Need a break but have little time to spare? Come away with us on a value-packed P&O Sea Break to the breathtakingly beautiful Bay of Islands
This ancient flooded river valley in New Zealand’s Northland region is a mecca for dolphin watching, kayaking and scuba diving. Not just a pretty face, The Treaty of Waitangi was signed in these parts, making it one of New Zealand’s most culturally significant spots too. Fancy a Shore Tour? From Waitangi, play Maori warrior as you glide onboard a 50-foot traditional Maori Waka (canoe) or visit picturesque Kerikeri, home to New Zealand’s two oldest buildings (charges apply to Shore Tours).


Auckland lies between two enormous harbours and is dominated by the peak of the volcanic Rangitoto Island. Enjoy island wine trails, forest walks and urban sophistication.

P&O Australia

P&O Cruises is Australia’s leading cruise line to destinations close to our shores. They offer an affordable and fun way to cruise, making P&O Cruises perfect for a family holiday, a romantic getaway, or a fun holiday with friends. With a fleet of four ships, including Pacific Dawn, Pacific Sun, Pacific Jewel and Pacific Pearl, you can cruise to Indonesia, Australia, the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. In Indonesia you can visit the temple of Borodurdur, or take a traditional cooking class in Lombok. Experience a different side of Australia and take a winery tour through South Australia’s McLaren Vale, or a ride a camel on Broome’s Cable Beach. Watch sharks and rays from a glass bottom boat off the coast of Bora Bora, or take a parasailing tour of Moorea. In New Zealand tour Auckland’s wine trail or visit ancient rainforests and black sand beaches.

The number of activities to do offshore is equally matched with activities onboard, and there’s something on offer to suit any guests’ tastes. You can spend your days taking in wine lectures, dance lessons or trying your luck at bingo. Relax beside the pool or indulge in a massage. At night, enjoy P&O’s themed bars, musical productions, comedy acts and live bands. Dress up for Cocktail Night and stay up late dancing and playing in the onboard casino. With all of this on offer, you will feel like you are on a resort at sea, rather than on a cruise!


P&O Cruises are a feast for your senses, with array of dining options and tantalising choices. With “Your Choice Dining” you can choose what to eat, and with whom, when and where. You can dine at the lavish buffet, or choose a four-course a la carte menu in the formal dining room. For an extra special experience, head for steak and seafood at celebrity Chef Luke Mangan’s restaurant, Salt Grill. Have a casual meal at the pizzeria, or relax by the pool with a quick snack. And if none of these take your fancy, room service is available all day.


P&O Cruises are perfect for young sailors, as they have three onboard Children’s Centres to keep kids entertained. For children aged three to six, there is the Turtle Cove offering arts and crafts, movies, scavenger hunts, talent shows and the Ocean Friends Club. The Shark Shack is available for seven to 10 year olds who want to take part in PlayStation competitions, talent shows and more! For 11 to 17 year olds, there is HQ and HQ+ offering sports competitions, pizza parties, hip-hop classes and more cool activities. All of the centres offer fun in a friendly and safe environment.

Plus, with “Your Choice Dining” onboard Pacific Pearl, you will be able to choose to dine where you want, and when you want. You can even choose to not leave your cabin and have your meals served to your room, with 24 hour room service available every day.
