107 nights Aboard Aurora
Mike & Jenny Baker | May 6, 2016 | P&O Cruises | Aurora
We recently returned from 107 nights aboard P&O Aurora having completed the full world cruise. We had never cruised for such a long time before and don’t think we would do so again. However, we did enjoy the cruise. It was a great opportunity to see countries such as China, Japan, Papua New Guinea, India, New Zealand, Oz, Hawaii, etc., etc. – countries we would not visit if we had to fly. We had a large outside cabin on C deck (no balcony) which was kept spotlessly clean by our friendly stewardess. The food was reasonbly good, but we have noticed that quality and variety is not as good as 5 years ago (when we first cruised with P&O). Evening entertainment in the theatre varied from excellent to not very good. The cinema had some really good, recently released, films (Lincoln, The Hobbitt, Argo). Daytime entertainment was very good and there was something for everyone if you chose to join in. The facilities onboard are reasonably good, however, the laundrettes were very busy most of the time and due to failure of appliances (tumber dryers) caused a lot of irritation amongst passengers. On C deck, 3 of the 6 dryers didn’t function for 80% of the cruise! The staff were friendly and helpful, and our waiters in the Alexandria restaurant were excellent. We are planning another cruise, but not this year, 107 nights was enough!
