Strictly come cruising with Carol

//Strictly come cruising with Carol

There’s been a flurry of announcements and press releases from P&O this week – recently-appointed boss Carol Marlow must be cracking the whip.
The latest is to let the world know the cruise line is looking for – and I quote – “Britain’s most twinkled-toed passengers,” who will be chosen to dance at the naming ceremony for the line’s newest ship, Azura, next April.
Throughout the winter, couples aboard Arcadia, Artemis, Aurora, Oceana, Oriana and Ventura will be able to enter a Strictly Come Dancing competition and the 12 best will then compete for the final six places on April 9.
Finalists will be invited on board Azura next day, and the ultimate winners will stay on board to perform at the naming ceremony.
Carol says “we look forward to some stiff and lively competition.” Make up your mind, Ms Marlow – do you want stiff or do you want lively? In dancing terms, they seem to be complete opposites.
And I wonder if P&O realise that Thomson Cruises have been running Strictly-style dance contests on its ships for a couple of years, albeit without the opportunity to win a place at a naming ceremony?
