P&O Cruises has introduced two new Caribbean itineraries out of Southampton to its second edition 2009/10 brochure.

The voyages depart from Southampton and last around five weeks instead of the traditional world voyage.

The first cruise will leave on January 8, 2010, sailing around the Caribbean islands and central American ports. It will call in at destinations such as Barbados, St. Lucia and Montego Bay. Prices start from £2,499 per person.

The second cruise visits 13 ports over 35 nights and calls in at New Orleans, Grand Cayman, St, Maarten and others.

The ship sails on February 13, 2010,  and prices start from £2,399 per person. P&O Cruises managing director Nigel Esdale said: “They should be highlighted to customers who want a Caribbean holiday without having to set foot on an aeroplane.”

There is also an early booking discount of 45% available until November 30, 2008.
