Cruise Search

You might be lucky enough to get the same cabin that we had when we sailed onboard Aurora. We too had to make a late booking due to a family bereavement and subsequent holiday cancellation. We just managed to get one of the last available cabins, which was an inside right up in the bows. Since we usually book an inside cabin anyway, we were perfectly happy with this. The good news is that you will not be bothered by engine noise or vibration from the propellers! Our cruise was a canaries one at the end of November. As you can imagine, the sea was not at its calmest at that time of year? You can, surprise surprise, hear the waves smashing against the bow (and, of course, feel it also in extream circumstances). You will also be woken by the anchor being dropped if you are in a tender port that day! You will also have exclusive notification of the ship leaving when you hear it being raised again! None of this bothered us in the slightest, and we both had a great cruise. Happy cruising.
