Previous themed mini cruises

Previous themed mini cruises include:

  • Northern Soul mini cruise - Enjoy fantastic entertainment from Keith Fletcher (BBC Radio / Blackpool Tower Soul Weekender), Ginger Taylor (Blackpool Tower Soul Weekender / The Ritz Brighouse), Danny Clegg (Jersey Soul Weekender / Mill At Croston), Carol Gilboy (The North West's No.1 Female DJ), Steve Gainey and Roman.These great DJs will provide the musical entertainment each night, playing you all the Northern Soul & Motown greats from 9pm until late. DJs will be appearing in the Sunset Lounge on Deck 8 and Soul Music will also be playing in our Sky Lounge on Deck 12.
  • Murder Mystery mini cruise - Fancy yourself as Miss Marple, Inspector Clouseau or even as Jessica Fletcher? This mini cruise sailing is the perfect choice if you love your crime dramas. Edwina Weston was a singer, a dancer and the showcase star of the West End and Broadway. She died at the ripe age of 85. One of her dying wishes was to have her ashes scattered at sea and her solicitor Marcus Jeffrey is on-board your cruise to see that this is done. It's a double whammy too as he has also been instructed to read out her will afterwards. She has left a sizeable estate and there is a lot of interest. There's a deep and dark plot afoot and it's your job to sniff out the truth.
  • Fawlty Towers mini cruise - If you could have sworn you have stayed in a hotel run by Basil Fawlty before then you really will appreciate this themed mini cruise. It's a regular mini cruise with the added hilarity of a team of professional comedians who take on the personalities of Basil, Sybil and Manuel offering non-stop laughter and fun. This is a perfect getaway for those that love Basil (and can empathise with Sybil!).

This deal is available but it won't hang around for long. Book as early as you can to get the best choice of dates and cheapest prices. I have been advised this deal is due to expire on Sunday 10th December 2023. If you think the deal is no longer available please let me know and I'll let everyone else know.

The dull-but-necessary small print

All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.

    • I'm not aware of any bulb fields tours from either P&O or DFDS. DFDS do run a mini cruise to Keukenhof Gardens but I'm not sure if this is quite what you had in mind?

    • That sounds like it should be a lot of fun! The themed mini cruise schedule usually gets released between 3 and 6 months ahead of time, so you should find out whether anything suitable is running between January and March 2019.

    • I've nagged P&O for their list of April/May/June themed mini cruises but as yet I don't have any details. I think they'll surface in early April. As soon as details are released, I'll update this page with the dates and lead-in prices.

  1. The mini cruises I would love to go on i.e Madness and the Jam and the Northern Soul cruises are never during school holidays. As I work in a school I miss out on these cruises every year. To have one during half term once in a while would be good.

    • Having spoken to a P&O manager, it sounds like they will be running more of these themed events through the year. As a dad myself, I hope they will consider running these through half term although I suspect they would need to theme the entertainment accordingly to appeal to the wider family market.

  2. I am looking for a theme mini cruise in September for my partnered 50th birthday can't find murder mystery or faulty towers or many of the other are there any themed ones on September 2027 please

    • I've had a look and there's no themed cruises to Bruges scheduled until November 2017. I checked the Amsterdam route and the next themed cruise there is in December.
