Pacific Dawn Makeover Begins

P&O Cruises’ Pacific Dawn has begun a multi-million dollar transformation in Singapore which will include the installation of two spectacular waterslides on her top decks.


Over the coming days, the ship will be fitted with a range of new features including a state-of-the-art waterpark and the addition of The Pantry, an international market place of fresh food outlets which will replace the traditional ship buffet.  Among its features will be a new Mediterranean-inspired offering called Nic and Toni’s and a new seafood restaurant, Shell & Bones.


Several of Pacific Dawn’s public spaces – including the atrium, Charlie’s cafe, The Orient and the Promenade Bar – will also be redesigned to mirror the striking contemporary look which has become a trademark of the P&O fleet in recent years.


The refit comes as P&O prepares for its biggest year of Queensland cruising, with two ships sailing from Brisbane year round. Between them, Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria will offer a record 108 cruises to holidaymakers this year, up from 98 cruises in 2016.


Pacific Dawn will set sail from Singapore on March 2, arriving in Brisbane with her new features on March 16.
