Ships based in Australia: Pacific Aria | Pacific Dawn | Pacific Explorer | Pacific Eden | Pacific Jewel | Pacific Pearl
Ships visiting S-E Asia: Pacific Jewel

P&O Cruises operates five ships from six Australian ports, Auckland, and Singapore. New 2016 itineraries include a home port in Cairns, and inaugural visits to Honiara, Jakarta, Ko Chang (Thailand), Hamilton Island, Gladstone, Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, and Esperance in Western Australia. Pacific Eden sails from Fremantle, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Cairns and Singapore; Pacific Aria from Sydney and Brisbane; Pacific Jewel from Sydney and Melbourne; Pacific Dawn from Brisbane; and Pacific Pearl sails out of Sydney and Auckland. P&O Cruises offers extensive family programs and child-care facilities, while adults have their private areas. Readers Digest voted P&O Cruises as one of Australia’s most trusted brands for the second year in succession. A sixth ship, Dawn Princess, will be re-branded as Pacific Explorer and join P&O in May 2017

P&O itineraries begin with 2 to 4-night getaways, including themed cruises centred on food and wine, comedy, Australia Day, Christmas, and sporting events. Convenient one-week-away-from-home holidays depart on a weekend. Longer 10 to 18-night explorer and adventure cruises are supported by an extensive Shore Tour program. Embark from your choice of eight cities. AusAsia ports of call number 28 in Australia, 27 in Pacific and PNG waters, 10 in New Zealand, and 25 SE Asian ports in seven countries. P&O Cruises attracts active and often boisterous Aussie crowds. Sixty onboard activities run day and night: something’s happening all the time. Food choices include formal dining restaurants, Lido buffets, and specialty dining for a modest cover charge. Dining reservations are optional. The Line has a high percentage of repeat travellers. Payment of gratuities is included in the fare.
