Leaving and returning to Southampton with some new Islands in the itinerary were the main reason we chose Aurora R803. We know P&O well but not this ship, we were pleasantly surprised. Everything is close to hand with a good choice of bars and restaurants. The crew were friendly and efficient and the food in all restaurants excellent be it Buffet , MDR or the three speciality ( extra cover charges ) restaurants, Sindhu, Glasshouse and Beachouse.
Drinks were reasonably priced , typically the same as a UK South East pub might charge.
The ship was clean but tired in some areas. Our cabin B142 a deluxe balcony on deck 10 was well appointed with lots of storage space but rather let down by a shabby carpet.
Very well equipped with lots of storage space. Tired decor with shabby carpet.
Bathroom was good with shower over bath. Nice complimentary White Company toiletries.
Balcony was a decent size but rather tatty with a lot of rust evident.
