The almost brand new 116,000 tonne liner Azura will be one of the last liners to visit Cobh this year when she visits on Friday. It will arrive in the early morning and will sail at 5.30 pm. It has about 3000 mainly British passengers and over 1200 crew on board.
The Azura has 15 passenger decks, three swimming pools, the 800 seat “Playhouse Theatre”, three large restaurants and an outdoor movie screen called SeaScreen. Children are well catered for on Azura with Noddy for the smallest along with a dedicated Wii room, Scalextric at sea, 3D cinema and circus activities for older children.
There will be trains every 30 minutes until 5 pm in each direction on the Cork to Cobh line to cater for passengers and people wishing to travel to Cobh to see the ship.
