Iona 360 Virtual Tour


P&O Cruises aim to bring the outside in with a half-mile long covered promenade. This Lanai Deck will have glass walls spanning three decks to allow natural light to flood the central atrium as well as alfresco dining venues and intimate hideaways. All accommodation will be designed by the contemporary design practice Acumen of London.

A major new entertainment hub called The Dome will be one of the star attractions of our new ship. Featuring an impressive roof and a pool with a retractable stage the Dome offers a unique space whatever the weather. By day, The Dome is the perfect place for entertainment, relaxation and informal dining. By night, the Dome will come alive with aerial performances and immersive shows.

The ship will offer new levels of entertainment, dining and relaxation, and features a host of innovative features and cutting-edge technology to wow you with new cruising experiences.

The signature heart of the ship, the Atrium, will be P&O Cruises boldest and brightest yet. Glass walls spanning three decks will let natural light flood in while a grand staircase, gallery and overhead walkways will provide dramatic focal points.
