Strictly Come Dancing pros take over P&O Cruises for 2019 routes – Dianne Buswell stars

Cruise routes are set to be accompanied by saucy Salsas, charming Charlestons and a cheeky Cha Cha Cha or two as the Strictly Come Dancing stars host their own themed holidays on P&O Cruises. The company has revealed four separate routes, featuring a host of well-loved professionals from the BBC One show. Taking to the decks to strut their stuff will be Giovanni Pernice, Luba Mushtuk, Gorka Marquez, Karen Clifton, Amy Dowden, Janette Manrara, Aljaž Skorjanec, Neil Jones, Katya Jones and Johannes Radebe. The Greatest Dancer judge Oti Mabuse will also feature.

Meanwhile Dianne Buswell, who found romance in the latest Strictly series with Vlogger Joe Sugg, will star, with more high profile names yet to be announced.

The professionals will take to the stage to dazzle passengers heading to stunning locations across the Mediterranean, including Spain, Italy, France and Monaco.

First they will show off their own perfectly-choreographed routines before hosting private one to one tutorials with guests.

for those who don’t fancy dance floor action, they can opt for a swanky dinner hosted by one of the dancers or an autograph session.

To round off the sequin studded themed holiday there will be a Strictly Come Dancing competition, which culminates in the Grand Final in the ship’s theatre.

P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “Holidays are all about making memories and having extraordinary experiences away from the daily routine.

“Our Strictly cruises are the epitome of this.

“With nearly 13 million viewers tuning into the 2018 Strictly Come Dancing final, it’s very clear that the show continues to be a firm favourite with the British public.

“As the only holiday company to have this partnership with Strictly Come Dancing we are delighted to welcome Craig Revel Horwood and the pro dancers back on board to add some Strictly pizzazz and enduring memories to our guests’ holidays.”

The routes run through spring and summer and can be booked on the company’s website.
