Cruise chosen as a way of seeing the Caribbean and enjoying lengthy times at sea. Ship is a fantastic ocean going vessel and rides it so well. That's where it ends. Very tired and plain looking even after a recent refit. the biggest ... Read more

We have just returned home from a wonderful cruise on P & O Aurora. The staff were all welcoming and very efficient. We chose a delux balcony cabin, there was loads of drawer & wardrobe space. Our cabin steward was excellent, ... Read more

Great cruise which took in Cadiz, Messina, Corfu, Dubrovnik, Venice & Gibraltar. Past P & O cruisers but our first time on Aurora. Lovely sized ship - not too big. Atmosphere felt very friendly & relaxed - maybe as the average ... Read more

We chose this as an experimental taster first sea cruise - we've been on a couple of river cruises with Viking. Both embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and trouble-free. Ship is described as mid-sized. To us it was enormous. ... Read more

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

Embarkation was really good. 30 minutes from terminal entrance to ships cabin. Disembarkation not so good. Seemed rather disorganised and ended with standing in a long queue for 15 minutes or so. Why do people wait until they arrive at ... Read more

The Aurora is a very comfortable mid size ship and very much the sister to the Oriana. Great curved stern which is no longer the style on more modern ships. Food is fine, not 5 star but standard acceptable with good size potions in dining ... Read more

First the journey to southampton was terrible, why they choose this port is beyond me the best way to describe the port is just ugly. The ship was no better a family room cabin was ideal as a single room, the entertainment third rate acts ... 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

Chose this cruise as travelling with parents who are nearly 80 (unsure whether a cruise would suit them and mum unsteady on feet), partner and son age 6. Thought it would be a good tester cruise for the wider family. Booked a balcony ... 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

1st review - hope it helps. Our 5th cruise, all with P&O and we were very pleased with the ship facilities certainly better than the Oceana which we thought was a bit tired. Embarkation and debarkation were well organised. ... Read more
