Excellent Ship

This cruise was very good. My criticism would be of the Reception staff or lack of them, but they did deal with enquiries and a bathroom breakdown very well. The service was very good and staff did anticipate ...

Perfect apart from cabin noise

I was one of 6 in a group that had a limited window of time when we could all go away. We have heard good things about cruising to Norway and so we decided on Aurora. This was the first P&O cruise that I had done so ...

Ship Aurora First time on board this ship. Very small. Pluses more personal and intimate. Relaxing not hussel and bushel. Limited activities on board. Food - I think P&O food is deteriorating in standards ...

Great views - shame about the ship

So lets start with the basics - anyone who is looking for a no frills cruise then this is for you. The embarkation went well and we arrived at our cabin around the time that was scheduled for us on our documents - ...

A lovely elegant ship

First impressions were of a beautiful ship with lots of wood, marble and chrome. This impression stayed with me throughout the cruise and made me think of how an elegant club would look. Service on board was ...

Plenty to do on board, food mediocre, service efficient at best

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. ...

In awe of the Aurora

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 ...

Solo traveller with positive experience.

Great Trip, Poor Food

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 ...
