Barbie joins P&O Cruises Arvia and Iona for the summer holidays

P&O Cruises has launched dedicated family zones across its five family-friendly ships for the duration of the 2023 summer holiday season with toys and activities available on board Arvia, Iona, Britannia, Azura and Ventura.

In partnership with Harding+, Arvia and Iona’s retail spaces will introduce a range of new children’s brands including Barbie, Hot Wheels Cars and Keycraft Pocket Money Toys. These new brands will join existing family favourites available on board, including Lego, Jellycat and TY Plush Toys.

Families can also capture even more unique holiday memories on Arvia and Iona with ‘instagrammable’ moments in a life-size Barbie box or spend time dressing up as their favourite characters with a variety of fancy-dress costumes from Rubies Masquerade UK.

Family zones on all five ships will offer families the opportunity to try their hand at more artistic pursuits with colouring competitions for children or adults alike.

On newest ship Arvia, families can enjoy the children’s splash pad, a tropical-island-themed mini-golf course, a daring high-ropes experience, and Mission Control, an immersive escape room experience set on a fictional submarine.

P&O Cruises also partners with Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, to bring a range of character-based activities for all generations to its family-friendly ships. This includes the first at-sea Wallace & Gromit show, All Hands on Deck! on Arvia, modelling and craft workshops, as well as Aardman film screenings.
