In March completed 46 night (Auckland-Southampton) sector of P&O Aurora World Cruise. Each sector of approximately 17-21 nights is also sold as a fly cruise so there is a repetition of menus, activities etc. You are likely to encounter rough seas in different areas of the World Cruise. You are crossing huge areas of ocean and weather is unpredictable. You also have several sections of 5 days at sea with no ports. We were quite unlucky with rough seas and wet weather. You may not be. Dress code was as detailed in the brochure and was followed by staff. We saw a jacketless gentleman being refused entry to dining room on an Informal Night when jackets were specified. On Formal Nights most gentlemen wore dinner suits and minority others wore dark suits. Ladies wore a more varied selection from balldresses, cocktail dresses, evening type trouser suits but all were elegantly dressed. Casual nights were really smart casual (no trainers, track suits etc). Check with brochure and government health web site about vaccinations. You will also need to buy visas for some countries eg Australia, India. This adds to cost and has to be organised by you, not P&O, although they do give you information about how to get them. Cannot comment on your probable enjoyment. This was my 21st cruise although previous longest was 22 nights and I felt my future maximum would be 30 days. Some cruisers were on their 15th and more full World Cruise and had already booked for 2009, some were first time cruisers and loved it, some hated it. Would definitely not recommrnd a World Cruise as first ever cruise. Hope this information helps.
