If you are looking for a cruise holiday with a complete British experience, then P&O Cruises are the perfect choice.
Most of their cruise itineraries depart from Southampton cruise terminal, meaning you will experience a hassle-free cruise holiday with no flights or checking in at busy airports. Simply park at the cruise port (parking can be included in your package) check-in and sail away.
A major plus point for British travellers on a P&O Cruise is that there are no gratuities or tipping required, unlike other cruise lines, it’s all included in the cost. Also, everything you purchase on the ship such as drinks, excursions or general shopping is all in pound-sterling.
Although the majority of P&O Cruises depart the UK there are also plenty of options for fly-cruise itineraries that visit the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
All P&O fly-cruise holidays are booked as a complete package with chartered P&O flights and all overseas transfers included.
