About This Ship
Cabins: Accommodations are a bit on the small side. Standard staterooms have ample storage, a vanity desk, TV, safe, hair dryer, tea/coffeemaker, and refrigerator. Balcony cabins have a small seating area with chair and table, but only Superior Deluxe Balcony categories (and above) have a decent-size seating area with sofa and complimentary slippers, bathrobe, atlas, and binoculars for use during the cruise. Cabins have mineral water and a packet of toiletry essentials on arrival, and Superior Deluxe Balcony cabins also receive a fruit bowl, flowers, champagne and chocolates, as well as canapés once a week. Standard inside cabins have a shower only; all others have a bathtub. On Azura only 18 cabins are designated single-occupancy.
Suites: Suite guests receive mineral water, fruit basket, flowers, champagne, and chocolates on arrival; canapés are delivered daily. A bathrobe, slippers, atlas, and binoculars for use during the cruise are provided. Walk-in closets provide ample storage. Bathrooms have whirlpool tubs and separate shower, except for the two-bedroom family suites on Ventura, which have two bathrooms—one with a tub and the other with shower only. All have a coffeemaker, an iron and ironing board and the added services of a butler.
Accessibility: Twenty-five staterooms are wheelchair accessible.
