P&O Cruises' 2019 Cruise Collection Highlights

4th September 2017

P&O are offering some truly exciting opportunities in their summer 2019 cruise programme, read on for a summary of the best highlights.


Weekly – 7 Night – Cruises to the Norwegian Fjords


Because of the popularity of this destination, summer 2019 will see P&O Cruises' three big ships – Britannia, Azura, and Ventura – make weekly cruises here between April and September. Arcadia, Aurora, and Oriana will also undertake longer (12 to 18 night) voyages to the Norwegian Fjords, offering plenty of cruise options for everybody.


More Discovery Led Itineraries


An increase in 14-19 night journeys to more unusual destinations is also planned for summer 2019. These cruises allow guests to discover and explore new and interesting places – including Propriano in Corsica, and Olbia in Italy. There will be both family-friendly and adult-exclusive options to choose from.



Cruises to Match your Hobbies


2019 will see the return of well-loved themed cruises. The stars of Strictly Come Dancing will again make an appearance, so pack your dancing shoes and join in with Salsa, Waltz, and other fun dance lessons. P&O’s association with various British Food Heroes will also be continuing, and guests can make the most of cooking seminars, wine tastings, and Q&A sessions to enhance their foodie knowledge. Another popular option is the Monaco F1 cruise – on which motor sport fans can combine their passion with their holiday.


New Ports


P&O ships will be adding some new ports to their repertoire: Le Verdon, Bordeaux and Fredericia, Denmark. These exciting locations offer pretty views and classic architecture: in essence, quintessential Europe.


Ensure you get the exact cruise you want by securing an early booking on a P&O summer 2019 cruise today.

Behind the scenes of Royal Princess

19th August 2015

We have just returned from a fantastic four day mini cruise onboard Princess Cruises stunning newest ship, Royal Princess. Cruising the British Isles in impeccable style we got to know our fellow cruise passengers and the friendly crew. We were also able to fully explore the sensational 16 deck Royal Princess including a sneak peek behind the scenes.

Entering service in spring 2013 she has a tonnage of 141000 and cruising speed of 20 kts. With a capacity of 3600, the ship was fully booked during our time onboard but never once felt crowded or cramped.

From our spacious and comfortable balcony stateroom we waved to the locals of Cobh (Cork), Ireland and admired the postcard perfect coastlines. We dined on exquisite Italian cuisine in onboard speciality restaurant Sabatini’s and rose early the next day for a top deck jog around the running track. Melted over the heavenly Chocolate Journey’s cocktail menu and danced the night away to our favourite songs in Club 6.

Royal Princess, christened by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge in 2013, was the perfect home away from home as we sailed the beautiful British Isles. Stopping off at delightful destinations such as Guernsey, Ireland, Liverpool and more.

A major highlight for us was our private guided behind the scenes tour of Royal Princess with cruise director Sam Hawker-Thomas. We had an unbelievable view from the Captains Bridge, walked backstage of the Princess Theatre and through the amazing cast wardrobe. Plus met the busy and hardworking kitchen staff preparing countless delicious desserts for the evening dinner guests.

Read on as we take you behind the scenes, through restricted access areas and give you the ultimate VIP tour of Royal Princess through our personal photo journey below.

Princess Cruises offer guests the opportunity to take the Ultimate Ship Tour on most of their ships, in which you can experience an extensive behind the scenes tour just like us. The tour will last around 3 hours with very limited spaces and prices are from $150 per person.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
