P&O Cruises offers best value for money on its most “diverse and adventurous” programme for 2012

07 Mar 2011 - Even after 175 years of ocean travel there are still new destinations to be discovered and P&O Cruises is featuring 13 new places to explore in its 2012 programme including Ancona, on Italy’s eastern coast, Durres in Albania and Kalmar in Sweden.

P&O Cruises 2012 brochure will feature 215 cruise holidays to 255 ports in 84 countries with holiday durations ranging from two to 109 nights and fares starting from £199*. The newly announced programme can be booked from Tuesday April 5, 2011.

The brochure features the second year of Oceana’s winter cruising from Southampton, and for the first time includes two short cruises for Christmas and New Year. These cruises offer the chance to spend Boxing Day in Copenhagen or New Years Eve in Amsterdam, for some genuine festive charm whilst only being away for four or seven days.

P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said: “P&O Cruises offers the greatest choice of ex-UK cruises and this year will be sailing 148 roundtrip cruises from Southampton.

“2012 will also see the first full year for our new addition, Adonia. She will offer cruises from Southampton and also fly cruises to the Mediterranean featuring some very diverse and adventurous ports of call, such as Trapani in Italy and Sanary Sur Mer in France, which will appeal to a more experienced passenger.

“Cruising with us is excellent value for money as the price you pay includes all your meals, entertainment and child care too, whether you’re on a two night city break or a 35 night Caribbean cruise. Booking early gives passengers even better value for money with special savings, on board credit offers and even some free adult and child spaces, as well as an extra 10% Anniversary Year discount.”

Savings and benefits of booking early include:

• Early Booking Savings of up to £1,500 per couple**
• Additional 175th anniversary saving of 10% on the 163 new cruises in the brochure
