These are extraordinary times.
All of us at P&O are looking positively toward the future. Cruisey days, sunny skies, ocean views and service with a smile, in a world that’s Like No Place on Earth.
We miss you and can't wait to welcome you back onboard!
Until then, stay at home and please stay connected.
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.Find out more
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
Anyone feel like an icy cold Lime Margarita? Make this delicious cocktail @ home, and you will feel like you are on holiday.
Hot tip: Swap lime for strawberry puree to make a strawberry frozen margarita!
Cosmopolitan and Pina Colada
You’ll feel like you're back cruising with P&O with one of our delicious cruisey cocktails. Mix this one up @ home and stay connected to your family & to us.
Remember the time you'd share your favourite holiday moments, by posting a hand-picked postcard. Those were the days.
With some vintage flair, we have created a series of iconic postcards that celebrate idyllic P&O destinations. And we’ve included a colouring page for you to 'get creative' with @ home.
