Wallace & Gromit-themed entertainment appearing onboard P&O Cruises’ Iona

Dedicated screenings of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, themed dance classes and craft workshops will take place onboard Iona
Special screenings of Wallace & Gromit and themed craft workshops for children will be held onboard P&O Cruises’ Iona, owing to a partnership between the line and creators of the animated films, Aardman.

‘It’s not easy finding a holiday that caters to everyone’s needs,’ explained Paul Ludlow, president, P&O Cruises. ‘This new partnership with Aardman will further enhance our wide range of choice and flexibility for families…’

Multi-generational entertainment

The entertainment is suitable for all ages, with the dedicated screenings of the Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep films held in the onboard cinema. Passengers can also have their photos taken with the characters when they make guest appearances.

Entertainment for children

In addition to the character-based activities for all generations, children in The Reef clubs will have the opportunity to participate in themed dance classes and craft workshops where they can make Gromit ears or Shaun the Sheep masks.

Cruises for school holidays

P&O Crusies has also scheduled cruises that target the school holidays: Iona departs on a ‘school holidays’ cruise from Southampton on August 6, 2022, calling Stavanger, Olden, Geiranger and Haugesund as part of its fjords voyage. The seven-night itinerary includes kids' clubs, full board meals and entertainment with prices from £699 per adult, £599 per child and £49 per infant for an inside cabin.
