Cruises from Australia and New Zealand

P&O UK’s Arcadia, an adults only ship, often cruises via Australia and New Zealand as part of her round world cruise.  However, neither her 2020 nor 2021 cruises currently have options to embark or disembark in a local port.  Check back later to see if there are any segments on offer that may give you the chance to try P&O Cruises UK locally.


P&O Cruise Ship on the SunsetMost cruises aboard one of P&O Cruises UK’s fleet of seven ships depart out of Southampton.  Oceana does, however, operate 7 night, 14 night and a handful of longer itineraries departing Valletta.  These cruises explore the Mediterranean between April and October each year and are one of the few cruise lines that operate regular departures from Malta.  From Southampton, P&O Cruises UK Europe cruises offer longer itineraries ranging between 10 and 24 nights that take you both to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.  You’ll find the largest number of 12 to 14 night itineraries, but their longer voyages and shorter 10 and 11 night sailings are just as popular. You can also embark on a short sampler cruise of 2 to 5 nights from Southampton or 7 night cruises visiting Norway and the west coast of mainland Europe.


P&O Cruises UK also offers long cruises to the Caribbean from Southampton, with voyages as long as 55 nights!  These are great in-depth discoveries of the Caribbean islands, which include an iconic Trans-Atlantic crossing to get you there and back.

World Cruising

Arcadia offers an annual world cruise departing in January each year from Southampton.  Check out our world cruises page for more information.
