New ship name reveled by Stephen Mulhern in a unique way

Unless you have been oblivious to the cruise news of the last few months, you may not know that P&O are set to launch their new mega-ship in 2020.

On Thursday 24th May 2018, P&O kept us all waiting to announce the new name after over 30,000 people sent name suggestions in on what their new lady should be called.

An in a very different way to other ship name reveals, they had the help of TV’s very own Stephen Mulhern to help reveal the name all with a bit of magic…

So What do you all think of the name? P&O Iona, it certainly is different from the rest of the fleet.

Iona is an Island in Scotland and Paul Ludlow, Senior Vice President of P&O Cruises explains that the beautiful island which you can see the sea from every advantage is a true reflection of what this new ship will bring.


Let me tell you as much as I can about Iona and what she will bring to P&O:

  • Iona will be the largest P&O ship in the UK, arriving in 2020
  • She will exceed 180,000 gross tons
  • Iona will accommodate approximately 5,200 guests
  • Iona will be P&O’s most environmentally efficient ship yet
  • She will have an uninterrupted half-mile promenade deck
  • A major new entertainment hub called the Dome
  • Iona will have 15 places to eat and 10 places to enjoy a drink and see the sea
  • 13 entertainment venues from the theatre to adult only venues
  • She will be on sale in autumn 2018
