See the solar eclipse & Northern Lights with P&O Cruises

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

P&O Cruises is offering a rare opportunity to witness two natural phenomenons in one unique holiday; to see a total solar eclipse and, with luck, spot the elusive aurora borealis.

Exclusively for adults, join Oriana’s 14-night cruise departing from Southampton on March 17, 2015 on its scenic quest to the remote Faroe Islands and northern Norway before returning back to Southampton.


With a full solar eclipse taking place on March 20, 2015, Oriana will be berthed in Torshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands and the best place to view the last total solar eclipse for over a decade in Europe.

Oriana will then cruise to and stay overnight in both Tromsø and Alta, known as ‘the town of the Northern Lights’ where a huge choice of excursions are on offer including a husky adventure, reindeer sledging, snow mobile rides, a visit to an ice hotel and dedicated trips in search of the Northern Lights with an expert guide.

Select Prices for the 14-night solar eclipse & Northern Lights cruise on Oriana (X506N) start from £1,799 per person based on two sharing with £140 free on board spending money per cabin. To book, visit, call 0843 373 0111 or visit your local travel agent.

Book before November 30, 2014 and Early Saver prices are available from £1,349 per person.
