What entertainment is available on board?

P&O Cruises offers the very best in cruise entertainment. Days can be filled with as much or as little as you want, whilst evenings are no doubt the social highlight.


With a range of activities and entertainment taking place throughout the day, you’ll struggle to fit everything in. From dazzling West-End style performances in the ship's theatres to comedy and live music, piano recitals and tribute bands. Cinema and film screenings, dance classes, pub quizzes, sports tournaments, cookery demonstrations and even special interest seminars you’ll be spoilt for choice. On Arvia, there will also be a submarine style escape room, Mission Control (£20 for adults, £10 for children), plus a high ropes course, Altitude SkyWalk, 54m above the ocean (Please note the minimum height for the high ropes course is 1.4 meters).


You’ll also find traditional card and table games, along with the latest slot machines in our casinos and if you are in the mood for dancing, head for one of our themed nightclubs with where the bars are well stocked with your favourite refreshments.


Thankfully, you don’t need to remember when and where everything is taking place – Horizon; your ship’s daily newspaper is delivered to your cabin and contains a full list of activities. Of course, some days you just want to relax with a good book from the library and do nothing at all. On these days you’ll find plenty of comfortable sun lounges outside and soft chairs inside to simply relax and do nothing at all.


As Arvia’s arrival draws closer, we’re thrilled to announce the latest addition to her line-up of show-stopping entertainment: Greatest Days by Tim Firth. The Official Take That Musical. Arvia is the only cruise line in the world where you can watch this captivating feel-good show, an adaptation of the acclaimed West End musical The Band, featuring the songs of Take That and a beautiful story by Olivier Award-winning writer Tim Firth. Greatest Days is named in celebration of the upcoming film adaptation of The Band and will be brought to life by an amazing cast, handpicked from our Headliners Theatre performers. You can learn more here.


Cabaret acts are not finalised until very close to sailing. There is normally a comedian, a vocalist and a speciality act (either a musician or magician) on most cruises. Cabaret acts are only usually on-board for approximately 5 nights.


There are various tribute acts on all our ships. 


Please be aware, the reservation will only show in the "My Orders" section for the guest who made the order, even if a guest made a reservation for multiple guests on the booking.
