Sture Myrmell is taking a realistic and pragmatic approach to pauses
P&O Cruises Australia has extended its current operational pause to departures on or before June 18.

As reported here last month, the company had announced Pacific Adventure (formerly Golden Princess) would commence sailing from Sydney on April 30 and Pacific Encounter (ex-Star Princess) would homeport in Brisbane from May 7.

Pragmatic approach

‘While we are becoming increasingly confident in the restart of cruising in Australia, we are continuing with the realistic and pragmatic approach we have adopted previously,’ President Sture Myrmell said.

Myrmell thanked people affected by the pause for their ‘patience and understanding’ and said the company will contact them, either directly or through their travel agents, to let them know what options are available.
