Passengers on Britain’s largest & newest superliner Ventura will be able to fly high above sea level at Cirque Ventura – the first circus school at sea.

Located high up on deck 19, highly skilled performers will run workshops with a host of exciting activities on offer including tight wire, acro balance, clowning, break-dancing, juggling and stilt walking. In addition, the area will be equipped with two thrilling centrepieces – four bungee trampolines, which will enable passengers to soar 60 metres above sea level, and a flying trapeze.

P&O Cruises managing director, Nigel Esdale said: “Cirque Ventura is set to be a firm favourite and is just one of a host of innovations onboard Ventura. Any guest aged eight and over will have the chance to ‘run away with the circus’ and learn some innovative skills.
