P&O Arvia departure from Meyer Werft Shipyard, Germany: 8th November 2022

dpa lighting consultants are immensely proud to have worked on P&O Cruises newest ship Arvia, the sister ship to Iona, which departed the Meyer Werft shipyard, Germany bound for Eemshaven, Netherlands for her conveyancing on 8th November 2022 and is scheduled for delivery during December 2022. dpa have been in collaboration with P&O Cruises and working in association with Jestico + Whiles, Partner Ship Design and Richmond International, designers of the front of house guest areas for this new 184,700 tonnes ship.

Like Iona, Arvia is powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), therefore significantly reducing carbon emissions.  At 345 metres long, Arvia will have an operating capacity of 5,200 guests and 1,800 crew, designed to capture unprecedented panoramic views across the ever-changing seascape, at every available opportunity. She will be the first ship of her kind to feature a Sky Dome with retractable roof, spanning a vast performance and recreation area at the top of the ship. Altogether, Arvia will be the epitome of a sunshine resort sailing year-round to the warmest climates.
