Aurora – 5th – 26th August, Iceland and Norway
Bernadeta Anna Gabb | September 5, 2022 | P&O Cruises | Aurora
Sadly, we were two of several dozen who contracted Covid on board the Aurora, we were confined to cabin – albeit moved to a balcony room, due to my husband also getting a chest infection – which required antibiotics. I was isolated for 7 days discharged on day 8, husband had to stay for a further four days, so half his holiday. Meals often arrived late in the evening and sometimes cold, one lunchtime we asked for soup, which whilst arriving hot, we were unable to enjoy as we had no cutlery or napkins.
The cabins are starting to look tired, bathroom plumbing often leaking and shower hoses in need of replacement.
Staff continue to be as helpful as ever. However, the Captain failed to mention or even commiserate with passenger stuck in their cabins.
If this had been our first cruise, we would not sail again.
It didn’t help that P&O changed the ruling prior to sailing. We had booked a test with Randox as per original requirement, which we attended, however whilst I know we were negative at the time of test – ie. 4th August, how many people joined the cruise without said test and quite possibly infectious?
