P&O Cruises has announced the line-up for its hugely popular Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises in 2015. This year's professional finalists include Karen Hauer, Kevin Clifton and Kristina Rihanoff as well as series winner Pasha Kovalev.
In 2015, P&O Cruises has four dedicated Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises, in partnership with BBC Worldwide Ltd. Each cruise will feature four of the show’s favourite professional dancers with the opportunity to meet them and maybe learn a move or two from the experts themselves during the regular dance classes. Also joining each cruise will be a guest judge, and a special celebrity guest to offer a Strictly experience to remember.
The Strictly stars will offer up close and personal interviews on board, photo and meet and greet opportunities, and spectacular Strictly Come Dancing showcase performances produced by BBC Worldwide. We will also be joined again on all cruises by a team from DanceSport International, official designers and suppliers of dresses and costumes to the show: a stunning selection of these costumes will be on display around the ship, and available to buy, with organised fashion events to showcase them at their very best.
Passengers can also participate in a dance competition culminating in grand finale performances in the ship’s main theatre, with a judging panel including the Strictly celebrity and guest judge.
