P&O Destinations – Airlie Beach

Cruising is a great way to disconnect & spend quality time with family & friends.

While we may not be able to cruise now, we can certainly start planning our future cruise adventures, and exploring our own beautiful Australian backyard is perfect for this.

In Airlie Beach QLD, discover one of the seven natural wonders of the world, dive into crystal clear waters or just soak up the relaxed vibe. It is the perfect spot to explore the Whitsundays; a stunning 74-island archipelago that spans the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. From the moment you arrive, you will discover why water lovers and yachties worldwide call it '100 Magic Miles'. Cruise to Airlie Beach from Brisbane or Sydney on the Great Barrier Reef Discovery Cruise. Additionally, from Brisbane, take a P&O One-Stop Short Break to Airlie Beach.

Staying @ Home with Sharon

Hi, I'm Sharon! Remember me? I found love with my castaway, Don Juan on a deserted island in the South Pacific. I can't wait to cruise again, but until then I'll be staying at home. So, I thought I'd share some tips for keeping boredom at bay, and your body & soul in tip top shape.

Tip # 4 Find-A Word

Nothing clears the cobwebs like a good word puzzle. Download Sharon’s Find-A-Word, test your P&O knowledge & challenge your family to see who can complete the puzzle the quickest.

Remember to play nice! Everyone's a winner,

Tip # 3 Spotify Iso-cation Playlists

Put your favourite tracks into a feel good, iso-cation playlist on Spotify and take your ears on a little holiday!

A few classics are a great start, but you can choose anything you love, whether that’s Blue Room jazz, 90’s favourites or rock anthem classics!

Alternatively, you can plug into our P&O Sailaway Party playlist and have your own pumping Sailaway party @ home.

Never stop dancing, guys! Sharon x

Tip # 1 - Craft

Now that you have a little more time on your hands, it’s the perfect time to put them to work and develop a crafty new skill! YouTube has loads of online tutorials where you can learn to paint, draw, crochet, knit or macrame. Here’s a little something I macra-made in my spare time.

Share your creations online and challenge your mates to do their own creative projects. I can’t wait to see with what you come up with! Get crafty kids, but most of all have fun!

Tip # 2 Video Parties

Video conferencing is a fun way to keep in touch with your friends & family while you’re at home. Spice up your virtual house parties with dress ups, themed nights, takeaway and a splash of vino!

As you can see, I’m dressed as Carol Baskin! Who will you find at your cheeky Zoom parteee?

Keep in touch! Sharon x
