The world’s leading hospitality design teams have been enlisted to create a whole ship full of chic spaces in which to eat, drink and play on Iona.
The Olive Grove is one of our personal highlights, a Mediterranean-inspired eatery serving everything from sharing boards to grilled meats and pizza. As soon as people realise it’s there, it will quickly become booked up, so get in early to avoid disappointment!
For exceptional views during sailaway, make sure you visit The Crow’s Nest. Located right at the front of the ship above the Bridge, there’s no better place from which to watch the world float by.
Here are some of our favourites; did someone say gin?
Singer, songwriter, producer and performer… Gary Barlow’s many talents speak for themselves. And now he has taken on the exciting role of Music Director of The 710 Club on their newest ships Arvia and Iona. Gary makes this intimate music bar the most exciting live music venue at sea. Showcasing an eclectic range of performances, curated to appeal to British music lovers, this atmospheric late-night music venue offers an opportunity for up-and-coming musicians to get their break.
This collaboration highlights P&O Cruises commitment to providing world-class entertainment on Arvia and Iona that places music firmly at its heart.
“It’s all about the music.”
A place to immerse yourself in the seductive sounds of an array of musical genres that have inspired Gary over the years, The 710 Club on P&O Cruises newest ships, Arvia and Iona, is a sophisticated bar that’s been crafted to Gary’s creative vision. Atmospheric and low-lit, the club serves up live music with an unmistakably vintage vibe, stylish cocktails and the most important ingredient of all: a little escapism, to ensure the good times continue long into the night.
‘I want The 710 Club to be a celebration of great music and great talent. As its Music Director, I want to give a unique experience for people who love music as much as I do. Music’s been such a massive part of my life – and taken me on so many journeys and adventures. I’m hoping to pass this on to all the guests in my club.’
Gary is bringing his vision and personality to The 710 Club on Arvia and Iona. Exclusively for adults, its stage lights up to the sounds of its talented resident band: a group guided by Gary. Yet his involvement runs far deeper – to choosing music for the club, guiding future performers and playlists and even shaping the interiors and signature cocktails.
Having performed at countless pubs and clubs at the start of his career, Gary loves to see up-and-coming talent catch that all-important break and this is exactly what The 710 Club is all about. The club often showcases new guest performers, giving new talent the chance to shine, while the resident band will weave their own spell with numbers inspired by Gary’s life, loves and musical style, creating atmospheric sets that have been crafted for the true music lover.
