P&O Cruises has taken the plight of Aus­tralia’s straw­berry farm­ers “berry” se­ri­ously, run­ning a spe­cial “Straw­berry fair” across all five ships in the fleet last week­end.

The fruit in­dus­try in Aus­tralia has been rocked by a spate of spite­ful at­tacks on its pro­duce, prompt­ing the cruise line to take on the fruit­ful en­deav­our.

Pax chose from of a se­lec­tion of straw­berry desserts in the ships’ Pantry food out­let.

“We wanted to join our guests in stand­ing by straw­berry farm­ers who are cur­rently ex­pe­ri­enc­ing such a ma­jor chal­lenge,” said P&O Cruises Aus­tralia pres­i­dent Sture Myrmell.
