  1. Hols4 Selbourne we had C248 last month on Aurora and did get noise on the one morning of tendering at Sorento. I think any cabin towards the aft of the ship will hear the davids but it hasn't put us off booking on C deck as the rest of the time it is quite and near the centre lifts which is convenient for getting most places.I We always book C deck mid to aft balcony on Aurora.
  2. Hols4 The large new tv's picture quality is still poor, I think it is more to do with the signal the ship receives rather than the tv itself.
  3. Hols 4 Just got off Aurora this morning after 18 sunny days. There was a hold up getting off due to the dock and baging area flooding. The ship didn't look much different apart from New carpets in most areas and new seating in the bars and Raffles coffee bar which has more seating and a brighter carpet. The Curzon theatre hasn't been updated and the acts on this cruise were poor in my opinion.The food in Meridian restaurant was good and the service was quick.There have been a few comments about the captain's funny comments on this website,we and a lot of other passengers found him quite witty. I don't know why we docked at El Farrel instead of nearby La Corona as it had very little to offer cheaper to dock there I expect.We still like Aurora but some of the Ports we called at were poor.
  4. Hols 4 You also get a free cake or pastry with your coffee !
  5. Hols4 You can buy even the smallest item in Norway with your card,papers,sweets etc. I was jokingly told by a shopkeeper they prefer card payment because no one can add up in Norway !
  6. Hols4 We were lucky to dock right in the harbour on Oceana,we wanted to go to casino square and caught the frequent town service bus which is only a couple Euros.
  7. Hols4 We did the people mover and vaporetto,it is Line 1 you need to get.
  8. Hols4 We have had cabin D110 there times and the view is not a problem for us and it was near the lifts.Also if the boat starts sinking you can jump straight into a lifeboat ! (Joke).
  9. Hols4 My wife likes going to the gym on Aurora while I do 4 or 5 laps of the promenade deck,(3.2 laps is 1 mile).Only trouble is after a few laps I start daydreaming and forget how many laps I have done.Looking forward to our 4th cruise on Aurora our favourite ship end of May to the Med and the changes they have made.
  10. Hols4 Princes Pete you mentioned the group Caravan were on Oriana and were good.They used to be in Aurora for years and we always enjoyed their music, I hope they return to Aurora after Oriana goes as we used to prefer to watch them than some of the shows in the evening.
  11. Hols4 There are changing rooms on Lido deck next to the grab and go, handy for the outside Riviera pool and the inside covered pool.
  12. Hols4 If I remember rightly they are Doew Egberts or Nescafe,also decaf
  13. Hols4 Arcadia has left Southampton so they must have fixed it.
  14. I've noticed Arcadias departure from Southampton has been out back to 0600 on Monday wonder if she has a problem as well ?
  15. Hols4 Has anyone seen in the news today that Venice is bringing in a landing charge for short stay visitors and targeting cruise ship passengers from 2.50 euros up to 10 euros at peak times ?
