Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep to set sail with P&O Cruises on Iona
P&O Cruises is partnering with Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, to bring a range of character-based activities for all generations to newest ship Iona.
Children in The Reef clubs will be able to participate in themed dance classes and craft workshops where they can make Gromit ears or Shaun the Sheep masks. All the family can then come together for quality time to enjoy special screenings of the Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep films in the cinema, or have photos taken with the eccentric inventor Wallace and his loyal friend Gromit at special character appearances.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow commented: "It's not easy finding a holiday that caters to everyone's needs and when you're travelling with children, your happiness is linked to theirs.
"This new partnership with Aardman will further enhance our wide range of choice and flexibility for families allowing everyone to have the time of their lives whilst relaxing, recharging, making memories and spending quality time together."
All activities are included in the cost of the holiday and guests can find further details on board.
