P&O Cruises To Add Union Jacks And Blue Funnels To The Fleet


P&O Cruises will add the longest version of the Union Jack flag anywhere in the world, spanning 94m to the hull of Britannia.

From the end of 2014 the cruise lines other ships will also start to sport the new look design which will also see the funnels painted blue and decorated with the company rising sun logo. The logo will also be illuminated just to add another twist to the design.

P&O said this “depicts the Oriental part of the Peninsular and Oriental name”.

David Dingle, P&O Cruises chief executive officer said “the new livery symbolises all that we stand for, pointing to the future and celebrating our British heritage. This bold new look will make our ships yet more distinctive and recognisable across the world”.

Aurora will sport the new design first when she leaves dry-dock later this year. She will be followed by Britannia.

What are your thoughts on this?

    I think it looks classy and shows P and O are not ashamed to be British based not like Cunard.

    My first thought was yuk, how tacky. Its going to be as horrible as the stupid lips on the German ships. I dont really like the designs on the NCL ships either. Cruise ships look really smart when they are just white. But seeing the pics of what it will look like, it looks tastefully done. I like it.

    Better than the monstrosities that are around at present. Huge lips arrgh, Empire State Building etc etc.

It's been quite a while since I spent time aboard Oceana, but she's still my little lady. This photo was taken during a Caribbean cruise in 2015. I was sitting in my favourite spot, taking in the raw beauty that Mother Nature was offering. What could be better than this? Seriously! 😍 ❤⚓🌅 . . . . . #passportforlife #inspiredtravels #cruiseblog #worldwonder #tagsta_travel #mytravelgram #worldplaces #postcardsfromtheworld #dametraveler #darlingescapes #travellushes #globelletravels #womenwhoexplore #femaletravelbloggers #doyoutravel #influencer #roamtheplanet #openmyworld #mytinyatlas #travelblogger #passionpassport #worldingram #cruiseships #cruise #gtt
Peekaboo! 😍 I met this cheeky little bird on #HamiltonIsland in the #Whitsundays. #cockatoos in that part of the world are as common a sight as pigeons are in the UK, only far more attractive! I was having lunch at a local restaurant and the birds were everywhere, waiting to steal food at the first chance they got. One couple made the mistake of leaving their freshly served food unattended on the table and within seconds a swarm of cockatoos had picked the plates clean! This little devil in the photo was one of them! So beautiful, but so naughty!! 🤣⚓❤ . . . . #roamtheplanet #femaletravelbloggers #womenwhoexplore #girlsgoneglobal #visualsoflife #flashesofdelight #destinationearth #travelgirl #mytinyatlas #globelletravels #wandermore #exploretocreate #wanderingsoul #PostcardsFromTheWorld #TravelTheWorld #girlswhotravel #earthfocus #wishyouwerehere #passionpassport #travelista #travelforlife #TravelDeeper #openmyworld #MyTravelGram #meettheworld #gtt
