Be dancing in the moonlight this New Year

There’s no better place to see in 2006 than aboard a cruise ship, sailing the South Pacific seas.

On P&O Cruises’ Pacific Sky the choice is yours. Pop bubbly under the stars and kick up your heels on the dance floor, or sit down to a romantic dinner at the Outback Grill followed by a stargazing stroll along the promenade deck.

And P&O Cruises is offering fares worth celebrating when Pacific Sky sets sail for Fiji and Vanuatu on her 12-night New Year’s cruise departing Auckland on December 27. Fares start from just $2,109* per person including all main meals and entertainment.

The 12-night cruise sails to Suva in Fiji before Pacific Sky anchors at beautiful Dravuni Island for the New Year’s Eve festivities.

The 47,000-tonne ship then cruises to idyllic Yasawa-I-Rara. This tropical paradise is followed by three ports of call in Vanuatu prior to Pacific Sky’s return to Auckland on January 8, 2006.

P&O Cruises New Zealand manager Shannon Currie says the dedicated New Year’s cruise is a terrific holiday for all age groups.

“The great thing about Pacific Sky is you choose how to celebrate the New Year. You can party the night away in the tropics with a group of friends – new and old – or enjoy a more relaxed evening. You might prefer to take in a show and watch the clock strike twelve as you soak in the ocean atmosphere on one of the ship’s many outdoor decks.

“And with our devoted kid’s club facilities, children can have their own celebration under the watchful eyes of our dedicated kids’ crew members”.

Fares on-board Pacific Sky include breakfast, full buffet lunch, five course dinners and theme nights as well as access to the ships’ eight bars and lounges. There’s a variety of live entertainment every night aboard ship and each cabin has its own steward.

“The thing about Pacific Sky is there’s a choice of more than 40 things to do aboard ship so there’s something for everyone to enjoy,” says Mr Currie.

“And the beauty of a cruise ship is there are no hassles like traffic and potential rainstorms to spoil your summer vacation.”

Fares on Pacific Sky’s New Year voyage start at $2,109* per person in a four-berth cabin or $3,155* per person in a twin-berth cabin.

Booking details are available through travel agents, call P&O Cruises on 0800 95 12 00 or visit

* Fares are based on two adults and two children aged under 13, travelling together in a complete 4-berth cabin based on Q-grade, including savings of 45 per cent. Fares subject to availability, conditions apply.
