We chose this cruise because we wanted the chance to see the Northern Light. As it was also our first cruise we were unsure what to expect or how we would cope with the lifestyle. Fortunately, we loved it! The whole experience of cruising was so relaxing and enjoyable. Being able to choose what we did and where we went in our own time was something very new to us and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Aurora was one of the smaller ships in the P&O fleet but was beautifully maintained and provided an excellent daily newsletter to keep everyone informed of the daily activities and events.

The service on board was first class from our cabin steward to the waiters in the restaurants. Everybody was so polite, helpful and respectful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and always sufficient (even for the biggest appetite).

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom with Shower

Cabin JB

Very spacious and well maintained and always clean. The steward did a first class job all the time. Plenty of hanging room and storage. Although the balcony was small it was good to be able to see the approaches to the ports and to experience the sea air.
