About P&O Cruises
P&O Cruises has been well known and loved in the UK for 175 years. Since 2015, the cruise line has also become increasingly established on the German market. Guests appreciate the traditional high sea experience with a typically British flair. Knowledge of the English language is important on board. The fleet of P&O Cruises is child friendly, except the Arcadia and the Oriana that are ships for adults only. The currency on all ships is the British Pound.
Iona's eagerly-anticipated sister ship, Arvia, joins the fleet in December 2022 and is heading for the sunshine. Like Iona, Arvia offers even more freedom, innovation and variety than ever before. So get ready for your ultimate P&O Cruises holiday.

Everyone who plans a cruise with Arvia can select the favourite stateroom of a very high variety of categories. There are different categories including interior, oceanview and balcony staterooms as well as mini suites and suites. Besides that, P&O Cruises offers interior and balcony staterooms for single travellers. Something very special are the Conservatory Mini Suites. These mini suites are equipped with a conservatory which can be connected to the room, to the balcony or to both at the same time. To fulfill the special wishes like a dinner on the private sun deck there is a private butler for the guests who booked a suite.
Atmosphere aboard the Arvia
A cruise with Arvia can be described as a traditional cruise experience combined with a modern and amazing style. The atmosphere is inspired by the british flair and traditions. Therefore, every afternoon the typically british afternoon tea is served. In general, the life aboard is relaxed and casual and the familiar atmosphere makes the cruise memorable. Casual clothing for the day adjusted to the destination and more formal evening attire are recommended for a cruise with P&O Cruises.
Food and Beverages
Aboard there are different restaurants which give you the opportunity to try the different cuisines from all over the world. In The Quays you can try the exotic food from the buffet. If you prefer a tasty steak, we recommend The Keel & Cow. A really stylish and comfortable place to end the day with an excellent glass of wine is The Glass House. During the daytime the bars and lounges as well as the Gelateria are the favourite locations of many guests. In the evenings the dinner is served in different restaurants at two different dining times.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
The new Sky Dome on deck 16 and 17 is the place to be. In the afternoon one can relax on the sun beds or in one of the jacuzzis before the party will start in the evening. The inside pool can be changed into a stage where singers and dancers present their fascinating shows. The Grand Atrium, also called heart of the ship, is the central location aboard. Around the Grand Atrium there are many smaller restaurants and bars. Children can play in The Reef, a club which is divided up into different groups of age and consists of inside and outside areas. For swimming fans there is a high number of swimming pools and jacuzzis. In The Retreat massages and other wellness treatments are offered. Who likes to run in the morning can make one round on the outside jogging track while enjoying the fresh air of the sea. In addition, there are sports classes offered in the sports area on deck 5.
The casual and friendly impression of the design, the culinary diversity and the entertainment programme convince us. Because of the combination of modern elements, new technologies and a traditional cruise experience we are sure that the ship will fascinate many guests. We are really excited and looking forward to Arvia!
