With celebrated DJs including BBC Radio’s John Kane and Keith Fletcher, as well as a whole host of entertainment lined up from the likes of Tim Rabjohn (Costa Del Soul), Jools Metcalf (Venue 73 Brighouse), Danny Clegg (The Jersey Soul) and Babs Alton (Soul in the Dales), it’s not one to be missed.

Elvis and Buddy Mini Cruise to Amsterdam – 12th November

From Memphis to the West End, Mark Summers, known as the ‘Young Elvis’, is the UK’s official number one Elvis tribute. Pack those blue suede shoes and be ready to dance as he delivers hit after hit with all the swagger of the King himself.

The band behind the UK Buddy Holly Story, Buddy and the Blackjacks, will also be on board, taking to the Sunset Showbar Stage to perform hits such as Peggy Sue, That’ll Be the Day and Maybe Baby.

The Great Mini Cruise to Rotterdam – 15th November

Go on a journey not only to your destination, but to a celebration of all things great. The Greatest Movies, The Greatest Music, but above all… ‘The Greatest Show’. P&O Ferries’ entertainment team will perform an all singing, all dancing extravaganza which is all about “feeling good” and “being you”.

Starting with The Greatest Show, Pop Up Entertainment will perform all of the hits from the film. The Greatest Movies will take passengers on a journey through some of the greatest movies of all time including Grease, Dirty Dancing, A Star Is Born and Moulin Rouge. The Greatest Feeling will end the entertainment on board on a high with party feel-good classics.

80s Party Mini Cruise to Amsterdam – 13th December 

Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia, so dig out your leggings, plump up the shoulder pads, apply your eyeliner and join the 80’s themed Mini Cruise to Amsterdam for a throwback session.

Joining the line-up of class acts on the night will be True Gold – the world’s premier tribute to the music of New Romantic icons Spandau Ballet. Over the years they have established themselves as one of the most exciting and accurate tribute bands in the UK and the world’s only Spandau Ballet tribute endorsed by frontman Tony Hadley and the band Spandau Ballet themselves.

From Queen to The Proclaimers, from Soft Cell to Bryan Adams, be prepared to hear the songs that make you reminisce.

Sarah Rosier, Director of Passenger Sales for P&O Ferries said: “We’re thrilled to unveil our calendar of themed mini cruises, bringing new events, as well as old favourites to the North Sea throughout winter 2019, following their success in previous years. The holiday starts the moment you get on board and we encourage fans to book early to avoid disappointment.”

Aside from the musical entertainment, on board are a wide variety of facilities, with restaurants including The Kitchen featuring a vast buffet selection and The Brasserie for an a la carte dinner. Find time to grab a bargain from the on board shop, or you could even watch a film at the on board cinema.
