TV couple Huw and Jenny Jenkins star in a new P&O Cruises advert, that gives viewers a glimpse into the company’s Dubai and Arabian Gulf itineraries.
The spot, which debuted on TV on Monday evening (March 11th), during the ad break of ITV’s show Coronation Street, opens with Jenny getting ready to head out and asking her husband, Huw, to rush because they are going to be late. In the meantime, Huw finds some sand in his pocket, which makes him remember their Dubai & Arabian Gulf fly cruise holiday. Thus, they are seen enjoying a drive through the desert, visiting local markets and negotiating with sellers for souvenirs, doing scuba diving and watching sea turtles, visiting ancient mosques, spending time with locals, and enjoying exotic locations before returning to the cruise ship.
“The more you travel in life, the more life you have to remember,” the voiceover says at the end of the advert, which is scored by the 1992 hit single “Dreams” by Irish rock band The Cranberries, from their debut studio album, “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?”.
According to the travel company, from the modern city of Dubai, to calls in Bahrain and Oman, these majestic fly-cruises combine winter sunshine, iconic skylines, desert dunes and atmospheric souqs to stunning effect”. The price for a cruise includes flights and transfers, food (full board), events, gym, sports deck, luxury accommodation, pools & relaxation, dance classes, spectacular entertainment and children’s clubs.
