Friday Cruise News - 11th September 2015

Unlike last week, there has been plenty to talk about this week but again we will only pick out the most relevant news stories of the week for your perusal. This week’s main focus is on the stars, television stars, ballroom dancing stars, and the Travel Bulletin Star Awards.


Travel Bulletin Star Awards

On Monday, the 19th Annual Travel Bulletin Star Awards were held at the Landmark Hotel in London and here are the award winners that we work with;

Congratulations to all of the cruise lines that won one of these awards, we are pleased to work with you and we fully understand why each of you won an award!

Strictly Come Dancing Is Back Onboard

Both of the two cruise ship competitions that were announced were on P&O cruise ships, and they are very pleased to announce that they will run a series of four ‘Strictly come Dancing’ cruises which will feature appearances from the stars, the judges and celebrity guests.

Each cruise will have demonstrations and competitions that passengers can partake and enter in so if you think you’re up to the challenge of dancing like a ballroom professional then these offers will be very appealing to you.

BattleChefs - New to P&O Cruises

Another competition that is to come to P&O, and to your tv screens on UKTV, is the new BattleChefs program which will see 10 celebrities battling it out with their culinary skills all under the watchful eye of celeb judge, Marco Pierre White.

The show will be filmed over two Mediterranean Cruises on the Britannia in 2016, so each cruise will feature its own self-contained competition with 5 amateur celebrity chefs who will assume the role of head chef and prepare a meal for the Captain and his VIP guests.

Their competitors will help prepare the meal, but as they also get a chance to score each other, will they play tactically as they fight it out to become Battlechefs Champion?
