Ships visiting Australia + S-E Asia: Arcadia | Aurora

The oldest cruise line in the world, British/American-owned P&O Cruises is based in Southampton, England. The line’s seven vessels provide all the trimmings that British passengers have come to expect. For most of the year cruises depart from Southampton, and are of 14 nights in duration. But cruises range from two nights to three months. In January each year three vessels embark on grand cruises that variously include the Americas, Far East, Australia and Pacific Ocean. Ventura, Arcadia and Oceana are contemporary and innovative, and focus on the first-time younger crowd as well as attracting seasoned cruisers. Aurora and Oriana offer a more traditional cruise experience. Arcadia and Oriana are child-free ships. Aurora, Azura, Oceana, Ventura and Britannia have family programs and child-friendly areas. Britannia is P&O’s largest vessel, which entered service in March 2015 to great fanfare.

P&O ships offer an expanding range of destinations: 270 ports in 90 countries. Passengers cruising on Ventura, Arcadia and Oceana can elect for traditional set seating or choose where to eat and when. Aurora and Oriana offer set seating. Aurora and Oceana also have two speciality restaurants each. As the ships sail from the U.K. for much of the year, the weather can be tricky. Ventura, Aurora, Arcadia and Oriana each have a swimming pool with a sliding glass roof. The pools on Oceana are open to the elements. The ships are known for carrying ballroom instructors. The fleet flies the British flag, but ships are registered in Bermuda to allow for weddings at sea. The passenger mix varies with the ship and length of cruise: but all are British. Recent awards include Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Pick 2014 for “Best for Families” and “Best Dining”.
