P&O Cruises

The P&O Cruises Australia Experience

Cruise away with P&O and discover a holiday that’s Like No Place On Earth. Enjoy days and nights filled with entertainment, relaxation, and world-class cuisine. There’s so much to do but it’s your choice – to do it all or do nothing at all.

P&O Cruises Australia are best for

Guests looking for a fun atmosphere and a great value holiday or short break to relax and recharge. P&O Cruises offer contemporary cruising with a distinctly Australian style. Choose from three stylish ships cruising from six different homeports.

Atmosphere & Experience onboard

Unpack once and let the holiday begin! Choose from 60 onboard activities every day; soak by the pool, head to the gym, spa or a dance class. Perhaps a spot of retail therapy, a good book or just watching the ever-changing pristine ocean views, there is so much to do.

It’s the little moments of ‘me time’ that make all the difference. At night, you can head to a production show, created and produced especially for P&O Cruises and with Aussies in mind, watch some live music, dance the night away or just kick back in your favourite bar.


Guests include families/larger groups, couples through to retirees.
