Entertainment Features Announced for P&O Arvia

P&O Cruises new Arvia will offer guests a range of entertainment firsts, including WaveLength, a new interactive gameshow, virtually starring presenter and game show host Ben Shephard, according to a press release.

Created exclusively for P&O Cruises and hosted in The Headliner’s Theatre, WaveLength will give guests the opportunity to find out how well they know each other as they try to match their partner’s answers.

Ben Shephard said: “Having hosted many game shows on TV, I’m excited to have partnered with P&O Cruises in evolving this prime time style TV game show into a live, interactive theatre experience. Developed with Triple Brew, who have created shows like The Million Pound Cube and Lingo, WaveLength is designed to be both entertaining and challenging.

“I can’t wait for guests to enjoy playing along with myself and my on-board co-host, competing to see if they truly are on the same ‘WaveLength’, and trying to outsmart me in Beat Ben!”
