Upgrade to outside cabin for free with P&O Asia cruise


John Crook

Welcome smiles in Tanzania

You may never have thought a visit to Tanzania could be in your travel plans,- that is, until now.  Here's the chance to give something back,- travelling into Africa on one of the two departures each month from January through December 2010.  Based in various locations within Moshi, on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro you get to work a flexible program and engaged in tasks such as teaching English, advising on business initiatives, sports coaching and health awareness.  Priced from $1745 per person for a two week placement, this package includes shared accommodation, breakfasts and dinners, airport pickup on arrival date and support of a local in-country team and 24-hour emergency assistance.  To get all the details to help with your decision making, telephone 134 782 or visit

Rare opportunity

Here's news of a cruise over a month, travelling from Sydney to Singapore, via PNG, Micronesia, Japan, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong and with two full days in Beijing, and of course wonderful Singapore, arriving there on April 15.  There's an enticing bonus by booking an inside cabin and you'll be upgraded free to an outside stateroom with its own private balcony.  Sail aboard Pacific Princess ex Sydney March 14 2010 and over the next 32 nights it's adventure all the way,- but in absolute luxury and comfort.  The price is from $6499 per person twin share.  That includes the upgraded cabin, all onboard gourmet dining, entertainment, port charges and taxes.  OK, so how do we access this tour?  Telephone 1300 369 848 or visit

Tahiti for the kids

And the parents are welcome too! Tahiti's Radisson Plaza Resort now has its own Kids Club, providing all the works for the younger fry whilst at the same time ensuring that Mum and Dad are free to shop, tour or enjoy Tahiti's legendary beaches.    Just a matter of quoting the code 'FAMONO''.  I can't believe the quoted accommodation package price.

Sp, I'm suggesting you check out the details of the offer  for yourself, by visiting or telephoning Tahiti Tourisme on  1300 655 563.  Then get ready for the trip of a lifetime.
