See the world the easy way with P&O Cruises

P&O Cruises is offering travellers on its famous world voyages the chance to see more destinations in one holiday than most people see in a lifetime.

Sectors from 11 to 80 nights are now on sale on the luxury British superliners Oriana, Aurora and Artemis between December 2006 and April 2007. Among the 25 segments is a 14-night cruise from Auckland to Singapore from NZ$4,111 per person.

“P&O Cruises invented cruising more than 160 years ago and today we are still treating passengers on our world cruises to more destinations and cultures in one holiday than most people experience in their entire life,” P&O Cruises New Zealand manager Shannon Currie says.

“There’s simply no better, relaxing or more affordable way to discover the world than on one of P&O Cruises’ beautiful and modern UK liners,” says Mr Currie.

“For Kiwis who can’t join entire world voyages, these new shorter segments will still enable them to experience the journey of a lifetime.”

In 2007, Oriana will offer a full 94-night circumnavigation of the globe, departing the UK on January 7. Aurora will sail two days later on a longer 103-night voyage from England to New Zealand and back via the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Meanwhile, Artemis will depart the UK on December 2, 2006, for an exotic 80-night ‘African and Asian Odyssey’.

The corn-funnelled trio offer New Zealanders a plush home-away-from-home and a classic British cruise experience, with passengers enjoying white glove service, elegant restaurants, spacious open decks, world-class entertainment and traditional English touches such as sumptuous afternoon teas, shuffleboard, cricket games and even an English pub at sea.

The short world cruise legs include:

- A 14-night cruise on Aurora from Auckland to Singapore via Sydney, Brisbane and Darwin from NZ$4,111 per person*

- An 18-night cruise on Aurora from Auckland to Hong Kong via Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin, Singapore and Nha Trang (Vietnam) from NZ$5,533 per person*

- A 16-night sector on Oriana from San Francisco to Auckland via Honolulu, Apia, Pago Pago and Suva from NZ$4,583 per person*

- A 20-night leg on Oriana from Auckland to Hong Kong via Bay of Islands, Sydney, Brisbane, Whitsunday Islands, Manila and Shanghai from NZ$6,156 per person*

- A 19-night cruise on Artemis from Cape Town to Singapore from NZ$3,857 per person*

* Fares include a 45 per cent early booking discount as well as all main meals and entertainment onboard and are based on complete twin cabin, subject to availability. Airfare deals are also available. Onboard spending credits of up to £125 per person are available for legs of 35-60 nights.
