12 September 2018

Cruising from Australia for 85 years, P&O Cruises continues to offer contemporary holidays with a distinctly Australian flavour to world-class destinations. Look for P&O’s signature interior designs and finishes, exceptional food & wine options including Asian fusion, Italian, modern Australian & seafood cuisine, a comprehensive live music & entertainment program, waterslides, waterparks, an abundance of onshore activities, over 80 unique itineraries and a relaxed resort style atmosphere onboard.

Discover the hidden gems of the South Pacific with P&O Cruises. Step off the ship, and find yourself in paradise. Whether you want to sit under a swaying palm tree, walk along stretches of white sand, soak up the culture, or even swim with turtles - it’s all good. A P&O Island cruise is the perfect, stress free holiday.

From the popular ports in Noumea, Vanuatu and Fiji, P&O continues to pioneer new destinations for new and repeat cruisers alike. Included are unique and remote destinations such as the untouched Conflict Islands comprised of 21 small pristine, uninhabited islands in an atoll spanning 375 hectares in the Coral Sea, in south east Papua New Guinea. Previously only accessible by helicopter or a boat ride, P&O were the first to cruise to the destination in 2016. To make the most out of this island paradise guests can enjoy kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding as well as glass bottom boat or outrigger canoe tours.

Pentecost Island, Vanuatu another exclusive port has to be one of the most mysterious and evocative islands in the Pacific. Guests travelling from April to June may witness the death-defying rite of passage for men living in the south of the island of land diving. It is traditionally thought to point to a successful yam season, where towers of up to 30 metres high are built, and men dive with two vines wrapped around their ankles from the towering platform. A once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.
