New to cruising?

Don't worry, here's a guide to help you!

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 the choice of eight ships each offering a very different holiday experience. There are itineraries ranging from 2 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.


We are always delighted and proud when our customers recognise the unique cruise experience we offer. We were therefore thrilled to receive:


"New to cruising, having NEVER fancied the idea - believing too many people and always in your face, long queues, Butlin's type entertainment etc etc - how wrong were we. LOVED it. Not a single complaint - staff excellent and hard working, food excellent, ship immaculate, cabin and balcony the only way to do it for us.  Loved It so much, booked up within 5 days of returning for next year and counting the weeks already."

Nine reasons to cruise with us


What type of people go on cruises

We don't have a typical P&O Cruises guest.  Cruising appeals to a wide range of people so there's a good mix of age groups, families, couples and singles on board.  Generally however, a holiday with us appeals to those who love new experiences, a sociable atmosphere and a sense of occasion.


About your accommodation

Choosing your cabin type

Our cabins are air-conditioned and well designed, to give you as much space as possible and to help you relax into your surroundings.  Choose between these options (the prices for each will vary slightly depending on where they are located on the ship):


Travel in ultimate style and luxury with our butler serviced suites, which come complete with a spacious balcony for uninterrupted ocean views.


Balcony cabins:
When you're surrounded by an amazing ocean, or sailing into a beautiful new destination, you'll want to enjoy the perfect vantage point - your own private balcony


Standard outside & inside cabins:
The perfect way to travel if you plan to spend most of your time out & about - they're also our most economical options.


Single cabins:
Travel in a room designed just for you, our single cabins are spacious, comfortable and all yours. Importantly they're priced just for one, so you won't have to pay a  surcharge.


Family suites & cabins:
These contemporary cabins are designed with families in mind. Beds for everyone and clever design ensure a restful holiday for everyone. Please note that children under 16 cannot stay in a cabin without an adult.

What's included in your accommodation

  • Egyptian cotton sheets

Days at sea...


You’ll feel your cares melt away as you relax in the on-board spa that can be found on all of our ships. Each ship offers something very slightly different – Azura, Britannia and Ventura, for example, offer a private outdoor terrace, whilst on Arcadia, Azura or Ventura you could enjoy a Thermal Suite. All ships offer a wide choice of spa treatments for men and women (and even couples) from trained beauty professionals.


All about going ashore

Iconic sights, awe-inspiring scenery, and compelling local cultures - each port of call is brimming with exciting possibilities. Although you are quite welcome to explore independently, using our shuttle bus service where relevant, we have also organised a diverse selection of shore excursions to help you experience the very best of your destinations.


Shore excursions are created by a team of destination experts who work closely with carefully selected, reliable local operators and are designed to suit all ages, interests and abilities. Once you’ve booked your holiday, you’ll be able to browse through excursions tailored to your specific cruise and purchase your tours in advance through Cruise Personaliser.


Half day shore excursions range from £25.00 to £60.00 per person. Full day tours range from £50.00 to £140.00 per person. The prices depend on the type of excursion you take and whether it includes lunch or refreshments.

5 great benefits of shore excursions

  1. Well researched itineraries with expert guides
  2. Value for money as entrance fees, transfers, meals and refreshments (where advertised) are included
  3. Enjoy the sights in comfort, safe in the knowledge that you won't miss your ship's departure
  4. We arrange all the details so it's perfectly convenient
  5. Remember, you can guarantee your place and get the best price by booking early

Deciding which ship will suit you

Choosing the right ship for you

If you’ve never been on a cruise holiday before, the choices may seem a little confusing; once you have decided where you want to go, you then need to choose which ship to travel on – but how? The best way to think about our ships is in the same way you’d think about hotels – every hotel has a different feel and offers slightly different facilities. The trick is to pick the feel and facilities that suit you best.
