Our summer 2023 and winter 2023/24 cruise collections are here, packed with top destinations and more time in port to explore. And with two exciting new ships to discover, there’s twice as much to look forward to. You might dip your toes in Iona’s infinity pool as the scenic ports of Olden, Stavanger and Ålesund drift by. Perhaps you’ll feel the warm Caribbean sun on your skin through Arvia’s retractable SkyDome, or embark on new adventure in the Balearic Islands on Britannia with calls at Ibiza and an overnight at Palma. For winter sun, get ready for Arvia’s winter season in the Caribbean. Her seven- and 14-night itineraries include a maiden call at La Romana in the Dominican Republic, Antigua and Barbuda, St Lucia and St Maarten. Britannia's loving the Caribbean sunshine, too, with 14-night Fly-cruise holidays from Barbados. Over the festive period, Arvia celebrates in the Canary Islands with an overnight in Tenerife to explore more. For the first time, one of Aurora’s Northern Lights cruises covers the Christmas period, while Ventura celebrates an Atlantic Coast Christmas, before ringing in the New Year in Amsterdam and Zeebrugge. Maybe you’re looking forward to the year you and your loved ones finally embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure? Look no further than Arcadia’s World Cruise 2024, with 99 nights and calls at Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong and Singapore.

From relaxation to exploration, let us plant the seed for exciting new experiences on your next holiday.


Barbados is primed to welcome back guests of P&O Cruises, with the reassurance that the iconic Caribbean island remains a safe, vibrant and captivating port of call. ‘Barbados is ready and waiting to welcome you,’ says Cheryl A Carter, Interim Head of Global Markets, Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (below). ‘The health and well-being of our residents and visitors is our main priority. This is evident through the protocols being followed by all of our resorts, hotels, bars, restaurants, visitor attractions and wider amenities on the island.’ With attractions and heritage sights reopening, locals are eager to see the island buzz with cruise-guest life once more. ‘The island’s capital, Bridgetown, is a historic and colourful port city, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting five museums and many must-see sites of interest,’ says Cheryl. ‘Beyond a myriad things to see and experience, Barbados is highly regarded as being the friendliest of the Caribbean islands thanks to its charming people. The start of the winter 2021/22 cruise season will help reignite the island’s overall tourist industry, reinvigorating those local communities whose livelihoods depend on this vital sector.’
