P&O cruises

This-is-the-life_960x200_1

Treasured memories come as standard on a P&O Cruises holiday. And with so much included in the price of your holiday, we promise to make each one go so much further.

This way for an escape brimming with unforgettable moments. Treasured memories come as standard on a P&O Cruises holiday… from breathtaking sights in faraway places to quiet cups of coffee in your cabin, while gazing out to sea. And so much is included in the price too, from flights and transfers, to shuttle buses in port, to all meals in the main restaurants, glamorous black-tie nights and glittering shows, to dance acts, children’s clubs, casino entry and so much more.

Besides the low deposit of 5% on sailings under 35 days P&O are also offering on board spends on all select fares on Ocean Views or above.

With over 250 destinations and the largest range of EX-UK sailings on offer up to 75% of their passengers return yearly.

World

With all the home comforts on offer with P&O from on board currency in Pound sterling to even not worrying about adaptors for you plugs as they are all British standard to good old British afternoon tea and all the entertainment aimed at the British guests.

Besides the regular itineraries with P&O they will also be offering themed Cruises aimed at those who are strictly come dancing fans to sports fanatics or food lovers. Visit our website www.cruiseclubuk.com for further dates and cruises.

Themed Cruises are also a favourite with P&O and their guests. On offer will be the Grand Prix in Monaco which will be a fly cruise, the Bruges Christmas market and Christmas and New Year in the Caribbean. On a personal level I am looking forward to the release of the Atlantic Coasts itinerary which will include Fireworks in Madera. Another Itinerary which more and more people are doing each year will be the Northern Lights, this is something that is on my bucket list of places to visit and is something my colleague Marcia has done several times before .

P&O aurora world wide

One thing I find after being in the travel industry for over 20 years are the amount of people who cannot get on their chosen cruise as many sell out quickly, not to be disappointed Christmas and New Year sailings are out on sale with P&O for 2018

Captains Choice Cruises

Sailing from Southampton in 2019 each cruise features a collection of classic destinations that P&O have visited many times and grown affection for over the years: With over 50 Itineraries they have put together from the British Isles to the Fjords and the Caribbean for those who are looking for something further a and guaranteed sunshine. The prices and dates are to be finalized.

Discover how good life can get with
Peninsular Club loyalty rewards

Every night you spend on board with us; every night of dining, laughter, music and easeful sleep, you are doing something else too. You are earning points to increase the rewards you enjoy next time you holiday with us. (Brownie points, as we like to think of them.)

The club has six tiers, named after the oceans and seas cruised by our ships. The tiers are arranged in order of size, with the smallest sea, the Ligurian, being the name of our most exclusive tier.

Here’s how it works…

For each night you spend on board, we award you 10 loyalty points which are applied at the end of your cruise. Once you have spent at least 15 nights on board (150 points), you automatically become a member of the Peninsular Club. So, after earning 150 points, you enter the Pacific Tier. As the number of nights you spend on board with us increases over subsequent holidays so, too, does your tier status.

AU_BRIDGE_003_2465747

Achieving Baltic and Ligurian Status

The Baltic and Ligurian Tiers reward our most loyal guests.

Baltic Tier: You will have at least 2501 points and would have spent 80 to 200 nights on board within the 3 years preceding the start of your next cruise.

Ligurian Tier: You will have at least 2501 points and would have spent at least 201 or more nights on board within the 3 years preceding the start of your next cruise.

Carried on from my previous blog regarding P&O’s ships, P&O also do family cruising very well too, and here is the advantage of having specialised ships for different categories

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.

FamileyFriendlyOverciewImage318x318

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.

OceanaAtrium318x318

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.

AzuraOverview318x318

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

BritanniaOverviewStatsImage318x318

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

Serenity_Pool_DS38789_

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
