Review of Aurora

Launched in 2001, Aurora is one of the larger P and O ships, and similar in size to Oriana and Oceana. The refit in 2014 made ms Aurora the first of all PO cruise ships with the line's new hull livery - the Union Jack flag.

History - construction & ownership

P&O Cruises is based at Carnival House in Southampton, UK, operated by Carnival UK and owned by Carnival Corp. & plc. This British-American cruise line was originally a constituent of Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company. P and O Cruises is the world's oldest cruise line, having operated the first passenger ships in early 19th century. It is sister company of P&O Cruises Australia. P and O Cruises was de-merged from P&O group in 2000, and became a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises, which in 2003 merged with Carnival Corp. to form Carnival Corp. & plc. PO Cruises currently operates eight ships with a total guest capacity of 14,970 and 5% market share of worldwide cruise lines. Its most recent ship, mv Britannia, joined the fleet in March 2015.

The 76,152-ton, 1,874-passenger cruise ship Aurora operates some of the best luxury ship cruises from England, with cheap affordable cruises from UK ports. This one is among the most family friendly cruise ships in UK, featuring the PO Aurora World cruise deals from Southampton by the UK best cruise line. One of the best England cruise ships, P&O Aurora serves predominantly the British market, with a great variety of itineraries (mainly in Europe). With her classic design and tiered stern, she is more similar to the traditional ocean liners, and just like “the good old ones”, she offers sheer luxury, premium cruising experiences, stylish entertainment, and 5-star hotel amenities. The PO Aurora cruise ship reviews often recommend this vessel and its itineraries as presenting the best and cheap options for birthday celebrations and wedding anniversaries at sea, small family reunions, and for spending quality family time together.

Cruise itinerary program

Aurora itinerary program is based on cruises from Southampton (UK), including a "World Cruise", roudtrips to the Caribbean (Transatlantic crossings), Baltic and Mediterranean, as well as "mini cruises" from UK to Belgium.

  • ms Aurora cruise ship was built in Germany at the cost of 380 million dollars. The vessel was specifically designed to appeal to the UK cruising market. Since British travelers are more attracted by traditionally looking ships, the vessel's hull and superstructure as design resembles the ocean liners of the past. The basics for the ship's design were taken from the mv Oriana project, but were largely extended and many onboard features (like cabins and facilities) were improved.
  • A most unfortunate event in mv Aurora's history happened at the very beggining of its service. The vessel's royal godmother Princess Anne failed to shatter the champagne bottle in the hull during the christening ceremony in Southampton. And many blamed this for the cancelled Maiden Voyage (May 1, 2000) when due to a serious technical problem the Inaugural cruise to the Mediterranean was cancelled after only 16 hrs at sea. The ship was taken out of service for drydock repairs, and the passengers refund/compensation package cost P&O UK about GBP 6 million. Aurora returned to service 2 weeks later.
  • mv Aurora was christened on April 27, 2000, by godmother HRH The Princess Royal. The list of other P and O cruise ships named by British Royals includes Oriana (April 6, 1995, by HM The Queen), Britannia (March 10, 2015, by HM The Queen) and the ships Oceana and Adonia (both named on May 21, 2003, by HRH The Princess Royal and her daughter Zara Phillips).
  • The list of P&O World Cruise ships, besides Aurora also includes mv Arcadia.
