P & O put on three new cruises to Eden to support the bushfire recovery. 2SEA was there!

Last Friday 2SEA’s Trish and Henry Jones were in attendance when P&O Cruises  announced it is adding three more cruise calls to Eden this season as Pacific Aria became the first Carnival Australia-brand cruise ship to return to the Sapphire Coast following the bushfire emergency.

Pacific Explorer will make the three calls on March 29, May 10 and May 16 representing an additional 6000 guests to help boost the region’s economic recovery sending a message that Eden and the Sapphire Coast are open for business.

The three calls represent a significant increase in cruise visits due to some visits being unable to do so due to the bushfire crisis. (See list below of Carnival Australia-brand ship calls in 2020).

“The people of Eden and surrounding communities have endured a terrible period

with the impact of the bushfires,” said Sture Myrmell, President of Carnival Australia and P&O Cruises Australia.
“Pacific Aria’s arrival today sends a powerful message that the local community is resilient, courageous and ready to welcome visitors.
