Boarding the ship was straight forward with no problems at all. We chose the freedom dining option which suited us, eating mostly in the horizon restaurant. For the black tie nights we ate in the medina, both were quite good and always ... Read more

Our third cruise - and the first with P and O - was to the Norwegian Fjords. It was somewhere I had wanted to go for a long time and this cruise did not disappoint! We drove to Southampton the previous day and stayed overnight at the ... Read more

Probably the best ship in P&O's fleet, having sailed on her, around the world and elsewhere, several times since 2007. Sadly her recent refit has removed one of her most loved features - The Bordeaux Restaurant, and replaced it with ... Read more

This was our first P&O UK cruise travelling from the UK back to New Zealand. Previously we had cruised 6 times with Princess so we are not inexperienced at cruising. Aurora is a lovely ship, well designed in terms of passenger space ... Read more

Just read a review of this cruise which I also thoroughly enjoyed, so it's prompted me to write mine! My 15th with P and O and my 2nd solo. Embarkation was as quick and easy as usual, taking around 17 minutes in all; it's one of the ... Read more

As this was the last scheduled cruise by the Aurora before its well-publicised re-fit, we did wonder if standards might be expected to slip, but our fears were groundless. This was our third cruise but we have never been with P&O ... Read more

Went on a 3 night taster cruise in May and loved it. Took my family this weekend to show them that P&O was worth a try and leaving their regular cruise line. BIG Mistake - First the food; we like informal dining and after the first ... Read more

Recommended by friends to try the 'Aurora'. having experienced Adonia, Arcadia and Oceania. Aurora is a mid-sized ship, just how we like it not to small or large. We did know it was a 'Strictly' cruise but we chose this cruise for the ... Read more

I was very apprehensive as this was our first cruise but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The strictly theme was excellent and we couldn't believe the quality of the entertainment. We stayed a 5 star hotel in Tenerife earlier in the year and we ... Read more

Just returned home from a 12 cruise to the Canary's on board Aurora. Found the ship to be easy to navigate and clean on the whole but perhaps a little tired and the forthcoming refit is going to be a timely one. Food was fantastic in all ... Read more

Having read disparaging reviews of the age of the ship, I was expecting to see evidence of that, and to find non-functioning ameneties. All were satisfactory. The quality of the cruise exceeded expectations as far as the ship and its ... Read more
