Destination Highlights

Get straight into the holiday spirit on a cruise from Southampton. Forget luggage restrictions and navigating the airport - your cruise from Southampton will start, and finish, on a high.

Departing from Southampton, you can ease your way into your 7 night or 14 night cruise holiday with lazy or action-packed sea days (the decision is yours) and fun-filled nights, taking time to reconnect with things you love and the people you love to do them with. And once you’ve rediscovered your mojo, it’s time to discover destinations that offer so much more than sun, sea and sand.

Look to the seas for a hassle-free holiday

When a hassle-free holiday is at the top of your wish list, it makes sense to choose a cruise. Board a beautiful P&O Cruises ship in Southampton for the smoothest of holidays and remarkable value for money.

Bring as much luggage as you like: glamorous evening wear for Celebration Nights, swimwear for the pool and spa, hiking boots for adventures ashore. And you can relax knowing your bags are all taken care of as soon as you arrive at the terminal when they’ll be whisked to your cabin so that you can start your holiday hassle-free.

Norwegian Fjords

One of the most spectacular regions of the world, many argue that the only way to truly appreciate the scenery of the Norwegian Fjords is to sail through them. We, of course, agree. Fjord cruises offer more than any land based experience ever could. Cruising through the deep-blue waters of Norway’s UNESCO-protected fjords is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


With beauty waiting at every stop, there’s plenty to explore. Famed for its art, architecture, cultures, cuisines, beaches and more – the Med is a holiday full of rich experiences and it's perfect for adults or families to experience together.

Canary Islands

Will you swim in the crystal-clear water off Lanzarote? Or don your hiking boots to explore Tenerife’s hidden lava tunnels? Perhaps you’ll enjoy the sunset while sipping a cocktail on lush La Palma. With so many full days ashore, you’ll have time to dive deep into these extraordinary islands.

Spain and Portugal

From peaceful landscapes to bustling cities, this region is all about diversity. Explore the winding cobbled streets of Lisbon’s Old Town by tuk-tuk or set off on a rafting adventure in the heart of the Galician countryside. With full days on offer in almost every destination, the possibilities are all yours.
