It’s that time of year when the nights are getting darker earlier, and programmes such as Strictly come dancing and X Factor makes a return to our TV screens. I must admit I am a fan of Strictly and this year was secretly hoping Charlotte Hawkins would do well as she is local to me and we went to the same high school – although we were not in the same year, but alas it was not to be.
P&O Cruises have 4 Strictly Themed cruises next year so if you are a fan of the show and fancy meeting some of the pro dancers or seeing the outfits which were worn during the shows by the pros and celebrities then the following cruises would be ideal.
Azura – 13th April 2018, Ventura 11th May 2018, Britannia 03rd June 2018 and Azura 21st July 2018.
I sailed on a Strictly themed cruise 2 years ago to the Baltic and thought the Strictly theme enhanced the entertainment as along side the normal offering of quizzes and headliner shows, there was Strictly come dancing quizzes, dance masterclasses, the pro dancers had their own evening shows which each person on board has the opportunity to see, and not forgetting the passenger dance competition – which some people took very seriously. My partner will watch Strictly if its on and even he enjoyed the enhancements. Next year you will be able to pay for private one to one dance classes, and you will also be able to prebook to have dinner in one of the specialty restaurants hosted by one of the dancers.

Would you book specifically to sale on one of these cruises for the Strictly theme? Who are you rooting for in this years competition?
I am off on the Celebrity Eclipse on Wednesday for 5 nights – so have a great couple of weeks and I will let you know if my experience differs this time from my last encounter.
