P&O Iona vegan staycation surprise: amazing plantbased options (part 2)

If the first part of my food review from P&O Cruises’ newest XL class ship Iona didn’t convince you – perhaps the last three days of my week, and the food I had, will. So easy to be vegan onboard this great ship! I cannot wait to be back on P&O – and indeed have a couple of bookings already.

If you are not from the UK and are unfamiliar with the brand, P&O are British cruise line, serving pretty much exclusively British guests but they are owned by the Carnival Cruise Line Corporation. Yet, big cousins Carnival and Princess do NOT cater to the level that P&O UK does. For US readers, the only agent that I know who sells P&O in the US is VacationsToGo. Do be aware that while the fare might seem high, it does include all the tips, port fees and taxes and drink pricing is affordable by comparison.

P&O Iona vegan staycation surprise: amazing plantbased options (part 1)

I am a convert, evangecally so. I have not sailed with P&O before but this August we just had to try the new Iona. And I am smitten. She is a beautiful ship and my goodness, how well did I eat? The plantbased options for us vegans onboard Iona are fantastic. I have never had as an easy time on a mainstream cruise line (apart from an all-vegan 100% vegan charter cruise ) as I did on Iona this year. You won’t believe the range, even lots of desserts! Here, see days one to four and all of the great food I enjoyed. And do come back for the second installment. You’ll be booking Iona too for your vegan cruising – I already have two more to look forward to!

P&O ‘My Holiday’ app is launched as Carnival upgrades theirs

Appy cruising! How did we ever manage without cruise line apps? They make such a difference to our day onboard. Reducing the need to queue to the guest services or having to ring (who wants to call people?) restaurants when you can just book it online? Safe to say, I am so happy to see the one cruise line that hasn’t had one before has finally entered the current century with P&O ‘My Holiday’ app. Meanwhile, big cousin Carnival in the US has revamped their fabulous 4yo app to include even more cool functions.
