Sail away on the Inaugural Rainbow Group Holiday

7 Night Pacific Island Hopper
Departing brisbane 27 August 2022

We are excited to announce the launch of the inaugural Rainbow Group Holiday supported by Qnews and P&O Cruises Australia. 

Join local favourites Wanda Dparke, Candy Surprise, Crystal Heart and Martini Ice for fun and relaxation and be a part of a large LGBTI group aboard P&O Pacific Encounter.  This is your holiday to explore Noumea and Port Vila and we want to make it extra special.  Bring your resort clothes, frocks, feathers and fabulousness onboard and be ready to party on the high seas.

Customised activities and entertainment has been curated to cater to our diverse community.  Chill by the pool with a bear, zipline in leather or embrace your inner geek with a boardgame.  There is something for everyone and do as much or as little as you like.

All fare types include your chosen cabin, P&O’s signature onboard entertainment, and meals.  Drinks, Speciality Dining and Shore Tours are extra.  Your OUTpass* will grant access to the exclusive LGBTI program in addition to P&O’s legendary inclusions.  Talk to one of the sponsor agents to book your cabin.
