    <p>Almost two years to the day, <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/iona" target="_blank"><em>Iona</em></a> floated out of dry dock from Meyer Werft as the greenest, largest and most innovative vessel in the <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises" target="_blank">P&amp;O Cruises fleet</a>. How lucky we are that the much-anticipated <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia" target="_blank"><em>Arvia</em></a>, <em>Iona&rsquo;s </em>sister ship, will soon join her. As sister ships, <em>Iona </em>and <em>Arvia </em>are almost identical, however, there are some key differences. Here, we dissect what sets the sisters apart:</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Differences between <em>Iona </em>and <em>Arvia</em></h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h3>A new activity zone</h3>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12857" target="_blank"><strong>Deck 19</strong></a></p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><em>Arvia </em>features an exciting new activity zone on Deck 19. Perfect your putt at Altitude Minigolf, a tropical island-themed minigolf adventure, cool off and splash around at Altitude Splash Valley, an aqua zone with ocean views, brave the dizzying heights of P&amp;O Cruises first-ever high ropes experience, Altitude Skywalk, or play football, basketball, short tennis or cricket at the Sports Arena.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h3>Different restaurants</h3>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><strong><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12845" target="_blank">Decks 6</a> <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12847" target="_blank">&amp; 8</a></strong></p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>When <em>Iona </em>launched, she bought with her a fantastic world of food. So, it was only natural her sister did the same. 6th Street Diner on Deck 6 offers the best all-American eats in a laid-back venue perfect for fun dining with family and friends. Green &amp; Co, featuring Mizuhana on Deck 8 serves up the freshest flavours at sea with exquisitely crafted fish and plant-based dishes as well as delicious sushi courtesy of Mizuhana. Also on Deck 8, Roast in The Quays reinvents the classic Sunday Roast in the multi-venue dining piazza The Quays, which first debuted on <em>Iona</em>.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h3>A swim-up bar</h3>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><strong><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12854" target="_blank">Decks 16</a> <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12856" target="_blank">&amp; 18</a></strong></p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>A P&amp;O Cruises and industry first, Infinity and Panorama Pool and Bar offers the ultimate luxury. Located on Decks 16 and 18, you can order your favourite cocktail from the swim-up bar and then soak in the revitalising whirlpool. However, nighttime is when things really come alive with atmospheric live music and even silent discos.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h3>An escape room</h3>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12847" target="_blank"><strong>Deck 8 </strong></a></p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Are you ready for mission control? New and exclusive to <em>Arvia</em>, Mission Control is P&amp;O Cruises very first multi-sensory escape room experience. You&rsquo;ll board the fictional submarine <em>Arvia II </em>to tackle a series of live-action puzzles on an exhilarating underwater adventure. You&rsquo;ll have two storylines to choose from (one for all ages and the other designed for adults) - will you be able to crack the code?</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h3>A retractable roof</h3>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p><strong><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12854" target="_blank">Decks 16</a> <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/p-o-cruises/arvia/deck-plans/12855" target="_blank">&amp; 17</a></strong></p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>The SkyDome, which debuted on Iona, offers a relaxed, poolside environment by day and a must-visit entertainment venue by night. Now, <em>Arvia&rsquo;s </em>ethos is to help you see the world in widescreen, which is why P&amp;O Cruises have developed the SkyDome to include a retractable roof. Take full advantage of <em>Arvia&rsquo;s </em>sunny itineraries and be dazzled by the endless entertainment.</p>\r\n
