Cartagena, Spain Tue 30 Aug 2022

An ancient city with a name to match - it was founded more than 2,200 years ago by Carthaginian leader Hasdrubal - Cartagena is now one of Spains busiest commercial centres. Step ashore here, though, and you are immediately aware of its rich history. In fact, you see it even as you cruise towards the harbour as this is flanked by towering fortresses. Then, in the centre of the old town, you will find the original Carthaginian castle and sections of the old city walls. But Cartagena is also a city which moves with the times hence the new harbourfront development which includes the unique National Museum of Underwater Archaeology. As part of Murcia province, Cartagena cruise port is also an excellent base for visiting the city of Murcia itself and its distinctive Baroque cathedral; the 17th century religious sanctuary of Fuensanta; the Fortress at Lorca Taller del Tiempo; the spa resort of Balneario de Archena; and for touring into the mountainous interior or along the Costa Blanca to Alicante.

What are the dining options available on board?

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

Club Dining is a fixed seating plan with two sittings, the first is at 6.30 pm and the second is at 8.30 pm.

Freedom Dining is available on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura, Britannia, Iona and Ventura. This option allows you to dine flexibly between 6.00 pm and 9.30 pm. If a table isn’t available, you will be given a pager to advise you when one becomes free. Select Dining allows you to dine in a speciality restaurant for a small charge. Enjoy restaurants by Michelin-starred chefs such as Marco Pierre White and Atul Kochar.
