Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Aurora joined the P&O Cruises fleet in January 2000 and enjoyed a chic makeover in 2014. Aurora is one of P&O Cruises' mid-sized, family-friendly ships (exclusively for adults from April 2019). From its sleek exterior and amazing 35ft John Mills designed sculpture in the four-storey atrium, to the water-filled delights of the Crystal Pool with its clear-glass Skydome; Aurora is a true floating marvel. Days at sea open up a world of relaxation and activities galore. Sunbathe on a lounger by the water's edge or chill out in a bubbling whirlpool spa. Enjoy some downtime and top-to-toe treatments in the serenity of the Oasis Spa. Add activity to your day by practising your swing at the golf simulator or shape-up with a workout in the gym. Settle down with some popcorn and a drink in the cinema and enjoy the latest films on screen. There's also fun and games for the children in The Reef and splashing times in the paddling pool.
