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.

Azura's entertainment venues

The Playhouse theatre

As soon as you enter Azura's 800 seat, two tier theatre immediately your expectations begin to build. And rightly so. With multiple performances on selected nights, you can plan your evening however you like. Catch a show before dinner or enjoy one after. With cabaret performances, stand-up comedy, interactive game shows, quizzes, aerial flying acrobatics and talent shows, it's sure to be an evening to remember.

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. This multipurpose entertainment venue will have something special in store for everyone. It's no wonder everyone loves New York.


The exotic vibe of Malabar is inspired by the contemporary hotels on Marine Drive, Mumbai. It's a blend of modern Indian sophistication. 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.


At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d strolled into a smart London pub instead. The Brodie’s ambience is both contemporary and intimate–a relaxed hidey-hole by day and a live lier watering hole by night. It’s designed to inspire your spirit of exploration and adventure and offers a collection of the finest British beers, ales and ciders –the largest collection of bottled British beers at sea, in fact.

SeaScreen open air cinema

Imagine watching a film under a starry, night sky, while you're being magically transported to another new destination. 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.

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.

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.
