Description

One of the world's most loved cruise lines, P&O Cruises can trace its history back over 175 years. This book follows the history of P&O Cruises and how P&O helped shape the British Empire. With a fleet of liners that undertook voyages to all corners of the globe, P&O was instrumental in immigration to Australia and New Zealand, while acting as a gateway to the Far East and India. After the advent of jet aircraft, this venerable company reorganized their services, offering pleasure cruises. In Australia, P&O held a near monopoly during the 1980s and 1990s with their ship the "Fairstar." Today, part of the giant Carnival Corporation, P&O Cruises has grown, offering British-based cruises, world voyages, and a specialist Australian subsidiary that sails into the South Pacific.
