Once in a lifetime experiences are a ‘shore’ thing

9 Apr 09 – Ever dreamt of driving a sleek Ferrari around the streets of Rome or soaring over glaciers in a helicopter? Well now the dream can become a reality with the range of 89 new shore excursions being offered by P&O Cruises in 2009.

Designed to meet and exceed the needs of new and more adventurous cruise passengers, the programme offers a range of ‘must do’ activities and experiences on land, sea and in the air. P&O Cruises managing director, Nigel Esdale, said: “This new range of shore excursions offers new and returning passengers the chance to experience something completely extraordinary during their holiday. “We can now offer them a choice of experiences that simply would not be possible on any other type of holiday. In a two week Mediterranean cruise they could have a private viewing of St Mark’s Basilica, handpick a diamond, go kayaking, cook an authentic French crepe and learn to flamenco dance.”

Highlights of the shore excursion programme are:

  • Driving a Ferrari F430 through the streets of Rome from the port of Civitavecchia
  • Stunning helicopter trip over the New York skyline
  • Visit to Breton Strawberry farm and experience the art of crepe making, from the port of Brest
  • Kayaking on the tranquil Eidfjord lake
  • Sea plane sightseeing flight over Bergen
