P&O Cruises to show Royal wedding at sea

25 Nov 2010 - Passengers on board any of the seven ships in the P&O Cruises fleet on Friday April 29, 2011 need not worry about missing out on the royal wedding as the ceremony from Westminster Abbey will be shown live on board.

Philip Price, head of brand marketing, said: "The whole nation will be gripped on April 29th as the Royal wedding takes place at Westminster Abbey. As Britain's favourite cruise line it is only fitting that our passengers should have a front row seat from unique locations around the globe. It will certainly be a grand celebration with almost 14,000 passengers sailing with us at this time."

The ships in the P&O cruises fleet will be in the following locations on 29 April:

    * Arcadia - 2,000 passengers watching as they finish their transit of the Panama Canal and head towards Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    * Aurora - 1,800 passengers watching as they cross the Atlantic heading home from Barbados, next stop Madeira

    * Azura - 3,100 passengers watching on the giant SeaScreen by the pool, from Palma

    * Oceana - 2,000 passengers watching from the open sea en route to Southampton from Gibraltar

    * Ventura - 3,100 passengers watching from Southampton (turnaround day)

    * Oriana - 1,800 passengers watching from Palma

Up to three lucky couples can share their wedding day with the Royals, and be married by the ships Captain on board Aurora as they sail across the Atlantic from the Caribbean. The P&O Cruises Weddings at Sea programme provides an affordable and stress free way to get married and wedding certificates feature the nautical coordinates of their wedding location.


As Ventura is in her home port, Southampton, passengers sailing on this date will be able to join in with a special Royal sailaway party, with flag waving, champagne and a celebratory atmosphere.
