P&O Australia Fleet

Built in 1991, Pacific Dawn is one of the cornerstones of P&O Cruise’s prestigious fleet. It has recently undergone a major upgrade which has primarily seen its pool decks and dining experience reimagined, which means that Pacific Dawn is once more setting the standard in Australian cruising.

Pacific Dawn’s newly completed pool area has seen it receive colourful, holiday-esque deck furniture (including hammocks!) and an inviting grassy green floor to lounge on.

When it comes to P&O’s self-styled Food Revolution, we are confident that no passenger will be disappointed! On the Pacific Dawn, P&O has done away with that established tradition which is synonymous with cruise holidays: the cruise buffet. It has introduced an all-American pantry area, fittingly called The Pantry, where you are welcome to serve yourself a thoroughly international mix of food all at once: Asian food, sweet treats, fish and chips and burgers. When it comes to fine dining, there are several speciality restaurants available. Spoil yourself in the sophisticated Waterfront Restaurant, go for a grill, to an Italian, a fish restaurant, or the swanky Dragon Lady Asian restaurant.

For a really special culinary evening, head the Chef’s Table. Here you will start your gourmet adventure with cocktails and canapés hosted by the executive chef before taking an exclusive tour of the galley and view all of its fine wines. Once seated, the executive ehef will introduce each course to you and explain the best wine pairings which could go with it. End your night in style in one of the nine bars and lounges onboard, or catch a live production in the Marquee Theatre.
