Getaway on a P&O Short Break
Short Breaks are Short Cruises that give you the complete holiday feeling in 2-4 easy & effortless days
Planning holidays can be tiresome, especially for a short break. It’s tough enough deciding where to go. then how you'll get there, and let’s not get started about what and where to eat. By the time you are done organising, you probably need another holiday. Wouldn't it be great to just pack your bags and climb aboard? Guess what? You can! Say hello to P&O Short Breaks.
What is a P&O Short Break?
P&O offer the biggest range of cruises between 2-4 nights and have something for everyone.
Our Short Break cruises take you to some of Australia’s premier destinations, such as the beautiful reefs of the Whitsundays and Moreton Island as well as the sunny beaches of the Sunshine Coast. Or if a cultural break is more your style, a southern getaway to Melbourne or from Auckland to Napier in New Zealand is also an option. Or you can just stay onboard, lay by the pool and go nowhere at all.
Specialty & Event Cruises
If you’re not in a rush to go anywhere in particular, check out our themed cruises which include our fabulous comedy cruises, our annual Big Laugh Festival, Country Music, 80's, Elvis, Melbourne Cup, Australia Day, Christmas and New Year cruises.
