Barbados to host naming ceremony for P&O Cruises’ Arvia

December 7, 2022

P&O Cruises’ new ship, Arvia is to have its naming ceremony in Barbados rather than in its home port.

The ceremony is to be held March 16th next year.

The company says the vessel is the first P&O cruise ship in recent years not to be named in Southampton.

Arvia can carry 5200 guests and 1800 crew.

P&O Cruises President Paul Ludlow says it is fitting they mark its naming in one of the company’s favourite ports of call.

Fuelled by liquefied natural gas, the ship will sail its inaugural winter cruises from Southampton before heading to Barbados.
