Iona was built to be the largest ship catering for the UK cruise market, and with a maximum capacity of 5,200 guests, she is certainly up there among the world’s largest cruise ships. Whilst Iona does boast an array of innovative and exciting features onboard, including the SkyDome and fantastic glass-walled atrium, she also manages to convey the authentic British atmosphere that fans of P&O Cruises know and love.
With 15 restaurants to choose from, 13 entertainment venues, and seven different accommodation types, the ship certainly manages to cater to a wide range of cruisers. Public spaces are warm and welcoming, as is the well-thought-out design of the cabins and suites. The Conservatory Mini-suite is a particular favourite, with a generous conservatory-style area which opens out onto a balcony as well.
