P&O Cruises can trace its roots back to 1837 and 2012 will mark the 175th anniversary of when the Peninsular Steam Navigation Company was awarded the lucrative Admiralty contract to carry mail to the Iberian Peninsula and beyond.
To celebrate, P&O Cruises is offering a special 175th anniversary discount of up to 10% on its cruise holidays during the peak “wave” period of December, January and February.
Prices will start from £599 for a seven night cruise, such as Ventura’s March 25 cruise to Spain and France, and £949 for a 14 night cruise such as Azura’s November 5 cruise to Gibraltar, Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.
World cruises are also included in the anniversary sale with on board credit of up to £1100 available on bookings.
P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said: “2012 is an exciting year for us and we can’t wait to celebrate the heritage of our brand on all cruises next year. We are pleased to be offering passengers real value prices from £599 with this special anniversary discount of up to 10%.”
