Extend your holiday with a City Stay in Valletta

Stay a bit longer

Keep the good times rolling with some time in historic Valletta before or after your fly-cruise.

The Grand Excelsior Hotel is ideal. Indoor and outdoor pools, spa and leisure facilities. Plus, a private sandy beach. The hotel overlooks the picturesque harbour of Marsamxett and is ideally located near the city walls.

To stay, the first night costs from £120 per person per night, with additional nights from £80 per person per night (bed & breakfast). As a P&O Cruises guest you will receive complimentary Wi-Fi and a welcome drink.

Choose a one-way Mediterranean fly-cruise

Another option to consider

When our ships first arrive in the Med or leave after a spell in the region, we offer a one-way fly-cruise. You’ve got two choices:

Sail from Southampton, fly back to the UK:

This option lets you to settle into your cabin and relax into holiday mode. Your ship’s bars, cafés, restaurants, spa and pools are ready and waiting. And you have time to hatch the perfect plan for the days ahead, with port talks and our expert shore excursions team on hand to help.

Fly to your ship, sail to Southampton:

Flying out to your ship means you’re delivered to the very heart of the region. And after a string of amazing destinations, a leisurely sailing home brings a chance to kick back, relax and recharge.

How much luggage can I bring?

Fly-cruise allowances

When flying to meet the ship, both the charter and scheduled flight luggage restrictions vary, but are usually between 20 and 23 kilograms per person.

If your airline allowance is greater than 23 kilograms, we ask that no individual item of luggage weighs more than 23 kilograms, in order to be safely handled by the ship’s crew.

How does tipping work?

Rewarding good service is simple

While you're with us, you'll be looked after by many members of our crew. We make it easy for you to say 'thank you' for all the service you receive. With our Service Reward Programme, a discretionary daily amount of £7.00* is added to your on-board account for each guest aged 12 and over. This helps reward the waiters and buffet staff as well as your cabin steward or butler, who greatly appreciate your recognition of their hard work.

It means you can enjoy the service you receive, knowing the tip has been taken care of.

If you want to personally recognise a crew member, you can nominate them for our Outstanding Service Award. So, if someone goes the extra mile for you, use the nomination cards at Reception to let us know. It’s an opportunity for crew members to gain recognition they deserve, as well as prizes and a cash award.

*A service charge of £6 per guest per day will be chargeable to cruises departing before the 22 March 2018. For cruises departing the 23 March and thereafter, the charge will be £7 per guest per day.
