Exclusively for adults - Mid-sized Aurora is a world-class ship, bringing you the joys of classic cruise travel. In April 2019, she enjoyed a refit and started an exciting new chapter as a ship that caters exclusively for adults. With a skydome over her inviting Crystal Pool you’ll enjoy stylish surrounds whatever the weather. At her heart a 35 foot sculpture dominates the atrium while The Crow’s Nest offers panoramic views.
The ship can cater for the following diets; vegetarian, low /no fat, low salt /no salt, lactose intolerant /dairy free, gluten /wheat free /celiac, low cholesterol, diabetic, kosher and vegan. Passengers requiring any of the above diets should contact the Customer Contact Centre prior to their cruise.
Fully accessible adapted cabins and suites are available, which are suitable for wheelchair / mobility scooter users. Passengers with a disability which may affect their mobility onboard are asked to inform the Customer Contact Centre prior to their cruise. Assisted embarkation and disembarkation is available when sailing from Southampton.
As with UK laws, the age limit for purchase and consumption of alcohol on board is 18 years of age, however, when in US waters, the age limit increases to 21.
Passengers must be over the age of 18 to use the spa facilities including treatments. If you are under the age of 18 and if you would like a treatment then you will need to be accompanied by an adult.
The ship operates three styles of dress code: Smart, Evening Casual and Black Tie.
On Smart evenings ladies typically wear tailored trousers and separates or even a stylish dress, while men are in a shirt and trousers with a jacket, such as a blazer or sports jacket, or a suit and tie if they wish. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Smart evenings.
Stylish resort or leisurewear is ideal for Evening Casual nights, for example casual separates or dresses for ladies and open-neck polo shirts and casual trousers (not shorts) for men. A jacket and smart trousers can be worn but are not compulsory. Smart dark denim is also fine, but not trainers, football shirts or tracksuits. For a typical two week cruise on Azura, Britannia, Oceana or Ventura there are normally ten Evening Casual nights. On Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Oriana there are normally six Evening Casual nights.
Black Tie nights (also known as Gala Evenings)add a touch of glamour and a real sense of occasion to evenings at sea. Ladies wear glamorous evening wear including cocktail dresses, ball gowns or even smart trouser suits. For men, dinner jackets or tuxedos are the norm, but a dark lounge or business suit and tie can be worn as an alternative. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Black Tie evenings on board.
During the day casual shirts, shorts, trousers and beachwear are ideal.
There are dedicated areas onboard where smoking is permitted. Smoking is not permitted in any public room, inside cabin or on cabin balconies.
Guests onboard Aurora may smoke on the port side and aft outer deck on decks:
Electronic cigarettes, including those which do not emit smoke, can be used in designated smoking areas only.
Although we recognise that electronic cigarettes are not covered by the UK legislation we have taken the decision to prohibit their use in all public areas and cabins in the same way as real cigarettes for the benefit of all of our guests

At 105 feet above the waterline, this stylish cocktail bar is higher than the bridge and affords the ship's most amazing views. By day you can watch the glistening sea as the world floats by in this comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. As evening draws in The Crow's Nest comes into its own; with a light tickling of the ivories to set the mood, there's no better vantage point from which to enjoy a dramatic sunset at sea.
If you just want to socialise, catch up with friends over a few bevvies, or carry off the cup in a pub quiz, touch down in Champions. For lovers of all things sporting, it's a slam dunk. It's the place to enjoy a drink while celebrating all things great about British sport.

The bar is named after Arthur Anderson, the founder of P&O, who is said to have had an amazing attention to detail.
