7 Night Pacific Island Hopper


Departs Brisbane 27th August 2022


We are excited to announce our partnership with OUT Exploring and the launch of there inaugural Rainbow Group Holiday supported by Qnews and P&O Cruises Australia.

Join local favourites Wanda Dparke, Candy Surprise and Crystal Heart for fun and relaxation and be a part of a large LGBTI group aboard P&O Pacific Encounter.  This is your holiday to explore Noumea and Port Vila and we want to make it extra special.  Bring your resort clothes, frocks, feathers and fabulousness onboard and be ready to party on the high seas.  Customised entertainment and activities will be announced as we move closer to departure.

All fare types include your chosen cabin, P&O’s signature onboard entertainment, and meals.  Drinks, Speciality Dining and Shore Tours are extra.  Your OUTpass* will include additional customised entertainment and activities during sea days curated by and for our LGBTI contingent.

Explore the sea.

OUTExploring will be a large group of LGBTI passengers aboard this scheduled P&O cruise.  This is not a LGBTI sole use cruise.  To join the group and enjoy exclusive entertainment and activities on top of signature P&O inclusions, your bookings must be made through Barrow & Bear Travel or a sponsor agent.

In addition to your chosen cabin, we will collect $50 per adult and $25 per child for your “OUTpass”.  The “OUTpass” is your ticket to additional customised and specialised entertainment and activities being planned to give you a holiday to remember.  There will also be optional extras, such as Balls Out Bingo and exclusive speciality restaurant lunches with entertainment, which will have an additional charge.

Details will be shared closer to departure.   OUTexploring Social Travel Group aims to keep costs down and add value to your holiday.  The “OUTpass” price is kept low to cover reasonable costs.  The “OUTpass” is refundable up until 181 days to departure.  Talk to your travel agent for all booking terms and conditions.
