Part One: P&O Cruise Liners

On 3rd July 2012, P&O marked its 175th year by sailing its seven cruise ships into Southampton for the fleet to be reviewed by The Princess Royal.

The ‘Grand Event’ was to be covered for this production but due to the atrocious weather it was not possible to film the events of the day.

Instead we take a look at each liner, individually, in more clement weather conditions.

Passing such familiar sights as East Cowes, the North Shore, the Solent, Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth.

Each chapter shows colour footage of the cruise ships and liners.

Also interior still shots of the reception areas, cabins, theatres and pool/deck areas.

All ships fly the Burmuda Flag.
