Q. Which hotels are available to book in Malta?

Extend your holiday in Malta by adding a hotel either before or after your cruise. You’ll have more time to explore the beautiful island, or just to take a few extra days to enjoy your well deserved break.

The key benefits of booking a package through P&O Cruises are:

  • Transfers between the ship, hotel and the airport are included
  • All local and state taxes, and porterage is included
  • Breakfast is included
  • A P&O Cruises local representative will be available at the hotel on the day you join/leave your ship
  • Local agents can be contacted 24/7 in case of emergency
  • Security of booking a package with P&O Cruises ensures you’re protected by ATOL


Please note:

Unless early check in has been paid for, we cannot guarantee that your room will be available upon arrival and standard hotel check in times apply. There will be somewhere to store your luggage at the hotel until your room is ready.

Rooms can be booked as either single or double occupancy; twin rooms can be requested but are not guaranteed. Higher occupancy, family rooms and upgraded room categories may be available upon request and subject to availability at the hotel.

City Stays do not include tours, but give you time to explore independently.


How to Book
