boasts 'a beach for every day of the year.' Your holiday here will probably last less than 52 weeks (shame) but you'll still get in plenty of beach-based downtime. The sands are powder soft, palm fringed and simply stunning. Take a dip beneath the crystal clear waters and see spectacular coral reefs, or try one of the many other water sports on the menu. Straddling the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Antigua is something of a sailing mecca and hundreds of luxury yachts are docked in the island's harbours. Nelson's Dockyard gives you the chance to learn more about the island's maritime history and see old ships restored to their former glory. Inland, Antigua's all pretty hillside villages, rainbow coloured houses and an easy-going vibe. With delicious cuisine, prime seafront spots and sumptuous rooms, Antigua's hotels are some of our favourite Caribbean hideaways.
Day 6: St Maarten
This minute island offers a cosmopolitan culture, first-class dining scenes, international shopping, and a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere. Savour delicious barbecued meats in street cafes and dance to calypso sounds at a barefoot beach bar. Head to the ruins of the French and Dutch forts which overlook the Caribbean Sea, or visit Philipsburg waterfront for duty-free shopping.
Day 7: St Kitts
St. Kitts is renowned for its rainforest mountains and picturesque beaches with white, grey and black sands. Head to the Circus Square marketplace for a great selection of local produce and textiles, follow rainforest trekking trails up to a dormant volcano, or, why not simply relax one of the sun-drenched beaches that surround the island?
Day 8: At Sea
Day 9: Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos
Grand Turk is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos and the place where Christopher Columbus first made landfall on his initial voyage to the New World in 1492. Find many Colonial-style buildings and ruins and explore the Turks and Caicos National Museum to discover the islands' history. Try snorkelling and diving off the reefs or whale watch for humpback whales off the coast. Cockburn Town is the centre piece of the island; discover a wonderful selection of historical buildings and an unforgettable rustic charm.
Day 11: Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands. Powder-white sands, azure seas and verdant green mountains set the scene; equally matched by tasty culinary experiences, luxurious holiday resorts, and a wealth of famous attractions. Explore the eclectic mix of shops in Road Town or escape to the tranquillity of J R O'Neal Botanic Gardens. Get up close to nature at Sage Mountain National Park or visit the giant boulders and rock formations at The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Go surfing at Cane Garden Bay or snorkel amongst tropical fish and coral at Smuggler's Cove. Swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery or sample locally-made rum at Callwood's Rum Distillery.
Day 12: At Sea
Day 13: St Lucia
Arrive in St. Lucia and experience some of the Caribbean's most dramatic scenery. The island's natural landscape features the majestic Piton Mountains, pristine beaches lined with palm trees and miles of unspoiled rainforest. Shop for souvenirs at the colourful Central Market in Castries — the capital city, snorkel in the crystalline waters of Half-Moon Bay and enjoy a picnic on a lemon grass lawn at Pigeon Island National Park.
Day 14: Grenada
Grenada is a Caribbean country comprising smaller surrounding islands and a main island also called Grenada. Referred to as the 'Spice Isle', Grenada is home to numerous nutmeg plantations. A crater lake in an extinct volcano, Grand Etang Lake, is a fascinating visit. Discover the art of traditional-style rum-making at River Antoine Rum Distillery and marvel at scenic views from the hilltop historic site Fort George. The cascading waters and lush surroundings of Annandale Falls will leave you in awe and the pretty harbour and fishing destination of The Carenage is the perfect place for a peaceful stroll along the water's edge. Splash in the water, sunbathe, or snorkel near the powder-white shores of Grand Anse Beach.
Day 15: Barbados – Fly UK
Disembark in Barbados and be transferred to airport for your flight back to the UK
