managing director Nigel Esdale said the introduction of two new cruises from Southampton would enable British passengers to escape to warmer climes without having to take a connecting flight.
"Our expanding fleet means we can offer more variety and choice for our customers and we work closely with agents to ensure they understand the breadth of choice with the P&O Cruises product. This is in terms of deployment, destinations and length of holiday," he commented.
Mr Esdale added that P&O's current winter programme was its most varied yet.
Other destinations served by P&O Cruises'
include Africa, the Baltic, Central America and the Panama Canal.
