Family style share platters are popular features on the Waterfront Restaurant menu. Designed for four to six people to share, choose from platters such as Honey and lemon whole roasted chicken with bread stuffing, natural gravy, charred onions and root vegetables, or baked, rustic beef and onion pie in Shiraz sauce with roasted vegetables.

The Pantry

Exclusive to P&O The Pantry is a brand new dining experience like nothing you've seen on a cruise before. Say good bye to the traditional cruise buffet and hello to freshly made food from around the world. It's the perfect venue for a quick bite or long lunch and the best bit, it's included in the your fare.

The Pantry provides an all inclusive dining experience for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with delicious food and a contemporary café vibe, replacing the former buffet area on deck 11.

Inspired by modern Australia, Hook's Fish and Chips feels like a beachfront restaurant. Mexicana embraces its Aztec look. The sleek façade of the Sugar Bar is the perfect backdrop to the rainbow colours of the decadent sweets and cakes on display. It's no surprise that Fat Cow carvery is all about meat. Curry House dishes up modern Indian while Stix serves up tantalising Asian fare. Drinks are all sorted at the blue and white tiled Coffee Bar.

Choose from communal long tables to lounge chairs and high tables, with scattered pictures, plants, fruit bowls and books adding to the relaxed urban café feel, created by Tillberg Design of Sweden.

  • Kettle & Bun:Kettle & Bun offers freshly baked bread, expertly crafted sandwiches, great tasting salads and mouth-watering soups. It seems unfair to choose just one, so mix and match for your perfect combo.
  • Fat Cow:Vegetarians beware, at Fat Cow there's more meat than you can imagine, offering the finest cuts to send meat lovers into a flutter. Try tender carvings, roast chicken (using our own secret recipe), succulent legs of lamb, cured hams, roast pork racks and beef scotch fillets that melt in your mouth. It's all sourced from local producers and served with a wide selection of rustic sides and condiments to create the perfect roast dinner.
  • Sugar Bar:Discover a mouth-watering selection of cakes, pastries and individual desserts all freshly made onboard at Sugar Bar. If you're in the mood for something sweet, bring the family for some handmade desserts to top off any meal.
  • Mexicana:Our soft or hard shell tacos filled with favourites like homemade salsas and pickles, chilli, guacamole, fresh lime and cheese will impress even the seasoned salsa connoisseur. It's a fresh and spicy treat to enjoy anytime.
  • Stix:China, Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar - they all have their own word for 'chop sticks', so onboard we just call them Stix! Indulge your passion for Asia's finest cuisines including traditional rice dishes, the freshest stir-fries, sizzling noodles and heart-warming dumpling soups. And don't miss our famous P&O Laksa!
  • Hook's Fish & Chips:Surf and turf goes casual with P&O's Fish & Chips. Serving up crispy battered fish and hot chips with the perfect amount of crunch, this onboard 'fish and chip shop' knows how to please. Get your hands on the freshest seafood and daily specials like salt and pepper squid, lemon and herb calamari rings or crumbed scallops. Yum!
  • Curry House:Where does the best curry in the world come from? Right here at P&O! Curry House is a smorgasbord of classic curry flavours and authentic dishes. Whether you're enjoying an old favourite or trying something new (like the renowned P&O tandoori), you'll love the incredible range, complemented by homemade breads, chutneys, raitas and pickles.

Favourite dishes on the Thai-inspired menu include the traditional massaman beef curry; think melt-in-your-mouth beef in a creamy coconut curry which includes peanuts and chunks of potato.

One of the more innovative dishes on the Thai menu is the pork cheeks with caramel dressing and grapefruit salad. The chefs roast the pork cheeks until they are crispy and tender before slicing them into cubes and pouring a spicy caramel dressing on top - a sauce melded with star anise, red wine vinegar and lime juice. To complement the rich flavours of the meat the dish is then garnished with coriander, Thai mint and Thai basil.

Booking information

To reserve a cabin(s), you must complete our reservations enquiry form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology.

Alternative you can contact us by -

  • Email Cruise Republic on cruise@cruiserepublic.info
  • Telephone 1300 44 00 26 (Australia) or 0800 122 129 (New Zealand)

At the time of reservation you must provide us with your full name as it appears on your passport as well as your date of birth. By making a booking with us through any of the three methods you will be deemed to have agreed to our information, Terms and Conditions.

Once you have submitted your enquiry through our website, you will receive a “CR” reference number and a bounce back email to the email address provided. This reference number is confirmation we have received your enquiry and we will come back to you shortly with the details of your booking – please be aware, this is not a confirmation and is only a summary of your booking request. We will hold the cabin in your name “for up to 5 days” as controlled by the cruise line themselves. On some cruises, the payment may be required on the day of booking or within 1-5 days of making the booking as controlled by the cruise line.

Once we have held a cabin, we will contact you via phone or email, to advise of availability and confirm the price and details. A booking is confirmed when you have been received an email confirmation notice and should you wish to proceed, we will provide you with our payment options to make your deposit payment (or full payment if the cruise is within 90 days). Your payment then becomes subject to the cancellation policy of the cruise line and Cruise Republic. These are stated in the terms and conditions. When your booking has been confirmed with a deposit payment we will send you your cruise booking number with the cruise line. Once you receive your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date without incurring a penalty. If you are booking via phone, please first make sure you have read the terms and conditions. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the customer to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure

In booking on/via this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Cruise Ship company/operator.


Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus and applicable fees set you by the cruise line. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.


Once a deposit is made towards your cruise holiday it is deemed that you have accepted our terms and conditions, so are subject to any cancellation fees. Bookings cancelled after the deposit is paid, will incur a cancellation fee of $200 per cabin plus any additional cancellation fees set out by the cruise line. There are no cool down periods. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.

Due to the issuing of refunds via Cheque by the cruiselines, refunds can take 4-6 weeks to reach us should you be entitled to any refund.


Payments towards your cruise holiday made by credit cards are subject to a transaction fee of 1.5% for Visa and Mastercard payments. We also accept AMEX which incur a 3.2% credit card fee. Debit cards are processed like a credit card therefore credit card fees will apply per transaction. Payments made by bank deposit do not incur any transaction fees nor do payments made using the BPAY payment system. Please be aware payments made via bank deposit or BPAY within 24 hours of your booking expiring will require a legitimate receipt/screen shot of payment emailed through.

Onboard Credits

On selected departures we will offer you onboard credits & these may not be combinable with all cabin categories and promotions. We will send you through a confirmation which will confirm if the onboard credit is available against your booking. Making changes to your reservation could result in any onboard credits being removed. Once you have embarked the ship, the onboard credit will be applied to your onboard account to use towards any onboard purchases. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time.

'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Inside, Outside, Balcony) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated at the cruise lines discretion and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, the cruise line may (at their discretion) upgrade your stateroom to a higher classed category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category you decide to book at the time of the cruise including obstructed view cabins.
If travelling with Family and Friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you not to book on a Guarantee.
We cannot guarantee your cabins will be assigned near one another, on the same deck, same side or forward/aft on the ship nor accept any requests.

Complimentary Upgrades

Depending on any last minute availability the cruise lines will automatically upgrade cabins to higher categories. The upgrades can place you towards the front of the ship, midships or at the back of the ship and not necessarily on a higher deck level (i.e.: Insides Deck 10 may be upgraded to Ocean view Deck 5). As the cruise lines cannot upgrade every booking, you should book a category in which you are happy to sail. Once the upgrade has been assigned, should you dislike the cabin location we are unable to accept any changes or requests and cannot be reversed.
If travelling with family and friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you to decline the upgrades. The cruise line do not guarantee all of the cabins will be upgraded, or that they will be upgraded near one another.

Future Cruise Credits

While we are happy to apply your Future Cruise Credits from the cruiselines to your booking with us, this may affect your online discounted pricing. We will still do our best to provide competitive pricing based on the discount we can offer on the new cruise fare once the future cruise credits have been applied to your booking. Please note if Future Cruise Credits are applied after your deposit has been paid may affect your final balance.

Passport & Visa Requirements.

For all international cruises all passengers will require to be in possession of a valid passport. The passport must have 6 months validity from the cruise return date.
Visa's may also be required and at the sole responsibility of the passenger. Please check with the relevant embassies or a Visa Services company for assistance.
Cruise Republic will not take any responsibility for passport or visa requirements.

Your fare

Your fare is determined by the fare type, the number of passengers in your cabin, its location on the ship, the amenities offered, port charges, government taxes and any applicable airfares including taxes and fees. Child fares, where available, only apply when children are the third (3rd) or fourth (4th) passenger in a cabin and are aged under 12 years or younger.

Fare changes

Once booked, your fare is only subject to any increased taxes. You will be notified of this before it is added to your fare or to your on board account.

Sometimes we will release promotional fares. These can be offered and withdrawn at any time. If after booking you decide to change to one of these promotional fares, you will need to cancel your existing booking and our ‘Cancellation & Refunds’ policy will apply.

Cabin Changes

When making a booking with a specific cabin number, please advise us or your Travel Agent if you do not want your cabin changed. This means that you would not be offered a complimentary upgrade to a higher priced category, if one was to become available. Please note that your cabin can still be changed for operational reasons, including when the number of people booked in the cabin is less that the number of beds in the cabin (for example, two passengers booked in a four bedded cabin).

Fuel supplement

We may elect to impose a fuel supplement at any time, in which case any additional fees will apply to new bookings only. The total price quoted to you at the time of booking will be inclusive of any applicable fuel supplement.

Booking changes

Once you have made your booking, please check your invoice, ‘Cruise Personaliser’, or with your  Agent to ensure the details are correct.

Should you need to make changes to your booking the following administration fees will apply:

Fare Type

Fee per name change

Value plus

$25 ^


$25 ^

Go $75 per change per person ^

* One original passenger from the booking must always remain in the cabin. If the cancelling passenger was the only person that qualified the booking for a promotional fare (eg. past passenger fare), additional and remaining passengers will no longer be entitled to this promotional fare. The booking will revert to a different fare and the remaining passengers will need to pay the difference in cost, if any.

^ Additional fees charged by airlines will be passed on to the passengers.

Should you decide to upgrade/downgrade your cabin category or sailing date, any onboard credit benefits may drop.

Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any other changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus any applicable fees set you by the cruise line.


Passengers who will be pregnant during their cruise are required to supply a physicians ‘fit to travel’ note, including your estimated due date, prior to embarkation. We are unable to accept any passengers who will have entered their 24th week or later of pregnancy, by the end of the cruise.

Minimum age to travel

To ensure there is suitable supervision, there needs to be at least one passenger 18 years or older in each cabin. However, to accommodate families cruising together, children may occupy a separate cabin to their parent/legal guardian, providing one child is 16 years or over.

For cruises departing from an Australian port between 1 November and 7 January, any passenger under 19 years of age on the day they board the cruise, must travel in the same cabin as a responsible adult 19 years or older. In addition, from 8 January to 31 January, there is a limit on the number of passengers under 19 years of age who can travel unaccompanied. Once the limit is reached, a responsible adult 19 years or older must travel in the same cabin. We can advise you at the time of booking whether the limit applies to your booking. The responsible adult is accountable for passengers under 19 years of age in their cabin for the duration of the cruise, and the ‘Rights of the Captain’ will be applied to anyone who displays disruptive behaviour.

Due to limited neo-natal facilities onboard and at the destinations we visit, the following minimum ages apply-
Australia and New Zealand Domestic (Coastal cruises): 6 Months

All other Itineraries: 12 months

In addition, children under three (3) years must remain with their parent/legal guardian at all times.

Children & Teenagers

For the safety and enjoyment of all on board, there are limits on the number of children and teenagers that can be carried within different age groups. The age of the passenger on the day they board the cruise, is the age we use for the entire holiday. We can advise you at the time of booking whether we are able to accept bookings for children on the cruise you have chosen.

Parents/Legal guardians are responsible for children and teenagers at all times. If a child or teenager displays dangerous or disruptive behaviour, the ‘Rights of the Captain’ will be applied to both parent/legal guardian and child/teenager.

Children’s access to pools and spas may be restricted and adult supervision is required.

Children's Centres

Children less than two (2) years of age are welcome to use the Children’s Centre facilities under the direct supervision of their parent/legal guardian. To attend the Children’s Centres without a parent/legal guardian, children need to be two (2) years of age or over and toilet trained.

Use of the Children’s Centres requires daily registration and entry is on a first-come-first-served basis as places are limited. Group child minding for children 2-12 years is available between 10.30pm and 1am only for a fee.

Requirements to Travel

Passports, visas and vaccinations are your responsibility.

Without the necessary passport, visas and/or vaccinations, local authorities may deny you boarding, prevent you from going ashore, issue a fine or deny the ship entry into the port.

For international cruises (cruises that visit a foreign port), passports are required for all passengers and must be valid for a minimum of six (6) months beyond the date of the cruise return. In addition, travel on our cruises will not revalidate an Australian or New Zealand re-entry visa.

For domestic cruises (cruises that do not visit a foreign port), a valid passport or government issued photo identification is required (Queensland Proof of Age cards will not be accepted). For Australian passengers, a current Medicare card can be used for passengers under 18 years of age. For New Zealand passengers, an original or certified copy of the child’s birth certificate or a school pass with photo will be accepted.

Drinking and Gambling

The minimum age for drinking and gambling is 18 years. Guests under the age of 18 years will not be permitted in the Casino at any time, or in the night club after 10.30pm.

P&O Cruises are commited to the responsible service of alcohol. There may be times when we consider it appropriate to refuse the service of alcohol to a guest for any reason. As part of our commitmnt to the responsible service of alcohol and to ensure the safety and security of guests and crew, guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages onboard.

In addition, for cruises departing on or after 1 November 2014, the following restrictions apply to non alcoholic beverages being brought onboard:

  • Plastic or glass bottled soft drinks (including water) and slab packs of canned soft drinks are not permitted to be brought onboard.
  • Each guest can bring onboard a maximum of 12 cans of soft drink loosely packed.

Please note all luggage, including hand and check-in, will be x-rayed at embarkation.

Any alcohol purchased ashore will be collected at the gangway for safe keeping and will be returned to you on the last day of your cruise.

Your Health

We care about the health and safety of our passengers. To assist, please advise us at the time of booking if you have any condition that requires medical attention, medication or special treatment. We may also ask you to complete a health questionnaire.

If a passenger has a condition that we decide may seriously affect the enjoyment, health or safety of themselves or any other person on board, we can refuse or cancel a booking, where necessary. We will give reasonable consideration when reaching this decision and will advise you as soon as possible. Provided you have given us all relevant information about the condition that we require when requested, you will be entitled to a full refund if we cancel your booking on the basis of this condition.

Passengers that need assistance should always be accompanied by a carer to help with day to day activities as our crew and medical staff are unable to act as personal carers.

On board Medical Centre

Each ship has a Medical Centre that is staffed by registered doctors and nurses, who are available during scheduled clinic times to provide medical care for everyone on board. They are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for medical emergencies. Our Medical Centre is only for medical needs arising on board and cannot cater for treatments that you know you will require while on holiday.

We are not a healthcare provider and may not be held liable for the sickness, injury or death of any passenger arising from any advice, treatment, care, services or any omission by medical staff. These medical providers exercise their own medical judgement and expertise.

On board Medical Charges

All cruises on our ships are outside the scope of Australian Medicare, New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) and private health insurance. Consultations, treatments and medication are charged at private rates and must be paid by you and claimed through your travel insurance.

Ship & Itinerary Changes

We will do everything we reasonably can to make sure everything goes according to plan; however, sometimes changes can happen that may affect your holiday experience. This could include weather, mechanical difficulties, civil unrest or any other unforeseen circumstances.

In addition, we may charter all or part of the ship, or remove the ship from service where this becomes necessary. We may change the itinerary, ship or cancel the cruise due to operational or commercial requirements.

We will notify you of these changes as soon as we can. Where we cancel a cruise or make a significant change to the ports in your itinerary prior to departure, you will have the choice of:

  1. the new itinerary;

  2. transferring all monies paid to an alternative cruise of comparable standard, if available; or

  3. cancelling the cruise for a full refund of your fare paid.

Once your cruise has commenced, if we are required to change the itinerary or cancel the cruise due to safety, maritime law, severe weather or to protect human life or health, we are not required to provide any compensation unless consumer laws provide otherwise. With this in mind, please do not make any important arrangements or meetings based on the proposed itinerary.

Rights of the Captain

If a passenger seriously affects the safety, well-being or enjoyment of themselves or any other person on board, the Captain has the right to confine, sedate or disembark the passenger. In such cases, we are not responsible for any expenses including your return home. In addition, you will not be entitled to any refunds. While the Captain will always act reasonably in these circumstances, you accept that the safety, well-being and enjoyment of everyone on board, comes first.

Leaving the cruise early

If you are required, or choose, to leave the cruise for any reason (unless caused by our proven negligence or failure to provide services with due care and skill and that are reasonably fit for purpose), we are not responsible for any expenses, including your return home. This also applies if you do not return to the ship in time for sailing after a port visit. If we assist with any costs, you will need to repay us on your return. In addition, you will not be entitled to any refunds.

Legal Matters

In the unlikely event you have reason to take legal action, you agree to use all reasonable efforts to bring the issue to our attention as soon as possible.

This contract is governed by the laws in force in New South Wales. You agree that any action you bring against us will be brought in New South Wales.

If you have a claim against us, you agree only to bring action against us and not any of our related bodies corporate as defined in the Corporations Act 2001(Cth).
