Ship Facts: Aurora Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Aurora Deck Plans
Aurora cruise, Singapore to Dubai March 2012
When we and our friends arrived in Singapore the transfer coach took us on an unscheduled tour as the ship was not ready to receive us for a few hours. We are glad to say it was an excellent introduction to Singapore especially for those of us who had never travelled past Turkey. It was informative and comfortable and also FREE! The other port trips were also very good.

When we boarded we were directed to our cabin where we were desperate to take a shower. Pity the water was only tepid and when we rang to request it be attended to we were told that they would deal as soon as possible but that the staff were dealing with a few leaks!!!

It was a feature of the cruise that the plumbing on board would leak in corridors and bar areas ( the leaks in one of the bars were there for last 10 days of our section of the world cruise and the buckets never moved from the window seat area on the port side).

The plus sides were the usual, the food was good and varied and individual requirements catered for. The ship was kept spotless and the staff were absolutely brilliant in the restaurants and pretty good elsewhere too. The entertainment was too dependant on the holidaymakers rather than celebrity guests which we found disappointing and also only had 45 minute acts or events. The cinema showed 10 year old+ films with poor quality display screens compared to the 6 month old or less films on the airplanes that we travelled on to and from the ship. Summary we will go for a bigger,newer ship and will embark and disembark in the UK from now on.
