P & O Announces Return of the Australian Cruise Season

Exciting news – P & O has announced a fantastic collection of cruises departing Australia and New Zealand on these wonderful Pacific ships.

There are many of our favourite itineraries to the South Pacific Islands that we all love to visit again and again with family and friends.

As well, P & O has added some new and exciting ports of call and some extensions to a couple of its popular sailings.

Papua New Guinea has been a sold out cruise since it was first introduced and this season’s three scheduled departures are expected to sell just as quickly.

To add further interest, the Solomon Islands has been added to each of the 10 night cruises departing in June 2022 and 2023 and May 2024.

History buffs who also enjoy relaxing on a South Pacific Island will appreciate the stop at Norfolk Island plus cruising past the site of Mutiny on the Bounty as part of their South Pacific cruise.

There is one departure in 2022, 2023 and 2024 out of Brisbane on this 14 night cruise.

The Sydney 15 night cruise departs in 2022 and 2023 only.

Aussie Cruisers love long cruises so there will be special interest in the 28 night Round Australia journey – which includes Ambon in the Indonesian ‘Spice Islands’  –  departing Brisbane on 28th June 2024.

For those wanting to experience just a few of the fantastic ports around the Australian coastline or Northern Australia plus Ambon, short cruise sectors are also available.

Additional air and accommodation can be arranged as either part of a cruise package or separately.

There will also be a number of Pride Cruises in 2022 for 3 nights out of Sydney and Melbourne, 3 nights in 2023 from Brisbane and 4 nights departing Sydney.

These cruises are always extremely popular and sell out fast.

Groups and friends love the chance to get away for a couple of days to enjoy meeting up to enjoy a relaxing getaway, dining, partying and taking in the entertainment.


And for the astronomy gazers, the King of Eclipses cruise from Exmouth in April 2023  could be just what you have been waiting for!


Of course the usual Comedy, Special Events and Short Break options are also back!.

So regardless of whether you are travelling as a family, a couple or a group of friends, this cruise season definitely has something for everyone.

But there has already been keen interest in these future cruises, and cabins and staterooms will sell fast.
