The Easter bunny has come early this year.

While we might not be able to spend the long weekend cruising the high seas, this is a little treat P&O Australia has given us.

After an evening of drinks and dinner, entertainment and dancing, there is always a pleasant surprise waiting for us on our beds.

The beloved towel animal, a charming maritime tradition, is carefully created by our cabin stewards.

To beat the cruise withdrawals, P&O has revealed a sweet video on how you can create the towel animal at home – as if you’re stepping back inside your stateroom.

The step-by-step guide shows you how to make the head of the bunny, and then the body.

What other animals have the cruisers made?
