About P&O Cruises
P&O Cruises has been well known and loved in the UK for 175 years. Since 2015, the cruise line has also become increasingly established on the German market. Guests appreciate the traditional high sea experience with a typically British flair. Knowledge of the English language is important to get on board. The fleet of P&O Cruises is child friendly, except the M / S Arcadia, M / S Aurora and the M / S Oriana that are ships for adults only. The board currency on all ships is the British pound.
The mid-sized M / S Aurora was built in the Meyer Shipyard in Germany and made its maiden voyage in 2000 and was last modernized in 2014. In April 2019, Aurora expanded the cruise line's "adults-only" fleet and operates exclusively as an adult only ship. Thanks to the elegantly stepped tail, the ship is always easy to recognize. On a length of 270 m and with 10 passenger decks the M/S Aurora can accommodate up to 1874 passengers. Inside, the three-storey atrium with an elaborate waterfall forms the heart of the ship. A wide selection of bars, diverse entertainment options and a comprehensive restaurant offer leaves nothing to be desired.
Aboard the Aurora, all common cabin categories are available, from the inside cabin to the suite. The cabins are spacious and modern, with a TV, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and other amenities. The single beds can be converted into a king size bed. The inside and outside cabins are 14-17 m² in size, the balcony cabins have a size of about 20-23 m² including a balcony, while the suites with a balcony measure between 35 and 53 m². Especially for single travelers the single outside cabins with a size of approx. 14 m² are very popular.
