Can I book on board and what are the benefits?

There's no better place to plan your next holiday. Here are our top reasons why it's best to book on board:
  • Have a preferred agent? Don't worry, your usual travel agent will still handle your booking once you are back home. We send your agent an email confirmation once your deposit is paid. 
  • Exclusive benefits! When you book a Select Price holiday on board you'll enjoy exclusive benefits, such as low deposit options and extra on-board spending money. 
  • We are the experts. Our knowledgeable team live on our ships and have first-hand experience of the amazing destinations we offer. Our team are available every day of your holiday, so you can even book the day before your holiday ends.

If you book a P&O Cruises Select Fare, the first two guests on each booking receive on board spending money - the amount of which depends on the length of the cruise:

  • 4 - 7 nights on board = £25pp 
  • 8 - 14 nights on board = £50pp 
  • 15 - 21 nights on board = £75pp 
  • 22 or more nights on board = £100pp 

Low deposit options available:

Nights  OBS Deposit per person
3-7 £50pp
8-14 £100pp
15-21 £150pp
22+ £300pp
The above benefits are not available when booking an Early Saver, Late Saver or any other promotional fare. Should you wish to transfer your booking made on board, the on board booking benefits will be lost, as these will not be carried over to a subsequent booking which is not made on board.
