Britain's largest and most modern cruise line, P and O Cruises have a rich vein of historical success in the cruise industry. P&O Cruises first invented modern day cruising as we know it way back in 1837. To date, P&O Cruises sail to over 180 different destinations in 72 different countries, more ports than any other UK cruise line. Throughout the year P&O offer cruises from Southampton to most Mediterranean and other Europe cruises, you can make your journey even easier with an overnight stay at the De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel including a free transfer to the port. For the Caribbean, North America, Alaska cruises and other tropical fly cruises, flights can be arranged from most UK airports.
But what do P&O Cruises offer on their cruise holidays? They have a traditional and intimate style, offering you relaxed days at sea and enchanting evenings, where you can dress up to the nines. For those who look forward to the elegant formal nights, yet don't own a dinner suit or tuxedo, P&O Cruises black tie hire will deliver one to your door — or if sailing from Southampton — straight to your ship.
P&O Cruises' Aurora and Oriana cruises offer a charmingly authentic style of cruise holiday, each of these modern cruise ships offer acres of teak deck on which to sunbath and elegantly designed interiors. These P&O Cruise ships are slightly more formal than the Arcadia and Oceana, combining both formal evenings and more casual theme nights. A wide range of different dining options feature, from generous buffets to a glamorous bistro dinner.
P and O Cruises' Arcadia and Oceana are stylish and contemporary ships with a relaxed and sociable atmosphere offering a modern outlook and level of formality which you can decide upon. Arcadia is child free, while Oceana is more family friendly and slightly more informal.
Launched in April 2008, Ventura is the largest ship ever built for the British market, and offers a new style of cruising that provides unique and inspirational holidays for young and old.
The brand new P&O Azura follows in Ventura's footsteps and offers an all new level of cruising, and for serious spa fans the new ship will be offering pre-bookable Azura Spa Stateroom packages.
P&O Cruises has become very popular with first time cruisers and offers great facilities and itineraries for family cruises. Cruise weddings with P&O cruises are also becoming increasingly popular.

What our customers say
"We have just returned from an Iglu Cruise with Hurtigruten. We would like to say how delighted we were with every aspect of our trip, from first stages of booking through to our return home. In addition we were treated to several amazing viewings of the Northern Lights. Wow!!
We have travelled extensively to many parts of the world, but our Iglu Cruise trip has provided us with memories that will last a lifetime.
Many thanks to you all.,"
