This week's great deals from

Edition 547 - 31 March 2011
Hi Cruisers,

Brett and Philippa have just jetted off on our exclusive Galapagos charter so I’m in control this week! It’s been another busy week in the world of cruising (so no slacking off while the boss is away for us...), so let’s get straight into it!

Released at the end of this week is P&O’s August 2012 – May 2013 cruise program. Billed as Australia’s biggest ever cruise program with 126 departures, over 50 unique itineraries and 5 different home ports including Melbourne, we’ve been working hard on this and we will bring this to you very soon!

Cunard’s Europe & Exotic sailing programme is also due for release early next week and it promises to be a cracker! Consisting of 84 voyages, Cunard will visit 129 ports in 48 countries in 2012. On 5th June 2012, Cunard will create another historical moment as the three Queens meet in Southampton for the first time to Celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen. Sure to be an emotional moment!

Costa has also just announced their 2012 programme. Highlights include the deployment of 2 ships in Asia, Classica & Victoria and the launch of the new flagship, Costa Fascinosa (114,500 gross tonnage & 3780 total guests).
