The launch of P&O Cruises' winter 2020-2021 season is supported by a brand new TV advertising campaign featuring Rob Brydon’s character Huw and his wife Jenny. It is destination-focused and showcases cultural experiences, with several evening scenes to highlight an extended time in port. 

The winter deployment of Iona means passengers can “extend their summer” via sailing south to Portugal, Spain, and the Canaries for winter sun and visit port cities in Northern Europe. Day-into-night calls and overnights are regular features of the ship’s winter season. 

Prices start from GBP 899 per person for a 14-night Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands trip or GBP 499 per person for a 7-night Northern European City Escape from Southampton UK.
