    Does size matter?

    In 1984 we started small, I mean very small, less than 200 passengers, loved It. After a bit we gradually moved up the spectrum until we reached , The Brilliance of the Seas, We decided that this was the max size for us. However we did eventually rise up to Ventura,hated it, so as we had also moved down a number of times to small and smaller Fred Olsen, Swan Hellenic and Voyager. Fell in love with Minerver2 as it was able to go anywhere. When it was sold to Carnival and became P&O's Adonia, we thought, Great. What a disappointment. It was still a beautiful ship but P&O had no idea ab

    I have cruised twice on Azura, but each time found the outside deck space very crowded on sea days. I also found the bars to be extremely busy.

I am a regular on Aurora and nothing beats her size and welcoming feel in my mind - but everyone has different priorities and favourites.
