P&O Cruises celebrates biggest ever Kiwi season with travel agent prizes

P&O Cruises have launched a massive competition for New Zealand travel agents with a prize pool of 10 cruises, valued at over $95,000.

Designed to celebrate the latest P&O Cruises 2007-2008 brochure, which arrived in agencies this week, the competition gives agents nation-wide the chance to cruise on Pacific Star by simply answering 10 questions about the brochure.

P&O Cruises New Zealand manager Mr Shannon Currie said "Our latest agent competition is sure to generate lots of excitement in travel agencies. It is a fantastic new brochure and our biggest New Zealand programme ever. The competition gives travel agents the chance to win a great cruise and celebrate also".

"Like all P&O Cruises passengers, once onboard the winning travel agents will be well looked after. With all main meals, onboard entertainment and activities, accommodation and a host of exotic destinations included in the 10 night cruise, this truly is a great prize" said Mr Currie.

Each cruise prize onboard Pacific Star is valued at up to $9,679 and is valid for the travel agent plus one guest, including return economy flights to meet Pacific Star in Auckland. The cruise 'Island Dreams' departs Auckland in June 2007 for 10 nights and visits an amazing combination of South Pacific ports in Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Loyalty Islands.

The new 2007-2008 brochure features both a winter and summer cruise season for New Zealand, with Pacific Star making eight departures from Auckland between May and August in 2007, then returning in the summer for nine round trip cruises including a New Years cruise and Christmas cruise. Jam packed with exciting itineraries from New Zealand, the brochure highlights seven school holiday cruises, a collection of convenient eight night cruises plus a selection of longer escapes to Fiji and Tonga.

The 35,000 ton Pacific Star features four dining venues, two swimming pools, spacious decks and a choice of queen or twin bed configurations in most cabins - perfect for couples, friends or families.

Facilities include six bars and lounges, a nightclub, Lotus Spa and gym, showlounge, casino and kids clubs - including a dedicated teens' centre.
