So glad you enjoyed your cruise and have posted a positive review (there have been a few negative ones about our beloved Aurora lately) We are booked on the Ventura (1st time for this ship) in April Enjoy your future cruising.
I too am very pleased to see a positive review about Aurora. We were on her in August for 16 nights and could not find a fault. I could not believe that standards had dropped to the extent some of the reviewers were reporting in such a short time. We also agree that the new menus give more choice and we think they are better than the old ones. You just cannot please some people who are set in there ways. Enjoy your future cruises.
A canny review. We Geordies don't suffer fools but we are not wingers either. An excellent review. We have cruised on most P& O ships and Aurora is now our favourite. Although not in the first flush of youth we enjoy the vibrancy that young people and children bring to a cruise, and so never book 'adults only'. Even so very surprised at the average age on Christmas cruises.

We thought this may be because it was a 15 day cruise and not 2, 10 day cruises as before. I have not heard anything about the Oriana cruise which was longer, although she is adult only now. There certainly were fewer children than we expected. Perhaps with money being tight, It was just too expensive for families.
