    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.

    Excellent review, we have good friends who work on Aurora and keep saying we must cruise with them but havent had the opportunity, they have been on Aurora for many years so thats speaks volumes.

    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.

    • Bryson, Whitley Bay - Commented on a comment by Geordie (25 Jan 12 23:10)

      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.

    Beautiful Bruges -Going It Alone

    By Collette Apak

    If you’ve ever been on a mini cruise from the UK with any of the cruise lines there’s a very high chance that Bruges would be one of your ports of call. With it’s geographical proximity to the UK it appears on most itineraries that are less than a week.Personally I have visited Bruges several times just for the day and I absolutely love the place. That could well be something to do with all the chocolate shops and cherry beer! But there is more to the city than just confecti...

    With Hurricane Matthew having torn its way across the Caribbean and the Florida coast and and Typhoon Haima raging in the Far East, many Cruise ships had to seek shelter in port or re-route to avoid it as well as hotels having to batten down the hatches causing holiday misery for many.It begs the question of how safe is your holiday?Over my 30 years in travel I have seen many disasters that have affected the travel plans of hundreds of people, like 9-11, The Icelandic Volcano, many weather ev...
