With an impressive and unique collection of photographs and postcards, this new book traces the first 175 years of P&O Cruises. Its vast fleet of ocean liners undertook voyages to all parts of the globe and aided immigration to Australia and New Zealand, while also acting as a gateway to the Far East and India. Now one of the world’s most popular pleasure cruise lines, P&O remains an iconic brand.
After the advent of jet aircraft, the company reorganised their services to offer cruises. In Australia, P&O held a near monopoly in the 1980s and 1990s.
Today, part of the giant Carnival Corporation, P&O Cruises remain an iconic brand, offering British based cruises and an Australian subsidiary that cruises the South Pacific.
Chris Frame and Rachelle Cross have written many successful books on ocean liners and cruise companies for The History Press. Here they are joined by maritime archivists Rob Henderson and Doug Cremer.
This is an excellent book with some superb historical photographs and I would very highly recommend it.
