1st review - hope it helps. Our 5th cruise, all with P&O and we were very pleased with the ship facilities certainly better than the Oceana which we thought was a bit tired. Embarkation and debarkation were well organised. Though the ship was full we never struggled to find a comfortable seat. We had an inside cabin as usual (C137) and were pleased with it. The shower had better pressure ...

Efficient and friendly check in.Our inside cabin on deck 12 was excellent for buffet and swimming pools.Cabin small as with most inside cabins but adequate and dwell maintained byan exceptionally efficient steward, Jeffrey, probably the best we have ver had in our 17 cruises.We asked for rubber mat for shower and a sewing kit and both appeared instantly.He was great when the whole areas toilet ...

Yesterday I arrived home from my first ever cruise, I couldn't have been more sad to leave, not only was this my first cruise, but it was my first 'big' family holiday, which made it all the better. Everything about the cruise was perfect, I do not have one complaint, the service and looking after you will receive is outstanding. Dinner especially was one of my personal favourite times, you are ...

Just back from a 10 day cruise from Southampton calling at La Coruna, Casablanca, Gibraltar, Cadiz, Seville & Lisbon. Our first cruise with P&O, I would grade it just above Thomson cruises. Drinks at the bar were pretty reasonable with no service charged slapped on top. On this 10 day cruise there were 3 formal, 2 Smart casual & 5 casual evenings. Apart from one dinner in the Orangery self-service ...

Some key points before the full review: This was our first cruise with P&O, we had cruised twice previously with Cunard - this compared very favourably. On Cunard ships there seemed to be a 'Ball' every night and there were less formal opportunities to ballroom dance on this cruise if that was your thing but we don't so it didn't bother us. There was ball room dancing going on in Carmens in the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise, I had done a lot of research to find a holiday that would be suitable for our daughter who has allergies, lots of people said a cruise catered well for this. We were recommended P&O by friends and we were not disappointed. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Southampton the night before which was lovely. Our car and cases were taken away at aurora's side and we boarded ...

I am brand new to the cruise reviews but a very long term big fan of aurora. Our first cruise on her was in july2000 which was the year of her launch. My partner & I and our two daughters then age 8 & 11 were first time cruisers and we did not know what to expect. What we got was the best family holiday that we had ever had, the ship was beautiful, the food superb and the ships staff from cabin ...
