P&O Cruises Australia Latest news
P&O Cruises Australia is undergoing a fleet transformation! First and foremost, we are very excited for Pacific Adventure to start sailing our shores in October 2020, but in even more exciting news, she will be expecting a sister to join her in 2021! Named Pacific Encounter, she will be of similar size to Adventure, accommodating 3,000 guests. Unfortunately this means that we will be waving goodbye to some of our old favourites – both Pacific Aria and Pacific Dawn will be farewelled in 2021.

The primary departure ports for P&O cruises are Brisbane and Sydney; P&O Cruises departing from Sydney sail aboard Pacific Aria, Pacific Explorer and new for 2020, Pacific Adventure, whilst Pacific Dawn and from 2020, Pacific Explorer, 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 7 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 Australia Cruises, 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.
If you’re wanting to explore more of the stunning destinations that are right on your doorsteps, P&O Cruises Australia also offers a number of cruises up and down the eastern coastline of Australia departing from both Sydney and Brisbane.
P&O Cruises Australia has also started to operate more departures from Melbourne with a number of itineraries being offered in 2020. 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.
P&O Cruises are also offering a small number of cruises to and from Asia as part of their schedule. With cruises into and out of Singapore from various Australian ports with visits to Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. 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.
