P&O backs SA re­cov­ery

Cruise Weekly - - News -

P&O Cruises has com­menced its South Aus­tralian cruise sea­son to­day, with ex­pec­ta­tions of bring­ing al­most 5,000 vis­i­tors to Kan­ga­roo Is­land via four cruises.

The first sail­ing of the pro­gram de­parted Ade­laide bound for the pop­u­lar is­land des­ti­na­tion, which was badly af­fected by the re­cent bush­fire cri­sis.

“With the sup­port of our guests, we’re happy to be re­turn­ing to this won­der­ful part of the coun­try and help­ing to play a part in its re­cov­ery which con­tin­ues the mes­sage that the lo­cal com­mu­nity is re­silient, coura­geous and ready to wel­come vis­i­tors,” said P&O Cruises Pres­i­dent Sture Myrmell.

“We have been of­fer­ing cruises to Kan­ga­roo Is­land from Ade­laide for more than 85 years, and to­gether with our guests, ap­pre­ci­ate all that the re­gion has to of­fer from its di­verse na­tive wildlife to strik­ing coastal rock for­ma­tions,” he added.

Pa­cific Aria will also of­fer six round-trip cruises from Ade­laide un­til 06 Apr, be­fore de­part­ing on a six-night, one-way cruise to Auck­land in New Zealand.
