“Strictly Come Dancing” is back on board P&O Cruises in 2017

“Strictly Come Dancing” is back on board P&O Cruises in 2017 for more dazzling performances across the Med and Baltic from some of your favourite professional dancers and the outspoken judges everyone loves to hate.

Guests can sit back and enjoy the sizzling shows, or get in on the action and try the Tango, Quickstep or Salsa.

P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: “We are the only holiday company to have this partnership with one of the country’s best loved shows and these Strictly themed cruises appeal to people who can dance, want to learn to dance or just like to admire the glitz and glamour in person.”

2017 dates for P&O Cruises Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises include:

· A 14-night Western Mediterranean cruise on Azura (A708) departing April 2, 2017. Prices start from £1,199 per person.

· A 14 night Western Mediterranean cruise on Ventura (N711) departing April 30, 2017. Prices start from £1,199 per person.

· A 14-night Baltic cruise on Britannia (B716) departing June 4, 2017. Prices start from £1,449 per person.

· A 14-night Central Mediterranean cruise on Britannia (B718) departing June 25, 2017. Prices start from £1,399 per person.

The Strictly professional dancers and judges who will be on board each cruise will be announced later in the year.

In association with BBC Worldwide, each cruise will feature a guest judge and four of the BBC’s show’s favourite professional dancers with the opportunity to meet them and maybe learn a move or two from the experts themselves during the regular dance classes on board.

The Strictly team will offer up close and personal interviews on board, photo and meet and greet opportunities, and spectacular Strictly Come Dancing showcase performances produced by BBC Worldwide.

P&O Cruises will also be joined by a team from DanceSport International, suppliers of dresses and costumes to the show. A stunning selection of these costumes will be on display around the ship, and available to buy, with organised fashion events to showcase them at their very best.

The highlight of the two-week cruises is the passenger dance competition which culminates in a grand finale performance in the ship’s main theatre, with a judging panel including a Strictly professional dancer and guest judge.
