Single cabins – you wanna bet?

//Single cabins – you wanna bet?

P&O were applauded when they announced that they were including single cabins for passengers travelling solo on their new ship, Azura.
Now I’ve realised where they are, I’m not so sure.
Looking at the deck plans in the inaugural brochure, released this week, I see that the 12 outside and six inside single cabins are right next to the casino.
Which means two things. There’s less space for the casino and adjoining Marquis bar than in the equivalent areas on the Ventura. And secondly, those cabins had better be well soundproofed to keep out the noise of the cheering (or weeping) gamblers and the incessant jangle of fruit machines.
Here’s hoping.

    I used one of the single cabins on Azura in October-November. Very comfy and completely quiet. The central location was good too.

    Have just been talking to a neighbour who had one of the new single cabins on Ventura, she was kept awake until after 2:00am by the noise of the karaoke bar, one lady took her duvet and slept by reception. She got £100 refund, not a lot for a spoilt holiday.
