As well as fantastic Food Heroes cruises, P&O are also extremely popular for their Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises. On these select sailings guests get to meet the stars, see behind the scenes, take part in discussions and Q&A sessions with the judges, dancers and contestants, and even participate in dance classes.

Take a cruise with P&O Cruises and experience Strictly Come Dancing like never before. That’s right, Britain’s favourite cruise line has teamed up with one of Britain’s best-loved TV shows to create the ultimate cruising experience for you. 



Yes we've seen it on the TV, and it gives us great entertainment, but how fantastic would it be to be fully immersed in the show-stopping glitz of it all? If you know your toes tap when you hear that Strictly Come Dancing theme tune on the TV, you will feel right at home when learning the tantalising Tango, experience the sultry Salsa, or practising the whirling Waltz.

See the real costumes from the show, watch your favourite stars compete, or get involved in the action yourself and enter the onboard contest. You can even book private, one-on-one lessons with the professionals, or attend a dinner in one of the onboard speciality restaurants, hosted by a professional dancer. 


Not only are the Strictly cruises about the dancefloor, but you might just find yourself bumping into your Strictly favourites themselves either at breakfast or around the ship. Catch up on all the Strictly gossip, or get some great dance tips in their intimate Q&A sessions. The stars will also offer autograph and book signing sessions, and it's possible to book a place to have dinner in one of the speciality restaurants, which will be hosted by one of the dancers. 


There are more than ten professional dancers making appearances, including Giovanni Pernice, Karen Clifton, Aljaz Skorjanec, and Janette Manrara. Guests also won't be disappointed by the judges onboard, with Shirley Ballas on Ventura and Britannia and Craig Revel Horwood on Azura.

In the words of P&O themselves “You can’t feel closer to strictly than on a strictly themed P&O Cruises holiday.” Add some pizzazz to your next holiday & call our cruise experts for more information today. Or, get inspired by some of the other special themed P&O Cruises holidays.
