Ludlow: ‘UK series will provide memorable getaways’

Ludlow: ‘UK series will provide memorable getaways’

Among the itineraries on offer is the maiden voyage of Iona – the largest ship ever built for the UK market at 5,200 passengers and P&O’s first Excel-class LNG-powered vessel.


Departing Southampton on 7 August, guests will take in a week of coastal cruising to Scotland, including the Inner Hebrides and the island of Iona (pictured).


Guests can also opt for a seven-night sailing onboard Iona, cruising past the Channel Islands and along the coast of France.


Customers are able to transfer their holiday as many times as they like before balance due date - 30 days prior to the departure date of the cruise.


P&O Cruises president, Paul Ludlow, said: “Given recent announcements we have every hope that our guests will be able to enjoy a holiday this summer. After the stresses and challenges of the past year everyone certainly deserves a treat and this series of cruises will provide memorable and much needed UK getaways.


“Whilst there is still uncertainty about holidays abroad this summer, we are delighted to be able to offer our guests the ultimate escape here in the UK with the reassurance that we will take care of everything. Also, we really will look at the weather forecast each cruise and aim to take our ships where it is warm and sunny.


"As the start of Iona’s very special maiden season, the new Ultimate Escape series of holidays includes a memorable seven night maiden voyage sailing around the Scottish islands. Iona will anchor off Iona, the island after which she was named, with a celebratory extended stay until sunset for magical views of the historic shores."
