A cruise expert has highlighted P&O Cruises
as being among the best offerings available to travellers this year.
Carolyn Spencer Brown, resident cruise expert at the Times, highlighted the "interesting" features and amenities of Independence of the Seas
and Ruby Princess
as potentially appealing to cruisers looking for bigger and better.
Indeed, Ruby Princess
offers cruisers a range of entertainment options, including The Sanctuary, an adults-only relaxation area, Movies Under the Stars, a wedding chapel, fitness centre and various dining choices.
Ventura, which is set to be launched by P&O Cruises
in April, was noted for its resident circus school and restaurant by Michelin-starred celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
Ms Spencer Brown said: "On these ships, it almost doesn't matter where you go - the ship is the destination and the port is a distraction."
Another option for those interested in a smaller-scale cruise experience that has a "cosier" ambience, the expert suggests Fred Olsen Cruises
, which is performing "major" surgery on its new acquisition Balmoral and a revamp and expansion of Braemar.
