P&O UK's newest ship Arvia will offer a range of entertainment firsts, such as WaveLength, an interactive gameshow starring presenter/game show host Ben Shephard.

Exclusively created for P&O and hosted in The Headliner’s Theatre, WaveLength game show gives passengers the chance to find out how well they know each other as they are trying to match their partner’s answers.

Arvia is the world's only place where passengers are able to watch Greatest Days – The Official Take That Musical. This adaptation of the West End musical The Band features the songs of Take That, and is a story by Tim Firth (Olivier Award-winning writer).

Arvia’s Altitude is an outdoor adventure zone designed for families. Located at top deck/deck 19, at Altitude families can enjoy the aquapark Splash Valley, where shade and sprinklers make it the perfect spot on a hot day with great views. Set 54 m / 177 ft above the sea level, Altitude Skywalk is P&O fleet's ever-first Ropes Course with a series of rope walks and various routes suiting all levels. Altitude Minigolf is the tropical island-themed Mini-Golf Course - all day open and illuminated at night. 

The unique experience Mission Control is exclusive to the Arvia ship and is set onboard the fictional submarine "Arvia II". It combines an escape game and a live-action story with multimedia simulation to create an underwater challenge. The 3D surroundings take guests to the depths of the ocean, where they are able to overcome danger and solve problems.
