Beginning with the smallest is the Aurora catering for 1874 guests, this elegant ship has a tiered stern, long bow and sleek funnel. This was my first P&O cruise and I was not disappointed in this world class ship. Her main feature is a stunning 4 deck atrium, perfect for formal evenings and featuring a dramatic 35ft scuplture.
Aurora also sails the world during the Winter world cruise and Europe and Scandinavia in Summer season for varying lengths between 3 and 25 nights
A family favourite is the Oceana, a mid sized ship carrying 2016 passengers. For the last 2 years she has been based in the Med as a fly cruise with alternate 7 and 14 night itineraries sailing around the West and East Mediterranean, giving people the opportunity to visit ports that are just that little out of reach on a Southampton sailing. This has proved very popular with P&O passengers and was a gamble worth taking, especially as they offer direct regional charter flights from many airports in the UK.
One of the first family ships to have a more informal atmosphere, Oceana’s redeeming features are a bustling atrium with palm trees and glass fronted lifts giving it a very airy vibe, and a secret sports court in her funnel is a constant surprise for all
Ventura is the most popular ship for families with lots of features. This was a huge step forward for P&O building a ship so big carrying 3078 people, and was launched to rival Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas.
Ventura has everything, shes a very sociable ship where there is always something going on, whether its kids playing in The Reef, adults relaxing in the Spa, 4 pools and a sports court and a 2 deck theatre for evening shows
Azura followed 2 years later and from the popularity of her sister ship Ventura P&O went bigger and better, she is one of the largest ships in P&O’s fleet. Described as a social paradise at sea this ships is great for all ages. she blends pure sophistication with a family friendly vibe and is a favourite with my passengers. Sailing from Barbados for some Winter sunshine and Europe and the Med in Summer
2015 saw the launch of Britannia, P&O’s new flagship, it’s moto……’Inspired by our past designed for the future’. This description perfectly describes the new innovations that P&O introduced on this new modern ship with a very different look to previous ships, even being voted best new ocean ship in 2015 and is the largest ship built exclusively for the UK market. From those first steps onboard be mesmorised by the spectacular ‘starburst’ centrepiece of her atrium, relax in the Retreat, have a cookery lesson with a host of famous chefs, watch a west end style show or The Beatles experience in the Live lounge, there is so much to do you will struggle to disembark at your chosen ports
And now for the exciting news, 2020 sees the launch of P&O’s next ship, promised to take cruising to a whole new generation, details are kept a secret so we can only wait in anticipation for news to filter through, but they have promised to take your holiday to new heights with a host of new innovative features to make you go wow.
I for one am excited, this will surely be a best seller
