P&O Cruises have been sailing in Australian waters for over 75 years. Their first cruise from Sydney took place at Christmas 1932 when 'Strathaird' sailed for Norfolk Island with a full complement of passengers. P&O Cruises invented cruising in the mid-1800s and it has been synonymous with the industry ever since, sailing its famous white ships across all the oceans of the world.
Today P&O Cruises is Australia and New Zealand's leading cruise line to destinations in the South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Regular cruises depart from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Fremantle and Auckland. The P&O Cruises fleet currently consists of the 47,000 ton PACIFIC SUN carrying 1,900 passengers, the 70,000 ton superliners PACIFIC DAWN with 2,020 passengers and PACIFIC JEWEL carrying 1,950 passengers, and the 63,000 ton PACIFIC PEARL carrying 1,800 passengers.
The P&O Experience
A P&O cruise is an enjoyable, laid back and good value for money cruise experience. Their ships provide plenty of facilities for young and old alike with an emphasis on lots of fun.
P&O ships are suitable for people of all ages who are young at heart and enjoy a very casual style cruise with lots of fun and entertainment. Whatever your choice, you will find people of all ages and backgrounds on a cruise with P&O.
P&O's dedicated team of Children's Activity staff keep your children entertained so they have as good a holiday as you do. A comprehensive supervised childrens program is available from 10am to 10pm and includes pool games, arts & crafts, movies, talent shows, educational talks and late night child minding.
5-year olds and under can have a fun-filled time in 'Turtle Cove'. The 'Shark Shack' provides activities for the 6 to 12 year olds and HQ is a great area for teenagers only. A full list of activities is printed each day in the children's own activity guides.
When Pacific Jewel joined the P&O fleet in December 2009 she offered two incredible firsts for Australian cruisers: an amazing high-wire circus and trapeze arena on the top deck and the largest spa afloat in the southern hemisphere. The Aqua Heath, Spa & Fitness Centre™ offers ocean-view treatment rooms for the ultimate in pampering.
Pacific Pearl arrived into Sydney and Auckland in late 2010 as the newest ship to join the P&O cruises fleet.
