P&O Cruises is offering a new collection of exotic fly-cruise holidays on four ships in early 2013. 50 new holidays are on offer on Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Azura.

These exotic cruises are presented in a new Winter Holidays brochure, combined with cruises on the other three ships in the P&O Cruises fleet – Oceana, Oriana and Ventura – offering holidays throughout the winter to the Caribbean, Canary Islands and Mediterranean.

All cruises in the Winter Holidays brochure can be viewed online at www.pocruises.co.uk. Cruises on Oceana, Oriana and Ventura are on sale now and the new exotic cruises can be booked from July 15, 2011.

The new exotic fly-cruise holidays combine iconic, far-flung destinations and start from just 13 nights in duration and £989 per person, based on Azura’s Mumbai to Singapore, calling in Colombo, Langkawi, Bangkok (from Laem Chabang) and Singapore.

Free on board spending money, which increases per person depending on the grade of cabin booked, and Early Booking savings are available for bookings made before November 30, 2011. In addition, an extra 10% discount is available for bookings made by August 31, 2011.

A video news release highlighting the popularity and growth of exotic holidays is available on the P&O Cruises YouTube channel and Facebook page. It can be downloaded for hosting on independent sites from www.youtube.com/pandocruises. Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said: “These exotic fly-cruise holidays are perfect for those who unfortunately can’t be away for more than a few weeks but want to explore a particular part of the world, on a cruise that is tailor made to combine some of the world’s most exciting destinations.

“No other kind of holiday offers the chance to visit destinations such as Singapore, Bali, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney in little more than two weeks without having to live out of a backpack or take several long flights. Passengers simply wake up in all these different destinations and the days in between are spent relaxing at sea. It is a leisurely way to explore the world and one that more and more people are enjoying each year.

“Time of year is a key factor when choosing a holiday and with more people taking a winter holiday it was a logical step for us to introduce this new brochure which contains all our winter programme between October to April 2012/13.”
