Leading Edge – P & O Cruises offer thrill seekers a cruise of a lifetime

Just when you thought cruise ship innovation couldn’t go much further – think again.

P & O Cruises Australia has just launched “the world’s largest adventure park at sea”.

The P&O Edge programme gives passengers the opportunity to climb, swing, race and jump their way to parts of the ship that have never been seen up close by passengers.

Some of the activities include high rope swings, laser tag, slack lines, Segway obstacle courses, flying fox lines and funnel climbs.

And if you’re a diehard romantic (and brave!) you can even re-enact the ‘Titanic Moment’ on the bow of the ship.

This adrenalin junkie’s dream can be found on P&O’s Pacific Jewel and will be rolled out to Pacific Dawn and Pacific Pearl next year.

At a press conference in Sydney this week, Canadian stuntwoman Janene Carleton, who has doubled for Angelina Jolie in movies, tried out some of the more challenging activities and told the Queensland Times she loves new challenges.

“So to have the opportunity to bring some of these skills to test out the new P&OEdge program is hugely exciting for me.”

The programme of activities has been selected to ensure there’s something for everyone.

“We’re proud to offer passengers the most comprehensive range of onboard adventure activities ever seen in the cruising world,” the head of P&O Cruises Ann Sherry said

“P&OEdge is the first to roll out a fully integrated program – something we’re confident our passengers will love.
