We provide the entertainment

With spectacular stage shows produced especially for P&O and with Aussies in mind, comedy acts, and performances by local comedians and musicians, the hardest part will be choosing which to see next! Better yet, once the curtain comes down you won’t have to worry about travelling home - all you need to do is walk back to your room.
