They are unable to carry babies under the age of six months on any of their holidays. Children under the age of 16 years old are not permitted to travel in a cabin alone. Passengers under 16 years of age must be accompanied in the stateroom by a guest who is 16 years of age or older. Additionally, they must be 'escorted' with an adult aged over 18 in a separate cabin.

The ship operates three styles of dress code: Smart, Evening Casual and Black Tie.
On Smart evenings ladies typically wear tailored trousers and separates or even a stylish dress, while men are in a shirt and trousers with a jacket, such as a blazer or sports jacket, or a suit and tie if they wish. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Smart evenings.
Stylish resort or leisurewear is ideal for Evening Casual nights, for example casual separates or dresses for ladies and open-neck polo shirts and casual trousers (not shorts) for men. A jacket and smart trousers can be worn but are not compulsory. Smart dark denim is also fine, but not trainers, football shirts or tracksuits. For a typical two week cruise on Azura, Britannia, Oceana or Ventura there are normally ten Evening Casual nights. On Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Oriana there are normally six Evening Casual nights.
Black Tie nights (also known as Gala Evenings)add a touch of glamour and a real sense of occasion to evenings at sea. Ladies wear glamorous evening wear including cocktail dresses, ball gowns or even smart trouser suits. For men, dinner jackets or tuxedos are the norm, but a dark lounge or business suit and tie can be worn as an alternative. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Black Tie evenings on board.
During the day casual shirts, shorts, trousers and beachwear are ideal.
There are dedicated areas onboard where smoking is permitted. Smoking is not permitted in any public room, inside cabin or on cabin balconies. Guests may smoke on the starboard side of open decks onboard Azura.
Electronic cigarettes, including those which do not emit smoke, can be used in designated smoking areas only.
Although we recognise that electronic cigarettes are not covered by the UK legislation we have taken the decision to prohibit their use in all public areas and cabins in the same way as real cigarettes for the benefit of all of our guests.
The ultimate in luxury, our butler-serviced Suites offer the extra space of a lounge area (perfect for entertaining), a superior bathroom, dressing area and a broad balcony to take in the sights.
There's nothing quite like opening your patio style doors onto your own private balcony, especially to take in the fresh morning air or to enjoy a spectacular sail in to your next destination.
If a balcony is not top of your list, but you're seeking great value and a sea view, then our Sea view cabins are ideal. Well designed and with all those little extras.
These spacious cabins are perfect if you want a more economical way to travel and prefer to be out and about experiencing the ship or reclining up on deck by the pools.
With the choice of either an inside or outside location, these cabins are perfect for the single traveller. Air-conditioned, mirrored, single inside cabins have one lower single bed with wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom has a shower and WC. There is a vanity/writing desk, and a TV for your enjoyment, plus a radio, telephone, safe, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. On arrival you will be offered Mineral water and a pamper pack.
