Iona, Coming 2020

P&O Cruises proudly announce name of their newest ship, IONA

Paul Ludlow, Senior Vice President of P&O Cruises was in location in Iona, Scotland to announce the name of the newest addition to the P&O Cruises fleet, Iona. Iona, a new 180,00gt ship accommodating 5,200 passengers, is scheduled to depart on her inaugural cruise in May 2020.

Ludlow said: 'Iona is known for its peace and tranquillity, stunning landscape and, most importantly, the view of the ocean from almost every point on the island. This mirrors our primary intention when building the ship, which was to make the sea the star.'

He went on; 'Throughout the design process we were mindful that we were building a ship, not a hotel, and the intrinsic beauty of the sea, the vistas of the coastlines and ports of call should be at the fore and visible as much as possible from all areas of the ship.'

A few insider glimpses into the new ship

The emphasis will be on food, drink and entertainment.
It will feature a half-mile "Lanai" deck -- an outdoor, covered promenade that will include alfresco restaurants and bars.
The triple-deck glass Atrium will be a focal point of the ship; along with grand staircase, a gallery and overhead walkways.
A giant dome on top of the ship will be one of four onboard entertainment spaces, featuring aerial performances, projections onto the roof and immersive shows.
The ship will have 17 eateries, including seven speciality restaurants, 12 bars, 13 entertainment venues, three pop-up entertainment spaces/venues, four swimming pools and 16 whirlpools.
Iona will go on sale in September. Call us on +27 11 463 3293 to secure your booking.
