P&O Launch 2020!

It’s almost Here!

The Brand New P&O Ship Iona is available to Pre-Book now!

The Ship which will hold 5200 passengers, the Largest in the P&O Fleet is set to rival some of its more adventurous competitors.

The Maiden Voyage will be on the 13th May 2020 when she will do a one-off 9 Night sailing to the Norwegian Fjords.  Following that she will do 7 Night Itineraries to the Fjords with slightly different itineraries on alternate weeks.

The ship although not going to some of the smaller Fjord ports will offer guests a chance on some Itineraries to hop off the ship in Hellesylt where they will be offered a range of more immersive excursions before re-joining the ship in Geirangerlater that day.

I know from the feedback I am getting that some customers are not happy that she will be only going to the Fjords all summer but with the emphasis on the Sea and seeing the Sea wherever you are on the ship, it should be perfect for the Stunning scenery the fjords have to offer.

What do you think about it?

In a nutshell, don’t delay if you want to book as this ship is very popular.

If you have travelled with P&O before you can take advantage of 10% early booking discount and even if you have not been with them before you will still get a newcomers discount of 5%.

In addition to this, you will get on-board credit and we have some free upgrade cabins as well so don’t leave it too long.

You can pre-register now for a low deposit of £1 per person and the rest of the deposit will be taken 8 weeks later, so this allows you to spread that initial payment a little. (Ask about terms and conditions)

If you pre-register we will secure your booking for you on the relevant launch date.

So here are the dates you need to know.
