P&O Cruises’ Iona was designed as the largest cruise ship built specifically for the British cruise market, and as such she offers plenty of space and innovative features, as well as maintaining the quaint British charm that P&O fans love. She can accommodate up to 5,200 guests and has been created in such a way that all guests have a wealth of choice when it comes to things to do and places to eat onboard.
The accommodation too has a lot to offer. On Iona there are seven different options of cabins and suites, each of which boasts comfortable, welcoming décor of warm creams and blue tones, which are complemented by natural furnishings and pretty porthole-style windows. The Conservatory Mini-suite is particularly special, with the option of outdoor seating on a balcony, or equally fabulous sea views from a generous conservatory-style space.

Cuisine and Dining on Iona

There are 15 different dining venues to try onboard Iona, meaning every mealtime can offer a new experience. Here are a handful of the options you’ll have;

  • The Glass House – P&O Cruises’ Food Hero Olly Smith has helped to curate the meal and wine menus on offer in this popular restaurant. Learn about pairing your dish with the perfect wine, or attend tastings and talks here as well.
  • The Quay’s Piazza – this casual option is akin to a marketplace, where you’ll find a number of self-service stalls offering international quick cuisine such as New York style pizza and Southeast Asian noodle dishes.
  • The Keel & Cow – a cosy gastropub serving unfussy but delicious meals such as a good hearty steak dinner. This venue is great if you want to dine with loved ones in a comfortable and intimate setting.
  • Vistas Café & Bar – pop here for a treat during the day, or after dinner to extend your evening just a little. Designed by P&O Food Hero and eminent patissier Eric Lanlard, you’ll find decadent cakes and delicate pastries served with tea and coffee.

Entertainment on Iona

Onboard Iona you’ll find various performances occurring in unexpected places and at unexpected times. Spend enough time in the central hub of the ship – the atrium – and you’ll soon find yourself being serenaded by resident musicians, or awed by aerial acrobats.

Another great place to find yourself is the SkyDome. This innovative space is located across decks 16 and 17 and is comprised of a high-roofed pool with retractable stage, with plenty of loungers and dining options nearby. Here, again you’ll find pop-up entertainment, including more incredible aerial shows. 

In addition to these spaces, of course you have the theatre which is home to some grand productions, and the Ocean Studios cinema. Here you can order a drink and a box of popcorn and head into one of four screens to watch an exciting new blockbuster, or an old school classic.

For adults looking simply to socialise and enjoy a little tipple, there are a wonderful 10 different bars and lounges to choose from. The 710 Club is especially popular, with a range of live music acts appearing regularly.

Spa & Fitness on Iona

Cruisers who enjoy keeping up with a personal fitness regime while on holiday will love the onboard facilities that will help them do so. As well as four swimming pools there is a well-equipped gym and a selection of fitness classes as well. 

Additionally, make the most of the chances to enjoy some valuable me-time in the spa, and even indulge in a treatment such as a soothing massage or a rejuvenating facial. There are 16 whirlpools onboard too which can be great to chill out in.

Recreation on Iona

As well as spending time enjoying onboard entertainment or time in the pools, there are plenty of other ways to pass the time at sea. Mini-cruisers will especially love the kids’ clubs onboard, of which there are five in appropriate age groups, each offering some fun activities and educational play.

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! "
