P&O invented cruising in the mid-1800s and it has been synonymous with the industry ever since, sailing its famous white ships across the seven seas. P&O's first cruise in this region took place from Australia at Christmas 1932 when Strathaird sailed for Norfolk Island with a full and expectant complement of passengers.
