P&O Cruises presents Ionafest 2020
Eyes will widen. Gasps will sound. Attention will be rapt. This is the power of Creativiva.
Brand new for P&O Cruises, we’re working with international entertainment company, Creativiva to offer something completely different for Iona. We’ve bespoke Creativiva-original shows coming to SkyDome and the Grand Atrium. You’ll find yourself transported to another world; filled with acrobatics, aerial acts, physical theatre, dance, music... not to mention flamboyant costumes, impressive sets and much, much more.
Lose yourself in a different world
Holiday on Iona and beyond the bands, the theatre shows and the cinema, you’ll find a brand-new immersive experience. Will you wander into the aviary? The Arena of Time? Or perhaps stumble upon two officers lost in a daydream... Lose yourself in a different world; one where acrobats descend from the rooftops, fly through the air, whirl in blurring rings, tie themselves in knots, balance beyond the realms of possibility and leave you spellbound in their midst.

Iona's entertainment venues
The Grand Atrium
The Grand Atrium is the beating heart of Iona; a lively signature space that encapsulates the spirit of the ship. Designed by UK architecture and interior design practice Jestico + Whiles, it’s a stunning focal point that makes the sea the star. And with daily entertainment and a different guest experience on each deck, it’s also the place to meet, drink, dine, be entertained and watch the world float by.
A major new entertainment venue called SkyDome will be one of Iona’s star attractions. Set on decks 16 and 17 and featuring an impressive roof and a pool with a retractable stage, it offers a unique space whatever the weather and the time of day. By day, SkyDome is the perfect place for relaxation and informal dining, with a swimming pool, whirlpool spa and poolside features, and shaded seating areas. By night, it comes alive with aerial performances, immersive shows and deck parties
The 710 Club
A place to immerse yourself in the seductive sounds of an array of musical genres that have inspired Gary over the years, The 710 Club is a sophisticated bar that is being crafted to Gary’s creative vision. Atmospheric and low-lit, the club will serve up live music with an unmistakably vintage vibe, stylish cocktails and the most important ingredient of all; a little escapism, to ensure the good times continue long into the night
The Limelight Club
The Limelight Club on deck 6 is a feast for the senses, with fantastic food, great company and top-notch entertainment. The venue showcases established and emerging entertainers and is the dedicated space for resident performers, all accompanied by a gregarious compère and Iona’s house band. Exclusively for adults, it’s also a hotspot for dancing, with daytime classes and hosted dancing events.
Headliners Theatre is perfect for a fun-filled night out on board. Classic yet contemporary, it offers a sleek and sophisticated theatre experience. Plush, comfortable seating and the latest LED technology deliver the ‘wow’ factor, while a two-deck-high auditorium on decks 6 and 7 ensures everyone has the best view in the house.
