The stars of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing will be sparkling bright again this summer as they cruise the Mediterranean and northern Europe with P&O.
Ringmaster Craig Revel Horwood will be in charge of the dancing circus once more for all four Strictly cruises. Professional dancers and competing passengers will be on tiptoes waiting for him to pronounce the verdict: “FAB-U-LOUS, daaaahlings!”
Last year’s winner Ore Oduba is reunited with partner Joanne Clifton on board P&O Cruises’ Ventura for a 14-night cruise to the Western Mediterranean, departing April 30. They will be joined by Giovanni Pernice, Neil and Katya Jones, AJ Pritchard, and Chloe Hewitt. Fares from £999 per person
Joanne’s brother Kevin and his wife Karen will be on a 14-night Med cruise aboard Azura, sailing on April 2. They will dance against Pernice, Oti Mabuse, and Gorka Marquez.
A 14-night Britannia cruise to the Baltic departing June 4 features Pernice and Mabuse along with Janette Manrara, Aljaz Skorjanek, and Oksana Platero. Fares from £1,229.
Finally, Manrara and Skorjanec, Karen and Kevin, plus Natalie Lowe, join Revel Horwood for a 14-night Western Med cruise departing June 25. Prices from £1,249.
In addition to spectacular Strictly Come Dancing showcase performances, the team will offer interviews on board and opportunities for photos with passengers.
P&O Cruises’ Paul Ludlow said: “As the only holiday company to have this partnership with one of the country’s best loved shows, we are thrilled to welcome Craig Revel Horwood and the Strictly dancers back on board.
“We are also delighted to have last year’s winner Ore join us on board. These Strictly themed cruises have huge appeal – those who can dance, those who want to learn to dance or those who just like to sit back and admire the glitz and glamour in person.
