IONA – P&O Cruises names its newest cruise ship—

P&O Cruises love the Isle of Iona so much they named their newest and largest cruise ship after it!

Almost 30,000 people entered the competition to name the ship but it was the tranquil island in the Inner Hebrides that caught the imagination and the perfect celebration of the sea and our island nation.

The ship will enter service in 2020, will weigh in at 180,000 tons, carry 5,200 passengers and have more than 15 places to eat including 8 speciality restaurants.
