Rock out to the 80s

Ah, the 80s. What a time to be Livin’ On a Prayer. If you’re someone whose go-to karaoke songs include Queen, Bon Jovi, Whitney or Madonna, then our 80s themed cruises will make all your Sweet Dreams come true at once.

P&O has rolled out a series of dedicated 1980s three-night Tribute Cruises to celebrate the best of the MTV-generation’s music from pop, hip-hop, metal and rock. Rock out to performances from authentic 1980s bands, dance the night away to incredible tribute acts, and enjoy all the glitz and glamour from the decade when more was well, more!

Captain’s Tip: Dance the night away at our specialty parties, show your True Colours at the fancy dress, and enjoy screenings of the best TV shows and films from the decade – after all, P&O Cruiselings Just Want to Have Fun!
