P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said: “Bruges, with its cobbled streets, historic buildings and renowned Christmas market selling traditional gifts is ideal for a pre Christmas getaway. Amsterdam in the winter is a spectacular sight with ice rinks and many superb bars and restaurants. Combined with all the entertainment and fine dining on board the ships these breaks are an ideal early Christmas gift, treat or New Year getaway spa break. Plus they are fantastic value so perfect for groups or larger families to travel together."

About P&O Cruises
P&O Cruises can trace its roots back to 1837 and 2012 marks the 175th anniversary of when the Peninsular Steam Navigation Company was awarded the lucrative Admiralty contract to carry mail to the Iberian Peninsula and beyond. Not long afterwards the concept of cruising was born and since then has evolved into a popular holiday choice. Today, as trusted cruise experts, P&O Cruises has a fleet of seven ships offering holidays tailored to British tastes combining genuine service, a sense of occasion and attention to detail, ensuring passengers have the holiday of a lifetime, every time. On July 3, 2012, P&O Cruises celebrated its 175 of heritage with The Grand Event, seeing all seven ships berthed in Southampton for the first time. Ushering in an exciting new era for P&O Cruises, a new 141,000 ton as yet unnamed ship will be added to the fleet in spring 2015.
