P&O Cruises launches three new Wellbeing and Lifestyle cruises from Southampton

P&O Cruises has announced the launch of three new Wellbeing and Lifestyle cruises in collaboration with TV presenter and women’s health advocate, Cherry Healey, and stylist Kat Farmer.

The cruises are scheduled for 2024 and will be held in Spain, Portugal, and the Mediterranean, focusing on various aspects of wellness, including mind, body, sleep, face, and other lifestyle advice. The decision to offer these wellness cruises was partly influenced by research conducted by P&O Cruises, which revealed that personal health and wellbeing often take a backseat to other priorities, even among bosses. Despite feeling tired, stressed, and lacking proper sleep, only one in five Brits are dedicating a brief 30 minutes per week to ‘self-care.’

Workshops on these cruises will cover a range of topics, such as mindfulness, skincare, wardrobe essentials, breathwork, stillness, and meditation. Cherry Healey and Kat Farmer will be joined by special guests, including make-up artist Hannah Martin and fitness educator Sarah Gorman.

Cherry Healey said, ‘I’m so thrilled to be bringing everything l’ve learned over the past 15 years working in the wellness space to a series of workshops curated specifically for P&O Cruises guests. From how to get great quality sleep, to the best skin of your life, to knowing which of the latest supplements to take and why, we will be sending people home refreshed, rejuvenated and feeling their absolute best!’

Sarah Gorman said, ‘You have one body and it is your responsibility to treat it well. Look after the vessel that takes you through this life and it will look after you. My sessions will give you some of my favourite tips and advice to aid your holistic wellbeing.’
