P&O Cruises Announces First Cruise Calls to Fraser Island

Thursday, October 29, 2015 -

P&O Cruises 2In another spectacular development in its suite of cruise itineraries, P&O Cruises today announced that it will next year make two calls to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island located off the southern Queensland coast.

Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden — the two latest additions to the P&O Cruises fleet — will call at Fraser Island on April 3 and December 12 respectively, the first of a number of calls to the Island which boasts some of the world’s most magnificent scenery, wildlife and visitor experiences.

The calls to Fraser Island, one of 15 regional destinations in Australia pioneered by P&O Cruises in recent years, are an exciting part of the line’s soon to be released cruise program for its five-ship fleet (with the arrival in November of Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden).

The first two Fraser Island cruises will be on the 1500-guest Pacific Aria on a roundtrip itinerary from Brisbane in April and on the 1500-guest Pacific Eden on a roundtrip cruise from Sydney in December.

Both cruises are being conducted in conjunction with the world renowned Kingfisher Bay Resort which
offers a range of eco-friendly four wheel drive tours of the island along its beaches and 1500km of tracks.
“Fraser Island’s Indigenous inhabitants gave their island home a name that means paradise and our cruise passengers will have the opportunity to discover this for themselves,” said Ann Sherry CEO of Carnival Australia which operates P&O Cruises, one of seven cruise lines in the company’s house of brands.
