P&O Cruises plans 'floating art gallery'

Date Posted: 23 Aug 2007
Category:
A new superliner will become the 'largest floating art gallery' in the UK, with almost 7,000 new pieces of modern art on board.

Under new plans by P&O Cruises, a total of 40 British artists have been commissioned to create unique pieces of modern art worth more than ?1 million.

The Ventura superliner will reflect the best contemporary artists in Britain today and is scheduled to enter service in April 2008, with P&O Cruises running a series of Introduction to Modern Art themed cruises in partnership with Tate Modern.

Covering an array of disciplines, including photography, mural, painting, mosaic, sculpture and glasswork, the art collection will be displayed in public areas of the ship and includes work by Paul Critchley, Vanessa Ballard, Johnny Bull and Jo Downs.

P&O Cruises Head of Brand Marketing, Philip Price, said: "We are proud to be working with the most talented and up and coming artists in Britain. The artwork on board Ventura is being created to stimulate and appeal to anyone of any age. It will bring the ship to life and be a real part of the Ventura experience."

The 115,000-tonne, 290m long vessel is the largest superliner ever built for the British market, with acres of deck space, luxurious surroundings and restaurants serving world cuisine.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "
