Entertainment on board your ship


When dusk falls, it's time to play and your ship begins to come alive with the hum of conversation and music, so you can be sure of a memorable night. Enjoy a dazzling show, a cocktail or two, whirling roulettes or dancing under the stars, the choice is yours.

Introducing... Astonishing!

Stars of stage and screen were in Southampton for the premiere of Astonishing, a revolutionary magic and illusion show produced for P&O Cruises by BAFTA-winning presenter and entertainer Stephen Mulhern and performer Jonathan Wilkes.

Celebrities who attended the star studded premiere included ITV’s Declan Donnelly and his wife Ali Astall, Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard, singer Chesney Hawkes, Coronation Street’s Tristan Gemmill and Matilda Freeman as well as EastEnders and Holby City actress Nina Wadia.

Astonishing combines the production talents of Stephen and Jonathan Wilkes with the spectacular dance moves of leading choreographer Paul Domaine and the mind-blowing trickery of master illusionist Guy Barrett.

Enjoy a game of cards or perhaps a flutter on the roulette wheel


As night falls our casinos come alive. Featuring the latest in slot machines and gaming tables, our friendly croupiers are on hand to oversee the evening’s events. During the day there are gaming workshops for those who’ve never played before and at night, tournaments for those who believe Lady Luck is on their side. The gaming tables include Three Card Poker, Blackjack and of course, Roulette, one of the oldest and most popular games of chance.

Show stopping entertainment


As the curtain rises on board any P&O Cruises ship, what you’ll see on stage is a spectacular production, worthy of the West End. Performed by our dedicated theatre troop, Headliners Theatre Company, you can enjoy productions that include the very best of the musicals, sing along favourites from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and today, plus cleverly choreographed shows produced especially for P&O Cruises.

A wonderful choice of bars and show lounges

Guests enjoying drinks at the bar

From lively-late night tipples to a peaceful pre-dinner drink or an ice cold quencher out on deck, whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it on board with venues such as English style pubs, cocktail bars, wine bars and late night music venues. You'll find each venue has its own unique atmosphere with drinks to match.

Dance the night away

Late night music venues

If the repartee at dinner has put you in the mood for dancing, it's time to let loose in the late night music venues where you can dance the night away with DJs and live bands.

The Limelight Club

The Limelight Club is an adults only venue that combines great food with dazzling entertainment.

The Limelight Club

An experience to remember


The surroundings are sumptuous and you can expect a lively and enjoyable evening in the company of some great performers that you won’t see anywhere else on the ship - all while you enjoy the delights of the modern European menu. Later in the evening The Limelight Club turns into a late-night dancing venue, so you can enjoy a full evenings dining and entertainment without having to move around the ship. The dress code matches the laid-back atmosphere and it is smart casual every night, even on a black tie evening - a great choice for those seeking a less formal evening. Acts on your cruise will be confirmed approximately 90 days prior to sailing and can be viewed on Cruise Personaliser after booking.
