In January this year my husband and I set on on an epic adventure on P&O Cruises Aurora to do the whole world cruise arriving home on 24th April. We had done a long cruise before so knew what we were letting ourselves in for and how relaxing the whole trip would be.

Our main reasons for this journey were that we wanted to go to China, Japan and Vietnam and certainly the last 2 did not disappoint but China left us a little cold, although we can now say that we have walked on the Great Wall. The Japanese were very friendly and it was quite easy to get around on your own without doing a ship tour but Vietnam was the worst traffic jam you could imagine but still beautiful.

Another plus on this journey for us was that we could meet my husband's niece in Brisbane and her son in Auckland so we enjoyed some real family time too.

There was lots going on the whole time on the ship from classes on bridge, painting, line dancing, ballroom dancing and crafts to workshops on learning how to sing, gym for exercise and lots more. In the evenings there were cabaret shows and films to watch or ballroom and disco dancing if you were a little more energetic.

You could eat virtually all day long and there was something to suit all diets.

We were very lucky with the weather as we expected extremes from the South Pacific to China but we only had two wet days and sunshine most of the way.

Our outside cabin was quite adequate and had plenty of storage space and our cabin steward was extremely friendly.

You could have joined this cruise at many ports along the way and indeed in Australia some locals joined just for a few days but we were so lucky to do the whole trip and to arrive home relaxed and happy, lighter in pocket but not on the waistline and the bonus…. the family they had missed us!
