P&O unveils design details of its newest ship

P&O Cruises has unveiled details of its new 5,200-guest ship, including a new entertainment and dining hub called The Dome.

The all-weather venue, which will be under a clear sky dome, will have a pool with a retractable stage, water feature and whirlpools.

At night, it will be used for aerial performances, roof projections and immersive shows.

The unnamed ship, which enters service in early summer 2020, will have glass walls over three decks bringing natural light into its signature Atrium.

There will be 17 places to eat, 12 places to drink, three outside swimming pools and one indoor pool.

Cruises will go on sale in autumn 2018.

P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: "Understanding the psychographic - the mindset - of our current and future guests is the key - acknowledging and realising what they want from a holiday and then providing it for them.

"Our vision is to offer the next generation of British guests the holiday of a lifetime on the next generation of P&O Cruises ships. This new ship will bring an array of new cruising experiences to guests and attract newcomers to our brand, whilst instantly resonating with forward-thinking guests, encapsulating the 'P&O-ness' they recognise and love."

The plans were unveiled at an event last night. Go to this link to see a video.
