Ship Facts: Aurora Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Aurora Deck Plans
our experiences with p.&o over the many years of cruising
over the past40 years we have used mainly p&o.because of theitems listed above thefriendliness and professional approach is why we have gone to this cruise line (via Bolsover cruiseclub) regularly. From the moment we drop the cases offthe car our holiday is underway,withthe complimentary drinks and sandwiches in the crows nest,down to the restaurant to see where we are sitting,a visit to the library, and to the cabin to awaitour luggage. our holiday has started. the band at the quayside sends us on our way,and we are never disappointed.

Over the years the foodhas gone down slightly,( we miss the baked alaska) which was always a nice feature of the Canberra for example. But we realise that to compete on prices, entertainment,staff costs, fuel prices etc. all businesses have to rational their entire budget to survive. We have seen the tremendous growth in the number of ships available. Although far many more people cruise now than ever, and is still growing.

A little criticism perhaps,we often book a year ahead, whilst still on the ship, to get an on board credit,and perhaps free parking,and to get a particular cabin, at the best price available. We see regularly now in the press near to the time of our intended cruise,prices well below the price we negotiated 10 months ago.Both we and our friends have noticed this trend, and are of the opinion thatwe should wait until the last minute before making a booking.We realise that we will not get the cabin we would wish for,but the difference can be substantial. We are aware that you need to fill the ship,but unless some other option i.e.upgrading is offered,some of your regulars will be peeved.That apart we still intend cruising whilst our health and finances allow.
