P&O Pacific Partnership
The P&O Pacific Partnership is our way of giving back to the Pacific Island communities who already give so much to us. For the 80 years we’ve been visiting these destinations, we’ve been doing all that we can to help the locals prosper – from building amenities, creating jobs, environmental protection and donating goods, but this year we make our contribution a more formal one...and we’re getting you all involved too.
This year, we have paired with the Save the Children and are working towards providing our Pacific Island friends with all the basic care which we take for granted.
You will now notice a $1 donation on your onboard account when you cruise with us. (Adults 18+ accounts only and you do have the option of having it removed onboard.) There is also the opportunity to donate further onboard or you can even grab a Born to Knit Kit and knit a square for a blanket to be donated to the new mothers on the islands.
Watch the video below and see what your help is going towards.
We’d also like to give you a big thank you for your donations.
Launched in 1963 as a 24-hour telephone counselling service and now operating from 60 locations Australia-wide, Lifeline connects people in need with mental health support in addition to delivering a range of national services.
Lifeline receives more than one million contacts each year from people seeking care via telephone, Internet or face-to-face.
It overcomes time and distance to provide support day or night. P&O Cruises provides Lifeline with surplus items from our ships and offices including blankets, appliances and computers in a partnership that will develop over time.
