Theatre shows


On the Horizon

Headliners Theatre Company invite you to their premier show as they take you on a journey, bringing your cruise programme to life through an eclectic mix of song and dance.


Our new interactive gameshow, WaveLength, is such a big hit we’ve launched it across the fleet for you to play on every ship. Created exclusively for P&O Cruises and virtually starring TV and game show host, Ben Shephard, it’s fun for audience and contestants alike.


Prepare to be amazed with this spectacular magic and illusion show created by Stephen Mulhern and Jonathan Wilkes, that from start to finish will leave you thinking ‘how did they do that?’.


A new era of musicals is taking theatres by storm. A strong contemporary line up of musicals including 9 to 5, Tina, Matilda, Moulin Rouge and Frozen. Join us for a night of the best musical theatre currently on offer.

Mr Tickerton's Clockwork Circus

Roll Up, Roll Up For A Night At The Big Top! When Mr Tickerton’s Clockwork Circus comes to town, you are guaranteed a fantastic night’s entertainment. A theatrical circus like no other, led by the enigmatic Mr Tickerton.




The Limelight Club

Music fans and foodies will love The Limelight Club. The first of its kind in the fleet, it offers a sophisticated supper-club experience. Feast on a fabulous modern European menu and enjoy intimate performances from world-class entertainment talent.

The Live Lounge

When dusk falls, it's time to play and your ship begins to come alive with the hum of conversation and music, so you can be sure of a memorable night. Enjoy a cocktail or two to a dazzling show, cabaret, rib-tickling comedy, or dancing the night away, the choice is yours.

The Crow's Nest

Savour glorious ocean views and signature timeless classic cocktails with a twist. By day, the mood is restful for reading and reveries. By night, things take a sophisticated turn –the live pianist, moody vocals and stylish late-lounge vibe making it a popular haunt for night owls.


This much-loved British pub boasts the ship’s largest range of British and international bottled beers, ciders and real ale. By day, Brodie’s hosts quizzes and live sport, by night you’ll find live entertainment, karaoke and game shows.


 Daytime fun



Get ready to make a splash with our amazing choice of pools on board. On Britannia, you will find 4 pools and 4 whirlpool spas, perfect for when you want a refreshing dip whilst watching the world go by.


If you've energy left from exploring ashore, why not try a new sport –archery, maybe? Or a swing in the golf nets? What about some friendly family competition playing giant chess, table tennis or shuffleboard? There’s so much to do on board, all at no extra charge.


With dance instructors on board every cruise, why not learn a new skill? Perhaps salsa or line dancing? Or if you just want to bust a move, look no further than our silent disco evenings.


 Family fun


Why not try out our range of family-friendly ships?

Of course, we know how precious family time is. If you can tear them away from the clubs, there’s a wide range of activities and entertainment to enjoy all together. There's lots of delicious dining options to choose from too.
