Whether your travel ambitions take you on a short break or long, shores close by or those afar, P&O Cruises will transport you there. In 2025, Arvia will embark on 14-night Western Mediterranean itineraries, as Iona is bound for the Norwegian Fjords, which will also host Britannia before she takes on the rest of Europe. Azura will be doing what she does best in the Mediterranean, fly-cruises covering the Greek Isles, Croatia and more. Ventura serves up a selection of Canary Islands, Iberian and Atlantic Island cruises. Meanwhile, fleet favourites Arcadia and Aurora will be destined for northernmost Norway, as well as lesser-visited destinations in the USA and Canada.
A new season of sailings delivers the opportunity for exciting adventures. Arvia will be visiting Toulon and Malaga for the first time on her Western Mediterranean itineraries, as Azura makes overnight calls in Valletta in March and April. Britannia and Aurora will set sail on brand-new British Isles, Norway and Scandinavia cruises, while Iona is set to make a triumphant return to the passenger-favourite Flam. There will be plenty of maiden calls to savour in 2025, including the Mediterranean ports of Motril, the gateway to Granada, and Kotor in Montenegro. Closer to home, there will be opportunities to explore Belfast, Liverpool and Stornoway – or perhaps you’d rather head across the Atlantic to see what the port of Rockland, Maine has to offer.
