P&O Cruises has announced a new overnight Pacific Islands experience, providing passengers with the rare opportunity to enjoy an extended stay, complete with evening tours, in Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila.
The overnight Port Vila visit has been added to three 11-night Pacific Islands cruises on Pacific Dawn, sailing from Brisbane.
During their stay, passengers will be able to choose from three evening tours including a Vila sunset cruise, Melanesian feast and cultural performance and the aptly-named A Toast of Vila, showing off the best of local cuisine.
Ann Sherry, CEO of Carnival Australia, which operates P&O Cruises, said the extended Port Vila visits were the only overnight calls offered by the cruise line in the Pacific and predicted they would be a popular addition.
“Port Vila already rates highly among our passengers, so we think they’ll be thrilled to stay longer and explore more of this part of Vanuatu,” Ms Sherry said.
