A mid-sized fancy

Aurora is a compact mid-sized cruise liner, immediately identifiable due to her elegantly tiered stern. Along with her sister ship Oriana, Aurora has the capacity to take her anywhere in the world.

Waterfalls, bars, lounges, cinemas ...

Her grand centrepiece is a Lalique-inspired waterfall that will stun newly arrived guests when they stroll through her atrium, and this is just one of her signature features. There is a bar to suit whatever takes your evening fancy, and if you like a view try Aurora's Crows Nest bar - especially when cruising into a new port. There's also the Champions sports bar for those who wish to catch up on the latest score, and the wood-panelled Anderson's bar, with a slight British flavour.

Be entertained at the Playhouse cinema with the latest blockbuster, and the theatre and show lounge are a definite must-see. To stimulate your palate try Aurora's two main dining venues, legendary chef Marco Pierre White's bistro, and the al fresco grill restaurant. 

… and fresh air!

Aurora will also exercise you as well as entertain, with a broad promenade deck that winds around her entire circumference - perfect for jogging or that evening stroll. Aurora also caters for families with children with dedicated kids clubs and a family pool, including one that can be sheltered by a sky dome.
