P&O embarks on Pacific Adventure
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”.
