Cruises on board the Aurora

The Aurora is a classic. Christened in April 2000 by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal in Southampton, this ship is one of P&O’s finest vessels with an elegant tiered stern and long bow. A signature feature of the Aurora is her water feature which forms the centerpiece of her atrium. It received a new livery design by P&O in winter of 2015 as part of a 26 million pound makeover. Not only does the exterior of the ship have a new-look design, but the ship has also had a complete interior overhaul. From a range of bars to a cinema, a theatre and three swimming pools, the Aurora has something for all of the family. The Aurora graces the water of a number of destinations including the , the USA and Canada.
