Focus on: P&O Cruises

P&O are the stalwarts of the shipping, ferry and cruise industry. This established, forward-thinking company has been part of the travel scene for decades – and it’s this long-standing reputation that ensures it’s always at the forefront of new advances and ideas in the world of cruise holidays.

So what can you expect from a holiday with P&O Cruises?

Across its fleet of seven ships you’ll find stacks of things to see, do and experience – and that’s even before we consider the list of destinations you can visit with a P&O cruise holiday. Its vast super-liners are capable of carrying thousands of passengers and keeping them wined and dined across several restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs, not to mention well-entertained with deck upon deck of sports and spa facilities, laid-back lounges and theatres, quiet libraries and high-octane cabaret shows. It has smaller ships too – and these are perfect for passengers that want a more intimate cruise experience, with less hustle and bustle and more focus on the personal touch.

Unlike other cruise operators, P&O also puts the spotlight on family needs. Instead of offering half-hearted kids’ clubs and the occasional crèche, liners such as P&O Aurora are designed to welcome passengers of all ages and from all walks of life. There’s a whole deck dedicated to youngsters complete with a children’s play area, nursery and qualified staff ready to keep the little ones happy and entertained.

And of course for the adults, P&O really pulls out all the stops. There’s always something to do at any time of the day or night – whether it’s relaxing under the sun up on the top deck, practising your golf swing or settling down in front of a Hollywood blackbuster.

It’s fair to say that where cruise holidays are concerned, P&O really knows how it’s done.
