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.

Cruise Guest Speaker - Murray Walker

13th August 2014

Guest speakers are becoming increasingly popular on cruises and the latest one to be announced by Cunard is set to be extremely popular. Renowned Formula One commentator and journalist Murray Walker will join Queen Victoria on her 14 night Canary Island cruise in November.

At 90 years old, he has lived a life that few people could match. From his interesting childhood growing up during World War II to the growth of his phenomenal career in sports commentating, his journey is truly inspirational.

The world was first introduced to Walker in 1948 when his first commentating role, on Shelsley Walsh hillclimb, was aired. This only gave us a taster of the success that was yet to come. In the early 70’s Formal 1 started to become a world phenomenon and gained extensive coverage on British television, it was the perfect role for Walker. It wasn’t until 1978 that he went full-time as a Formal 1 commentator.

Through the following years Walker became extremely popular. His passion, opinions and infectious character beamed through millions of televisions around the world. His dedication didn’t stop here, he wrote a series of annuals for the Formula 1 which became famous collector’s items.

2001 saw Walker’s final Formula 1 season and shortly after he was awarded an original brick from ‘The Brickyard’ by track president Tony George. An award very rarely presented to anyone other than a winning driver, it was a reflection on his incredible contribution.

It was not long before his much loved commentating was missed and in following years came back on our screens with various microphones including Grad Prix Masters, Honda Racing F1 and European Grand Prix.

After being diagnosed with lymphatic system cancer in 2013, Murray made a speedy recovery and continues to influence the world through talks, books and documentaries.

It is not only his time at Formula 1 and the life-changing influence he had on this sport but his personal and early life is a story in itself. An incredibly inspiring character, you will be left in awe when you see him off-screen.

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! "
