Make 2023 the year of YOU

Let’s be honest: the last few years have been a series of ups and downs, filled with uncertainty and sudden change of plans. But with life slowly going back to normal, and travel back on the cards, it looks like 2023 is the perfect year to re-centre and focus on ourselves.

Want to make 2023 your best year yet? Here are a few ideas on how to make it a memorable year, filled with plenty of new adventures.


Make 2023 the year for new experiences

Sure, the last few years certainly abounded in new experiences for most of us, but this has been a challenging time for the majority, as we adjusted to the new normal. 2023 is the perfect time to tick some items off your bucket list. Maybe it’s time to explore your own backyard. Why not make this the year you stop putting off your Aussie travel plans and finally do it! If pristine reef, coral cays and tropical islands sound like your kind of holiday, then our Barrier Reef Discovery Cruise is the cruise for you.

Maybe you want to try new flavours and sample all the food you’ve never had the opportunity to taste. Hop on our Sapphire Coast Food Festival Cruise, departing from Sydney, and unleash your inner gourmand! Perhaps you want to discover different cultures and customs in further-flung destinations. Book a South Pacific cruise and immerse yourself in a place that feels a world away from the ordinary.

Make 2023 the year of laughter

Though we tried our very best, the laughs were few and far these last few years. Sure, we’ve found humour in the unlikeliest of places, and our cheeky Aussie spirit has yet to be dampened.

Let’s reclaim laughter this year. It’s part of our social identity, and we’re ready to indulge in a good belly laugh again. Hop on a Comedy Cruise and laugh until your sides ache. These short cruises offer a chance to see live shows by your favourite comedians, participate in professionally-led comedy workshops, and even perform in front of your fellow guests.

If you want this new year to be full of smiles and laughter, a P&O Comedy Cruise is the place to start.

Make 2023 the year of relaxation

Most of us have spent the last few years blurring the lines between work and home. Remote work has made balancing our free time that much more complex, and even without an office commute thrown in the mix, we’re still hitting the end of the week exhausted.

Lets claim 2023 as a year of relaxation, a year of unwinding, stretching out and feeling good. Fortunately, no matter which P&O Cruise you choose, there’s plenty of time to loosen up. Whether you lounge on the deck, hit The Oasis for a quiet, child-free refuge or book a rejuvenating experience at Elemis at Sea Day Spa, a P&O Cruise gives you ample opportunity to recharge and relax.

Make 2023 the year of indulgence

Sure, we may have recently indulged ourselves in a bit more online shopping and food delivery than we usually would have, but who can blame us? We firmly believe that it’s OK to pamper yourself once in a while. And 2023 is no different.

On a P&O Cruise, you can treat yourself to some serious retail therapy at any of our tax- and duty-free stores. Whether you fancy watches, jewellery, fashion, beauty or a cheeky tipple, we’ve got some of the world’s best-known brands, and they’re always 10% less than Australian RRP.

Our onboard dining options are world-class for those who prefer to indulge their taste buds over their wallets. Enjoy classic and cutting-edge fare at any of the restaurants included in your cruise fare.

Make 2023 a year to remember

2023 can be a year you look back on fondly for many years to come. There’s no shortage of places to visit, experiences to have or memories to make. With P&O Cruises in 2023, your dream holiday is right around the corner. From making the most of your annual leave to celebrating special occasions like weddings and corporate events, claim your spot aboard your chosen cruise from our expansive 2023 lineup. So book your cruise now, and set aside 2023 as the Year of You.
