P&O is looking for a tiny cruising critic.
Know someone 15 years or under with a passion for cruising? P&O Cruises is looking for an adventure-loving holiday critic to advise on the final touches to its latest ship, Pacific Explorer.
The selected critic will join three other young explorers to provide input on the activities, food, entertainment and design of the 77,000-tonne ship which will sail on its first cruise from Sydney on June 22.
Families are invited to nominate an adventurous child willing to give anything a go, from walking the plank to zipping down the longest and wildest waterslides on an Australian ship.
“Our four Young Explorers will be involved in shaping the culinary offering, entertainment and design onboard our latest addition. Their opinions and advice will refine the details of Pacific Explorer to help ensure it is the best cruise ship for this market – and maybe bring out the inner kid in all of us too,” P&O Cruises director of entertainment Brett Annable said.
Top of the list will be having input on the final exciting touches to the waterpark, taste testing key dishes on the menu, reviewing live entertainment and selecting decor.
Families that know of a potential candidate can submit a photo and 100 words or less at pocruises.com.au/young-explorers explaining why their child would be the perfect holiday critic.
The winner will help P&O finesse Pacific Explorer’s details, feature in a P&O campaign and will enjoy a cruise with their family aboard the ship.
