About P&O Cruises
P&O Cruises is part of the Carnival Cruise Line Corporation. They first set sail in 1932 and have since secured themselves as one of Australia’s favourite cruise lines (and the nation’s largest!). This award-winning cruise line boasts 7 home ports in Australia and New Zealand and their fleet travel all across the Pacific Ocean. Cruises tend to be shorter and more affordable, but always value-packed! P&O Cruises attract a younger audience. Over 80% of passengers are under 60 years old, making this cruise line ideal for like-minded couples, families and groups of friends.
On a P&O Cruises cruise, guests can sail around Australasia, Asia and the South Pacific. Key destinations include the Whitsundays, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Singapore, East Timor, Norfolk Island, Kangaroo Island, New Zealand and more!
