P&O Cruises Celebrates 180 Years Of Heritage With 2017 World Cruises

P&O Cruises has launched its 2017 World Cruise Collection featuring two full world circumnavigations aboard Aurora and Arcadia.

The 2017 World Cruise Collection also features a 180th anniversary celebration cruise on Aurora, exotic fly cruises and Australasian journeys and a 50-night cruise round trip Southampton to the Caribbean, USA and Amazon.

Aurora World Circumnavigation

In the year that P&O Cruises celebrates 180 years of heritage, Aurora’s world circumnavigation will be particularly poignant. Echoing the trade routes of the British Empire, Aurora will sail a 104-night eastern circumnavigation from Southampton calling at 35 destinations in 21 countries and sailing nearly 30,000 nautical miles.

Aurora’s world circumnavigation cruise will feature 23 new ports of call (compared with her 2016 world cruise), four overnight stays in Dubai, Singapore, Sydney and San Francisco and seven evening calls.

She will sail under the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, transit both the Suez and Panama canals and sail into Sydney Harbour.

Aurora departs on her 104-night sailing on January 9, 2017.

Arcadia World Circumnavigation

Arcadia’s 114-night Polynesian and Asian Adventure is a full world western circumnavigation from Southampton calling at 37 destinations in 21 countries and sailing over 36,000 nautical miles. The cruise will feature 22 new ports of call (compared with Arcadia’s 2016 world cruise), five overnight stays in San Francisco, Auckland, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore and nine evening calls.

Like Aurora, Arcadia will also sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and transit both the Suez and Panama canals.

Arcadia departs on her 114-night sailing on January 2, 2017.

Oriana’s Caribbean and Amazon Adventure

Oriana will sail round trip from Southampton on this 50-night cruise and will call at 17 destinations in 13 countries in the Caribbean, the USA and South America - she will sail over 14,000 nautical miles including 1,500 nautical miles on the Amazon over six days. The itinerary features 10 new ports of call, compared with her 50-night cruise in 2016. Highlights of the cruise include calls at Bermuda, New Orleans and Manaus as well as cruising the mighty Amazon.
