Hot deal

When you need a break but have little time to spare, forget driving in traffic to an average hotel –  get away and keep the kids busy over school holidays on a value-packed P&O Short Break. To sweeten the deal you’ll also visit Airlie Beach, the perfect base to explore the Great Barrier Reef. 

Pacific Encounter is one of P&O's new ships and will showcase many of P&O’s favourite features as well as a range of new ones that guests are going to love. Splurge and book a suite or selected mini-suite and along with a host of great benefits, you’ll gain access to Byron Beach Club, a private retreat with pool, spas and comfy seating, located on the top deck of the ship. Enjoy expansive views along with pure relaxation. Dine at Waterfront, Angelo’s, Dragon Lady or go casual in The Pantry. For something special head to our new celebrity chef concepts from Luke Mangan and Johnny di Francesco.* Find your favourite bar and chill to some live music or stay out late at our nightclub, Altitude. Families will love the dedicated indoor/outdoor family area with a pool, family focussed fun, games, parties and activities. There are more spaces to explore, more places to relax and more things to do. On Pacific Encounter, you’ll find there’s something for everyone.
