three-night food and wine cruise, departing August 23, 2018 with fares from $383
NZD per person quad share.
Also on offer is a new
four-night comedy cruise sailing one-way from Auckland to Brisbane on August
26, 2018, with fares from $383 NZD per person quad share.
Releasing details of the
new extended six-month program, P&O President Sture Myrmell said the cruise
line had seen very strong demand for its cruises from Auckland this year,
including its first New Zealand spring season of cruising.
"We're responding to Kiwis'
growing love of cruising by expanding our offering from 15 cruises this year to
a record 22 cruises in 2018," Mr Myrmell said.
"The longer season also
means we can offer a wider range of cruises – from short weekend breaks to
longer two-week sojourns – so holidaymakers will truly be spoilt for choice."
Mr Myrmell said P&O's record
season was expected to inject around $25 million into the local economy in
guest and crew spending, provedoring and port charges, with the cruise line set
to carry more than 40,000 guests throughout the season.
Accommodating 1950 guests,
the 70,310-tonne Pacific Jewel features almost 200 private balcony rooms and
mini-suites, an indulgent spa and a host of great onboard activities including
the action-packed P&OEdge Adventure Park.
Its many dining options include fine dining at Salt grill by Luke Mangan
and contemporary casual eating in the Pantry, a stylish international food
market featuring eight fresh food outlets and a bar.
