New to Cruising

A P&O Cruises holiday is a great way to escape from everyday life and to explore many different destinations in one of the most relaxing ways imaginable. It offers you an extraordinary variety of activities and entertainment, plus exceptional restaurants and bars. And of course, if you simply want to escape, there’s plenty of opportunity to do absolutely nothing at all.

You have a choice of seven ships, each offering a very different holiday experience. There are itineraries ranging from two nights to over 100 that explore the four corners of the globe. And with en-suite accommodation, flights (where applicable), dining and entertainment day and night all included in the price, a cruise holiday is great value – especially as everything is in Sterling.



Cruise Life

Accommodation: All P&O Cruises’ cabins are air-conditioned, well-designed to offer as much as space as possible and many feature balconies for additional outside space, so you can wake up to a new destination and enjoy breakfast on your balcony. You will also be able to enjoy the services of a personal cabin steward who will take care of your every need.

Dining: There are several dining options available to choose from so you select the one that suits you best. With Club Dining you can enjoy a fabulous five course menu in a sociable and friendly atmosphere at certain times throughout the day. Freedom Dining is just that – you’ll be able to enjoy the same five course menu but with the flexibility of eating at a time you choose (between 6pm and 9.30pm) and with whom you choose. Select Dining allows you to be truly flexible and to dine at a time of your choosing with only a modest cover charge.

Entertainment: There’s never a dull moment with a variety of acts and entertainment to delight in. From dazzling West End performances to live music and tribute bands, there’s something for everyone. Why not try your luck in a P&O Cruises’ Casino or choose from a wide selection of bars and lounges to enjoy a specialist cocktail or two in. There are even nightclubs aboard so you can dance the night away.

Customer Testimonials

“New to cruising, having never fancied the idea – believing too many people and always in your face, long queues, Butlin’s type entertainment etc – how wrong were we. Loved it. Not a single complaint – staff excellent and hardworking, food excellent, ship immaculate, cabin and balcony the only way to do it for us. Loved it so much, booked within five days of returning for next year and counting the weeks already.” – Celia Duncan

“As this was our first cruise we were very impressed with Britannia, the crew and food and service. We were so impressed we have all booked for a Caribbean cruise next January.” – David Dudley
