Frequently Asked Questions about P&O Cruises

Is there a dress code on board?

Yes, there is a dress code on board but it only applies in the evening. During the day you can wear whatever you like. There are two dress codes: Evening Casual and Black Tie. Evening Casual is stylish resort or leisurewear. For example, casual separates or dresses for ladies and open-neck polo shirts and casual long trousers (not shorts or ¾ length trousers) for men. A jacket and smart trousers can be worn but are not compulsory. T-shirts are also acceptable but should not have any offensive symbols or language on them. Smart dark denim is also fine but not trainers, football shirts or tracksuits. Black Tie is glamorous evening wear such as cocktail dresses, ball gowns or even smart trouser suits for ladies and dinner jackets or tuxedos for men. Though dark lounge or business suit and tie can be worn as an alternative.


What dining options are available on board?

All P&O cruises are all full board and include breakfast, lunch, dinner, poolside grills, deck barbecues, 24-hour buffets and snacks. Room service and afternoon tea are also included.

Every evening, a place in the main dining room will be set for you and when booking (depending on your ship and fare), you can choose to dine at a set time or one that will fit around your day to day plans. P&O have a few options for you to choose from; Club Dining, Freedom Dining and Select Dining. Club Dining is a fixed seating plan with two sittings, the first is at 6.30pm and the second is at 8.30pm. A table will be reserved for you at the same time each evening and you’ll dine with the same guests and be served by the same waiters for the duration of your cruise. Freedom Dining is available on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura, Britannia and Ventura. This option allows you to dine flexibly between 6.00pm and 9.30pm. If a table isn’t available, you will be given a pager to advise you when one becomes free. Select Dining gives you the opportunity to dine in a speciality restaurant for a small charge. Enjoy restaurants by Michelin-starred chefs such as Marco Pierre White and Atul Kochar.

There are also a range of 24-hour dining options such as buffet food courts, pizzerias and daytime grills. In all instances, the cost of your meal is included in your fare. You can also take advantage of 24-hour room service for a small charge.
