Aurora cruises for 2020-2021


Aurora is based year round in Southampton, and offers cruises ranging from 2 to 28 nights. Itineraries include Arctic Norway, Iceland, Baltic Sea ports, Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean as far as Venice, the Canary Islands, local trips to Spain and France, and one 28-night cruise to the Caribbean (November 2020). Aurora is also well known for her Grand Cruises. In January 2021 a 65-night cruise circumnavigates South America and calls at many ports in the Caribbean and Atlantic. This will be a popular cruise. Then in September 2021 a 30-night cruise departs Southampton for the NE seaboard of the USA and the maritime provinces of Canada; again, a very popular cruise to plan ahead for.

Life aboard Aurora
Aurora is based year round in Southampton, and offers cruises ranging from 2 to 28 nights. Itineraries include Arctic Norway, Iceland, Baltic Sea ports, Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean as far as Venice, the Canary Islands, local trips to Spain and France, and one 28-night cruise to the Caribbean (November 2020). Aurora is also well known for her Grand Cruises. In January 2021 a 65-night cruise circumnavigates South America and calls at many ports in the Caribbean and Atlantic. This will be a popular cruise. Then in September 2021 a 30-night cruise departs Southampton for the NE seaboard of the USA and the maritime provinces of Canada; again, a very popular cruise to plan ahead for.

Aurora entered service in 2000, newly refitted in 2019, and at 76,152 GT carries 1,874 passengers. The ship has ample outside deck space – ideal for long voyages – and enough inside rooms to provide a busy programme of activities, from foreign language and dance classes to lectures and art auctions. There’s also a cinema and casino. Décor appeals to the older Brits. Evening entertainment is greatly varied for long voyages. Aurora is an adult ship (18 and over), loved by a more elderly audience who prefer a traditional cruising experience. Aurora is designed as a classic ocean-going vessel suited to world cruising. P&O Cruises awards the company's Golden Cockerel trophy to the fastest ship in its fleet. The trophy is currently held by Aurora, which achieved a speed of 25.7 knots in April 2019 (yet a tad slower than QM2’s normal service speed).

Accommodation
As one expects with an elegant four-star vessel, staterooms are spacious, most comfortable, with excellent bedding and furnishings. The wide range of cabin configurations allows for family accommodation with extra beds. Staterooms have all the expected amenities, including satellite TV (with major news channels, sports and movies), tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, writing desk, and daily steward service. On arrival receive a luxurious pamper pack of toiletries. Two lower beds can convert to a king-size bed. Some cabins have 3 or 4 berths, inter-connecting doors for families, there are 22 wheelchair-accessible cabins, eight with a private balcony, as well as 9 single oceanview cabins.

Balcony staterooms have a bathroom with bath and shower, lounge area with sofa and table, and full height glass doors to the balcony. Mini-suites add a DVD, clothes pressing facilities, bathrobe and slippers, and magazines and newspapers on arrival – along with fruit, flowers, Champagne, chocolates – and daily canapés. Move up to the spacious full suites for a bathroom with whirlpool, guest bathroom, walk-in dressing area, reclining deck chairs, coffee machine, and butler service. Each of two Penthouse Suites has two levels linked with a spiral staircase, separate lounge and dining areas, and choice of baby grand piano or Hi-Fi system. These are so spacious.

Food and Dining
The main dining rooms are Medina, with a Moorish theme, and Alexandria, with an Egyptian theme. Meals are served with fine silverware and china and the service is excellent. The food is attractively presented and the desserts stand out. There is a two-seating fixed dining system in the restaurants, and dress codes are enforced both in the dining rooms and in the main bars in the evenings. Alternatively, dine at the 24-hour less formal French bistro-style Café Bordeaux (with a cover charge at dinner). Casual buffet fare is found at the Orangery, and fast-food items at the pool’s Sidewalk Café.

Pennant Bar, overlooking the ship’s wake on the Lido deck, morphs into Pennant Grill (pay extra) at sunset. There are many themed lounges and bars throughout the ship. For drinks before the theatre call at Andersons. For Champagne the place to relax is Charlies, to soft piano accompaniment. The Crows Nest, high up on the Sun Deck, has a stylish cocktail bar, amazing views, and sunsets to piano accompaniment. Sample chocolates and specialty coffees at Raffles Bar. Afternoon tea is served daily.

Entertainment
Carmens is the entertainment centre for sophisticated cabaret and comedy. The Curzon Theatre presents production shows on its giant stage, and every performance has the feel of a West End theatre. The in-house Headliners Production Company features outstanding song-and-dance presentations superbly produced for each P&O ship at its Southampton studios. The Playhouse is used for lectures, excellent port enhancement talks, classical recitals, and evening block-buster cinema. Masquerade is the top-of-the-range nightclub. Watch sporting events on TVs and amidst sporting memorabilia at Champions. For solitude retire to the library, writing room or card tables. Ballroom fans can select from four large wooden dance floors. Teachers are on hand for dance, as also are computer instructors in the Cyber study.

The Oasis Spa and Salon offer a full range of services including sauna and steam rooms, and are adjacent to a modern high-tech and well-supervised gymnasium. The sports court beneath the funnel hosts a range of ball games for individual or tournament play. The golf simulator challenges you to a round on some of the world’s greatest golf courses. There are three outdoor pools and four whirlpools. Aurora is a family-oriented ship. Decibels is the entertainment hub for teens, with arcade games, non-alcoholic bar and disco. Intergalactica and Quarterdeck for the pre-teens has it all – computers, Playstations, jukeboxes, Internet stations, and organised games. Toybox is for the little ones. If you want a little quiet time after a full day, the Night Nursery babysitting facility will assist. This vessel (and P&O Line) has been recommended as “Best for ex-UK Cruises”.
