I’ve read that Azura has hit more problems, probably electrical ones. She has diverted to Bergen – AIS shows her berthed there already – and will now not arrive in Southampton until Saturday sometime at the earliest, maybe even Sunday. The next cruise has been delayed until Sunday, and will now only last for 12 nights instead of 14. Passengers on the next cruise have been offered a reduction in price on that cruise of 15% plus, I gather, 10% off their next P&O cruise.
As if that wasn’t enough, both Oriana and Ventura have been delayed leaving Southampton today. This seems to be because of the extreme weather conditions in the English Channel, with very high winds during today and earlier this evening. But the conditions are moderating now. Oriana is beginning a 21-night cruise to the Black Sea and back, while Ventura is starting a 14-night Iberian coast cruise, with calls at ports in Portugal, Spain, and Morocco.
