Explore the rich history of P&O Cruises!
One of the world’s most loved cruise lines, P&O Cruises can trace its history back over 180 years. Through pictures and words, this book tells the story of how P&O helped shape global transportation.
With a fleet of liners that undertook voyages to all corners of the globe, P&O was instrumental in immigration to India, Australia and New Zealand, while acting as a gateway between Britain and the world.
After the advent of jet aircraft, this venerable company reorganised their services, offering pleasure cruises. Throughout their cruising history P&O has operated some of the most famous passenger ships of all time, including the Oriana and Canberra. In Australia, P&O held a near monopoly during the 1980’s and 1990’s with their ship the Fairstar.
Today, part of the giant Carnival Corporation, P&O Cruises has grown, offering British based cruises, world voyages and a specialist Australian subsidiary that sails into the South Pacific. With hundreds of original photographs from the Henderson & Cremer collection, A Photographic History of P&O Cruises has been fully updated in 2024 to cover the events of recent years including the COVID-19 pandemic. This 2nd edition is a unique addition to any maritime library.
