P&O adds Melbourne as homeport

P&O Cruises releases 2012/13 program

P&O Cruises will operate seven summer cruises homeported out of Melbourne from late next year, as part of its 2012-13 program which has just been released.

The launch is P&O's biggest ever, comprising a "record-breaking" 126 voyages in total, including a large expansion of short breaks.

New ports of call include Port Lincoln and Kangaroo Island in South Australia, while as well as Melbourne the homeports include Sydney, Brisbane, Fremantle and Auckland.

WA Pacific Sun departures include a series of 12 night cruises to Indonesia, while Pacific Pearl will return to Auckland for five cruises in April and May 2013.

There are two special August 2012 "heritage voyages" planned to mark 80 years since P&O's first Australian cruise, while other highlights include a new four night Christmas shopping cruise from Sydney to Melbourne.
