The Azura has 3100 passengers but doesn't feel like a big ship which is why it has its fans and such a high returning customer base to its 14/19 passenger decks. With some bigger ships having over 6800 passengers and the P&O flagship Britannia having approx 3640 passengers, maybe, the Azura will soon no longer be referred to as large....

So, this is what it was like, a little different. When I say lost, it is a loss to us, because the...
