The upcoming addition of Pacific Eden and Pacific Aria to the fleet of P&O Cruises in Australia will see a wider range of itinerary options and themes in 2016-2017 season.

With its local fleet boosted to 5 vessels, P&O has planned bumper seasons from Queensland and Victoria, long weekend breaks to Port Lincoln and Melbourne from Adelaide, more South Pacific and Papua New Guinea cruises, as well as increased Sydney options.

The new program is on sale from April 22, and includes a tribal Christmas in Papua New Guinea, music-themed short breaks, a voyage from Auckland to Napier for the famous Art Deco Weekend, and an inaugural cruise from Melbourne to Eden on the south coast of New South Wales.

Brisbane cruisers will benefit from having two P&O ships year-round, when the new Eden joins the Pacific Dawn.

The first 200 cruisers who book a new program sailing, departing from November 14, 2016, will receive extras including priority check-in and tenders, onboard credit and welcome gift packs.
