P&O Cruises Australia has launched its first onboard app allowing guests to plan their activities, make bookings and share experiences in real time throughout their cruise.

Available free on personal devices when connected to P&O Cruises' Wi-Fi, the WhatsOn app provides a new way for travelers to stay in touch during their trip.

The app allows families and friends traveling together to send messages to one another, check in and ‘like' locations as well as recommend activities.

Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

May 21-23, 2019 | Reunion | Kissimmee, FL

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

Guests can also book shore tours with a few clicks, check their onboard account, view special promotions available across the ship and keep up to date with the latest news from around the world.

With the app also providing the daily schedule of activities for the entire cruise, guests can book their preferred activities online and create a wish list for each day.

The app launched across most of the fleet last week, with Pacific Aria set to come online later this week.

The cruise line is also rolling out new cash kiosks which will allow guests to transfer money onto their cruise card without needing to line up at the front desk.
