P&O Cruises Australia has revealed the 2021 season in South Australia will be the longest ever launched by the cruise line. In the line’s sixth consecutive year of calling Adelaide home, Pacific Aria will service four cruises from Adelaide over a 65- day season – twice the number of sailings offered in 2020. Highlights of the latest program includes two new 10-night Southern Discovery itineraries to Western Australia, calling in at popular cruise destination such as Albany, Busselton, Fremantle and Esperance. “In response to local demand… our biggest ever program reflects the interest in cruise holidays in the state,” said P&O Cruises Australia President Sture Myrmell.
“We know that more South Australians want to experience a cruise and this is why we have made sure the upcoming season offers a bigger and more varied selection of itineraries that cater for all tastes, interests and budgets from mini-breaks to a longer…holiday,” he added. Meanwhile in another milestone for the brand, P&O has also announced it is poised to carry more than two million passengers from Brisbane during its newlyunveiled 2021 season.
The cruise line’s Brisbane program features 30 itineraries including longer cruises to select South Pacific islands and Papua New Guinea, as well as shorter themed cruise options. “The deployment of Pacific Explorer and the introduction of the city’s new international cruise terminal is set to take Brisbane minto the big league of cruising,” Myrmell said. P&O’s 2021 Queensland season will contribute an estimated $40 million into the state’s economy.
