First pictures inside Azura

//First pictures inside Azura

atriums.jpgP&O have posted the first interior pictures of their newest superliner, Azura, on their Facebook page – and pretty smart they look too.
The atrium lighting (above left) reminds me of the hypnotic colour-changing ceiling designed by Joe Farcus for Costa Concordia (above right); both companies are part of the Carnival Corporation, after all.
With its dark wood panelling, The Marquis Bar (below) has a more familiar P&O feel about it. I’m sure there will be more pictures to come during the next few days, and – weather permitting – I should be on board next week when the ship arrives in The Solent for the first time.
Cunard managing director Carol Marlow and Carnival UK boss David Dingle took delivery of the 116,000-ton ship from Fincantieri’s Monfalcone yard near Trieste, in Italy, on Friday and Captain Keith Dowds will be at the controls when it sets off for Southampton on Wednesday.
Ballerina Darcey Bussell will name the vessel on Saturday April 10.
