Cruising is the ultimate way to travel. You only unpack once, there are no airport queues (thank God), and you get to venture to parts of the world that are just not possible on other modes of transport.

Such as the glorious South Pacific – cue visions of soft white sand, turquoise lagoons, smiling locals…

And if there’s anyone you should set sail with in these waters of the world, it’s definitely with P&O, the pioneers of the South Pacific.

Cruising for over 85 years, P&O’s ships are perfectly sized to reach even the most remote and untouched corners of the South Pacific. Basically, they go where other cruise lines can’t.

But that’s only one of the many reasons why P&O are the South Pacific legends.

Here are four more to chew on…




With the largest South Pacific itinerary choice in the market, P&O literally go EVERYWHERE in the South Pacific, and all year-round too (from Sydney and Brisbane).

Sure, they cruise to New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Polynesia and the Solomon Islands. But they also cruise to Papua New Guinea, including the Conflict Islands.

Heralded as possibly the most peaceful place on Earth, the Conflict Islands in Papua New Guinea is a P&O exclusive port, and you’ll definitely feel like a VIP whilst kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or just relaxing on one of the 21 privately owned islands.

Home to one of the world’s most biodiverse reef systems, guests snorkelling or taking a glass bottom boat tour will find themselves in a colourful world that they’ll never want to leave!




We’ve already touched on the point that P&O is the only cruise line to visit the Conflict Islands in PNG, but P&O is unique in other ways too.

For example, P&O Shore Tours offer the best sights, wonders, adventures, shopping and entertainment at each destination, which are specially curated and guaranteed to plunge your clients into the heart and soul of the destination, leaving you with memories (and selfies to prove it!) that will stay with you forever.

Some of P&O’s South Pacific shore tour favourites include swimming with the turtles in Turtle Bay on the Isles of Pines; canoeing the Riri River in Santo, Vanuatu onboard a traditional wooden dug-out canoe; and a day adventure in Amedee Island Marine Reserve in Noumea where guests can enjoy white sandy beaches, coral and sealife and a traditional banquet island style lunch.




From its destinations to the food offered onboard and activities, P&O’s experiences are designed to be quintessentially Australian, and modern. P&O celebrates Australia in every way, such as excellent, friendly service onboard, quality food, and tasteful interior design. Onboard all currency is also in Australian Dollars – so no surprises with currency exchange!

Pacific Explorer, which is the newest ship in the P&O fleet, cruises year round from Sydney and was designed to reflect modern Australia, featuring barefoot bowls at sea, Waterslides and Waterpark and The Bonded Store in collaboration with Archie Rose Distilling Co.

Combine all this with fantastic accommodation and entertainment, and it’s easy to see why P&O are the undisputed kings in the South Pacific.




Available from 13 December until 13 February 2018, it’s possible to book a cruise to the South Pacific, or any other P&O cruise, for only $1 Deposit per person and receive a free Interior Room to Oceanview Room Upgrade (all ships, except Pacific Explorer) or free Oceanview to Balcony room upgrade for Pacific Explorer departures.
