Take your partners for a Strictly cruise with Ori and Co.

Strictly Come Dancing champion Ori Oduba will be tripping the light fantastic with many of the show's professional stars when P&O Cruises takes the popular ballroom theme onto the High Seas again.

Craig Revel Horwood will once again be in charge as sequins and salsa take centre stage as the nation’s favourite dancing competition sets sail on a variety of cruises from April to June.

2016 winner Oduba will join Ventura on 30 April when he will be reunited with his Strictly pro partner Joanne Clifton.

In addition to Joanne, this year’s Strictly favourites who will be dancing on the decks include Giovanni Pernice and Oti Mabuse, Karen and Kevin Clifton, Gorka Marquez, Neil and Katya Jones, AJ Pritchard and Chloe Hewitt, Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec and Oksana Platero.

P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: “As the only holiday company to have this partnership with one of the country’s best loved shows, we are thrilled to welcome Craig Revel Horwood and the Strictly dancers back onboard. We are also delighted to have last year’s winner Ore join us on board. These Strictly themed cruises have huge appeal – those who can dance, those who want to learn to dance or those who just like to sit back and admire the glitz and glamour in person.”

This year, P&O Cruises has four dedicated Strictly Come Dancing themed cruises, in partnership with BBC Worldwide Ltd. Featuring all the pizzazz of the TV show, each cruise will host four of Strictly’s professional dancers, captivating guests with incredible, show-stopping routines.
