P&O launches competition to name new ship

P&O is offering the public the chance to name its new ship in a competition launched today.

The 180,000-ton ship, due to be launched in 2020, will be Britain's biggest and the cruiseline says it 'deserves a name that is worthy of its size and credentials'.

The competition to name the ship will run on the P&O Cruises website and through social media channels and a panel of  experts will consider all entries with the winning name being announced  next year.

To help inspire entrants, P&O Cruises has produced four short videos featuring Food Heroes Eric Lanlard and Olly Smith, producer and performer Jonathan Wilkes and Azura godmother and Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell CBE which can be viewed online.

The winner will get two VIP places at the ship's naming ceremony.
