P&O Cruises’ new LNG-powered cruise ship Iona is to feature the line’s first-ever three-deck-high glass Grand Atrium, its first British gastropub venue, a ‘foodie’ market and a top deck glass SkyDome entertainment venue when she launches in May 2020.

Currently under construction at Meyer Werft’s shipyard in Germany, Iona will be designed to meet the tastes of British guests and will offer multiple innovations and new venues.


Located on decks 16 and 17, the line’s SkyDome entertainment venue has been designed by British engineers Eckersley O’Callaghan, the team behind London’s Embassy Gardens Sky Pool.
