P&O Cruises’ incredible new cruise ship Arvia will sail its maiden season in the Caribbean. The cruise ship will feature a high ropes course at sea, a swim-up bar, an infinity pool, and a retractable dome over the main pool. The vessel will have 20 dining options and is being called the “epitome of a sunshine resort” at sea.
Arvia will launch in December 2022 and begin sailing in the Caribbean from January until March 2023. The cruise ship will sail from Barbados and Antigua and will feature port stops in La Romana, Curacao, Martinique, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and St. Maarten.
The cruise ship’s seven and 14-night fly/cruises from the UK also all include an overnight call in Barbados. 22 night trips departing from or returning to Southampton with UK flights are also available.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “Arvia holidays, alongside the rest of our winter 2022 season, will be on sale very shortly. We cannot wait to bring our newest ship to our glorious home port of Barbados and also to Antigua, which will be a first-time turnaround port for P&O Cruises.
“The Caribbean is the optimal maiden season destination for Arvia; a ship where every facet, including unique retractable roof SkyDome and Altitude Skywalk high ropes, is designed to provide exceptional views of the ocean, seashore and surrounding destinations.
“From the very initial concept Arvia has been created to be the epitome of a sunshine resort, developed to be an ideal way to enjoy the Caribbean’s turquoise waters and white sandy beaches like never before.”
P&O Cruises is one of nine cruise lines owned by Carnival Corporation. Arvia will be one of the cruise line’s largest ships at over 180,000 gross tons.
