Encore! Singing superstar Russell Watson signs up for two more P&O Cruises concerts in 2013

After the success of his first seagoing concert, Russell Watson, Britain's classical singing star, is to perform on two P&O Cruises short breaks in 2013.

The world famous tenor will appear on new three and four-night sailings from Southampton in May and July.

The first departure is a three-night cruise to Belgium and Guernsey on Aurora on 18 May, and the second sailing will see Russell Watson perform on Azura on a four-night cruise departing on 5 July, calling at the same destinations.

In addition to the performance, passengers on Azura can book pre- or post-performance dinner in celebrity chef Atul Kochhar’s Sindhu restaurant, or Marco Pierre White’s Cafe Bordeaux on Aurora.

The first port of call at Zeebrugge gives passengers the day to explore the city of Bruges with the possibility of travelling further afield to visit Brussels, Ghent or Ypres. The second call in St Peter Port provides a gateway to the island of Guernsey.

Russell Watson, who first sang on a P&O Cruises voyage in Ddcember 2011,  has been in the spotlight since 1999 when his performance of World Cup anthem “Nessun Dorma” at a Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium received a standing ovation.

The former Salford factory worker has since sold millions of records worldwide and has performed for some of the most influential people of our time, as well as facing two life–threatening illnesses in the last five years.
The Russell Watson cruise itineraries, on sale from November 1, are:

  • A three-night cruise on board Aurora (R305), departing May 18, 2013. Itinerary: Southampton, Zeebrugge, St Peter Port, Southampton. Prices from £299 per person
  • A four-night cruise on board Azura (A316N), departing July 5, 2013. Itinerary: Southampton, Zeebrugge, St Peter Port, Southampton. Prices from £399 per person
