Cruises on board Aurora

P&O's Aurora is a classic ship. Christened in April 2000 by Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal in Southampton, Aurora is still one of P&O’s finest vessels with an elegant tiered stern and long bow. One of Aurora's highlights is the Atrium centrepiece water feature.

Aurora was renovated in April 2019 and is now an adult-only vessel. Not only was the exterior of the ship spruced up with a new look, Aurora's interior was completely overhauled.

From a great range of bars to a cinema, a theatre and three swimming pools - Aurora has something for everyone. Get on board and let Aurora cruise you away to so many fantastic destinations including the Caribbean, Europe and the world.
