A little something extra
Did you know your ship has…?
From retail therapy to hydrotherapy, there are so many ways to unwind on board. Feel free to work up a sweat in the gym or sports court, gain a new perspective at an art talk or photography workshop, or treat yourself to a moreish ice cream to savour on a stroll around deck. With so much choice, you’ll have fun making new discoveries as you explore your ship. And if you like to plan ahead, you can book experiences such as spa treatments up to six months before your holiday via My P&O Cruises. That way, you can tailor much-deserved me-time around exciting destination planning.
Shops and pop-up boutiques
Treat a loved one, buy souvenirs, pick up essentials or simply spoil yourself. From Clinique and Clarins to Tag Heuer and Ted Baker*, you’ll find jewellery, fashion, cosmetics and more from top brands in the shops on board. Even better, you’ll find a great choice of new and exclusive products and great savings of up to 20% against UK high street prices. When it comes to special events, every cruise is different and yours may include fashion shows, gin or whisky tastings or boutiques themed on your next destination – like Russian bazaars that pop up on board during sailings to St Petersburg.
The Photo Gallery
You’ll often see our friendly photographers in scenic spots around the ship. So, why not gather your loved ones for a photo and make a moment last a lifetime? You can then view your pictures in The Photo Gallery and choose any you’d like to buy. For an extra-special experience, we can set up a Spotlight Photoshoot – a free service where you only pay for the pictures you want to take home. During your cruise, there may also be opportunities to sharpen your own photography skills at talks and workshops led by professionals.
Ceremonies at Sea
What better backdrop than the sun-kissed, infinite ocean for the unforgettable moment when you start the rest of your lives together? Whether you want to get married at sea or renew your vows, our shoreside and on-board ceremonies coordinators will help you plan your big day down to the tiniest detail, and take care of those all-important documents like your marriage certificates. Feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll provide full information on the range of packages available, which we can tailor to suit you. Find out more →
The Cookery Club
in association with Marco Pierre White
Whether you’re a whizz in the kitchen or a complete beginner, The Cookery Club aboard Britannia offers a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on in our state-of-the-art kitchen. You’ll be guided through recipes by our talented team of friendly chefs, or possibly even the godfather of British cooking – Marco Pierre White. As patron of The Cookery Club, Marco holds masterclasses and hosted dinners when he’s on board. Cooking done, it’s time to tuck in and enjoy the delicious food you’ve created. Places are limited, so be sure to book early.
Hot stone massage
Health and well-being
Spas and salons
All our ships offer their own spa and salon, some with thermal suites and hydrotherapy pools. Let our stylists pamper you, spoil yourself with a massage or treatment using luxurious Elemis products, or simply enjoy relaxing in the sauna and steam rooms. On some ships, you’ll also find The Retreat – an alfresco spa terrace, exclusively for adults, where you can indulge in some peaceful me-time and sip a fruit juice (or perhaps a cocktail) while lazing on a sun lounger.
Gyms and sports courts
Get your pulse racing with a full-on workout in your ship’s high-tech gym or take it a little easier and admire the sea views while lightly exercising or by joining us for a sunset or sunrise yoga session. Our professional personal trainers are also on hand to create fitness programmes just for you, and we offer regular classes such as Pilates and spin. Fancy some friendly competition with your loved ones? Head to the sports court to join a tournament or play games such as short tennis, football and basketball.
The highlights keep coming
There are so many ways to tailor your holiday with the little (and sometimes big) things you love to do. And if you choose Select Price when you book, you can put on-board spending money towards your kind of highlights.
Be inspired when you step into your ship’s gallery. Admire a stunning collection from acclaimed artists, which may include works by L.S Lowry, Sherree Valentine Daines or Doug Hyde among others. Whether you’re a first-time collector or a seasoned art connoisseur, there’s something for everyone with prices starting from £65.
Try action sports in the great outdoors, join backstreet city tours with local guides, immerse yourself in foodie adventures and embrace unique cultural encounters. You can enjoy your ideal day ashore with the hand-picked experiences we offer. Find out more →
Drinks at the bar
Say ‘cheers’ and raise a glass, whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply enjoying another stunning sunset. Each of our ships has a variety of venues, from traditional pubs to elegant wine bars, all offering competitively priced drinks.
Whether you’re thinking of having a flutter for the first time or you’re a regular at the tables, our casinos offer a welcoming and vibrant experience in a chic setting. You can’t use on-board spending money, but there’s a £5 welcome bonus when you play £20 at the slots and you can earn free house drinks as you play.
Explore the unique restaurants of your ship and try each tempting menu. Prices vary depending on the venue you choose.
The Non-alcoholic drinks package
From a poolside mocktail to a primo Costa coffee, take your pick from a huge range of refreshing soft drinks for a fixed price per day. We also offer a Children’s drinks package which includes unlimited selected soft drinks.
Stay in for dinner, enjoy a snack and drink on your balcony or savour a lazy breakfast in bed. Small plates start from £1.25.
