P&O Cruises have been a favourite for British passengers since they began way back in the 1850s. They have been a proud part of Carnival & PLC for the last 20 years, and have no connection to P&O Ferries.
They have 7 ships within their fleet and have a legion of loyal fans through their attention to the needs of their passengers and a focus on comfort. So here are our 8 reasons why you should book with P&O Cruises…
1 – Afternoon Tea
Enjoy the ultimate daytime indulgence with a twist. Eric Lanlard’s Afternoon Tea is one of the onboard experiences not to be missed. The master pâtissier has elevated the humble British tradition into an utterly decadent experience. A range of savoury and sweet treats adorn the cakestand, all served with a wide range of teas to suit any taste.
2 – Kids Clubs
There is no shortage of kids clubs and activities to keep the whole family happy onboard their ships. All five onboard clubs are completely free and staffed by fully qualified Reef Rangers that lead educational programmes, entertainment sessions and activities. The complimentary ‘Night Nursey’ is available to all ages and is open from 6pm to 2am, allowing parents to explore all nightlife on offer. Located in a quiet area of the ship, parents can be directly contacted via pager service giving complete peace of mind.
3 – Shuttle Buses
When in port you want to spend every minute of your time ashore, P&O help that happen. From pre-booked excursions to freely exploring your destination, P&O Cruises offer complimentary shuttle buses from port to your destination. Excluding Early Saver and Late Saver, in this case, the charge is minimal.
4 – Special Events
There isn’t a dull moment on a P&O Cruises. Daily events range from movies played at Ocean Studios, dance and fitness classes, cookery clubs and quizzes. At nighttime the fun doesn’t stop, there will be Black Tie evenings with five-course Gala menus, deck parties, themed nights and deck barbeques.
5 – Launch of Arvia
Arvia is P&O Cruises brand new ship and will launch in December 2022. It is currently being built at the Meyer shipyard in Germany.
