Onboard Pacific Adventure as she prepares for her maiden voyage

P&O Cruises Australia today shared a behind-the-scenes tour of its newest grandclass ship, Pacific Adventure, in anticipation of her much awaited first guest cruise – a round-trip three-night itinerary from Sydney departing this Saturday, 22 October. The newly transformed ship is the cruise line’s third and final ship to join its fleet and will be homeported in Sydney year-round.
