The P&O Aurora is neither small nor large and its mid-size attracts many families. However her largest passsenger-base is older Brits who appreciate a traditional cruise. These passengers are largely retired and have the luxury of time that allows them to enjoy a world cruise for instance on a ship like this.
The centrepiece of the Aurora cruise ship is the waterfall inside the atrium. The water resembles a beautiful wall of glass that is reminiscent of an enormous piece of Lalique glass. Other than this unique feature, the ship has a very traditional design. The wide teak decks are perfect for a daily walk or run. There is one pool just for the families and another that can be covered in case of rain or colder weather.
There are two main restaurants onboard this ship, a Marco Pierre White bistro and an outdoor grill-style restaurant. There are a number of bars that offer a variety of themes. From the Crow's Nest Bar passengers can relax and enjoy the views of each port as well as sweeping panoramas of ocean. There is a sports bar and the sophisticated Anderson's with its panelled wood walls. You can move from the sports bar into its attached casino to enjoy some friendly gambling.
Entertainment options onboard the Aurora include the Playhouse cinema showing the best of newly released films. There is live entertainment in the Curzon Theatre or in Carmen's Lounge. Carmen's entertainment is popular with the older passengers. The entertainment includes song and dance numbers and also comedians to provide a laugh.
The spa is called the Oasis and has a free sauna and steam room and offers a variety of health and beauty treatments. Enjoy a massage, facial, or a body wrap among other choices. There is also a hairdressing salon and a small gym below the spa with exercise equipment and classes. Click to see the Aurora Itineraries
