With appr. 1,800 berths, cruiseship ‘Aurora’ is a medium-size cruiseship with an estimated $375 million construction cost in 2000 at Meyer Wherf in Papenburg, Germany. During her retrofit in 2014, her funnel was painted blue (originally yellow) and the British Union Jack colors were painted on the bow of the vessel. The vessel has been designed and built to appeal and service the British market, and, to that extent, she resembles in many way a traditional ocean liner vessel.
