P&O Provides Winning Trifecta For Onboard Entertainment During Melbourne Cup

Posted October 12th, 2015

The Melbourne Cup is almost here and P&O is turning on the entertainment during its specialty cruises into Melbourne for the event.

P&O's three ships -- Pacific Jewel, Pacific Dawn and Pacific Pearl -- will all be docked at Station Pier for "the race that stops the nation".

However, passengers will have more to be excited about than onboard luxury and exciting horse racing this year with all three ships featuring popular Australian personalities as invited guests.

The big names will include Carmelo Pizzino from Dancing with the Stars (Pacific Jewel); television presenter Zoe Sheridan (Pacific Dawn); and author and radio personality Bianca Dye (Pacific Pearl).

Pacific Pearl and Pacific Jewel will depart Sydney on October 31 on their six-night Cup cruises, while Pacific Dawn’s seven-night maiden Cup cruise will depart Brisbane on October 31.

Contact your Cruiseabout consultant in-store, on the phone, or online for last-minute Melbourne Cup cruise deals with P&O.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
