He will be taking part in a question and answer session on board, running photo sessions and giving guests the chance to see his demonstrations in the theatre. For a lucky 10, he will be running a private masterclass on the Azura cruise only.

Lanlard is a big fan of cruising, he says:

“I have been on many cruises and love them, it’s a great way to travel and see different places in a short time. I am so excited to be working with the team at P&O Cruises, I love sharing my passion for my work, meeting new people and of course I love being on the ships, come and join me!”
