Stamps issued to celebrate P&O Cruises' return to Norfolk Island

Date Posted: 01 Apr 2010
Category:
Norfolk Island has welcomed the return of P&O Cruises with the launch of a special set of commemorative stamps.

Widely-regarded as one of the true unspoilt paradises of the Pacific, Norfolk Island is known for its stunning scenery and, in particular, its pine forests.

However, the cruise liner has now landed there for almost 80 years, meaning that the news that it is to offer the island as a destination on its Pacific cruises has been widely welcomed, with the launch of the new stamp collection testament to this.

The stamps, which have been limited to a print run of just 20,000, feature images of P&O cruise ships both past and present, with Carnival Australia senior vice president Jenny Lourey suggesting that they are likely to be a hit with passengers and crew members alike.

"Norfolk Island is such a unique destination, we're sure its many natural and historical attractions will be a hit with our passengers," she added.

Captain James Cook is the first-known European to have spotted Norfolk Island on his second voyage to the South Pacific in 1774.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
