New P&O Cruises ship Arvia will join the fleet in December 2022, bringing more freedom, greater choice, sunny vibes and spectacular views. Designed for sunshine and blue skies but set for adventures whatever the weather, Arvia – meaning ‘from the seashore’ – holds the promise of happy days and fun-filled nights to come.
Arvia will be the second LNG-powered Excel class ship in the P&O Cruises fleet, following Iona’s arrival this year. The new P&O ship has a host of surprises in store too; with Arvia’s luminous glass-roofed SkyDome, on-board gin distillery and a whole world of dining and entertainment on board, we can hardly wait to share her with you.
Arvia was made for sunseeking and she’ll spend her maiden season sailing cruises to the Caribbean, making herself at home in serene turquoise seas as she hops between eight of the most magical islands.
On a host of itineraries spanning seven to 22-nights, Arvia will explore eight idyllic Caribbean isles: Antigua, Barbados, Curaçao, Dominican Republic (a maiden call), Martinique, St Kitts, St Lucia and St Maarten. Swap Britain’s grey skies for Barbados blues, drinking in a taste of the good life, resetting to island time and sinking your toes into hot sand as the sound of lapping waves surrounds you – bliss!
Cruises on Arvia promise adventure unlike any other, with a design created to make the sea the star and the sun shine in – think swim-up bars and infinity pools with a view of paradise. There’ll be al fresco chill-outs under those ever-blue Caribbean skies and plenty of looking across golden shores with a spritzer in hand.
Holidays on Arvia are set to be all about spending more time ashore, so the new P&O Cruises ship will offer itineraries that include overnights and late calls in some of the Caribbean’s most exciting ports of call. All Arvia’s guests will enjoy an overnight stay in Barbados – home to famous Oiston Fish Fry as the lights go down and the party starts. Choose a 14 or 15-night cruise on Arvia and you’ll also get the chance to kick back and enjoy the evening vibe in Antigua and St Lucia (those Piton views are even better at sunset…) And for those lucky enough to join Arvia for a 22-night repositioning cruse, there’ll be two blissful days in Barbados, plus either two full days in St Kitts or two full days in either Martinique and St Lucia. Doesn’t the sound of being castaway in paradise for a week or two sound like heaven?
