Stellar line up for live broadcast of P&O Cruises ship naming
Chart-topper Olly Murs will lead the line up of performers at the beach-side naming ceremony of P&O Cruises newest ship Arvia in Barbados in March.
The award-winning singer will treat guests watching the live broadcast to his best-loved hits as he performs from Heywood’s Beach on Thursday March 16, 2023.
Hosting the ceremony, which will be conducted both on board Arvia and from the beach, will be two of the UK’s most famous broadcasters and DJs, Sara Cox and Trevor Nelson.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “For our guests watching Arvia’s naming ceremony from home and from Barbados this is a real treat. Olly, Sara and Trevor really do make a star-studded line up which showcases the contemporary entertainment for which P&O Cruises is known.”
Trevor Nelson will take centre stage in Arvia’s Skydome for assembled guests and will introduce the famous bottle smash moment with Arvia’s yet-to-be-revealed godmother while Sara Cox will host the guests on one of Barbados’ most stunning beaches.
Ludlow continued “It is not often that in the depths of UK winter you can be transported to a spectacular white sand, palm-fringed beach in the Caribbean and watch a live performance from one of Britain’s best-loved stars. It really will be a moment to remember.”
Both Trevor and Sara will be sailing on Arvia’s March 11 departure and will host late night DJ sets on board.
