Pacific Explorer 2021 Cruises from Auckland – $1pp Deposits PLUS Free Stuff!

With New Zealand now in Level One, it seems our minds have turned to the Future! P&O have a perfectly timed “Future You” Promotion released today which is loaded with Free Stuff!, Low Deposits and a fabulous peace of mind guarantee.

Lets take a look at The Future You Sale and see what is on offer for Kiwis ready to book their 2021 getaway.

$1 Per person deposits!
When talking to many customers about 2021 the main feedback to our HOOT Cruises team was around deposit commitments. Customers didn’t want to have to commit large deposits up front, until they could see how the world would change, once borders start to re-open.

A staggered deposit system with just $1 per person deposit upfront addresses this concern. The remainder of the standard adult deposit amount for all passengers, including children is then due as follows – for cruises departing between 1 Mar 2021 and 31 May 2021, 95 days prior to departure; for cruises departing between 1 Jun 2021 and 31 Aug 2021, 150 days prior to departure; and for cruises departing after 1 Sep 2021, 180 days prior to departure. Book by 25 August 2020

Peace of Mind! Guests booked on the Value Fare or Value Plus Fare can cancel their booking up to 6 months prior to the cruise departure and receive a full refund (excluding $1 deposits).

PLUS: Free Holiday Spending Money!
No this isn’t too good to be true! If you book a Value or Value Plus fare you will also receive a generous OnBoard Spending Money. This can be used during your holiday for OnBoard drinks, Specialty dining, Spa & salon treatments, or towards optional shore excursions.
