In a Touching Gesture P&O Cruises’ Pacific Explorer Crew Ensures Traditional Australia Day Cake is Still Baked

Knowing Australians would be unable to gather in large numbers on their national day of celebration, the team on P&O Cruises’ flagship Pacific Explorer made sure one important Australia Day tradition was still honoured.In a touching tribute to guests who would normally be on board, the crew baked an Australia Day cake just like they do on Australia Day cruises every year.

The cake is pictured here along with members of the Pacific Explorer crew who made it possible. Loyal P&O guests loved seeing the cake posted on social media and took the opportunity to say how much they look forward to cruising again.

“It was a heartwarming gesture for the crew to bake an Australia Day cake and a reminder that Pacific Explorer is very much part of Australia’s home grown cruise line,” said P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell.

The baking of the Australia Day cake was also a reminder of the fresh produce that P&O Cruises buys from local suppliers during normal cruise operations.

During a normal three-day cruise such as an Australia Day cruise, P&O purchases 2.5 tonnes of Australian red meat, enough to serve 2600 mini meat pies and 1200 sausage rolls.

In a typical cruise year, P&O uses between 1000 to 1500 tonnes of red meat and looks forward to sailing and again being able to support local producers on Australia Day and throughout the year.
