Following years of lockdowns, prepare to explore and document your next travel adventure on an Instagram-worthy P&O cruise to Ibiza or with exciting calls at Amsterdam and Mykonos.

P&O Cruises has launched its summer 2024 programme. Whether you’re looking for Instagram-worthy destinations or a break in Amsterdam, there are many options through P&O.

Commenting on the announcement, P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “This programme of holidays, more than ever before, maximises the time in port to ensure our guests can see and experience the very best of each destination at their own pace.”

P&O’s new ship Arvia launching in December 2022 will join the P&O fleet as a sister ship to P&O’s Iona.

For a warm getaway, Arvia will offer two fourteen-night cruise options in the Western Mediterranean. Each itinerary will stop at six ports.

One of these will travel to Italy, Spain and France with calls at La Spezia for Florence and Pisa, and Barcelona. Jump onboard for only £999 per person departing and returning to Southampton, with kid’s club, full board meals and entertainment onboard included.

The other itinerary will focus specifically on Spain and France with calls in Barcelona and Valencia. On either cruise, you’ll have time to immerse yourself in each city’s biggest attractions.
