P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Aria has completed a 12-day dry dock in Singapore with new features and furnishings including a new-look Dome venue.
The popular top-deck space with ocean views has been refreshed to take on a contemporary nautical theme with dark blue and white hues, drapes and soft lighting in keeping with the look of the Dome on sister-ship Pacific Eden.
By day, the Dome is an attractive venue for board games, trivia, dance classes and a favourite place for guests to relax on the lounges with a coffee or read a book. In the evening the Dome transforms into a fashionable dance-spot.
The Elemis Spa has also been enhanced during the dry dock and now sports a new Barber Shop. Complete with luxe curtains, gold framed mirrors and a leather swivel chair, the professional grooming service for the modern gentleman offers hot towel shaves, beard trimming and styling.
The ship’s 28 suites, 120 balcony cabins and Penthouse have been fitted with new carpets and outdoor furniture.
Pacific Aria’s finishing touch is the Southern Cross livery emblazoned on her hull - now a signature feature across all five ships in P&O’s fleet.
In total, 1000 pieces of new furniture, 6000 metres of fabric and more than 10,000 square metres of new carpet have been fitted on the 1500-guest ship. A selection of modern and stylish pieces of artwork and new contemporary wallpaper adorns the ship’s public spaces.
Pacific Aria will now return to her Brisbane home-port where she will undertake a range of longer cruises to the South Pacific Islands and shorter breaks closer to home.
