The Aurora

P&O Cruises has announced that the Aurora will return from its March 2019 refit as an adult-only ship.

From 8th April next year, Aurora will join Arcadia and Oriana as a ship exclusively for adults, offering a ‘relaxed way of life’, stylish surroundings and a variety of bars and lounges for socialising.

According to the cruise line, the decision has been made based on ‘extensive research and guest feedback’.

P&O Cruises’ senior vice president, Paul Ludlow, said: “All our ships have the signature elements of dining, service and great destinations. However, P&O Cruises is all about choice, whether our guests want the fantastic range of activities and children’s clubs on our family-friendly ships or prefer the peace and serenity of our adult-only ships.

“With Aurora becoming a ship exclusively for adults, we are offering our guests even more choice which means they can choose the holiday experience that is absolutely the right one for them.”

Aurora is a mid-size ship that offers activities including yoga, pilates and dance classes; evening entertainment such as theatre shows, bands, comedy and cabaret performances; and a pool.

There is also a cinema on board, a late night music venue called Masquerade, and the chance to dress up with black tie evenings throughout your cruise.

Following its refit next year, Aurora will sail to the Mediterranean, Norwegian Fjords, and the Canary Islands. The ship will also sail a number of transatlantic USA and Canada cruises. Cruise excursions range from leisurely sightseeing to adventurous activities.
