Life Onboard a Cruise Ship

Thanks to P&O’s Food Revolution there are a minimum of seventeen dining experiences on each ship including a number of celebrity chef dining options by Luke Mangan. Plus with plenty of bars, pubs and nightclubs you won’t be left wanting. Spend your day waking up in comfort, taking in spectacular views, soaking up the sun by the pool or choosing which onboard activity to do, with at least 60 daily you’re spoilt for choice.
