Latest news

P&O Cruises Australia is expanding!  Carnival Corporation has announced that it will be redeploying the Golden Princess from Princess Cruises to P&O Cruises Australia in 2020.  Golden Princess will be replacing Pacific Eden who has been purchased by an alternative company and will be cruising out of the fleet in March 2019.

Cruises from Australia and New Zealand

P&O Cruises Australia are one of the few cruise lines that operate year round cruises in Australia.  Operating five ships from six Australian ports (and two international ones) there’s a cruise to suit every Australian’s holiday needs.

New to cruising, or short on time? P&O Cruises Australia has a huge range of short cruises perfect for an introductory cruise, a getaway reunion, weekend birthday celebration or just a quick break. View P&O cruises 1-3 nights or 4-6 nights.

The primary departure ports for P&O Cruises are Brisbane and Sydney.  P&O Cruises departing from Sydney sail aboard Pacific Eden and Pacific Explorer, whilst Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria offer Queenslanders an extensive range of year round P&O Cruises departing from Brisbane.  From Brisbane, the most popular itinerary for P&O cruisers is the seven night round trip voyage to the Pacific islands.  The islands are also popular for people cruising from Sydney, but the itineraries tend to be longer – between 8 and 12 nights.  It’s safe to say that for P&O Cruises Australia, South Pacific itineraries are their most popular cruise destination.  Cruise Guru’s handy tip for finding the right South Pacific cruise: generally cruises of 7 to 9 nights from the eastern states visit New Caledonia, cruises of 10 to 11 nights may include Vanuatu, and you will need 12 nights or more to reach the islands of Fiji or Tonga.

P&O Cruises have also started to operate more departures from Melbourne with the Pacific Jewel hubbing out of the city during the summer season.  You can cruise for up to 12 nights from Melbourne with itineraries visiting Tasmania and the Southern Coast of Australia as well as New Zealand and the South Pacific.   From April, Pacific Jewel transits across the Tasman, offering quick getaways and warming island escapes over the winter months with departures from Auckland.

P&O Cruises Australia also offers some additional departures from Cairns, and most-recently, an increased number of departures from Adelaide.

International Cruises

Pacific Aria is also offering two rare 14 night cruises from Brisbane to Singapore and return to Brisbane. The outbound cruise departs on 20 July 2018 via Port Douglas, Darwin, East Timor, Komodo Island and Lombok, and the return cruise is via Bali, Komodo Island, East Timor, Cairns and Airlie Beach, departing on 15 August 2018. These cruises represent outstanding value and offer a rare opportunity to experience Asia with P&O Cruises Australia. Be sure to secure your cabin early.
