Terms and Conditions

The P&O Assurance Program (“P&O Assurance”) is available for all bookings on P&O Cruises Australia cruises scheduled to depart on and before 30 June 2022. Guests on eligible cruises can cancel their booking prior to final payment due date and receive a full refund with all cruise fare cancellation fees waived. If the cancellation occurs after final payment date and 14 days prior to sailing date, the guest can receive a Future Cruise Credit (“FCC”) equal to the amount of the cruise cancellation fee upon request via our online form. The FCC is not transferable and may not be redeemed for cash. The FCC can only be used towards the payment of the cruise fare on bookings with P&O Cruises Australia. It can be applied to multiple bookings. For cancellations made prior to 25 March 2021, any unused FCC amount will expire on 31 December 2021.
