Shore Experiences

Are you a sightseer, a mountain hiker, an art lover or a foodie? Perhaps you’re a sun bather, a paddle boarder, a wine taster or a photographer? Or maybe you like to mix things up – day to day, or even moment to moment?

Safe travels

Guests are able to go ashore independently but must adhere to the specific COVID-19 protocols in each destination. However, as restrictions in each destination are changeable, and some destinations may only allow cruise line organised experiences ashore, we highly recommend you purchase P&O Cruises shore experiences prior to travel to ensure you always have the option to explore each destination. In order to keep up-to-date with the latest status of each port, please refer to this dedicated page on our website, which is updated weekly.
