Over this weekend just past we were the winner of the “Agency Promotion Of The Year” at the Annual CLIA Awards (Cruise Lines International Association), which for an agency like ours based in rural Australia is a huge win! Our thanks and our appreciation go out to our cruise Partner who made this possible – one of the Exhibitors at our upcoming Cruise Expo on the 17th of March – P&O Cruises!
For many of those here in Australia, P&O is a well recognised name, and it should be! P&O is a cruise line founded in Britain, but which pioneered cruising from Australia with its first cruise (a Brisbane to Norfolk Island Return Trip for 1100 people) in 1932 selling out in a single day! From these early pleasure cruises to the transport of migrants following World War II to the modern cruise age, P&O have been a presence in Australia for over 70 years!
For Australian travellers, P&O has been the first cruise line of choice for many of those years, and while in the last few decades a lot of competition has arisen for cruising ex-Australian ports there are still a hot of reasons why P&O is still amongst the most popular.
Year Round! Of all the cruise lines operating out of Australian Water P&O offer the most cruises departing year round from their major cruise ports – so when a lot of other ships depart for different waters, this cruise line is still here serving the Australian Community
Varied Departures! P&O Cruises offer a fantastic array of cruises from Australia, short cruises from Capitals to varying areas, three day cruises to no-where, themed cruises, cruises along the Australian Coast, cruises up to Indonesia and South East Asia, cruises to New Zealand, cruises to the Pacific Island and most recently cruises to Papua New Guinea. The variety of destinations and durations leave a huge range of offers for all sorts of travellers from those looking for a weekend break to those looking for a longer voyage.
Good Value! Say what you will about any cruise line, P&O Cruises offers a Good Value cruise product that is within reach of most Australians, for relatively low prices you can get away from 3 to 35 odd days with all accommodation, meals and entertainment included. P&O Cruises also offer a range of well priced land tours on all their cruises, and for those that enjoy a drink or two have recently introduced “Drinks Packages”on their voyages of 7 days or longer.
Forward Looking! Most importantly, no matter the ships age or status, P&O is always refitting and updating their ships to keep up to date with the needs and desires of its travellers – much of which is accomplished through passenger feedback, such as the conversion from the standard Buffet to the new “Pantry”
P&O Cruises is a fantastic Cruise Line for the first time cruiser to get a taste of Cruising, or for a family looking for an affordable getaway, for honeymooners looking for a holiday where they won’t need to worry about looking after anything. So if a good break ex-your favoured Australian Port and P&O sounds good, come and see the Expert at at My Cruise Expo, on the 17th March 2017 at Worrigee Ex-Serviceman’s Sports Club from 5pm till 8pm!
As you can see, even we enjoy what P&O Cruises has to offer!
