P&O Announces 2013 'Strictly' Cruises

November 15, 2012
(11:30 a.m. EDT) -- P&O Cruises will run seven “Strictly Come Dancing” cruises next year -- with acerbic judge Craig Revel Horwood present on every one.

Each themed cruise will feature a different pair of dancers appearing on five different ships from May to October, 2013. The professional dancers include: Ian Waite, Natalie Lowe, James and Ola Jordan, Pasha Kovalev, Robin Windsor, Camilla Dallerup, Kristina Rihanoff, Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova.

The cruises will be split between the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean and will be on Azura -- (whose godmother, Darcey Bussell, is also a judge on this year's show) -- Aurora, Ventura, Arcadia and Oceana.

Passengers will be able to see the costumes worn by the dancers, watch them perform, participate in the show -- and get judged by Revel Horwood.

It is the second year of P&O's hugely successful Strictly cruises, which all sail from Southampton and start from £1,179 for a 13-night Canary Islands cruise. --by Adam Coulter, U.K. Editor red arrow Find out what a Strictly Cruise is really like.
