We’re getting ready to name our newest ship, Arvia

As we look forward to Christmas festivities, be sure to save some bubbly for another celebration.

We’re planning the most amazing event we’ve ever held, the likes of which the world has never seen. 

Even better, you're invited!

For the first time ever, we’ll hold a beachside ceremony in Barbados to mark the naming of our spectacular new sunshine ship Arvia.

You can expect star-studded entertainment featuring some of Britain’s most popular performers and presenters in what promises to be an unforgettable show.

And the whole show will be broadcast live online on Thursday 16 March 2023 so you can dress up, get together with family and friends, and enjoy it all at home. 

“Arvia will spend her first season sailing in the Caribbean in 2023, so it’s fitting that we mark her naming in one of our favourite ports of call,” said P&O Cruises president, Paul Ludlow. “This event will showcase our extraordinary new ship and the beauty of Barbados, and will include some very special surprises.”

More exciting details about the line-up for this historic event will be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled for news.
