Christmas and New Years Cruising with P&O

Newspapers

Why spend Christmas Eve creeping along on the M25 in the rain when you could be relaxing on a beach in the Caribbean or enjoying a glass of Cava in Barcelona? Why battle your way through the masses of last minute shoppers to the turkey aisle of your local supermarket when a five course Christmas dinner awaits you on board one of our ships? Make Christmas different this year: sunbathe, swim with the turtles, take yourself off to the spa and leave the dishes to us.
