Cruise ship to feature bungee trampolines!!

Passengers will be able to fly high above sea level on bungee trampolines and flying trapeze on P&O Cruises new family-friendly ship Ventura.

The line is to run Cirque Ventura – claimed to be the first circus school at sea – on board the ship which is launched in April.

Located high up on deck 19, highly skilled performers will run workshops with a host of exciting activities on offer including tight wire, acro balance, clowning, break-dancing, juggling and stilt walking.

The area will be equipped with four bungee trampolines, which will enable passengers to soar 60 metres above sea level, and a flying trapeze.

On each cruise workshop teachers and passengers will have the chance to perform in a special presentation.

Cirque Ventura will be operated in partnership with leading UK circus skills firm the Generating Company.

P&O Cruises managing director, Nigel Esdale said: “Cirque Ventura is set to be a firm favourite and is just one of a host of innovations on board Ventura.

“Any guest aged eight and over will have the chance to ‘run away with the circus’ and learn some innovative skills.”

“We are delighted to be working with the Generating Company and look forward to seeing Ventura’s circus school come alive with all the excitement and colour of a contemporary circus.”

Activities include: static trapeze, flying trapeze, aerial hoop, clowning and slapstick, break dancing, juggling and hoola hoop, acro balancing, tight wire, Chinese pole, stilts and bungee trampoline
