P & O Aurora Outside Cabin E121 - LC Grade

We booked an Iberian cruise only a few weeks before we sailed on a saver basis i.e. cheap.

We found ourselves on Ellora deck (6) in cabin E121. It was situated forward on the starboard side and was very conveniently placed for us.

The theatre, MDRs and some of the bars are on Deck 7 and the rest of the public areas, apart from the pools and buffet restaurant are on Deck 8.

Image

The cabin was spacious, with 2 double wardrobes, a sofa, usual size shower room with a shower curtain rather than screen.
I was impressed with the White Company toiletries and of course, a kettle with tea and coffee provided.

Thank you, cabin looks really comfortable and spacious Jill. Very impressed with the treats from White Company! 8-)
I really dislike those clip on wardrobe hangers. Why can ships / hotels not use ones that are simple to use? :?

I agree Chris. Apart from anything else, they take up more room than ordinary hangers; plus being short, I struggle with them.

I always take my own these days as they are much easier to handle. I guess that they are there to stop people stealing them. :roll:

Thanks Jill for the pics of your cabin!
Mmmmm! We'd struggle to get 5 into that cabin, unless there are similar one that have 2 pull down bunks and 1 child on the sofa :think: (although that looks a bit narrow!).

I notice no product placement on your photos to compete with the White Company - deodorant brand name cleverly obstructed :roll:

Actually Tom, there were two drop down bunks available but the sofa was not big enough even for a child to sleep on.

As for the products............ That was plunky's deodorant and he buys the cheapest available; come that, so do I. ;)

No Jim- We got allocated an outside straight away and I still don't know why. :?

Oddly enough, we are getting 12 days on Oceana in January for the same price as we paid on Aurora but for an inside.

The ship was definitely not full so maybe that is why they filled the outsides first.

I'm still a steerage class girl at heart. :lol:
