The Pacific Ocean has more than eleven million square miles of ocean dotted with islands, some no larger than a suburban back yard.
The names themselves conjure up images of times past, great voyages of discovery and pitched battles, now etched in history - Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Samoa - they all have a charm and allure which has attracted explorers, adventurers and fortune seekers since the dawn of time.
Thirteen island nations, with a total population of just over 6 million people offer so much to see and do. Going on a cruise to the rich and diverse South Pacific will let you experience the enchanting islands and beautiful people that for hundreds of years stirred the mind and excited the imagination.

P&O Cruises Australia
P&O Cruises Australia is the region''s largest and longest-serving cruise operator, and leads the way in cruising as Australasia''s only ''home brand'' and its favourite cruise line.
We have been sailing the region for more than 80 years, and have pioneered new destinations around Australia, the Pacific and Asia including Papua New Guinea, as reported in the New York'' 52 top destinations for 2015.
P&O Cruises is the nation''s largest cruise line with five ships cruising from eight home ports in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. In November 2015 Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden were added to the three-ship fleet and in 2017 P&O Cruises will welcome its latest ship - the Pacific Explorer. A new ship, the first purpose built ship for the Australian and New Zealand market, will be launched in 2019 and will be the biggest cruise ship ever to be based fulltime in Australia.
The continued evolution of P&O Cruises heralds a new era, as reflected in its new brand repositioning - P&O Cruises, Like no Place on Earth.
