P&O Cruises Australia is inviting country music fans to grab their boots and scoot onboard Pacific Explorer for New Zealand’s inaugural Country Cruise.
Aussies and Kiwis, grab your boots and your uke because, if country music is your jam, you’ll be wanting to experience this unique Country Music Festival at Sea, setting sail next year.
Departing Auckland on 11 November 2022, P&O Cruises says the special three-night cruise will feature a string of the latest and greatest country music stars, performing new hits and well-loved classics across the ship.
Guests will also be able to enjoy a range of other country music activities during their getaway, from line dancing and ukulele lessons to bush poetry and a country music sailaway party.
With country music on the rise, P&O expects the cruise to be a popular addition to its New Zealand Short Break offerings, according to the cruise line’s Head of Entertainment Brett Annable.
Mr Annable said the cruise theme reflected the growing interest in different styles of country music, from folk and bluegrass to rockabilly and country-rock.
“Country music is king for a lot of New Zealanders so we’re looking forward to creating a fantastic festival atmosphere onboard Pacific Explorer as we take this genre to sea,” Mr Annable said.
“From morning to night, the New Zealand Country Cruise will offer a fabulous line-up of country music performers, with guests able to sit back and relax as they enjoy the music or get their boots on to dance the cruise away.”
The debut New Zealand Country Cruise follows P&O’s successful inaugural Australian Country Cruise, which sailed from Brisbane in late 2019.
Pacific Explorer offers a wide range of bars, lounges and restaurants, from the popular casual dining restaurant Luke’s and the Neapolitan pizzeria 400 Gradi to the sultry Pan-Asian restaurant Dragon Lady.
The ship also features a host of entertainment options including two adrenaline-pumping waterslides, the exciting P&O Edge Adventure Park and a chilled barefoot lawn bowling green.
Bookings for the inaugural New Zealand Country Cruise are now available.
Fares start from NZ $449per person for a quad-share cabin on the three-night cruise departing Auckland on 11 November 2022.
