P&O have announced that they will start running cruises from Cairns starting in 2016. We and many of our friends like doing cruises, but living in Port Douglas you need to go to Brisbane, Sydney or Darwin to start your cruise. Travelling to those cities to catch a ship can be an expensive logistic nightmare which is something we will not have to do anymore.
Thank you P&O, this is very welcome news for locals and we are looking forward to it.
