Business Events News - - Front Page -

P&O Cruises has put for­ward its new Aus­tralian-based ship Pa­cific Ex­plorer in its lat­est move to lure con­fer­ences to sea.

The 77,000-tonne ship made its de­but in Syd­ney last month af­ter a 12-day dry dock in which a host of new fea­tures were added for the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

The ship is now avail­able for cor­po­rate book­ings, sail­ing year round from Syd­ney with ca­pac­ity for up to 1,998 guests.

Its largest con­fer­ence space is the Mar­quee Showlounge which caters for up to 540 del­e­gates and dou­bles as an en­ter­tain­ment venue for on­board stage shows.

A sec­ond theatre, Black Cir­cus, caters for up to 230, while other spa­ces can han­dle meet­ings of up to 50 del­e­gates.

P&O Cruises cor­po­rate groups sales man­ager Re­becca Mu­ta­nen said Pa­cific Ex­plorer had “all the right in­gre­di­ents” for con­fer­ences and in­cen­tives. “P&O’s sis­ter ships Pa­cific Eden and Pa­cific Aria of­fer three ded­i­cated con­fer­ence venues whilst Pa­cific Ex­plorer has two large the­atres and smaller venues making her ideal for flex­i­ble con­fer­ences,” she said.

“The ship is also the per­fect in­cen­tive and we’ve al­ready seen sev­eral large or­gan­i­sa­tions se­cure their cruise for next year.”

Pa­cific Ex­plorer of­fers more than 60 on board ac­tiv­i­ties that can be in­te­grated into team­build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as a rock mu­sic show and “Gats­bythemed” theatre pro­duc­tion.

Con­fer­ence cruise prices in­clud­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion, all meals, venue hire, AV and tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance start from $529 per per­son twin share for a three-night cruise ex Syd­ney.
