.And another announcement! P&O Cruises UK has launched its 2013 world cruise program, – its biggest ever – revealing that three of its four world cruise vessels will be calling at Australian ports in February and March 2013.

Among them, the 3,574-passenger Azura, which was launched last year by Australian ballerina Darcey Bussell, will be the star of the program as she makes her first world cruise.

“Her maiden call into Sydney will be celebrated in true P&O Cruises’ style when we hope to reunite Darcey with her ship for the first time since performing her Godmother duties in April 2010,” said Carol Marlow, P&O Cruises UK’s managing director.

Azura is set to cruise to Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns.

Other world cruise segment options include 13 nights on Azura from Singapore to Melbourne; 22 nights on Aurora from San Francisco to Sydney; 24 nights on Arcadia from Sydney to San Fransisco; and 20-nights on Adonia from Rio de Janiero to Valparaiso.

Be honest! Would you prefer a world voyage on a P&O Cruises UK or a Cunard ship?
