Sail Away with P&O Cruises

by Suzanne Fluhr on August 26, 2013 · 0 comments

Mr. Excitement and I enjoy leaving the “driving” to a cruise ship captain on occasion, but we have never taken a cruise that departed from a European port. Therefore, I am pleased to be able to share this guest post by Catherine Lavinia who hails from the United Kingdom and has written this article about P&O cruises, a venerable British line, sailing from Southampton on the south coast of England.


Discover the World with P&O Cruises

When it comes to cruise holidays, P&O really knows how it’s done. This stalwart of the seas has over 170 years of experience in the sea-faring business, and its cruises are testament to that long history of knowledge and experience.

 P&O Cruises prides itself on providing quality onboard facilities and entertainment, carefully chosen itineraries and a high level of service. Mindful that passengers have varied needs and desires when they are contemplating a cruise holiday, you’ll find that some P&O ships are family friendly, with a wealth of child-centered activities and various kids’ clubs and youth programmes, whilst other ships provide adult only sailings for those passengers who may be looking for some time away from their or others’ children.

But let’s face it, none of that matters unless you’re sailing to a destination that really excites you. So, where can you go on a P&O cruise?

With P&O you can explore the historic cities of Europe, the spectacular Norwegian Fjords, the sun-drenched beaches of the Mediterranean, and the soft sand and warm water of the Caribbean. You can also choose a cruise length that suits your schedule, ranging from two-night jaunts right up to month-long or even multi-month long cruises. If you just fancy a short budget-friendly cruise or if you’re a first-timer, a mini tour to Bruges or Guernsey is a great way to test the waters, so to speak.

For something more involved, you’ll find numerous week-long or fortnight-long itineraries around the Mediterranean, Europe, the Caribbean and even further afield. P&O also offers a bucket list worthy round-the-world cruise — a full circumnavigation of the globe lasting three to four months, with a fabulous line-up of destinations ranging from the scintillating skylines of Sydney and Singapore to the heart of the Far East.

Whatever cruise you fancy, with its wide range of destinations and intriguing itineraries, the chances are a P&O Cruise can take you there. Which one gets your vote?
