P&O Cruises


Helpful Hints

P&O cruises are steeped in British traditions. Afternoon tea is a daily affair, and passengers dress formally for dinner on designated nights.

Onshore excursions can be booked up to three days prior to sailing with the cruise’s reservation center.

Table seating for four, six, or eight is allocated using a computer system. Groups or families wanting to sit together must book with the restaurant manager using the same dining link code. Couples should book well in advance to ensure a table for two, which may not always be available.

You can bring your own bottles of wine and champagne into the dining room, bar or lounge, but expect a £10 corkage fee charged to your onboard account.

Diabetic, lactose intolerant, or have food allergies? P&O chefs can customize special meals as long as you make arrangements in advance.
