With a proud cruising history stretching back over 175 years to the formation of the Peninsular Steam Navigation Company, it's no surprise that the award-winning P&O Cruises is considered to be Britain's favourite cruise line. Perfect for people new to cruising, experienced cruise passengers, couples and families alike, P&O's cruises offer an incredible combination of exploration, relaxation and entertainment. Great service comes as standard on a P&O Cruises holiday, with no tipping or gratuities needed on board any of their ships.
Every P&O cruise will take you to a variety of beautiful ports in comfort and style, allowing you to explore multiple destinations in a single holiday and ensuring there's always something new to discover. On board you can dine in a number of venues from casual to fine dining and enjoy acclaimed entertainment including live bands, comedy acts and West End style shows - there really is something for everyone on board.
Looking for something different? Why not try one of P&O's special themed cruises, such as Food Heroes, Music Festivals at Sea or Strictly Come Dancing, where you can enjoy one-of-a-kind events and mingle with celebrities and special guests.
P&O's fleet of stylish, modern ships includes the family friendly Azura, Britannia, Iona (due to make her debut in summer 2020), Oceana and Ventura, as well as Arcadia and Aurora - both exclusively for adults. Their ships offer cruises sailing direct from Southampton all year round, taking passengers to a dazzling array of ports and destinations including the Baltic Capitals, Canary Islands, Mediterranean, Norwegian Fjords and more. You can also escape the British winter with Caribbean fly cruises departing from Barbados, or enjoy longer voyages with P&O's full world cruises and exotic voyages to worldwide destinations.
