Details of Arvia’s Grand Atrium have emerged, as P&O Cruises prepares to welcome the new ship to its fleet later this year.

The stunning Atrium will provide widescreen ocean views and act as the heart of Arvia. Aside from watching the scenery roll by, aerial performances will also be held in the triple-height space, alongside a full programme of live events and entertainment.

Champagne-coloured ribbons will frame the grand staircase, and there will be a selection of spaces where guests can relax, dine or socialise throughout the cruise.

P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “With its elegant design, warm tones and beautiful custom-made elements, the Grand Atrium on board Arvia will provide guests with the perfect backdrop to their holiday photos.

“The design has made the most of the magical effect of light at different times of the day, so whether guests want to enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink, the Grand Atrium will provide the most spectacular backdrop.”

Arvia’s Grand Atrium will include Amber Lounge, where guests can watch a mixologist create incredible cocktails. Dining options include The Keel & Cow, home of great gastro-pub fare, with traditional favourites including dry-aged steaks and and the best burger at sea, The Prime Minister.

The Glass House will be located on Deck 7, providing stunning views over the horizon and a selection of dishes paired with wines selected by Food Hero Olly Smith.

Arvia will join the P&O Cruises fleet in December 2022, with a maiden voyage to the Canary Islands. This will be followed by a winter season in the Caribbean. Arvia will be the largest ship to sail from home port of Barbados, offering guests a choice of holidays, ranging from seven to 22 nights.
