Head for the Med in summer 2023! Flagship Britannia has flamenco dinner dates lined up in Mallorca and jeep expeditions around Ibiza on new cruise holidays in the beautiful Balearic Islands. If you’d like to be among the first guests sailing newest ship Arvia on her maiden season in the magical Mediterranean then a 14-night holiday from Southampton will take you to the soft warm sands of Spanish shores, Marseille’s glittering harbour and top Italian highlights. Adventures ashore include thrilling day trips to some of the world’s most celebrated sights such as Italy’s Tuscan treasures, Il Duomo in Florence and Pisa’s leaning tower, within reach from La Spezia. If you can’t wait, start your summer as early as April 2023 and get out there even faster on an Azura Mediterranean fly-cruise holiday.

PO cruises – Winter cruise holidays 2023 / 24
Imagine seeing the powerful waterfalls of Norway’s ice-blue fjords for the first time, the snow-capped mountains drifting by as you take a dip in the Infinity Pool, just one of many special treats Iona has in store. Rekindle the childlike magic of Christmas by searching the skies for the mystical Northern Lights on a 12-night Arcadia cruise holiday.

As the UK gets colder, why not take a 14-night winter sun fly-cruise for even more time to soak up the rays, eat the delicious food and swim in the warm waters of the Caribbean or the Canary Islands? Jet straight to Barbados for a fly-cruise holiday on board Arvia, our newest and one of the most innovative ships in the world, or to Tenerife where Azura spends three full days and two days in Madeira helping you get into the local pace of life.

Aurora and Arcadia await the true adventurers in 2024 if this is the year you finally undertake that experience of a lifetime and go for the ultimate holiday on and off the water, a world cruise, of up to 99 nights.

New adventures ashore
The new cruise holiday itineraries have plenty of full days for adventures ashore, and more evening and overnight calls to give you extra time getting to know the diverse destinations on offer. This might mean longer in Lanzarote for a proper Spanish siesta or arty adventures around Barcelona; down time down under exploring Sydney; European double days in Rotterdam and Reykjavik or on vodka tasting tours in St Petersburg and Caribbean calls swimming with the hawksbill sea turtles in Barbados. With two days in New Orleans, hop on a paddle-steamer swamp tour ride one day and join a Mardi Gras guided walk the next.  In Honolulu’s ‘gathering place’ Oahu, see the sunrise surfers and try the nightlife after sunset. 

What else is new to look forward to in 2023/24?
You will enjoy enhanced well-being measures, world-class dining, spectacular entertainment, comfy accommodation and an easy to use My Holiday app personal pocket planner to help you to tailor your time on board.
