CRUISE ON INTO THE MEL­BOURNE CUP

Bundaberg Style - - CRUISE -

THE horses, the fash­ion, the ex­cite­ment, there is noth­ing quite like the race that stops the na­tion – the Mel­bourne Cup.

While a get to­gether with friends in all your colour­ful finest may be fun, be­ing track­side at the ac­tual race is some­thing to be­hold and there is even some­what of a dif­fer­ent way to get there.

P&O's cruises to the Mel­bourne Cup are a dif­fer­ent and ex­cit­ing way to en­joy one of Aus­tralia's favourite events.

Cruise to the most glam­orous day of the year and watch the Mel­bourne Cup live from Flem­ing­ton with trans­fers in­cluded to and from the event.

Guests also have the chance to up­grade their tick­ets to sit in the exclusive P&O En­clo­sure.

Travel and Cruise Bund­aberg’s Jenny Gregg said this was a fun way to travel to the Mel­bourne Cup and was al­ready prov­ing hugely pop­u­lar.

“In 2018, Pa­cific Dawn sails from Bris­bane on a seven-night cruise to the rac­ing event of the year with one night and two full days in Mel­bourne, while there are also two cruises to the Cup from Syd­ney,” she said.

“There are the op­tion of Pa­cific Ex­plorer and Pa­cific Eden which de­part on a six-night cruise with two nights and three full days in Mel­bourne al­low­ing vis­i­tors to make the most of what this fine city has to of­fer.”

P&O's Mel­bourne Cup cruises can carry a field of Mel­bourne Cup per­son­al­i­ties from race call­ers and jock­eys as well as fash­ion and style en­ter­tain­ers and well known Aus­tralian en­ter­tain­ers en­abling race­go­ers to get in the mood from the mo­ment the ships sail from Syd­ney and Bris­bane.

P&O Cruises pres­i­dent Sture Myrmell said he ex­pected the Mel­bourne Cup cruise to be a win­ner with Aus­tralians choos­ing to travel to the rac­ing event.

"With ac­com­mo­da­tion and meals all in­cluded in the cruise fare plus trans­fers and en­try to the races, cruis­ing to the Mel­bourne Cup with P&O is a great value way to ex­pe­ri­ence the race that cap­tures the heart of Aus­tralians na­tion­wide," Mr Myrmell said.
