Bags packed, ready to go

Don’t pack anything that you’re not happy for us to see. All luggage will be security screened by an x-ray machine at embarkation.

We recommend no more than two bags per person. Each bag can be no bigger than 140cm x 60cm x 40cm and weigh no more than 32kg. If you’re flying to port, it’s important to note that airlines may have different luggage restrictions. When you’re packing, keep in mind that all luggage must be stowed in your room.

Luggage labels have been included in with your eTickets. Please print as many as you need, complete the necessary information and attach these to your baggage prior to arriving at the wharf. If you’re flying to or from the ship on P&O Cruises’ nominated flights on the day of sailing, it’s vital every item of luggage has a P&O Cruises identification label on it to assist us in transporting your entire luggage to and from the ship. Airline luggage restrictions apply to guests flying before or after their cruise.

Take a number

Too excited to wait and see what room you’re in? Find out your room number on ‘Cruise Personaliser’ at or It is also displayed on your eTicket. Alternatively, P&O Cruises staff will be able to advise you of your room number when you check-in on the day.

Be careful with carry on

For safety reasons, there are rules for taking liquids, aerosols and gels on flights into and out of Australia. These rules also apply when transiting on international flights within Australia. Please check with the airline at the time of booking for up-to-date restrictions.

These rules are necessary to protect you from the threat of liquid explosives.

Each container of liquids, aerosols or gels in your carry-on baggage must be 100 millilitres/grams or less. All the containers must be sealed in a transparent, one-litre plastic bag. You are only allowed one plastic bag per person. For more information on clear resealable bags please see the frequently asked questions section of the website listed below.

You may still carry onboard prescription medicines. Baby products and non-prescription medicines necessary for the flight are also allowed. Proof of need may be required.

When you get to the screening point, you will have to surrender any liquids, aerosols or gels greater than 100ml/g that you still have with you, including duty free. Random frisk searches are part of the screening process. For further information, please visit:
