Because the Aurora was built specifically for the British market you will find that it is just like your home, 240 volt three pin sockets. There is usually two sockets located above the dressing table, so it usually pays to take a 1-2 or 1-3 plug adaptor as there is always the mobile phone or camera battery that needs charging just when the misses whats to use her hair tongs! Happy cruising.

Watch out for the hair tongs/straighteners they can set off the smoke alarm try to use them in the bathroom as this is not covered. A lot of people carry a short extension lead .

You try telling her to use her tongs in the bathroom! It would probably be the first AND LAST thing you ever suggested to her! An extention lead sounds interesting though. Especially one of those with the six sockets at one end? Happy cruising.

By Richard Smith

The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
