The remote coastal inlet of Kuri Bay, north of Broome, has been added to the P&O Cruises network map for 2017, marking the first time the brand has allowed guests to disembark and explore the ultra-remote and picturesque north-west region of Australia.
Known for its red rock escarpments and clear waters, the stop in Kuri Bay will be part of a nine-night cruise departing from Fremantle on 16 May 2017 onboard Pacific Eden. Other stops on the itinerary include Exmouth and an overnight stay in Broome, with fares starting from $1,099 per person quad share.
Shore excursions during the day in Kuri Bay will see guests able to take advantage of walking tours around part of the historic area, viewing Aboriginal rock art and natural highlights. Further options will include scenic flights over the region or opportunities to visit a Paspaley pearl farm.
Revealing more details for its passengers to enjoy in 2017, P&O also revealed a partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia which will see a PlayStation Virtual Reality console added to each ship. The new technology will be used to take guests to all corners of the world which can be seen via a cruise ship. Pacific Jewel will be the first ship in the P&O fleet to fit the new device, with all ships to feature the technology over a 12-month roll out.
P&O also firmed up details of the exciting enhancements coming to Pacific Dawn early next year, in the form of two water slides which protrude over the edge of the ship, with the partially transparent tubing to offer a multi-coloured lighting effect.
Pacific Dawn‘s refurbishment will also include the addition of a new seafood restaurant and the installation of The Pantry, P&O’s new international food court.
