P&O is adding an intriguing activity to its Australian-based ships. No kidding, it is called ‘Titanic Moment’. But it won’t have anything to do with sinking the ship in icy waters. Passengers will simply have the chance to go out on the bow (usually out of bounds on P&O) and re-enact that iconic movie scene where Leo and Kate…I mean, Jack and Rose…stand on the bow, arms outstretched, sailing into the sunset.
Another cool new thing to try is climbing up the ship’s funnel. Makes other rock-climbing walls seem a little dull in comparison. Personally I’ve never seen the appeal of climbing up a wall. There’s an elevator, people!
These are just two of the options on the way for adventurous cruisers. It hasn’t been officially announced yet, but I got all the info from Carnival Australia’s conference held aboard Pacific Pearl over the weekend. Full details of the program, ‘P&O Edge’, will be unveiled in October.
An Adventure Park is also to be installed on deck 15, equipped with a flying fox/zip line and a Segway obstacle course. And in the circus rig on Pearl and Jewel, passengers can try walking the tightrope or performing a ‘leap of faith’.
If I had my way, I’d tweak it a bit…. I’m calling it P&O Edgy.
Instead of doing Leo and Kate on the bow, how about Leo and Kate in that sex scene in the steamed-up car?
Instead of climbing up the funnel, let’s bungy-jump off it.
Instead of circus acts, bring out the circus freaks.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a highlight from P&O’s adults-only comedy show. Warning: involves cougars.
