All luggage will be security screened by an x-ray machine at embarkation.

We recommend no more than two bags per person. Each bag can be no bigger than 140cm x 60cm x 40cm and weigh no more than 32kg. It is important to remember airlines may have different luggage restrictions. Please note, all luggage must be stowed in your room.

Luggage labels have been included in with your eTickets. Please print as many as you need, complete the necessary information and attach these to your baggage prior to arriving at the wharf.

You can find out your room number on ‘Cruise Personaliser’ and
it should be displayed on your eTicket. Alternatively, P&O Cruises staff will be able to advise you of your room number when you check-in on the day of sailing.

If you are flying to or from the ship on P&O Cruises’ nominated flights on the day of sailing, it is vital every item of luggage has a P&O Cruises identification label on it to assist us in transporting your entire
luggage to and from the ship. Airline luggage restrictions apply to guests flying before or after their cruise.

Aviation Security Measures for Carry-on Baggage at International Airports 

For safety reasons, there are rules for taking liquids, aerosols and gels on flights into and out of Australia. These rules also apply when transiting on international flights within Australia. Please check
with the airline at the time of booking for up to date restrictions.

These rules are necessary to protect you from the threat of liquid explosives. Each container of liquids, aerosols or gels in your carry-on baggage must be 100 millilitres/grams or less. All the containers must be sealed in a transparent, one-litre plastic bag. You are only allowed one plastic bag per person. For more information on clear resealable bags please see the frequently asked questions section of the website listed below.

You may still carry onboard prescription medicines. Baby products and non-prescription medicines necessary for the flight are also allowed. Proof of need may be required.

When you get to the screening point, you will have to surrender any liquids, aerosols or gels greater than 100ml/g that you still have with you, including duty free. Random frisk searches are part of the screening process. For further information, please visit:
