P&O Cruises announces new-look Strictly themed cruises in 2014

P&O Cruises popular Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises, in partnership with BBC Worldwide Ltd, have just got bigger and better. New for 2014, the Strictly cruises will be packed with more stars and more sparkle than ever before. Each of this year’s four dedicated cruises will have two pairs of the programme’s professional dancers, legendary acerbic judge Craig Revel Horwood, and one of the show’s past celebrity contestants, travelling at different stages to offer a Strictly experience to remember.

Passengers can dust off their dance shoes, release their inner tango and learn to rumba with Robin Windsor, waltz with Ian Waite or cha cha cha with Camilla Dallerup. Regular dance classes will be on offer throughout the cruise and passengers can participate in a dance competition, with the grand finale performances taking place in the main theatre, judged by Craig and the special celebrity guest.

The Strictly stars will give up close and personal interviews on board, photo opportunities and signing sessions, and official Strictly Come Dancing showcases produced by BBC Worldwide. A stunning selection of costumes from the television show will also be on display around the ship, with organised fashion events to showcase them at their very best.
