She was beautiful, elegant, delightful...and wore a red dress by Jasper Conran.
She was chosen as she epitomises glamour, sophistication and elegance ''all the qualities we are trying to achieve with Azura'' says Carol Marlow.... A perfect choice as Godmother for Azura. She didn’t make a speech, just named the ship and cut the clapperboard tape which launched the champagne, but everything went as it should and everyone enjoyed the party.
After strolling around the ship and watching a Annie Lennox Tribute singer, it was time for bed, and on our bed - a lovely surprise of Dartington Glasses in a presentation box with a blue wave design swirling around each flute.
In the morning we ate breakfast in the Peninsular Restaurant, and then it was time to reluctantly leave this fine beautiful ship. I would like to return someday soon.
