A new ship is coming in 2020.

In 2020, P&O Cruises will make history once again when we introduce Britain’s largest cruise ship, offering guests the holiday of a lifetime on the next generation of P&O Cruises ships.

This 180,000-ton ship will offer more choice of accommodation, more places to dine in style, more spaces to relax, more entertainment and more freedom to make your holiday your own – wherever you are in the world.

A holiday on this ship could be a spa break, a sightseeing trip, a foodie tour, time to relax in the sun or a combination of everything. Whichever holiday you choose, it will be full of memories and ‘this is the life’ moments of friendship, togetherness and away-from-it-all freedom.

This exceptional ship, which will also be the most environmentally efficient ship in our history, needs a name worthy of its size and credentials. Something memorable, dignified and reflecting its position as the new star in our fleet.

Who better to name this ship than those of you who will be sailing on board?

There are no rules and no parameters, so get your thinking caps on and send us your suggestions by 31 July 2017. To enter, click here.

Our judges – a panel of esteemed experts and our brand partners – will judge the entries following the closing date and the winning name will be announced early next year.


Your prize – glory and two VIP places at the naming event

Naming our ship is a prize that money can’t buy. It’s also your chance to be part of history as the name you choose will be proudly emblazoned for everyone to see for years to come as this magnificent ship sails around the world. You will also win two VIP places at the ship’s naming ceremony in spring 2020. It will certainly be a party to remember.
