It's Just a Few Days

It's just a few days until P&O Cruises Australia resumes service with a four-night aboard Pacific Explorer round trip cruise from Sydney to Brisbane on May 31. 
   The ship is crewed and excitement abounds. 
   As part of the process, the restaurant staff is seeing and sampling dozens of new menu items.

Golf Was Never Even This Cool on the Ship

Carnival Cruise Line is bringing the fun back to Sydney early. They don't return to Australia until October, but through mid-June, visitors to the Sydney Zoo's GLOW Light Festival can play miniature golf Carnival-style around a friendly frog, a happy hippo, a chirpy crocodile - and of course, a glowing Carnival funnel.

Stepping into the Past

When Carnival Celebration debuts in November (2022), passengers will be able to enter the Golden Jubilee Bar through the original polished brass and glass doors that were at the entrance to the night club aboard TSS Carnivale thus literally walking through Carnival Cruise Line's history. The lounge will be filled with memorabilia and recreated design elements from Carnival's 50-year history.
