P&O Cruises Australia announced on the 15 of March they have had an update to their operations with P&O commencing cruising on 31 May, 2022 with the launch of a new 2022 program of sailings from Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne. It follows the Federal Government’s decision to lift the cruise ban from April 17.
P&O have reset their plans to stagger the return of their fleet in a way that enables them to bring their ships and crew back to Australia as smoothly as possible. The new 2022 program includes:
• Pacific Explorer will sail from Sydney on May 31 on a four-night roundtrip cruise to Brisbane, where the ship is scheduled to make the first call at the city’s new cruise terminal on June 2.
• Pacific Encounter will depart from Brisbane on 20 August 2022
• Pacific Adventure will begin her maiden season of cruises from Sydney on October 22, when Pacific Explorer will sail to Adelaide for a new mini-season of four cruises.
