Hot 3-Day Sale to Celebrate Pacific Pearl's First Birthday

Pacific Pearl, P&O Cruises' latest addition to its fleet, celebrates her first birthday in December and P&O is offering some great summer cruising deals in a 3-day sale starting today.

The sale offers great prices as well as on board credit of up to AUD$150 per cabin, free upgrades to an outside cabin on selected sailings and reduced fares starting from $87 per day quad share.

The sale features 8 cruises departing from Auckland, including Christmas and New Year departures and ranging in length from three-night Short Breaks to a 14-night Tasmanian Treasures itinerary.

Pacific Pearl's Christmas and birthday cruise departs Auckland on December 19 visiting Tonga's unspoilt islands of Nuku'alofa and Vava'u before heading to Fiji's tranquil Dravuni Island for Christmas Day, and then onto the country's capital, Suva, for Boxing Day.

Highlights of the Christmas cruise – which is a 10-night Island Mysteries cruise - can include a variety of shore excursions, such as a half-day tour to one of the best snorkelling and swimming locations in Tonga, the secluded Fua’amotu Beach, and a thrilling forest flying fox adventure through the trees in Suva.

Fares for this cruise start at $1,999* per person, twin share, inside cabin, with a free upgrade to an outside cabin and on board credit of AUD$100 per cabin.

Pacific Pearl is the only superliner to be homeported in New Zealand and arrived in Auckland last year after a multi-million dollar refit in Singapore. This included the addition of a massive seven-metre wide, four metre-high Big Screen on the pool deck, a new Salt Grill by Luke Mangan restaurant and a child-free Oasis retreat at the rear of the ship.
