Today is a momentous occasion for Arvia and all of us at P&O Cruises and Carnival UK as, for the first time ever, we’ll hold a beachside naming ceremony in Barbados to mark the naming of our spectacular new sunshine ship.

The special star-studded celebration will take place at 19:00 GMT this evening, with events taking place in Arvia’s SkyDome and at beautiful Heywoods Beach. And the whole event will be streamed live on the P&O Cruises YouTube channel, so you can join in at home and watch every moment as it unfolds.

The event will be hosted by two of Britain’s most popular and well-respected broadcasters, Sara Cox and Trevor Nelson, and will also feature a special performance by multi-talented singer and TV presenter Olly Murs. Not forgetting a unique performance by Arvia’s amazing godmother, the multi award-winning, multi platinum-selling singer, songwriter, actress, dancer and TV personality, Nicole Scherzinger!

Join in the celebrations and watch live at home!
