Whether you choose a 2-night break, a full world cruise or something in between – you will enjoy a heady mix of discovery, relaxation and excellent service on a P&O cruise. Cruises are for people who want to see and do a bit of everything, but to sail on the ocean with all of the luxurious touches that come with P&O, is just that little bit nicer.

You will have an endless supply of food included, entertainment, children’s clubs, gym, pools, dance classes and events included in the price. Your drinks at the bar will usually not be included, although many of P & O cruises over seven nights offer the choice of onboard spend, which you can use towards some beverages (alternatively you can choose car parking or return coach travel to Southampton). You will also need to pay extra for beauty treatments, excursions and fitness classes.
