Additional details

Sail Date: May 2011
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

We have recently taken a 13 night cruise aboard the MV Aurora to the Baltic, visiting a total of 7 ports.

We are pretty independent travellers and do not usually book tours with the Cruise company, preferring to explore on our own. Shopping does not feature high on our list of priorities, preferring to see more of the actual cities and their architecture.

The Aurora is a lovely ship, typically old style P&O I'm led to believe with a "comfortable" air about her. She has a lovely teak promenade deck, great for keeping fit or just trying to keep the weight down because the food on board is some of the best I have experienced on a cruise ship.

Cabin DA

Cabin B219 - Deluxe Balcony stateroom.

POSITIVES

Overall of a good standard, tastefully decorated and furnished. Very good size bathroom with full size bath and shower.

Plenty of storage space and hangers.

Bed very comfortable.

Wooden furniture on balcony, making a nice change from plastic.

Not far from lifts and stairs, making access to all areas very convenient.

NEGATIVES

Walls between rooms extremely thin. It is the only trip I have ever been on that I seriously wanted to be moved from a room. Needed earplugs to block out the noise from neighbouring room. Obviously it depends on who the neighbours are; in this instance they were heavy smokers who had seriously dreadful smokers coughs that went on throughout the day and night, interspersed with heavy bouts of snoring at night and noisy conversation the rest of the time. (It was as if the couple were totally oblivious to their environment).
