P&O Cruises can trace their history back to 1822 and the formation of the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company. Continuously evolving to meet the demands of a changing audience, P&O Cruises is the line to pick if you want a holiday on the seas that combines the class and glamour of traditional cruising and an array of modern amenities and unforgettable excursions.
The biggest cruise line catering primarily to the British cruise market, the P&O Cruises fleet can often be spotted around Southampton and the south coast, journeying towards the beautiful delights of the continent. Led by the flagship Britannia and her iconic Union Jack livery, the P&O Cruises fleet exudes timeless British charm.
With every member of the seven-strong P&O Cruises fleet routinely calling on British soil, the cruise line is perhaps the best positioned for British holidaymakers looking to enjoy a no-fly cruise to some of the world’s most delightful destinations.
Despite routinely calling into the port of Southampton, the P&O Cruises travel far and wide, taking in far-flung destinations such as Cape Town, Barbados, Cozumel, and many more.
With one of the richest fleet histories of any modern cruise line, the P&O Cruises roster is currently made up of seven ships, with another due to enter service in mid-2018.
One of P&O Cruises’ two adults-only ships, the Arcadia is perfect for solo travellers, couples, and groups of friends looking for a sophisticated journey on the seas. Relaxed, stylish, and chic, the Arcadia boasts just a hint of restrained elegance—making your cruise aboard her all the more memorable.
The Aurora is a popular sight all around the world, and is best known as P&O Cruises’ worldwide-cruising vessel. Built to accommodate guests for months at a time, there is a wealth of options aboard Aurora and a wonderfully welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
Having been refurbished and refitted in 2015, the Azura boasts an excellent array of amenities and on-board facilities, including a delightful selection of dining options and entertainment venues. One of the larger ships in the fleet, the Azura is often regarded among the best ships in the fleet for the whole family to enjoy.
The flagship of the P&O Cruises fleet, the Britannia is instantly recognisable thanks to her huge Union Jack livery. The largest cruise ship ever built for the UK market, the Britannia has proved hugely popular since she entered into service in 2015—providing a delightful blend of traditional cruising charm and modern holiday-making convenience.
You’ll be transported away from the grey skies of the UK as soon as you step aboard the Oceana. With huge palm trees in the atrium, this Caribbean-inspired vessel never misses a trick in providing a little taste of paradise. Perfect for families, the Oceana is home to many kid-friendly features from splash pools to night nurseries.
Stylish, intimate, and charming, the Oriana is one of the smallest members of the P&O Cruises fleet. Reserved for adults, the Oriana provides the perfect setting for a sophisticated stay on the waters of the world. Refined indulgence can be found throughout, with an array of exquisite dining venues and delightful bars dotted across this ship.
With 12 places to dine, an array of entertainment venues, and endless kid-friendly activities to enjoy, the Ventura is the ideal ship for the whole family to spend a week or two on, exploring some of the beautiful destinations the world has to offer.
With Egyptian cotton sheets, complimentary drinks, and a whole range of in-cabin amenities as standard—every suite and stateroom aboard the P&O Cruises ships provides luxurious passage on the seas. From interior cabins to luxurious balcony suites, there’s an accommodation option to suit every taste and budget.
