P&O Cruises Ships

P&O Cruises


Proudly sporting Union Jack colours on their hulls, the P&O Cruises ships are designed perfectly for British travellers. Some vessels provide fantastic facilities for families and others are exclusively an adult-only affair, allowing you to find an onboard experience to suit you. Sailing out of a variety of UK ports, the ships also vary in size – from the 1,800-capacity Aurora to the largest ship built for the UK, Iona.

The onboard ambiance celebrates those casual moments in life when all is right with the word. A view of a stunning fjord with a drink in your hand. An afternoon by the pool in the sun. A surprising shore excursion that enhances your trip. These are the times where you may find yourself saying “This is the life.”

Ensuring your holiday is filled with fantastic culinary encounters is a band of Food Heroes that you may recognise. Marco Pierre White, Eric Lanlard and Ollie Smith all influence menus and the dining venues in which they are offered, as well as occasionally making their way on board to take part in masterclasses and Q&A sessions.

Great service for a relaxing holiday


P&O Cruises will go to any length to ensure you enjoy the holiday of a lifetime

Great service begins the minute you start your P&O Cruises holiday. Once on board, you’ll meet your personal cabin steward who will ensure your cabin is beautifully clean, tidy and comfortable thrughout your trip and will always greet you with a friendly smile.

New, from May 2019, no discretionary daily Service Charge

P&O Cruises take huge pride in giving you a holiday that's truly memorable and their team on board is committed to providing exceptional service. From May 2019 (cruises A911, B912, E911/A, J903, N910, R907, X907 and all thereafter), the discretionary daily Service Charge on board will be removed so you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of. Changes like this do take a little bit of time to put in place, and so for holidays which depart before May, a discretionary daily Service Charge amount of £7 will continue to be added for guests aged 12 and over.
