Main dining options on Aurora

All of the dining options and menus below are included in the price of your holiday

Medina restaurant xx


Freedom Dining at the Medina Restaurant.


Like to escape the usual routine on holiday? Then you’ll love the flexibility of Freedom Dining. Opt for an early dinner one night and a late supper the next; you can shape each day as you please.

With Freedom Dining you'll still enjoy the special ambience and sociable atmosphere of a main dining room, with a five-course menu (six-course on Gala Nights). The difference from Club Dining is that this option allows you the flexibility to turn up at selected restaurants anytime you choose between 6pm and 9.30pm, with whom you like, and every effort will be made to accommodate you. Freedom Dining is included in your fare when you book a Select Price. Just opt for it when making your Select Price booking.

At P&O Cruises we believe great holidays should be all about choice and freedom.

No matter what time of day it is, if you fancy a good meal you'll always get one on board Aurora. Our main self-service restaurant offers high quality dining throughout the day in a relaxed, informal environment. So if you've just returned to the ship after a shore excursion and have worked up a late afternoon appetite you can still enjoy a great meal.


Dine around the clock - Late night snacks are available from buffet restaurants from 10pm until late. The menu for these late night buffet options changes each day however, examples may include: self-service sandwich bar, ready-made paninis, homemade cakes, biscuits and pastries.


This dining option is included in the price of your holiday.

Sindhu xx


Sindhu showcases the cuisine of twice Michelin-starred Atul Kochhar in spectacular style. 

Inspired by his Indian heritage and his pioneering menu at his Michelin-starred restaurant Benares in London, Atul celebrates authentic Indian favourites and gives them a British twist. Forget overwhelming spices, Atul's creations, such as pan-roasted beef tenderloin, spiced mash, garlic spinach purée and masala sauce, champion locally sourced seasonal ingredients and delicate fusions of flavour. Every dish at Sindhu is prepared and presented by expert chefs, many of whom have been trained by Atul on board. The beauty of the food is complemented by Sindhu’s sumptuous interior décor for an experience that delights your senses at every turn..
