For the first time P&O Cruises Oceana will be offering year round cruise holidays to the Canary Islands, Eastern & Western Mediterranean, Fjords, Morocco and the Caribbean from Southampton.
Research amongst passengers has shown that cruising from Southampton is of particular interest to those looking for winter sun but without stepping foot in an airport.
Oceana will offer cruise holidays for all ages with durations from two to 35-nights from March 2011 to March 2012.
P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said: “There is nothing easier than cruising from the UK.
“Our passengers can be on board within 30 minutes of arriving at the Southampton terminal. And, with no luggage restrictions and bags delivered directly to the cabin, the holiday can begin the moment they step on board. Travel to the terminal in Southampton could not be easier with a choice of terminal car parking, a UK wide network of coaches and a mainline railway station as options. “
