As Australia's favourite cruise line we love to make a big fuss on our Nation's big day. As part of our 2017 Australia Day celebrations guests onboard all our Australia Day cruises enjoyed a Great Australian Deck Party  which included a range of quintessentially Australian music, movies and food including a BBQ, green and gold pancakes and of course lamingtons.

Sydney Harbour Celebrations

P&O Cruises’ ships have been part of the action in Sydney on Australia Day for the past five years. This year again saw three of the cruise line’s ships in Sydney on Australia Day. Pacific Eden and Pacific Pearl were both on the Harbour on Australia Day giving guests a front row seat to soak up all hustle and bustle of the harbour. Pacific Dawn called at White Bay Cruise Terminal and a free shuttle was available to take guests to Sydney CBD to experience Sydney's Australia Day celebrations first hand.

Special Performance 2017 - Jimmy Barnes!

And because we at P&O are huge supporters of Australian musicians, with hundreds of local musos performing across our fleet every year, we organised a very special, one-off performance onboard Pacific Eden by a true Australian legend Jimmy Barnes! Pacific Eden's Australia Day cruise departed Sydney on Wednesday afternoon, then returned to Sydney Harbour early on the morning of Australia Day when guests enjoyed Jimmy’s special performance. The Today Show was also there, broadcasting live from the deck of Pacific Eden.
