What is an overland tour?

Overlands are tours that generally operate during an active cruise, typically World Cruises. Participants will depart the ship in one port and return in another. The tours typically take place during sea days to ensure you get the most out of your tour and port days*.

Overlands are a great way to allow you the chance to see big "bucket list" sights not possible on regular tour itineraries.




  • Well planned, end to end itineraries
  • Expert guides to give the best local experience
  • Venture further afield with confidence
  • Carefully selected local operators, airlines and accommodations
  • See once in a lifetime sights while missing sea days, not ports **
  • Fully inclusive of flights, hotels, meals and refreshments **


How to Book

To view and book the overland tours available for your cruise please visit My P&O Cruises

Please note that when booking an overland tour with double accommodation, both guests will need to purchase a ticket on Cruise Personaliser or My P&O Cruises, as the cost is per person, not per room.



If you have an overland that is on waitlist and it becomes available, you will be notified by email and have 72 hours to purchase the overland.
