Yes a wheelchair collision could cause at least £1.23 damage to the stock. If the table was full.

BTW I thought Aurora did have some motorised doors to the Prom deck. But I may be wrong. Someone on board recently and paying more attention may be able to confirm or correct me.

The table is with more.

Just run that door question past Mrs S and she can't recall any motorised doors to the prom deck.

Well auto prom deck doors or not, we have decided to try Aurora and just pre registered for a 19 day W Med cruise at the end of April 2019. So I hope we like the old girl.

Aurora remains our favourite among the older ships. I think you'll love her Towny. (Crosses fingers)

I do hope you're right Merv, but unless we try her we are never going to know, and with launch and Peninsular cruise discounts the price looks very attractive indeed, well better than usual for Aurora which generally commands premium prices.

I've booked Azura for September 2019. By that time, it will be six years since we last sailed on her

Don't want to disillusion you too much but the butler is not responsible for biscuits, that is down to you cabin steward - just like everyone else :lol: :lol:

We did look at one cruise for 2019 but it didn't exactly blow us away with it's itinerary and price so won't be bothering with any advance bookings.

Anyway, we already have our Celebrity cruise in four weeks time and P&O Britannia for next year already booked. That's enough for us to be going on with.

Well the deposit is now paid for our Aurora Med cruise at the end of April 2019, it looks as though this will be only its second cruise after its 2 week refit in March. We might see some new carpets and soft furnishings, and hopefully some new bigger screen TVs.

Got confirmation this morning of our cruise in June 2019 on Ventura. Booked a suite for a special birthday, so looking forward to the perks.

Hopefully the butler will be able to keep up with the cleaning of all my shoes!!

You don't have your own personal butler - he will have the shoes of another 10 or 12 suites to look after as well :o :o :o

Prices already increasing by £100pp across all grades on our cruise, if you are checking your's don't be fooled by the headlind prices, do a dummy booking and you will be able to see if they have gone up.

As a special treat we booked a suite this time, albeit only for 7 nights.

So we'll spend the next two years trying to think of jobs for the butler.

I don't think darning your socks is one of them.
