A Photographic History of P&O Cruises, Paperback / softback Book

A Photographic History of P&O Cruises Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


One of the world’s most loved cruise lines, P&O Cruises can trace its history back over 180 years.

Through an impressive and unique collection of imagery, this new and updated edition of A Photographic History of P&O Cruises details the history of the cruise line and explores the impact the company had in shaping the British Empire. With a vast fleet of ocean liners that undertook voyages to all parts 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, the venerable company reorganised its services to offer pleasure cruises.

In Australia, P&O held a near monopoly during the 1980s and ’90s, with their ships Oriana and Fairstar. Today, as part of the giant Carnival Corporation, P&O Cruises remains an iconic brand, offering British-based cruises, world voyages and a specialist Australian subsidiary that sails into the South Pacific.
