How much luggage can I bring on my P&O Cruise?
Very important question here. P&O recommends that each passenger bring no more than two bags on board with them with each bag being no larger than 140 x 60 x 40cm and no heavier than 32kg. If you're cruising from home, that's fine. But if there are flights involved with your cruise, don't forget that your luggage must comply with the rules of your air flight.
Do I need travel insurance for my P&O Cruise?
Cruises aren't always covered by standard travel insurance policies, so we'd recommend reading our guide about travel insurance for P&O Cruises to make sure you're getting the right level of cover.
How much money do I need for my P&O Cruise?
Most things have already been taken care of before you even set sail (room, board etc.). All you really need to consider is how much money you'll be spending on activities. How much you bring will depend on what you plan to do while on the ship and what package you've purchased. When onboard, you won't have to bring cash with you either as every passenger is provided with a personalised Cruise Card, which you can settle at the end of the cruise using your credit or debit card. It's important to know that at the end of each day onboard, pre-authorisations are made to your account on the amounts you've purchased. These are not actual charges, but holds to ensure that you have sufficient funds to pay off your final bill. At the end of the cruise, you'll be charged the full amount in one transaction.
How does P&O Cruises booking confirmation work?
Once you’ve made your booking, you’ll need to pay a deposit to confirm your reservation. The deposit must be received by P&O Cruises within three days of making the reservation, or your booking will be cancelled. The final payment must be made 75 days before departure (unless you’ve booked a minute deal).
What forms of payment does P&O Cruises accept?
You can pay for your cruise with:
Any extras you would like to purchase onboard can be paid for with cash or card.
How do I cancel or alter my P&O booking?
If you’d like to cancel your booking, or make changes once you’ve booked, you can do so by logging into your account on the P&O cruises website. You can also contact customer service by phone. Cancellation fees may apply, and the amount for this will vary depending on how many days prior to departure the cancellation is made. Check with P&O Cruises if you’re not sure.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
