P&O Cruises’ new ship Arvia will sail a 14-night Canary Islands maiden voyage, the line has revealed, as it unveiled its first Canary Islands fly-cruises for winter 2022/2023.
Arvia’s maiden cruise, departing from and returning to Southampton, will be followed by a Canary Islands Christmas and New Year cruise in December 2022, before the ship transfers to the Caribbean for a season of seven and 14-night itineraries.
In a P&O first, winter sun Canary Islands fly-cruises from Tenerife will be available, with Azura sailing a programme of two alternating seven-night cruises that can be combined to create a 14-night holiday.
Meanwhile, Iona will sail a winter 2022 season of Spain, Portugal and Canary Islands voyages, featuring overnight calls in Lisbon or Barcelona, as well as European city breaks.
Arcadia will also depart on 3 January 2023 for a 99-night world cruise, calling at Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Tauranga in New Zealand and Kuala Lumpur (from Port Kelang).
A circumnavigation of South America is also available on Aurora’s 65-night cruise, departing 6 January 2023 and calling at Rio de Janeiro, Montevideo, San Antonio and Lima (from Callao), among other destinations.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “The first holidays on new ship Arvia, exemplifying design excellence and built for sunshine cruising, and our first-ever Canary Islands fly-cruises are just two of the exciting highlights of our winter 2022 programme.
“We’re all longing to get back to travelling the world so we’re making it as easy as possible to have a P&O Cruises holiday to look forward to.
“All our winter 2022 holidays are available with flexible booking terms, five per cent low deposit, plus the opportunity to spread the cost monthly at no additional cost.”
Pre-registration for winter 2022 holidays starts on 8 April 2021, with holidays on Arvia on sale from 21 April and the rest of the fleet from 28 April.
