With the countdown on for Pacific Explorer, P&O Cruises is offering agents in its Flagship Achievers program the chance to be the first to get a taste of its latest ship.
The six travel agents with the highest revenue booked and deposited between May 15-28, 2017 on any Pacific Explorer sailings will win a twin share balcony room on the 77,000-tonne ship’s one-night showcase cruise on Wednesday June 21.
The exclusive preview cruise will include the chance to taste the ship’s new 'fast-casual' eateries including a poolside Grill called Luke's by Australian chef and restaurateur Luke Mangan and 400 Gradi, a traditional Neapolitan Italian pizzeria from famed Melbourne pizza chef Johnny Di Francesco.
The top sellers will also have the chance to try exciting new offerings onboard Pacific Explorer including cocktails made with handcrafted spirits from Sydney distillery Archie Rose Distilling Co in the ship’s small bar, The Bonded Store, as well as a waterpark with two spectacular waterslides and a relaxed barefoot lawn bowls area.
As an extra incentive, the group will be among the first to dine at A Taste of Salt, a new seven-course degustation available at Chef’s Table. The meal features some of Luke’s land-based favourites such as the ‘Glass’ Sydney crab omelette and Luke’s liquorice parfait, paired with matching Australian wines.
Flagship College was launched last year as part of the new P&O agent website and offers incentives for qualifying agents including free cruises and Flagship Points which can lead to cash bonuses.
