P&O confirms arrival date of new ships






P&O Cruises will take delivery of its new ship, Iona, 'before the autumn', with its as yet unnamed sister vessel arriving in December 2022.


The Iona, at 185,000 tonnes and 345m long, is said to be largest ship ever built for the UK market.


P&O Cruises President, Paul Ludlow, said confirmation of the deliveries provides some certainty for the business.


"Whilst our operations as currently paused, we are delighted that we have more clarity on the arrival of these two new ships," he said.


"The final outfitting of Iona is almost complete and is looking stunning and we will take delivery of her before the autumn. We also now know that her sister ship will join the fleet at the end of 2022.


"Both ships are eagerly anticipated by our guests and we are seeing strong demand for the future. The space on these two ships will allow for extraordinary experiences; visual entertainment displays; new dining concepts and many new areas for relaxation and indulgence."


Itineraries for the second ship will go on sale in spring 2021.
