Santander Mon 09 Oct 2023

Santander, Spain

Santander, is located on the northern coast of Spain and enjoys a stunning location nestled on a small peninsular jutting between the waters of the Bay of Santander and the seas of the Bay of Biscay. The area surrounding the city is lined with 11 sandy beaches, which are perfect for sun worshipers and water sports enthusiasts alike. The area of El Sardinero in times past was famed as a resort by Spain's richest citizens. Their patronage has resulted in a beautiful area of beaches, divided by the gardens of Piquio, stretching from the Magdalena Peninsula to Mataleas. The area also boasts hotels, cafes and even a casino. Those looking to discover Santander away from the beaches will find a city as historic as it is beautiful. The Cathedral of Santander was built between 13th and 14th centuries on top of proceeding holy buildings and combines Gothic and Romanesque architecture.

P&O Cruises FAQs

Do P&O Cruises offer a Flexible Cancellation Policy?

Yes, P&O Cruises have a Flexible Cancellation Policy in place. This is part of P&O Cruises 'Book with Confidence' policy and allows guests the ability to transfer their cruise holiday to any P&O Cruises voyage currently available as many times as they’d like up until the balance due date. Terms & Conditions apply.

If you, or a member of your household test positive for COVID-19 14 days prior to travel or are not permitted to travel following the completion of the Health Declaration questionnaire, you will be denied boarding. In the event of these circumstances, P&O Cruises will provide a future cruise credit (FCC) of the full cruise fare. The future cruise credit can be used towards a future P&O Cruises voyage. If travelling as part of a linked group booking, friends and family will also have the option to opt for the FCC. 

Please note, FCC is non-refundable and is not ABTA or ATOL protected until the new booking is made. 


Do I need a COVID-19 vaccine to travel aboard a P&O cruise ship?

All guests aged 16 years and over need to be fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine a minimum of 14 days prior to travel. If more than 270 days (calculated from the last day of the cruise) have passed since the full completion of a vaccination course, a booster vaccine will also be needed and must be administered a minimum of seven days prior to travel.

At this time, a second booster vaccination is not required, however, P&O Cruises strongly recommend all guests to have booster vaccinations at the earliest opportunity, should they be available to them, in order to comply with evolving vaccine policies from the countries visited.

All guests aged 12 to 15 years need to be fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine a minimum of 14 days prior to travel. A booster vaccine is not required.

Guests aged five to 11 years need to be fully vaccinated* with an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to travel (a booster vaccine is not required) or must provide two negative COVID‑19 test results prior to sailing.

Guests under five years of age are exempt from pre-travel vaccination and testing.


Can I go ashore independently?

From 25th September 2021, guests will be able to go ashore independently but must adhere to the specific COVID-19 protocols in each destination. However, as restrictions in each destination are changeable, and some destinations may only allow cruise line organised experiences ashore, we highly recommend you purchase P&O Cruises shore experiences prior to travel to ensure you always have the option to explore each destination.


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.


Do P&O Cruises cater to allergies, intolerances or specific diets?

All ships in the P&O Cruises fleet cater to the following diets; vegetarian, pescetarian fish, low/no fat, low/no salt, lactose intolerant/dairy free, gluten/wheat free/coeliac, low cholesterol, diabetic, kosher and vegan. Should you require any of these diets or if you have any food allergies/intolerances, please call us before sailing so we can notify the relevant people at P&O Cruises.


Are drinks packages available?

Yes, P&O Cruises offer four drinks packages to help you tailor your cruise to your needs. The options include; The Ultimate Drinks Package, The Non-Alcoholic Drinks Package, The Hot Drinks Package and The Children’s Drinks Package. Each package is available on cruises of five nights or more and you can use your package in all the restaurants, bars and cafés on board. For a guide to P&O Cruises drinks packages, click here.


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 (dark lounge or business suits can be worn as an alternative).


Can I access the internet while on board?

Yes, every ship in the P&O Cruises fleet is Wi-Fi enabled so you can access the internet during your time on board via your devices or the ships PC terminals. Satellite internet packages are available to purchase prior to sailing or once on board. Pay As You Go is available to purchase once on board.

There are three Wi-Fi packages to choose from; The Connect Package, The Browse Package and The Works. The Connect Package enables you to stay in touch with family and friends. It is £6.75 per 24-hours with a full Cruise Plan or £7.75 for a single 24-hour period. The Browse Package allows you to browse as you normally would (except for video streaming), plus email and social networks. It is £10 per 24-hours with a full Cruise Plan or £12.50 for a single 24-hour period. The Works Package enables you to stream YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music, video call, browse, email and share via social networks. It is £20 per 24-hours with a full Cruise Plan or £24.95 for a single 24-hour period.


When can I book shore excursions?

Shore excursions can be booked approximately 12 weeks prior to departure. Excursions are available to pre-book and pay for online up to 3 days before sailing. Within 2 days of sailing, you will be able to join a waitlist for your chosen excursions. Alternatively, you may book on board. Waitlist requests are processed before on board bookings.


What health & safety measures are on board P&O’s ships?

For information on P&O Cruises enhanced wellbeing measures, please click here.


Are P&O Cruises and P&O Ferries related?

P&O Cruises is part of Carnival Corporation & PLC and, as such, is entirely unrelated to P&O Ferries. Bookings & sailings will not be affected.
