To attempt to pack it all into one sentence, picture the turquoise waters and lush tropics of the South Pacific, a host of performances from some of Australia’s biggest names including exclusive performances from Kate Ceberano, Shane Jacobson and Daryl Braithwaite and meals whipped up by acclaimed chefs like Johnny di Francesco and Luke Mangan.

Noumea.

Where will you go?

You’ll start off in Sydney, enjoying the triumphant harbour backdrop as your adventure starts, before arriving in New Caledonia, where azure waters, warm sands and an ocean teeming with marine life await. On Mystery Island in New Caledonia you can take a glass-bottom boat tour, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, or put on your snorkel mask and get up close and personal with the colourful corals and sea life of the area.

Next you’ll visit the French provincial town of Noumea, with all the perfect beaches you’d expect, but also a multi-cultural charm and unique architecture.

Your next destination might just turn out to be your highlight, with the island Mare offering not just a slice, but a complete buffet of paradise, with romantically swooping sea cliffs, beaches that look photo-shopped and a French-infused local culture all combining into a spectacular stay.

The sights keep coming at Isle of Pines, which will strongly challenge Mare for its beauty, with the island dotted with proud-standing Araucaria pine trees. You can admire the Oro natural pool and Queen Hortense’s Cave and get taken out on a sailing boat to explore the inviting waters.

After this you’ll be back at sea, Pacific Adventure ready to be hospitable for however you’d like to reflect on the last few days, whether it’s lounging in the spa, relaxing on the sundeck, comforting eating or whatever else.

Isle of Pines

Entertain me

While the destinations alone are enough to make this cruise a spectacular one, that’ll just be the beginning. Iconic Aussie singer Daryle Braithwaite performing an exclusive concert, playing through his catalogue of hits, crowned by Aussie classic ‘Horses’. Another Aussie icon Kate Ceberano will also be bringing the star power, furthering your fix of live music and entertainment.

You’ll also get the chance to attend ‘An Audience With …’ featuring TV Presenter and acclaimed actor Shane Jacobson, as he takes you through his path to global success and lets you in on the stories that happened along the way.

There’s also something for the sports fans, with a sports panel featuring rugby league legend Billy Moore, AFL hero Simon Black and Olympic gold medallist Steve Bradbury.

However, when the exclusive events aren’t taking centre stage there’s still plenty to do. Expect a series of original stage performances, live music and DJ’s until late, comedy shows, try your luck in the casino, attend a deck party and more.

Get eating

Expect all the usual P&O delights, with celebrity chef Luke Mangan leading the way Luke’s Bar & Grill, after Mr Mangan was a long-term advocate for the return of cruise he’ll be just as delighted as you are to be back.

Johnny di Francesco’s 400 Gradi will serve up some of the best Italian food you can expect at sea or anywhere else, with Agenlo’s providing another option for premium Italian.

There’s also P&O favourite Dragon Lady for a serving of Asian cuisine, Waterfront for contemporary Australian dining and more eateries sprinkled around the ship.

What’s on board

Get right into taking care of yourself, with a fully fitted gym on-board as well as The Oasis, a spa and wellness centre designed for self-care at sea. You can hang out poolside and soak up the Springtime sun, three are three bars on board, the 135-metre twin racer waterslides, a host of family-friendly activities and so much more across the 3100-capacity vessel.
