P&O Cruises’ Iona hosting summer 2021 Festival show

New P&O Cruises' vessel Iona will host aerial displays and DJ sets next summer
Aerial shows, DJs and new movie releases will be hosted on P&O Cruises’ newest vessel Iona next summer in an interactive show dubbed Festival.

Created and produced by singer, performer and producer Jonathan Wilkes and creative director Paul Domaine, the interactive show called Festival will comprise music, choreography, stomping wellies and LED technology.

‘Festival is the perfect uplifting show about two groups of friends who meet at a Festival,’ said Wilkes, ‘It takes the audience on their journey, transporting everyone to those heady days of summer and will make you want to party the night away long after the show ends.’ 

Other entertainment highlights on board Iona are set to include:

Aerial shows

Three new aerial and acrobatic shows entitled Triboo, Dream and Rise are planned for Iona’s maiden season, to be performed in the Grand Atrium and SkyDome. The latter is located on decks 16 and 17 and features a pool and a retractable stage. 

It comes following the cruise line’s collaboration with performance company, Creativiva. 

Ocean Studios

Four cinema screens running throughout the day will show a mix of classics and recent blockbusters, with the latest surround sound technology. 

The 710 Club

Curated and crafted by Gary Barlow, the 710 Club on Iona will showcase fresh talent. 

Other activities across the ship include archery, beat boxing, character appearances, silent discos and theatre shows.
