P&O Ferries has added a quirky twist to some of its North Sea sailings in 2019 that’s sure to be a hit with music fans.
That’s because the ferry line will be offering a host of themed mini cruises, each paying tribute to different music genres and acts.
Highlights include an 80s themed party cruise, a sailing with live DJs, a journey through Hollywood’s greatest hits, and even a tribute to Elvis Presley.
The sailings will take place on selected dates in November and December, and with prices starting from £59pp it can make for a budget-friendly and fun way to travel.
