Azura in focus: entertainment

There’s never a dull moment on board Azura, when it comes to entertainment and things to do we’ve something for everyone.

All entertainment venues on board Azura


Theatre shows



Our new interactive gameshow, WaveLength, is such a big hit we’ve launched it across the fleet for you to play on every ship. Created exclusively for P&O Cruises and virtually starring TV and game show host, Ben Shephard, it’s fun for audience and contestants alike.


Prepare to be amazed with this spectacular magic and illusion show created by Stephen Mulhern and Jonathan Wilkes, that from start to finish will leave you thinking ‘how did they do that?’.

On the Horizon

Headliners Theatre Company invite you to their premier show as they take you on a journey, bringing your cruise programme to life through an eclectic mix of song and dance.


A new era of musicals is taking theatres by storm. A strong contemporary line up of musicals including 9 to 5, Tina, Matilda, Moulin Rouge and Frozen. Join us for a night of the best musical theatre currently on offer.




Manhattan show lounge

Enjoy spectacular cabaret performances, fun quiz shows, tribute acts, family shows and glittering discos. With so much to see and do on board Azura, every night will dance to a different beat. And nowhere is this more true than Manhattan, our New York inspired classic entertainment lounge.


The exotic vibe of Malabar is inspired by the contemporary hotels on Marine Drive, Mumbai. When you arrive, your eyes are greeted with sumptuous fabrics, gold leaf on the ceiling and a smiling waiter to take your order. Then it's time for the evening's entertainment to begin; you can be sure it'll always be different. With piano recitals, cabaret, bands and dancing, it's the perfect place to while away the evening.


This much-loved British pub boasts the ship’s largest range of British and international bottled beers, ciders and real ale. By day, Brodie’s hosts quizzes and live sport, by night you’ll find live entertainment, karaoke and game shows.


 Relax and unwind


The Retreat

For even more outdoor enjoyment, spoil yourself with an alfresco spa treatment at The Retreat, Azura’s outdoor spa terrace. Sit back and relax on one of the inviting shaded cabanas. The experience comes complete with personal wait service, luxurious robes and towels and more.

Oasis Spa and Salon

For a more traditional spa experience, bliss out in the Oasis Spa and Salon, which offers everything from massages and facials to The Thermal Suite and its therapeutic steam rooms, tropical shower and heated ceramic benches.


 Family fun


Why not try out our range of family-friendly ships?

Of course, we know how precious family time is. If you can tear them away from the clubs, there’s a wide range of activities and entertainment to enjoy all together. There's lots of delicious dining options to choose from too.

 Daytime fun



Get ready to make a splash with our amazing choice of pools on board. On Azura, you will find 4 pools and 6 whirlpool spas, perfect for when you want a refreshing dip whilst watching the world go by.


If you've energy left from exploring ashore, why not try a new sport –archery, maybe? Or a swing in the golf nets? What about some friendly family competition playing giant chess, table tennis or shuffleboard? There’s so much to do on board, all at no extra charge.


With dance instructors on board every cruise, why not learn a new skill? Perhaps salsa or line dancing? Or if you just want to bust a move, look no further than our silent disco evenings.


 And so much more!


SeaScreen open air cinema

SeaScreen is one of the most exciting features on board Azura because it's more than just a pool – it's an open-air cinema as well! The giant screen sitting proudly above the beautifully designed pool area will show a variety of classic films, family favourites and the latest blockbusters.

The Casino

The flashing lights of the slot machines and the suspense of blackjack beckons, as does a great night out. After soaking up the cosy bonhomie of Brodie's bar, you might like to enjoy the buzz of the adjacent casino. Try your hand at black jack, roulette and the slot machines or simply watch the action from the sidelines with your tipple of choice.


Most of our ships feature their own library – perfect for whiling away a few hours with your nose in a book. You’re welcome to take a seat and enjoy the peace and quiet or borrow a book (or as many as you’ll get through!) for the duration of your holiday. You’ll also find computers if you need to connect and have left your device at home.

Art gallery

Whitewall Galleries offer a wide range of artwork from leading contemporary artists as well as 20th Century masters. During your cruise there will be a range of informative seminars, exciting exhibitions and exclusive VIP events for you to attend. When you purchase any on board credit goes towards your painting and there are easy delivery options available.
