A group of P&O Cruises sales staff and travel agents enjoyed some rugby league action in Cairns on the weekend as part of the cruise line’s first NRL game day sponsorship.
There was a strong P&O presence during the sold out round 17 fixture between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the North Queensland Cowboys with one lucky league fan winning a cruise as part of a giveaway during the half-time show.
P&O’s support for the Bunnies – Cairns’ honorary rugby league team – during their annual home game in the Far North comes just months before the cruise line will base its first ship in the regional port.
The 1500-guest Pacific Eden will offer nine cruises from Cairns between September and November to destinations including Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, the Pacific Islands and the Whitsundays.
A seven-night Papua New Guinea cruise departing Cairns on September 10, 2016, is priced from $549* per person quad share or $799* per person twin share.
