P&O Cruises has re­leased fur­ther de­tails of its 2020 cruise pro­gram ( CW Thu), re­veal­ing

Pa­cific Ex­plorer will make Bris­bane her new home­port from Oct 2020.

Pa­cific Ex­plorer’s first round-trip cruise from Bris­bane will be the seven-night Pa­cific Is­land Hop­per itin­er­ary de­part­ing on 24 Oct 2020, fol­lowed by a seven-night Main Event themed cruise to the Mel­bourne Cup.

P&O Cruises Aus­tralia Pres­i­dent Sture Myrmell said Pa­cific Ex­plorer’s move would pro­vide Queens­lan­ders with ac­cess to new on­board ac­tiv­i­ties.

“We are pleased to soon of­fer Bris­bane guests our flag­ship Pa­cific Ex­plorer and the chance to en­joy the fea­tures that this ship brings in­clud­ing two new ‘fast­ca­sual’ din­ing op­tions: Luke’s, a pool­side grill by Aus­tralian chef and restau­ra­teur Luke Man­gan, and 400 Gradi, a tra­di­tional Neapoli­tan pizze­ria by award­win­ning Mel­bourne chef Johnny Di Francesco,” Myrmell said.

Pa­cific Ex­plorer will re­place Pa­cific Dawn, which has been sail­ing from the Queens­land cap­i­tal since Dec 2009.

From the end of Oct 2020, Dawn will be based in Mel­bourne, of­fer­ing a new 14-night Fiji Ex­plorer itin­er­ary with calls to Noumea, Suva, Port De­na­rau, Mys­tery Is­land & Isle of Pines.

The 2020 sea­son will also see Pa­cific Aria re­po­si­tion to Auck­land on a six-night one-way cruise from Ade­laide in Apr 2020.

P&O Cruises’ 2020 pro­gram will go on sale on 23 Oct.
