Having joined the P&O Cruises fleet in December 2022 as its second LNG-powered, Excel-class ship, Arvia has officially been named by Nicole Scherzinger in a ceremony in Barbados.
Chart-topper Olly Murs performed his best loved hits at the ceremony, which was held both on board Arvia’s SkyDome and from Heywoods Beach. The event was hosted by two of the UK’s most popular broadcasters and DJs, Sara Cox and Trevor Nelson.
Arvia, meaning ‘from the seashore,’ is an innovative and future-focused ship and the latest evolution in the P&O Cruises experience, embodying the newest trends in travel, dining and entertainment to offer varied and contemporary holidays.
The ship boasts a unique SkyDome with a retractable glass roof and 16 guest decks, and features the first Altitude Skywalk high ropes experience, the tropical-themed Altitude Minigolf, the Altitude Splash Valley aquazone, an outdoor Sports Arena, swim-up bar and infinity pool. It also offers guests several new dining options such as Green & Co feat. Mizuhana, Ocean Studios cinema, extensive shopping, and the Oasis Spa and Health Club.
Arvia is currently offering a Caribbean maiden season of fly-cruise holidays from homeport Barbados.
