P&O Cruises' Pacific Pearl Goes to Napier for the Renowned Art Deco Festival

P&O Cruises' Pacific Pearl Goes to Napier for the Renowned Art Deco Festival
There are already plans for the ship to return next year, with the ship departing from Auckland and arriving in Napier on February 16, 2017, coinciding again with the festival.

Following a devastating earthquake in the 1930's, Napier rebuilt incorporating Classical, Spanish Mission, and Art Deco architecture. The festival attempts to recreate the atmosphere of the period after Napier's reconstruction by encouraging guests to dress in Art Deco-inspired clothing and hosting a variety of events to bring the 1930's to life.

Highlights include:

  • Over 200 events to attend over the weekend such as outdoor concerts, vintage car parades, fashion shows, Great Gatsby-themed picnics and more;

  • Streets known for bringing history to life with their Art Deco inspired designs, making this one of the most unique cities in the world;

  • Deco Spontane will host a new free dance event where Art Deco enthusiasts join local celebrities to learn and perform the Charleston;

  • The Waka Experience, a two hour tour on board the Te Matau a Maui, a traditional Polynesian waka, which will sail through Hawke's Bay giving travelers a unique cultural experience.

Art Deco is one of New Zealand's largest festivals enjoyed by all, and for the first time ever P&O Cruises is offering a cruise that will be stopping in Napier during this famous event.
