The ship itself is stunning. It's beautiful, tasteful, classy but contemporary in its design and despite its size, we never felt like we were in huge, open area's.

Been on many cruises with different companies but this is my favourite ship. It’s been made for the British which I love. Will go again with P&O cruises in future. Thanks for fab holiday.

There is plenty to do on a P&O Cruises ship, morning, noon and night!
Every P&O Cruises ship has swimming pools, spas, saunas, salons, a gym, golf nets, a library, dance classes and shops. As well as all this you can entertain yourself with an outdoor SeaScreen cinema, Music Festivals at Sea and Spotlight enrichment programmes which give you a chance to listen to a famous speaker. Whether you want to be relaxed or entertained - the choice is yours.
In the evening you can sit back and prepared to be wowed at the Headliners theatre or catch a comedy performance by a famous comedian. Afterwards, venture along to one of the many bars for a glass of your favourite tipple as you chat with some of your fellow passengers.
If you’re worried you’ll miss something happening on-board, you only need to consult your daily Horizon newsletter that’s delivered directly to your cabin. Finally, the real cruise geeks amongst you can venture on a four-hour behind-the-scenes tour of the ship and find out exactly what life is like below the stairs…
It’s not just British leisure tastes that P&O Cruises live up to! The food and dining onboard their ships showcase menus for food and drink, by celebrity chefs including Marco Pierre White and Wine connoisseur Olly Smith. Passengers can choose to dine “club” with set dining times and locations or choose “freedom” to dine whenever you want with whoever you want for no extra cost.
Dining options onboard include:
Complimentary dining is served in the main restaurant and buffet and there is even a chocoholic’s buffet served to replace afternoon tea on select sailings! Most dietary needs can also be easily met on-board, passengers just need to let P&O Cruises know at the time of booking.
One thing those who sail with P&O Cruises love is the regular sailings from Southampton, so those who hate flying or dislike travelling never have to go far.
Amenities on-board include:
So what makes P&O Cruises suitable for families? Well, on-board you can expect to find…
There is also plenty for children to do, so parents don’t need to worry that their kids will be bored. P&O Cruises offer a variety of entertainment including kids clubs which cater to different age groups. The clubs are called The Reef, Splashers, Surfers, Scubas and H20 and put on discos, tournaments, arts and crafts classes, puppet shows, pool games, karaoke and much more.
P&O Cruises is a line that caters to those who love to dress up on formal nights, but the jeans lovers amongst you won’t need to run for cover! The dress code on-board is casual during the day and dress code only applies during dinner and formal evenings. It adds a touch of glamour to events and guests enjoy dressing up in tuxedos or cocktail dresses… or even wearing 70s clothes if it’s a themed party! For those not used to dressing up, a black-tie hire service is available.
