P&O Cruises UK is enhancing its offerings for the autumn half-term in 2025 with the aim of attracting more families to its cruise ships.

The cruise line has scheduled three 7-night roundtrips from Southampton England, specifically catering to families whose children attend schools in different countries within the UK. These voyages are set to embark on October 18, October 25, and November 1, 2025, coinciding with different October half-term breaks in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and England.

A spokesperson for P&O UK noted that this arrangement will result in a more significant number of holidays departing during this period, catering to diverse preferences.

Ruth Venn, P&O Cruises' sales director, said they had tried to put 3 consecutive sailings to cover each of 3 half terms. 

In addition, P&O UK plans to revisit 12 ports, including Los Angeles, Melbourne, Benoa Bali Indonesia, Bodo Norway and Port Chalmers/Dunedin NZ, for the first time in 5 years or more during the 2025-2026 season.

The program also introduces two new itineraries for MV Britannia, with prices starting at GBP 1399 per person, featuring calls in destinations like Jamaica, Grand Turks  and Dominicana.

From January 2026, Arcadia will embark on a 100-night Circumnavigation World Cruise for the first time in 9 years. This voyage will include stops at 28 destinations, including Dubai, Singapore, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Dunedin, Auckland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, with prices starting at GBP 9,599 per person.

Additionally, P&O UK will make its first visit to Tangier Morocco, when Azura calls there as part of her itinerary from Valletta Malta.

Cruise reservations made by December 4 will enjoy a 10% discount, with past guests who have sailed with P&O Cruises for 15 nights or more eligible for an additional 5% discount on selected sailings.
