Aurora under way

In the end Aurora was parked at her berth for several days while her bearing was fixed. The repairs seem to have been successful and she left at tea-time on Thursday (Auckland time). That’s several days later than scheduled so she’s now heading for San Francisco as fast as she can – her current World Cruise ‘sector’ ends there (and the next one begins, of course). There are a couple of Pacific island calls that have been cancelled; she’ll be a day late at Hawaii (which is still in the itinerary, it seems) and at San Francisco; and she may have to miss a call at Madeira in order to get back to Southampton on time, and to turn round and start her program of 2009 cruises.

But well done to the various engineers, both supplier and P&O, who worked on her in Auckland.
