P&O Australia celebrates four millionth passenger with A$4m contest

Sture Myrmell is giving four passengers the chance to become instant millionaires
Sture Myrmell, svp P&O Cruises Australia, has launched the biggest promotion in the company’s history to celebrate hitting the four million passenger mark this year.

Just four years ago, P&O Cruises Australia hailed its three millionth passenger.

The A$4m contest is open to Australian and New Zealand passengers who book any P&O cruise by November 25. This is a red-letter day when Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden (formerly Holland America Line’s Ryndam and Statendam respectively) join Pacific Pearl, Pacific Jewel and Pacific Dawn on Sydney Harbour for a spectacular display of the company’s new five-ship fleet.

The names of the passengers will go into a draw to win one of four places on a four-night cruise from Sydney to Moreton Island on December 9, 2015.

During that cruise the four finalists will play ‘a thrilling numbers game’ which will give each of them the opportunity to become an instant millionaire.

The company will also give away up to A$4m in onboard credits for new bookings made before November 25.

Myrmell said P&O wants to thank passengers for helping it reach its four million passenger milestone.

‘We’re very excited about our four million passenger achievement, as well as what lies ahead, so we wanted to celebrate with our biggest ever promotion,’ he said.
