P&O International

Find your perfect cruise holiday with P&O Cruises.

A tempting choice of holidays from Short Breaks; epic, life changing World Cruises and everything in between. From island-hopping in the idyllic Caribbean to touring the fascinating Arabian Gulf or discovering the jaw-dropping vistas of Norway’s fjords and the Northern Lights, a P&O Cruises holiday combines fascinating new places with friendly service and luxury. P&O is essentially British leisure cruising offering fantastic value, exceptional food, thrilling entertainment and seemingly endless activities to fill your days & nights


P&O ships range in size from 1 874 – 3 647 guests, but the main difference between the ships is that the fleet is divided into adults-only & family-friendly, creating a very different vibe and feel onboard. Despite the size differences, the ships are very similar in features including dining and entertainment venues. The ships may vary in smaller features – Britannia has the first Cookery Club at sea, and an intimate venue for supper club-style show; while Azura and Venture have adults-only relaxation areas at a fee.
