Cabin: Outside Stateroom with Shower
Traveled with children

The Aurora is a lovely ship. The facilities are excellent.The kids club "The Reef" was a real stand out for us as our children loved it and wanted to be there all the time it was open. The staff in the Reef were really wonderful with the children and the activities and programs kept them busy and happy. This really made the holiday such a good one for everyone in the family!

We had a four berth outside cabin and it was a delight. We loved the biscuits and the tea kettle. We found that the storage space was really good - we had a lot of luggage to store. We didn't feel cluttered or crowded. The toiletries in the shower were high quality. Our cabin steward was fantastic. So obliging and polite. She was a great source of knowledge and our cabin always was kept to a very high standard.

We ate on the freedom dining plan and we found the meals in the Medina restaurant were of a very high standard. We also ate at the Lido grill for lunch and Horizons for breakfast and of course the children's buffet each night. We think the food was excellent in all the venues. We ate at Sindhu one evening and it really was a five star experience. So tasty, so beautifully presented, such attentive staff. We also ate at the Glasshouse, and tried one of their wine flights each. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the food was tasty and we had a really wonderful waitress. The wine flight was a definite must try. We thought it was a great overall dining experience.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Shower

Cabin LB

Great cabin. Well appointed. Nice toiletries. Great towels. With 2 adults & 2 children sharing we could have been crowded but we weren't due to the good sized wardrobes and under bed storage.

The cabin was modern and kept to a very high standard by our steward.
