P&O Australia have a lot to look forward to: new ships, increased capacity, fabulous itineraries and destinations and a summer season on the horizon. What's more, the line has also recently reached a significant milestone: 4 million Australian and Kiwi cruisers have gotten onboard since they began sailing in our part of the world.
$4 million giveaway
Luckily for us, P&O have hit upon the perfect way to celebrate. Between the 17th of September and the 26th of November 2015, they will be giving away a grand total of $4 million to their faithful cruiselings. This will come in the form of up to $800 onboard credit per cabin on selected sailings.
Imagine what you could do with that much credit to be spent aboard one of P&O's fleet of fantastic ships, soon to number five with the addition of the Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden. That's countless cocktails and pre-dinner drinks, a whole lot of bingo games, or all kinds of fun in the casino. It could mean an unforgettable shore excursion with the family, or a fabulous evening out in one of P&O's specialty restaurants - Salt Grill, Angelo's, Dragon Lady or the Chef's Table.
However you choose to spend your share of P&O's $4 million giveaway, you'll be in for an amazing holiday with a cruise on one of their fun Aussie ships. These credits are combinable with Cruise Sale Week sales, Select Sailing onboard credits and past-guest "cruiseling" fares.
Play for a million-dollar prize
On top of these unprecedented onboard credits, P&O is offering their valued cruiselings a shot at a million dollars. Four lucky bookers will win a four-night cruise, during which they will play in a live game onstage and one of them will come home an instant millionaire.
Even if they don't strike it lucky with the big prize, the four contestants will get to enjoy the December game-show getaway, not a bad consolation prize at all
The Conspicuous Awakening of Owen Wilson
Cruising is all about good times - and who better to promote it than everyone's favourite fun-loving and funny actor, Mr. Owen Wilson? P&O Australia have partnered with the comedic genius to help you discover what's available onboard the Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden, P&O's enigmatic and elegant new pair who join the fleet in just a few months.
Follow along with Owen's journey as he "leaves earth" thanks to P&O, and become acquainted with the future of cruising in Australia. It's his best role yet!
I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
