P&O Entertainment

Up Close & Funny Comedy

To wrap up our month-long entertainment extravaganza, we ran an ‘Up Close and Funny’ event, drawing on the talents of some of the best comedians from the P&O Comedy Cruises. Filmed in the iconic ‘Sit Down Comedy Club’ in Brisbane, hosted by the hilarious Kat Davidson with comedy all-stars Lindsay Webb, Ellen Briggs and Terry Hansen, it was a comedy session full of laughs.

Enjoy the session ‘on-demand’ from the comforts of your own home.

80’s Playlist

The fashion may have been questionable but the music definitely was not. The 80's were a time of new wave, lovelorn ballads, pop, dance, hop-hop and glam metal. We challenge you to make it through this classic list of the 80's biggest hits without singing them silently in your head....over and over and over

You must have a Spotify account to access the P&O 80's playlist. If you do don't, it is easy to sign up

The Whitsundays

The Whitsundays consist of 74 exquisite islands and provide easy access to the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage listed underwater phenomenon that traces the Queensland coast for more than 2,300km.

Most of the Whitsundays islands are uninhabited, peppered with dense rainforest, an abundance of wildlife, hiking trails and perfect white sandy beaches. The area is world-renowned, and a once-in-a-lifetime Aussie travel experience, with Airlie Beach acting as its central hub.

P&O Cruises to Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays all year round. Cruise from Brisbane on the 7-night Barrier Reef Discovery or from Sydney take a 10-night round trip on the same itinerary. Then explore the incredible Great Barrier Reef from the three stunning ports of Airlie Beach, Cairns and Port Douglas.

Alternatively, book onboard a 4-night Short Break cruise departing from Brisbane and spend a day exploring Airlie Beach and the amazing Whitsundays.

Staying @ Home with Sharon

Hi, I'm Sharon! Remember me? I found love with my castaway, Don Juan on a deserted island in the South Pacific. I can't wait to cruise again, but until then I'll be staying at home. So, I thought I'd share some tips for keeping boredom at bay, and your body & soul in tip top shape.

Tip # 5 Tik Tok

Social distancing restrictions are slowly easing, but TikTok is still going crazy on socials. Try a #FlipTheSwitch or #SmallGestures challenge with your mates. Alternatively, boogie up a storm and TikTok it for all your followers. Get creative and have a laugh.

And remember to share the love with us,

Sharon xx

Cocktails, cocktails & more cocktails!

A cocktail @ sea is always far better than a cocktail on land. We might be biased, but we truly believe it is.

Throughout our pause in operations, we have shared all of our favourite onboard tipples and now have delicious library of recipes for you to try @ home. From our very decadent Toblerone & Mudslide cocktails, to Pina Coladas, frozen Margaritas, Martinis, Mojitos, Fruit Tingles, Hummingbirds & Cosmos.

Cruiselings, you are spoilt for choice. Enjoy responsibly with your favourite people :)
