Award Winning Cruise Lines
P&O Cruises fleet of seven ships, and Cunard’s fleet of three stunning ships, offer the height of luxury and service. This is reflected in the multiple award wins for both lines across the board.

Sleep Easy
All cabins are sumptuously equipped with some of the most comfortable beds you’re likely to sleep in and full en-suite facilities. Both P&O Cruises and Cunard offer a selection of cabin types: Inside cabins represent great value, whilst outside cabins offer a picture window to allow daylight in. Balcony cabins all offer outside space, accessed by full height doors – making cabins light and airy, and giving you space to enjoy the sea air. Suites or Grills are the most luxurious form of accommodation on board. They offer more space, often with separate sleeping and living areas; butler service; and exclusive restaurants on Cunard ships.

Be Entertained
Be dazzled by west end style productions in state-of-the-art theatres, or spend balmy Mediterranean evenings enjoying movies on the outdoor SeaScreen with cocktails and popcorn. Let us pamper you with therapies in our spas or take a plunge in a choice of indoor and outdoor pools.

Dine in style
Your fare includes all food whilst on board, and you’ll have the choice of many restaurants no matter which ship you travel on. From sumptuous meals in your maindining room; to more relaxed buffet restaurants, and poolside snack bars; afternoon tea; Superb Dininghandmade cakes and 24 hour room service you will be spoilt for choice.
In addition all ships offer speciality restaurants from the likes of Marco Pierre White, Atul Kochhar and Todd English (these restaurants carry a small charge).

Explore the World
P&O Cruises and Cunard ships offer itineraries that literally cover the whole world – allowing you to explore the all the iconic sights. And, after a day exploring, you’ll return to the familiar comfort and luxury of your waiting ship. Both lines offer holidays of varying lengths, giving you great freedom to find a holiday to suit.

Short breaks of 2-5 nights make for the perfect alternative to a city break. Slightly longer cruises of 7-21 nights are an ideal way to explore slightly further afield. You may choose to sail north to the Fjords and Baltic or south to the Mediterranean and Canary islands – these holidays all depart from Southampton, meaning your holiday can begin the moment you step aboard. Alternatively, you may choose a fly-cruise in the Caribbean. You can fly from selected regional airports, and will be greeted by your ship in a few hours ready to enjoy the Caribbean sun.

Finally, if time allows you could embark on an epic world cruise of over 100-nights, alternatively join en route on a choice of shorter sectors from 8-50+ nights for the ultimate winter escape. The world really is yours to explore.
