P&O Cruises Australia has just named its newest and first Grand Class ship to join the cruise line’s family in late 2020.
The company’s nearly 600,000 strong Facebook community were asked to guess the name of the new ship, and six people were spot on, answering…
Drum roll please?
Continuing on with the fleets transformation, the new build is set to represent the adventurous spirit behind Pacific Explorer’s name and will build on the fresh and contemporary design of her sister.
The 3100-guest ship will offer an array of dining experiences including exciting concepts from Australian chef and restaurateur Luke Mangan and award-winning Melbourne chef Johnny Di Francesco.
Taking relaxation to a whole new level, Pacific Adventure will sport a sprawling child-free Oasis retreat across multiple decks, offering sun lounges, spa tubs, a swimming pool and dedicated bar.
The Blue Room also returns as a live-music venue with sumptuous soft furnishings for guests to sit back and enjoy live blues, soul and R&B.
With an expanded range of cabin options including 560 balcony rooms, 230 suites and mini-suites and the fleet’s first 5-berth family cabins, the ship will offer something for everyone.
P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said the brand is primed to keep transforming the fleet with the arrival of Pacific Adventure in 2020.
“We’re thrilled to have another ship on the horizon that will continue the exciting evolution of our modern Australian cruise product,” Myrmell said.
“We have grand plans for Pacific Adventure and we can’t wait to take our guests on unforgettable adventures across Australia and the South Pacific.”
The 108,865-tonne ship, currently sailing as Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess, is scheduled to enter the P&O fleet in October 2020. The first program featuring Pacific Adventure will go on sale next month and include sailings through to the end of 2020.
Continuing the ongoing evolution of the P&O Cruises fleet, Pacific Adventure will be joined by Grand Class sister ship Star Princess at the end of 2021.
