Aurora Cruise Review by the railway

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom with Shower

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 system packed up early in the cruise, soon rectified by the engineers. The shower was an efficient hand held head (unlike those on the Azura).

Pools were good 1.05 deep. But a lot of the time quite chilly.

Usual trouble with people putting out towels and books and just leaving them

Alexandra restaurant staff Parvin and Ballam looked after our table of 8, Making meal times a pleasure.The food could have been improved, but the buffet was very satisfactory.

Entertainment was mostly good," We,ll meet again" was special.

No 15% Gratuity charge on drinks. Very fair.

We had good weather and calm seas on Bay of Biscay. Cant comment on excursions we do our own thing. Ship not too large just.

We had not visited Corfu before and the four of us got a taxi and had a 2hour trip around

the island. delightful. Venice, P and O charged £15,00 for ferry, if you paid on quay 15 euros..

Gibraltar which we adore had a departure of 2 pm which was not enough time. All down to docking fees. All in all a good cruise, in good weather.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Didnt go in to town been several times and with 3 ships in port thought it would be too busy. Went for a lovely walk along the sea side but got caught in a torrential downpour.


This was very efficient and friendly. No hanging around
