Janene Carleton launches P&OEdge onboard Pacific Jewel

Leading cruise line takes adventure to the edge

AUSTRALIA'S leading cruise line P&O Cruises has launched an adventure program with help from one of Hollywood's most sought after stunt actresses.

Janene Carleton, who has performed stunts for Angelina Jolie, Jessica Biel and Paula Patton, launched P&OEdge onboard Pacific Jewel.

She brought her eight years of stunt double experience to showcase the range of activities available.

The P&OEdge program gives passengers the opportunity to climb, swing, race and jump their way to parts of the ship that have never been seen by other guests.

Some of the activities include high rope swings, laser tag, slack lines, Segway obstacle courses, flying fox lines and funnel climbs.

Janene's film experience is perfectly suited to test out the star of the new activities - The Titanic Moment - which will allow passengers to recreate the classic pose on the bow of the ship, made famous by Kate and Leo in James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster.

"My job as a stunt actress means I'm constantly pushing myself to the limit," Janene Carleton said.

"I love new challenges - so to have the opportunity to bring some of these skills to test out the new P&OEdge program is hugely exciting for me."

The program of activities has been selected to ensure there's something for everyone.

"We're proud to offer passengers the most comprehensive range of onboard adventure activities ever seen in the cruising world," the head of P&O Cruises Ann Sherry said.

"P&OEdge is the first to roll out a fully integrated program - something we're confident our passengers will love."

P&OEdge is currently available on Pacific Jewel cruises, with the program to be rolled out across the P&O fleet in 2014.
