Opera star Katherine Jenkins has been signed by P&O Cruises to perform later this year on two European cruises.

The mezzo-soprano from Wales will perform on Oriana four-night sailings that leaves Southampton on October 31 and November 27 and sail to Zeebrugge and Amsterdam. Winner of two Classic Brit Awards for album of the year in 2005 and 2006, Ms Jenkins studied at the Royal Academy of Music and she has also modelled in the past.

Tickets for the adults-only cruises will go on sale on May 1 and start from £399 per person. In the rush to get tickets to see the opera star, people should also make sure they don't forget to arrange cruise travel insurance.

"These short breaks provide the opportunity for an indulgent weekend of fine dining, pampering in the spa, time to explore the ports, rounding it all off with a very special performance from the world's most prolific classical crossover artist Katherine Jenkins," P&O's managing director Carol Marlow said.
