Myself and partner are in our early 40's and booked the cruise as visiting many destinations appealed to us as oppose to a standard holiday where you visit just 1. This was our very 1st cruise and we were surprised as it seemed 95% of all ... Read more

What do a 50+ year old male ex-teacher, a 40+ year old female with significant mobility problems and a 19 year old geology student with a love for musical theatre have in common? Two things: 1) we are one family 2) Aurora did a marvellous ... Read more

The last time we travelled on a P&O ship was in the 1960's on the Orcades. Having read many of the reviews we were somewhat apprehensive about the Dress Code as having travelled on many other cruise line from here in Australia and ... Read more

We booked a cruise to Norway visiting Honnigsvaag and the fjords just a few weeks before it due to sail. We got a very good price for an outside cabin and, having cruised with P&O once before several years ago, were very excited about ... Read more

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

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

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
