Pacific Pearl Overview

Pacific Pearl is based in Sydney. From there 3 and 4-night cruises head for the Sunshine Coast (Mooloolaba), Moreton Island (for surf and dolphins), or just a theme cruise (Comedy or Food & Wine). Longer 7- to 16-night cruises head for PNG, Pacific islands, and the Great Barrier Reef. There’s a special 16-night Bounty Adventure Cruise in October 2016. The Melbourne Cup cruise departing Sydney 29 October stays two nights in Melbourne. At 63,786 GT she carries 1800 passengers. Pacific Pearl leaves the fleet in April 2017. Her final voyage as part of the P&O fleet will be the 16-day cruise to Singapore departing Auckland on 27 March.


Staterooms come in four categories – Mini-Suite with balcony, Outside with balcony, Outside and Inside – and 22 price levels (higher decks costing more). Many cabins have a third or even a fourth bed available. All cabins are spacious, with wardrobes, ensuites, and twin beds mostly convertible to queen size. Facilities include flat screen TV, fridge, personal safe, and an interactive video system. The décor is neat and attractive. Outside cabins having a large window (or porthole in the case of a few). Twenty interconnecting cabins for families and groups allow quad-quad, twin-quad, triple-triple, and twin-twin bedding.

Food and Dining

Dining-wise, there are four eateries onboard Pacific Pearl. Dining is where and when you like: “Your Choice Dining” at the main The Waterfront Restaurant, or The Pantry, with a contemporary café vibe. Designed as an international food market, it has eight outlets (Hook’s Fish & Chips, Mexicana, The Grill burger bar, Fat Cow Carvery, Curry House, Stix Asian, Coffee Bar and the Sugar Bar dessert station). Expect big ship banquet catering. The décor is bright and very colourful. Dress up for the formal dinner/s. There are three alternative (pay extra) options. The line’s celebrity chef Luke Mangan added his Salt Grill steak and seafood restaurant five years ago, with great success. La Luna is a casual restaurant serving Asian cuisine. For an exceptional evening make a reservation at Chef’s Table, for a tour of the galley and commentary by the Executive Chef.


The main attractions are the destinations: the South Pacific, New Zealand, and southern Australia. During sea days there’s plenty of activity day and night to keep you entertained. The two-deck Marquee Theatre is the main venue for production shows and major cabaret acts. View all the action and latest movies on the Big Screen day and night on the pool deck, and trapeze shows in the evening. Other entertainment includes Laser Light shows in the Atrium, game shows, and adults-only Sit Down Comedy Club. Forward on the top deck is The Dome with dance floor. There are five bars and a casino, much live music and karaoke. By day guests can join in a variety of organised activities such as Bingo. The shopping arcade offers Pandora’s Jewellery, perfumes and fashion apparel.
