The offers are part of a brand new ‘this way for more memories’ promotion which runs from December 21, 2017 to March 5, 2018.

The offers coincide with P&O Cruises peak turn of year booking period and rewards guests in a variety of ways including extra on board spending money on every Select Price outside cabin, balcony or suite, low deposits of just 5% on Select Price bookings for outside cabins, balconies or suites on cruises of 35 nights and under plus great prices across a range of fare types.

P&O’s cruise ship Oceana’s January 31st, 2019 cruise departure from Dubai is included in the Select Prince promotion. The Dubai & Arabian Gulf fly-cruise package is for £1,499 per person based on a 10-night cruise round trip from Dubai on Oceana departing January 31, 2019 plus £220 per cabin to spend on board.

The price per person will be lower for Middle East cruise passengers boarding in Dubai without the fly and cruise option.

Guests can use their additional on board spending money to enhance their holiday experience in a number of ways such as purchasing shore excursions, drinks at the bar, spa treatments, hair and beauty appointments, gym classes, purchases from the on board shops, dining in the speciality restaurants or on wine with dinner.
