This was the 12th cruise my wife and I had taken and the third to the fjords. It was one of the best. The ship is an ideal size allowing around 1800 passengers. We prefer this to the super liners which seem so congested. Aurora is ... Read more

Our second voyage aboard Aurora and once again totally wonderful, from the moment we stepped aboard, till the moment we disembarked. As you walk aboard, a friendly crew member is there to welcome you and hand you a map of the ship. I ... Read more

I would have given this a 5-star excellent but for the entertainment - more about that later. We chose this cruise for the itinerary and date as well as wanting to cruise with P&O and depart from Southampton. Also, the size and ... Read more

First off I should start by saying that I am one of those people who likes to travel alone. I enjoy the time to completely relax and do just what I want to do. So it was with a little trepidation that I set out on this, my very first ... Read more

Unlike some I didn't experience any poor service at all. In fact I preferred the style compared to American ships I've been on which I tend to find the staff too intrusive. Similarly the embarkation and disembarkation went very well indeed ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because of price and the itinerary. Our boarding was earlier than expected and as we entered the ship we were welcomed and advised that our cabin was ready. Our balcony cabin was spotless and our steward Stenley ... Read more

P&O UK is “British to the bootstraps” but I do believe they are trying to be something they are not, particularly in regard to dress code and maintenance. For example, the information pack provided to passengers before ... Read more

If this was our first cruise we would have thought well it was OK but, we have had 3 cruises in total so we had something to compare this cruise with. The balcony cabin was the smallest we had been in and not a lot of room for a lengthy ... Read more
