About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Instantly recognizable with her elegantly tiered stern, the Aurora is a large resort ocean cruiser, designed for cruisers who prefer to embark and disembark in the United Kingdom. Offering good value for money, the traditional cruise format appeals to individuals, couples, families, and groups seeking worldwide destinations. Very British in atmosphere and ambience, the dining, entertainment and activities aboard are what one would expect from lively restaurants, theaters, and recreation hotspots found on U.K. shores. Families are welcome and can enjoy a special children’s program, club, and dedicated pool.
Aurora is a bit more formal than fleetmates Arcadia and Oceana but has superb facilities for children. Adjacent to the playroom and teen center, parents and kids have a dedicated area at the ship's stern with its own pool, hot tub, and table tennis area. There's even a bar nearby and waiter service for when you're thirsty. Aurora is so family-friendly that there’s even a baby monitor in every cabin. Not merely kid stuff, Aurora has much to offer for adults. Interiors are designed in such a way that spaciousness prevails, while public rooms are quite distinct.
The centerpiece of Aurora's impressive four-deck-high atrium is a lovely sculptural Lalique-inspired waterfall. Relaxation is easy in the comfortable surroundings of Anderson's, a mahogany- paneled lounge that has a fireplace. From the vantage point of the Crow's Nest, enjoy spectacular sunsets. Head to upper decks for a tennis court, golf simulator, and third pool with sky dome. Other facilities include a virtual reality arcade, broad teak promenade deck, 12 lounges/bars, and a comfortable cinema that doubles as a concert and lecture hall.
