P&O Cruises Australia is very excited to be welcoming Pacific Explorer back home to Sydney on April 18.

In the great maritime tradition of our harbour city, the boating community can share the excitement as Pacific Explorer becomes the first cruise ship to arrive in Australia in more than two years.

P&O Australia encourages boat owners to be on the water on Easter Monday as Pacific Explorer makes her way from the Heads to the Overseas Passenger Terminal.

In doing so, you can be in the running for a chance to win a P&O Cruise by posting your Pacific Explorer arrival images on Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag #pocruisesishome.*
