P&O Cruises announces performers & hosts for Arvia's Naming Ceremony later this month

P&O Cruises will officially name its newest ship Arvia in a spectacular beachside ceremony in Barbados on Thursday, March 16th 2023. The event, which will include some of Britain's most contemporary and popular performers and presenters, will be broadcast live online to a global audience.

“We always aim to do things differently, to create
stand-out and memorable moments for our current and future guests. Arvia, which was delivered in December, will spend her first season sailing in the Caribbean so it is fitting that we mark her naming in one of our favourite ports of call with a week of celebratory performances and experiences on board"
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow

The naming event, which has never been done like this before, will showcase their extraordinary new ship Arvia, in the beauty of Barbados and will include some very special surprises. The ship will be positioned off one of the island’s most stunning beaches so the audience at home will be able to see both the striking new interior design of the ship as well as the performances and events taking place on the shore. It will be an unmissable event.

“I want to thank P&O Cruises for choosing Barbados as the location for this unique event. Barbados
continues to share a rich relationship with our sea and tourism, and the cruise industry has
been of vital importance to our island and our economy.”
Prime Minister of Barbados, The Honourable Mia Amor Mottley

Chart-topper Olly Murs will lead the lineup of performers at the beach-side naming ceremony of Arvia later this month. The award-winning singer will treat guests watching the live broadcast to his best-loved hits as he performs from Heywood’s Beach. Hosting the ceremony, which will be conducted both on board Arvia and from the beach, will be two of the UK’s most famous broadcasters and DJs, Sara Cox and Trevor Nelson.

Trevor Nelson will take centre stage in Arvia's Skydome for assembled guests and will introduce the famous bottle smash moment with Arvia's yet-to-be-revealed godmother while Sara Cox will host the guests on one of Barbados’ most stunning beaches. Both Trevor and Sara will be sailing on Arvia’s March 11 departure and will host late-night DJ sets on board.
