Why you should go on a 3 day short cruise

Oceans of variety

A P&O 3 day cruise isn’t just a sampler cruise - there’s always something exciting happening on or off board. Our 3 day short cruises have something for everyone, from couples and families to friends and colleagues. Hop on a Sapphire Coast Food & Wine cruise, try our themed Comedy cruise or Country cruise, or chill out on the OG Classic Short Break cruise. Want to make the most of your travel time? Look out for our one-way cruises, which disembark at a different port from where they depart from. There are quite a few to choose from, and many are side-splitting comedy cruises - so you’ll be sure to disembark in high spirits.

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s hard to find the time to take a break. A short 3 day cruise can help you get the rest and relaxation you need to recharge, in no time at all. All the planning, accommodation, dining and entertainment are taken care of - so all you have to do is hop onboard, and we’ll do the rest! You can even choose between weekend and midweek breaks for extra flexibility. Get a massage at our spa, take a yoga class, or simply read a book by the pool, cocktail in hand. Wind down your way!

Want to visit somewhere new for a day, or reach your destination feeling relaxed rather than frazzled? Don’t waste precious holiday time in a cramped car - make the most of your short break and travel in the comfort of our world class ships. Our 3 day cruises sail from all departure ports, and have many of the same entertainment and dining options you’ll find on longer cruises, including a range of restaurants and bars, boutiques, and child-free Oasis. Why not take a one-way short cruise to your holiday destination, or on the way back home? You can even contact P&O Cruise Air and we’ll book your air for you. We partner with all of the major airlines.
