Have your say

Stand along our lovely seafronts next Tuesday and you’ll be in for a treat.

For the first time ever, all seven P&O cruise ships will pass our shores to celebrate the company’s 175th anniversary.

To think, when Oriana entered service, it was just her and Canberra.

Today almost 20 different cruise ships sail from our waters, showing how popular the cruise industry is today.

In fact, the biggest ship to serve Britain sails past every other week – Independence of the Seas at 150,000 tonnes.

The second big white ship to sail past on Tuesday will be Ventura.

We will be on board for our honeymoon, so please give us a wave!
