As you are probably aware Cafe Bordeaux has a new dinner menu from Marco White. For short cruises (7 days or less) this has a charge of £7-50 in the evenings, for longer cruises the cost is £4-99 (approx). Breakfast and lunch can still be taken there.

Hi, Glad to hear Cafe Bordeaux is as good as we enjoyed it on our last cruiseon Aurora. It's much better than the small 'Alfresco' on Oriana .We are also looking forward to World Cruise on her in January, so see you there!!

Hi, I was on Aurora for the weekender last week and ate lunch in Cafe B on Sunday (the day we were in Zeebrugge) The menu for breakfast and lunch is fairly similar to what was on offer before although there is now a daily chef's special dish (main course) which attracts a £2:50 suppliment. There is also a daily soup available. Evening service as an MPW venue is from 5:30pm to 10:30pm and the suppliment is £7:75 with additional suppliments for certain steak or fish dishes. It really is very good and I had a very nice luncheon without feeling rushed or over fed (and I had starter, main course and dessert). Well worth the changes and I am hoping the changes to Cafe Jardin on Oceana are as tasteful and restrained. I was told by Peter Toms (restaurant manager who oversaw the conversion of both venues) and he said the changes on Oceana are aimed at beingtheame as on Aurora. Feebee_71.

I have just returned from a 16 night cruise on the Aurora, and regret to say the Cafe Bordeaux experience was one not to be repeated. We went for breakfast and found the menu to be very limited. The waiters were the most miserable bunch I have yet encountered. A cheery smile was met with an icy stare. They were slow and reluctant to serve, and no offer was made to refresh tea or toast. Empty crockery was ignored and the rush to vacate the area on the stroke of the shift was like watching a football stadium empty after a match. Having said that, the food although a little short on bulk, was excellent.

By Gail Ryan

How Much?Last week, out of the blue, I woke up on Friday morning with horrendous back pain.I tried to brave it out, taking pain killers and clamping a hot water bottle to my back! but nothing was working. I am not one for going to see my Doctor, in fact, before my visit on Friday, I had not been in over 2 years, so imagine my shock when I was given my prescription and my Daughter went to the Chemist to get it filled – 25.00!!I admit, I was vaguely aware that the costs of medicines had ...
