Dawn Princess Overview

Dawn Princess will transfer to the P&O Australia fleet in May 2017, and after a refit will emerge as P&O’s sixth ship in Australia, Pacific Explorer. Meanwhile, Dawn Princess is based in Sydney and offers a variety of very interesting destinations. Until February 2017 she sails to Tasmania and New Zealand. Guests can board in New Zealand also. On 16 March 2017 a 42-night round-trip from Sydney visits Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan and PNG, for what will be a popular cruise. In April 2017 cruise around the Queensland coast, Arnhem Land and Kimberley coast to Fremantle over 17 nights. Princess Cruises organises on-shore tours which can be booked before sailing or during the cruise. For some voyages pre- and post-cruises tours are available to extend your stay in major ports.


There are six main categories of staterooms - Suites with balcony, Mini-Suites with balcony, Balcony, Premium Oceanview, Oceanview, and Interior – and 28 grades, which give a broad choice according to guests’ needs of space and price. All cabins have pleasing décor and reasonable storage space, satellite TV, refrigerator, and 24-hour room service. Fresh fruit (by request), evening bed turn-down, bathroom lotions, and bathrobes (by request) come with every stateroom. Standard cabins are well-designed and functional. Some cabins accommodate a third and even a fourth person. Generally twin beds can be made up into a queen-size bed. Bedding is top quality. There are no interconnecting or single cabins. There are 19 wheelchair-accessible cabins, and guests with disabilities are well catered for. A complimentary in-cabin dining menu is available 24-hours.

Food and Dining

There are two main dining rooms (no Anytime Dining), and dinner is served in two set seatings in each dining room with the same waitstaff and assigned tables and tablemates. Dress code is smart casual, and on cruises longer than three days dress for a formal night for every week of sailing. Breakfast and lunch are provided in an open seating arrangement. (Of course a continental breakfast can be delivered to your stateroom, and there is a complimentary stateroom menu.) The alternative eating venue is Stirling Steakhouse (extra charge, by reservation) for really good steak and barbecued chicken. A new Italian café Amuleto has been Added. Passengers booked in cabins with balconies can order several special, romantic meals to be served restaurant-style on the verandah - Ultimate Balcony Dining.


In the evening having two show lounges (both theatre and cabaret style) is a great way to give passengers more entertainment choices. During her 2009 refurbishment additions included a Movies Under the Stars screen in the main pool area for new movie releases, sporting events and concert videos. Adults have their own private sunbathing area, the Sanctuary, at the front of the ship. Add seven bars and lounges, nightclub and dance floors, and the casino, to the list of evening options. Alternatively, just stroll around and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café.
