Further – and hopefully FINAL – Update, 22 Aug: I think I’ve now got my head around this. Basically, I’d completely forgotten that we already know all about 2017; this, despite doing a post some months ago analysing Oceana’s planned cruises for that year…. As far as I can see, there was a press conference […]

It’s time to look at the Cunard 2017 schedules, and in particular the Mediterranean fly cruises.

P&O 2017 Schedules announced

P&O 2017 Itineraries

Update 8 March 6pm: Iglu Cruises seems to have removed them from their site – at least, they’re no longer available by searching for a 2017 cruise reference number.
