Aurora

Aurora was the first ship in the P&O Cruises fleet to receive the new livery design as a part of its £26 million pound makeover in winter 2015. As well as receiving the new-look design with a contemporary version of the Union Flag on her bow and new blue funnels with rising sun designs, Aurora had an interior overhaul.

Aurora is a classic ocean going vessel with an elegant tiered stern and long bow. At her heart is a water feature which forms the centrepiece of her atrium - one of her signature features.
