175 years of P&O Celebrated

Posted on Monday, December 3, 2012 |

P&O celebrated 175 years on the 3rd of July with a gathering of the 7 P&O UK ships in the mega-cruise port of Southampton. From humble beginnings as the Peninsular Steam Company, P&O has grown into one of the world's leading cruise lines, and its ships played roles in the two World Wars. The festivities included Princess Anne conducting a fleet review and well-wishers lining the shores despite rain! The ships all left Southampton together for special anniversary-themed cruises.
