Like most of the passenger's aboard, we were doing this cruise to get away form the winter weather. This turned out to be a very lucky choice! From beginning to end we had wall to wall sunshine and calm seas with only a couple of bumpy days leaving and returning to UK home waters. We did have a bit of rain in Tobago and Antigua but it was brief and of the 'liquid sunshine' variety. We've never ...

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 ...

I have been on Aurora before and although it was not brilliant it was ok and the timing of the cruise was good. However this time round the cruise was not only awful, cheap tasteless food, miserable crew, dirty cabins, hostile reception staff and manager, the persistence of the crew in selling you stuff especially from the Spa team was very harassing and brutal. Whilst eating lunch they would ...

25 days Southampton to Caribbean and back Embarkation worked well came from home on Eavesway Travel on the ship inside 1/2 hour of arriving. Aurora is one of the older style ships and suits us looking a little worn here and there but nothing major and doesn't detract from her. Cabin C190 balcony plenty big enough for the 2 of us clean and bright, plenty of closet/drawer space. Be aware ...

After being regaled non stop by me about the excellent food and shows you get on a P&O Cruise,I finally managed to convince my wife to take her first ever cruise......We decided on the Caribbean Christmas and New Year Cruise on Aurora - I cruised on the same ship in 2013 on her Transatlantic and Canada trip and was looking forward to being reunited with the ship. Boarding went well, and the A Deck ...

Cruise chosen as a way of seeing the Caribbean and enjoying lengthy times at sea. Ship is a fantastic ocean going vessel and rides it so well. That's where it ends. Very tired and plain looking even after a recent refit. the biggest disappointment was the food. You would never starve but boring, bland old peoples food. No taste, no flavour etc.. I suppose they are catering for the age of the ...

Ship ok, considering just had refit carpets are filthy in cabins, public lounges bars etc nice and clean Alexandria waiters excellent the best we have ever had. Food ok can notice cutbacks within the menus. The real downside for us was the entertainment very very poor not sure if it was down to Leon to book or main office but something needs to be done about it when you spend £8000 for four ...

This cruise on Aurora was to be a special cruise for our 40th wedding and husbands 65th birthday. Ship found to be tatty and generally food and service below what to expect since our last cruise with P&O. Noise in cabin from slamming drawers and doors in adjoining cabins and unable to sit out on balcony most days due to smoking on balcony either side. Had to book tours due to ship location in ...

We travelled down from Lancashire the day before sailing and stayed in the Holiday Inn at Eastleigh. This was a comfortable hotel and a relaxing start to the cruise. Boarding was stress free as we had priority boarding and we were on ship before noon and enjoying the complimentary champagne and lunch in Carmens. We had our hands squirted with gel 5 times before we actually got into ...
