Frequently Asked Questions about P&O Cruises

Do P&O Cruises offer a Flexible Cancellation Policy?

Yes, P&O Cruises have a Flexible Cancellation Policy in place. The cruise line has recently introduced several temporary enhancements to its transfer policy. This includes allowing guests to transfer their holiday to any P&O Cruises voyage currently available as many times as they’d like up until the balance due date free of charge. Terms & Conditions apply.


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.

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 6.30 pm and the second is at 8.30 pm. 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, 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.

There is also a range of 24-hour dining options including 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.
