A LOVE of cruising developed into true love for Nicole Tucker, the groups and marketing leader at Harvey World Travel in the western Sydney suburb of Blacktown, and her husband Wayne. P&O Cruises will always have a soft spot in their hearts, with the line having played a prominent role in three of the couple’s most significant life moments. For it was, back in 2003, that the pair first met while aboard the line’s Pacific Sky vessel while cruising the Pacific Islands – true love was born. “I was with my sister, a cousin and girlfriend and on the first night of the cruise we met Wayne and his friends,” Nicole recalls. “Wayne invited me on one of the day tours to Amedee Island in Noumea and we just spent a lovely day together”. The next step in their relationship came four years later, when Wayne dropped to one knee and popped the question to Nicole, this time while aboard P&O’s Pacific Dawn. Completing the trifecta, the couple celebrated the 10th anniversary of their meeting this year aboard Pacific Pearl, enjoying a romantic lunch at Luke Mangan’s onboard Salt Grill restaurant. From here, the pair will soon introduce their two boys Hugh and Dylan to cruising, which is sure to become a new love for the family.
