Wine, Dine and Shine – Life on Board with P&O Cruises
On board a P&O cruise, guests will find a refined and sophisticated decor that creates a cosy and comfy atmosphere. In the day, if not exploring ashore, guests can pamper themselves at the spa, cool down in the pool or take a swing at one of the golf nets. If you’re looking for something to get your pulse racing, go to the fitness centre and join a pilates or yoga class (at a supplement).
An evening on board a P&O cruise is a highlight in itself, with a diverse range of bars and lounges available. Black tie evenings are not to be missed, with guests encouraged to wear their most elegant attire – but this is not compulsory and guests are also welcome to adopt a more casual approach by dining at the buffet.
An array of tempting dishes are available on every P&O cruise, with menus created by celebrity chefs and sommeliers, including Eric Lanlard, James Martin, Olly Smith, Marco Pierre White and Atul Kochhar - also known as P&O’s ‘Food Heroes’. On specially selected cruises, P&O’s Food Heroes sail with guests and offer cooking demonstrations, masterclasses, book signings and Q&A sessions.
Entertainment goes above and beyond expectations, with incredible performances including West End and Broadway musical hits, dance troupes, cabaret acts and much more. P&O are renowned for their themed cruises including the much-loved Strictly Come Dancing-themed cruise, which includes special appearances from dancers and judges from the hit BBC show.
