Family-friendly activities

A P&O cruise offers a wide array of fun, safe, family-friendly activities - from waterslides and Kids’ Clubs to adventure parks and shore tours. Explore our incredible interactive waterparks, or join the adrenalin junkies at P&O Edge Adventure Park for some action-packed fun in the sun.

As well as an endless collection of fun activities, we offer a fantastic range of Kids Clubs for different age groups, all included in your fare. With help from professional childhood academics, we run daily activities specially designed for kids, from arts and crafts to music and sports. It's the perfect combination of learning, entertainment and fun and not to mention, new-found friends. Each Kids Club program features specialised, age-specific activities, and are supervised by experienced staff.
