The Christmas gift that moves you

The Christmas gift that moves you

With only 112 shopping days until Christmas, it's never been a better time to start thinking about your gift list - as well as your festive fun.

And what an ideal gift a Christmas cruise would be; for yourself, a loved one or even a close friend.

It's a good time to start thinking about a Christmas cruise because P&O Cruises is offering some exciting savings on its 10-night Pacific Sky tropical "Christmas Cruisin" cruise. Fares start from NZD$2893 per person on this cruise which departs Sydney on December 17.

"Just think; no cooking or washing up and no worrying about where the kids are" says P&O Cruises Australia and New Zealand director of sales, Ross Regan.

Simply hop aboard, unpack only once and let Pacific Sky's friendly crew make your festive vacation one to remember.

Mr Regan said the cruise presented a great opportunity for Kiwis to meet their friends in Sydney and spend Christmas together cruising the South Pacific."

P&O Cruises offers special-price airfares to connect passengers with the cruise in Sydney.

The 1550 passenger Pacific Sky will be decorated from bow to aft as she visits New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, and Vanuatu on the cruise. Santa has definitely promised to be on board with presents for the kids.

Fares include all main meals as well as Christmas specials including full Christmas lunch and dinner and carols by candlelight. Pacific Sky offers free daily entertainment for all including ample diversions for the children with activity programmes catering for kids from toddlers to teenagers.

Bookings and cruise brochures are available from travel agents or by calling the P&O Cruises freephone on 0800 441 766 or by visiting the company's website at .
