Set sail in true British style with P&O Cruises World Cruising

Globetrotting Kiwis can discover the seven seas in classic British style and sophistication on one of P&O Cruises World Cruising’s newly released 2014 world sailings.

The cruise line’s 2014 world cruise program features three cruises, with ships Aurora and Arcadia sailing on full world circumnavigations, while Adonia will sail east for an in-depth exploration of the Mediterranean, Middle East and Asia.

On sale from September 4, the three cruises from Southampton will visit a total of 81 destinations in 41 countries during itineraries ranging from 92 to 112 nights.

Aurora’s 109-night circumnavigation departs January 4, 2014, calling at 33 ports in 22 countries. Her itinerary includes maiden calls to Xiamen, China and Hoi An, Vietnam as well as seven extended overnight calls to vibrant ports such as Cape Town, Hong Kong and Dubai.

With fares from $24,939* per person twin share for the full circumnavigation, the cruise also features numerous fly-cruise opportunities and a variety of land tours.

For a shorter, but equally grand adventure, Arcadia’s 92-night world circumnavigation, departing January 10, 2014 visits 28 ports in 20 countries.

Priced from $20,709* per person twin share for the full circumnavigation, the cruise offers passengers a blend of popular and exotic destinations such as Bora Bora, Singapore, Muscat and Cairo that will tempt even the most well-travelled explorer.

With Aurora and Arcadia both visiting Auckland and the Bay of Islands while in New Zealand waters, as well as a combined total of seven Australian ports, fare options for cruise segments also include:
