P&O Cruises Australia

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.

I cruised for the first time this year and have to say I loved it! Unpacking only once was great and me and my husband had a fantastic time visiting the Pacific Islands. Would definitely cruise again!
