Ship Amenities

Aurora features a smart layout to accommodate all of its leisure facilities, starting with a large swimming pool that doubles as an indoor and outdoor design thanks to its large, retractable glass dome. This means you can swim no matter the weather. There’s plenty of space to sunbathe on the extra-wide promenade deck, with a good number of cushioned sun loungers on hand. Inside the ship’s interior is a central atrium lobby where you’ll see an eye-catching fibreglass sculpture spanning 10.6 metres in height. Additional features to enjoy include Aurora’s 12 lounges and bars like the Crow’s Nest and mahogany-panelled Anderson’s. With a virtual reality games room, cinema, and lecture hall, the ship is well-equipped for daytime activities of every stripe!

Cabin Amenities

Passengers can select from five grades of accommodation, including interior or outside-view cabins, cabins with balconies, mini-suites with balconies and suites with balconies. At the premium end of the spectrum, there are two-level penthouses, and families can enjoy interconnecting rooms. Rooms with ocean views are bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling windows in some cabins.  All accommodation is smartly laid out with attractive cherry wood cabinetry, a personal safe, air conditioning, and a refrigerator. Additional features include a television and seating area with sofa and coffee table. Private bathrooms feature Egyptian cotton towels and complimentary toiletries, and coffee and tea making facilities are also on hand.

Dining Options

There are two main dining rooms to select from onboard the Aurora, including Moorish-themed Medina and Egyptian-themed Alexandria. Both feature the same selection of dining options, focusing on British and Continental standards. On gala evenings, you can enjoy a menu created by master chef Marco Pierre White, dining on Wedgwood china with Elkington silverware. Additional options include Indian-fusion cuisine designed by chef Atul Kochkar at Sindhu, or wine and menu pairings selected by Olly Smith at the Glasshouse. For casual, self-serve buffet dining with an ocean view visit the Orangery. Casual eateries like the Sidewalk Café, the Beach House, Champagne Bar, and Raffles coffee bar round out the selections here.


Evening entertainment focuses on cabaret acts, production shows, and primarily British big names. In addition to the theatre, you can visit the ship’s cinema or head to the array of bars and lounges for live music and dancing. From English pubs to Champagne bars, there’s something to suit all tastes!

Sports and Wellness

The Oasis Spa is located forward of the Crystal swimming pool, offering a quiet area for tranquillity and pampering. Treat yourself to a massage, beauty treatment, or visit the sauna and steam room to feel your cares melt away. There’s also a gym located here with modern equipment and an aerobics room where you can join a fitness class. Finally, when you’re ready to enjoy a moment of peace, head to the relaxation area and soak in the sun.

They give you a first class service, food and entertainment and are the best holidays we have ever had. Looking forward to our next cruise in 2020.


Aurora 2018.


By Golding, Basingstoke, 23rd Dec 2018

It was one of our most memorable holidays visiting many of the Italian Islands and the mainland. The weather was perfect and the chosen ports of call were outstanding.
