  1. The price of cruises in school holiday time are far, far higher than the equivalent cruise in term time, so you could argue that provides a counter balance to the cheap deals available at other times of the year. But in reality does it matter? You pay a price you're happy to pay, buy a drinks package if you want(or not), etc, etc. Just be happy that you're still able to cruise and stop worrying about what other people are doing.
  2. Really sad news but not unexpected with Aurora being made adult only. She's been sold to a company operating cruises in China according to P&O. Our first cruise was for our honeymoon and it was on Oriana and we sailed on her a fair few times until she was made adult only, so lots of happy memories.
  3. When our daughter was young we did a number of term time cruises with a mostly adult only passenger profile on board. On those cruises we found the opposite to be true and the attitudes and behaviour of those so-called adults towards me and my family was nothing short of disgusting. The other families onboard also suffered similar treatment. These experiences are what form my view of the atmosphere onboard adult only ships not the age of the passengers. It is also the reason why I will never set foot on an adult only ship. We had some fantastic cruises on both Aurora and Oriana and I'm so sad that families will no longer have the opportunity to have that same experience.
  4. Really sad but not surprised to hear this news. Even though our DD is now an adult (only just though) we have no intention of ever sailing on an adult only ship. Looks like Aurora will now be out of bounds to us as well as Oriana (which is was our favourite ship). Sad times for us and another nail in the coffin for P&O as far our future sailings are concerned :(
