Sailing savings next winter

Sailing savings next winter

Kiwis can sail into super savings of up to 30 per cent on P&O Cruises’ Pacific Star voyages to the South Pacific in winter 2007.

During her second winter season based out of Auckland, Pacific Star will sail on seven cruises to the islands plus voyages to and from her home port of Brisbane.

Cruises range in length from eight to 12 days with ports of call in Fiji, Tonga, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Loyalty Islands.

Fares start at $NZ1,357* for an eight night cruise and include on-board accommodation, main meals and entertainment.

Pacific Star is billed as New Zealand’s local ship offering a world of style and relaxation.

“Ships such as Pacific Star offer a huge range of entertainment and activity options,” says P&O Cruises New Zealand manager Shannon Currie. “It’s like taking your resort with you wherever you go.

“And by taking advantage of our Earlybird savings you can sit back and relax knowing your next winter’s tropical escape is already planned.”

After a major refit during 2005, the 1,350-passenger Pacific Star began its first South Pacific winter season this year carrying thousands of holidaying kiwis to warmer climes on voyages to the islands.

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

Facilities include six bars and lounges, a nightclub, open air spas, a jogging track, Lotus Spa, extensive open decks, show-lounge, a casino and kids’ clubs.

All main meals and on-board entertainment are included in the one low fare and once aboard ship you only need to unpack once, leaving you more time for fun and relaxation.
