P&O Cruises has revealed the details of Azura’s multimillion-pound refit in Ferrol, Spain, in April.

Beds, bathrooms, woodwork, lighting and interiors in the cabins on the 3,100-passenger ship will be updated, the line said.

All public areas, bars and restaurants will have new carpets, soft furnishings and furniture.

Dining areas, entertainment venues and children’s space H20 will also be upgraded.

Following the revamp, draught beer will be served in four bars – Blue Bar, Brodie’s, Malabar and the poolside Terrace Bar – across the ship.
