3 Cruises to Take on the Pacific Dawn This Summer

Posted November 8th, 2013

The year is drawing to a close and annual leave feels like it’s within reach, two luscious words to wrap your head around as you dive into holiday mode and wonder where you’ll escape to this summer. While some of us are blessed with an abundance of days to dine and dance our lives away, others must be strategic, expending a targeted amount of cash on a ho-hum holiday. Whether you’re chasing a short, seven day siesta, or an extended couple of weeks away from the pressures of the Christmas season, the Pacific Dawn is pulling into a port near you, loaded with possibilities. Are you ready to stop day dreaming and start living?

P&O Australia's Pacific Dawn

Pacific Island Hopper

Go tropical and dive into a Pacific excursion, spanning seven of the most glorious days you’ll ever experience. After supping on the melting pot of the culturally delectable Noumea, relax on the decks of the Dawn and savour a delicious cocktail, as you gaze out over the sparkling blue ocean before you. Lift your spirits with a shore trip to Lifou, a traditional pit stop with big surprises, and while bigger is supposed to be better, you’ll come away from these powdery beaches with a renewed vigour for simplicity. Do you feel a new lease of energy surging through your muscles? Yes? What better outlet than an adventure trail of Vila, a Caribbean inspired oasis hidden from the usual tourist brochures. Peace, sun and shimmering waves, heaven on earth.

PNG Discovery

One of closest neighbours, Papua New Guinea, routinely visits our airwaves and news reports, a mysterious field of possible wonder waiting to be explored – while the vibrant hills, forests and valleys of PNG have an air of daring around them, the Pacific Dawn is ready to shine brightly in Milne Bay, show its cruisers the diverse beauty of Dioni Island and introduce you, and everyone else aboard, to the smile raising experience of the Kundu Festival in Alotau. After wrapping your tongue around the 841 languages floating around the islands, chill out in the Dawn Spa and enjoy a massage, uncoiling the excitement and adrenalin of the passing days.

Food and Wine

Do you fancy yourself a budding foodie? Are you a fine cuisine connoisseur, or a flirtatious fusion fan? Can you guess the wine type and grape variation without reading the label, tripping over scatterings of berry accents and fig essence? A Food and Wine cruise on the Pacific Dawn will be every dream you have come true, and more, as industry experts and recognisable personalities take centre stage, taking you on a gastronomic journey. Between sessions and to work off those extra creeping calories, make a splash and frolic in the pool or sweat it out in a brand new gym, kitted out with the hottest equipment.

Do you have plans this Christmas/New Year break? No? Spend a week or two aboard the Pacific Dawn and bid 2013 goodbye in comfort and modern style.
