P&O em­barks on Pa­cific Ad­ven­ture

Cruise Weekly - - News -

P&O Cruises Aus­tralia has re­vealed it will name its first Grand Class ship Pa­cific Ad­ven­ture ( TD break­ing news).

The ves­sel is cur­rently sail­ing un­der the Princess Cruises brand as Golden Princess and will join the P&O fleet in Oct 2020.

Pa­cific Ad­ven­ture will in­tro­duce the fleet’s first five-berth cab­ins as part of an ex­panded range of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions, which in­cludes 560 bal­cony rooms and 230 suites and mini-suites.

Pa­cific Ad­ven­ture is set to fea­ture a child-free Oa­sis re­treat across mul­ti­ple decks, along with din­ing con­cepts from Aus­tralian chef and restau­ra­teur Luke Man­gan and Mel­bourne chef Johnny Di Francesco.

The Blue Room will re­turn as a live-mu­sic venue play­ing blues, soul and R&B tunes.

The de­but of Pa­cific Ad­ven­ture will be fol­lowed by the in­tro­duc­tion of her Grand Class sis­ter ship, Star Princess, at the end of 2021.

“We’re thrilled to have an­other ship on the hori­zon that will con­tinue the ex­cit­ing evo­lu­tion of our mod­ern Aus­tralian cruise prod­uct,” said P&O Cruises pres­i­dent Sture Myrmell.

The first pro­gram fea­tur­ing the 3,100-pax ves­sel will go on sale next month and in­clude sail­ings through to the end of 2020.

P&O said it asked its nearly 600,000 strong Face­book com­mu­nity to guess the ship’s name and six were “spot on”.
