Why a P&O cruise is the best school holiday getaway

We offer four-age specific Kids Clubs, all included in your fare. Endless activities, such as arts and crafts, music and sports games are on offer for kids. After spending some time at P&O’s Kids Club, kids of all ages are sure to disembark with plenty of unforgettable memories from their school holiday break - and plenty of newfound friendships. Safety and well-being are extremely important to us. That’s why all of our Kids Clubs are fully supervised, so parents can relax with peace of mind.



Planning a date night, or kids-free evening? No problem! You can use our late-night childminding service (charges apply), any time you like. That leaves you plenty of time to enjoy all the incredible wining and dining experiences onboard!
