Another new port for P&O Cruises Australia

P&O Cruises Australia will make its maiden call at Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula next year when Pacific Pearl sails from Sydney on a four-night sailing on March 16.

Mornington Peninsula, about an hour’s drive from Melbourne, adds to a growing line-up of regional ports the company is pioneering. These include Mooloolaba on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast which will be visited for the first time by Pacific Pearl in August and Western Australia’s Margaret River which will be visited for the first time by Pacific Jewel in April next year.

Boot-shaped like Italy, the Mornington Peninsula and its colourful bathing boxes, is reminiscent of the Mediterranean with beaches, vineyards, olive groves and outdoor dining.
