Set to join the fleet in late 2020, P&O says Pacific Adventure will build on the adventurous spirit and contemporary design of sister vessel Pacific Explorer. 


With a passenger load of 3,100, the new ship will feature various dining experiences, including concepts by high-profile chef Luke Mangan, a child-free Oasis retreat boasting a pool, spa baths, sun lounges and bar across multiple decks, and The Blue Room live music venue. 


The vessel will also feature more cabin options, including 560 balcony rooms, 230 suites and mini suites and the fleet’s first 5-berth family cabins.    


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


Currently sailing as Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess, Pacific Adventure is due to join the P&O fold in October 2020, with sailings to go on sale next month. 


Six members of P&O’s 600,000 strong Facebook community guessed the correct name. 


What do you think of the name? What would your name have been?
