Title: Sunshine all the way Summary: 55 nights on AURORA, sad to get off to a very wet Southampton! Cruised on Aurora several times. We are comfortable with size & layout of ship. Acknowledge deficiencies due to age of ship & staff cut backs. Great itinerary, calm seas & sunshine. Food better than last two years. Entertainment, films, guest speakers something to please everyone. Mixed age groups, mainly seniors like ourselves.

Title: Carnival Has Ruined P&O. Summary: I have travelled on Aurora since it was a new ship and have reached Baltic level of the Penisular Club. Just returned from the Christmas cruise. Worst cruise ever. Since Carnival took over P&O standards have steadily dropped. The nice touches of P&O have been steadily vanishing. A flower for the ladies with a small box of chocolates on formal nights, quality party poppers at Christmas, having to ask for items such as face flannels...

Title: Christmas Markets Cruise – December 2019 Summary: We decided to join Aurora for this cruise which was much shorter than most trips we tend to do and heading into cooler rather than warmer weather. We’ve cruised on P&O many times before and have always found them to be great value for money and this trip was no exception. The ports of call were Hamburg, Oslo, Copenhagen and Bruges all of which we enjoyed although the hoped for snow for the full winter...

Title: Poor Summary: What about the alleged Nora virus. Could this be linked to the stone cold food?

Title: Lovely ship Summary: We were on Aurora to the canaries on 26th November. Had a wonderful time despite the weather on the way down. Service was excellent as usual. We found some of the passengers rude to the crew at times. The captain kept us all informed about the weather and managed to avoid the bad weather on the way back. The only disappointment for me was that we left Madeira on 1st December before the lights were...

Title: Short Northern Winter Break Summary: 1st time I have traveled from Southampton out of main holiday season, the docks are currently undergoing major works but this didn’t seem to cause to much disruption and we were notified in advance. Used triangle car park as an alternative to c&ps, if you have guests traveling from Ocean Terminal this is a great alternative but as we had a split terminal Ocean/Mayflower a taxi is required between the two. Boarding the ship was...

Title: Magical memories Summary: Our very first cruise . It was my dream to see the northern lights. Not only did my dream come true, from the day I found out I was going to the fjords to the day I came home it was magical. I would highly recommend this cruise . Many people explained it was a smaller ship than some of the others. This suited myself and partner plus it’s an adult only ship. From Bolsover...

Title: Northern lights cruise Summary: Slightly disappointed with the food in the Medina restaurant. Mostly not hot enough. Food in the buffet was much better and more choices. Overall really enjoyed Aurora and hope to go again soon.

Title: Northern Lights Summary: Disappointing cruise, unfortunately, missed seeing the lights although there was some show whilst sailing there didn’t appear to be any ship wide notification of any activity. The dining was good but the menu’s were very much biased toward fish dishes. The specialist dining at the Sindu was very good and offered that something different experience, however the Beech House was the opposite the ribs, five chips, plus veg followed by a apple/pecan pie no bigger...

Title: Music at sea cruise Summary: We have just returned from this cruise. The music side was excellent, with a huge variety of events, all very enjoyable. However we found the food disappointing on this occasion, lacking imagination and of mediocre quality (too many root vegetables as one example). Too many cuts also eg. no birthday balloons, garlands, flags etc. The fun has been taken out of cruising, and we missed this.

Title: The Fall in New England Summary: This cruise was up to P&O Cruises/Aurora usual high standards. We hope this ship is around much longer than anticipated so that we can enjoy her, her crew & ambience again.

Title: Amazing time. Summary: We have just been on the New York and Canada cruise. We had a really amazing time and just loved New York. Lovely friendly ship and crew. Had to take a 600 mile detour to avoid the hurricane and a few eventful instances but the captain was very professional and always kept us informed what was happening.

Title: Canada and USA – Do it on the Aurora if possible- I think Summary: Lovely Transatlantic Cruise, disappointing weather on the way home, but as they say “ you pays your money and takes your chance”. For us the Aurora is P&O s 4 Star flagship – a step above Oceana and Azura, certainly. Plenty of deck space, wide wrap around promenade deck, Anderson’s bar and not to mention , a very efficient tender service. We find the Captains style reflects on the service. On the Aurora this time...

Title: Had a great time. Summary: A cruise to the Canary Islands was just what we needed, plenty of days at sea and lovely weather made this the ideal vacation. We thought that the ship was in good condition after her refit and conversion to “adults only” although there were some references in signage etc. to children which really should have been removed. Obviously the ship is not new so some signs of aging was inevitable but maintenance seemed to to...

Title: Great cruise to Madeira, Spain and the Canary Islands. Summary: Aurora has recently been refitted to be an adult-only ship. The decor is a classic style cruise ship, very elegant. The main dining room meals were excellent, especially the gala dinners inspired by Marco Pierre White and the executive’s chefs. We eat in Sindhu the Asian speciality restaurant for which there is a cover charge but well worth it, we had the 5-course tasting menu which excellent, and as always in the Sindhu restaurants on...

Title: Western Med, August 2nd Summary: Generally, the cruise was lovely, weather and sea conditions ideal. However, over the past 13 years that we have cruised with P & O we have noticed that every time there seems to be something, albeit, quite small that has changed and not for the better. In isolation these things seem trivial but added together are found to be quite irritating. No flowers in the cabin, no turn down service on the first night. Bed...

Title: Decline in food standards/new menus Summary: We have always looked forward to lunchtime seated dining and having been on the Oriana in April so expected the same enjoyable experience on the Aurora. Sadly the lunchtime menus were changed back in late 2018. The menus are confusing with some options repeated. The choices are more like pub meals with chip, chips, chips. The sharing menu portions are too small. Presentation of burgers/sandwiches poor, no side salads, very unappetising. The salad and cold...
