P&O Cruises to name Arvia in a world-first beachside event!
P&O Cruises will officially name its newest ship Arvia in the spectacular beachside ceremony in Barbados on Thursday March 16, 2023.
The event, which will include some of Britain’s most contemporary, popular performers and presenters, will be broadcast live online to a global audience.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “We always aim to do things differently, to create stand out and memorable moments for our current and future guests.
“Arvia, which will be delivered in December, will spend her first season sailing in the Caribbean so it is fitting that we mark her naming in one of our favourite ports of call with a week of celebratory performances and experiences on board.
“This naming event, which has never been done before, will showcase our extraordinary new ship Arvia, the beauty of Barbados and will include some very special surprises.
“The ship will be positioned off one of the island’s most stunning beaches so the audience at home will be able to see both the striking new interior design of the ship as well as the performances and events taking place on the shore. It will be an unmissable event.”
Prime Minister of Barbados, The Honourable Mia Amor Mottley said: “I want to thank
P&O Cruises for choosing Barbados as the location for this unique event. Barbados continues to share a rich relationship with our sea and tourism, and the cruise industry has been of vital importance to our island and our economy.”
“I am delighted that Barbados can be that place that continues to bring more “firsts” to the world, and through this beachside ceremony, give thousands of people the opportunity to see a glimpse of what we have to offer to visitors.”
The naming event will take place during a 14/7 night Caribbean cruise (K305A/K305C)and is available to book on www.pocruises.com or through a travel agent or by calling 03453 555 111
Details of how to watch the naming event live online will be announced nearer the time.
