Theme night fun
If you like to dress up, theme nights are great fun for all the family. There’s no obligation to join in, although the more the merrier for a lively atmosphere. To plan ahead, check Cruise Personaliser once you’ve booked to see which theme nights are on the cards – 60s and 70s, 80s Pop or Tropical? – to sort your outfit and accessories.
We don’t want to dampen anyone's fun but coming into effect on 1 January 2018, fancy dress and/or novelty clothing will not be permitted outside of these theme night evenings. We reserve the right to deny embarkation to guests who are inappropriately dressed.
The only exception to these are the official P&O Cruises theme nights and seasonal events such as Halloween and Christmas.
In addition to the fancy dress policy, clothing with personalised images/slogans, and/or clothing that features offensive language, images or slogans, will not be allowed on board at any time.
Travelling to the United Arab Emirates
Modesty in clothing is to be respected in this region, so make sure you pack plenty of light and loose clothing that covered the tops of your arms and legs. We advise ladies to avoid wearing any shorts or tight-fitting clothes and to take a head covering ashore.
