Where she sails
P&O Cruises Australia operates the Pacific Dawn out of Brisbane, Australia. Most of her cruises are 7-night sailings to the South Pacific (New Caledonia and Vanuatu), and the Great Barrier Reef (Whitsundays, Airlie Beach, Cairns, Port Douglas and Willis Island in the Coral Sea). Venture further to the South Pacific over 9 or 12 nights. Already been there? Take one of the new PNG cruises over 10 or 14 nights. These are new itineraries, and introduce you to remnants of WWII history and the present-day culture of PNG’s islands. If you’re unsure how you will handle sea life, try a 3- or 4-night ‘Lifestyle Cruise’ to Airlie Beach or the Hunter Valley. A 7-night Melbourne Cup cruise beckons 31 October 2015, with 2 full days and an overnight stay. Pacific Dawn was most recently refurbished in April 2012, and at 70,310 GT carries 2020 passengers.

Pacific Dawn — Ship Review Rating: 4.2 out of 5 based on 110 ratings.

Life aboard Pacific Dawn
P&O cruises offer relaxation with a touch of luxury, good food and entertainment on the high seas, aimed at middle Australia. Many cabins now have interconnecting rooms to benefit families. Relax on your deckchair day and night, and take in karaoke performances and latest release movies on the giant LED entertainment screen overlooking the pool. Children have their own facilities and areas, and there is an evening child-minding service. La Luna Pan-Asia Restaurant has a more intimate look, and the Mix Cocktail Bar and Charlie’s Café have been transformed. Only a few years earlier multi-million dollar additions included the Salt Grill by Luke Mangan and a new child-free Oasis retreat. The crew, service, food and entertainment receive strong reviews from guests. Gratuities are included in the fare. The ship also handles conferences and weddings, and caters for wheelchair accessibility.

Accommodation
Staterooms come in five categories – Suite with balcony, Mini-Suite with balcony, Outside with balcony, Outside and Inside – and 24 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, bathrobes and toiletries, 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). Interconnecting cabins for families and groups allow quad-quad, twin-quad, triple-triple, and twin-twin bedding.

On the upper decks 14 Suites, 36 Mini Suites, and 134 Outside staterooms come with balconies. The Suites for up to four guests have a generous ensuite with bathtub, walk-in wardrobe, an entertainment area, extended balcony, Nespresso machine, and priority embarking and disembarking. The Mini-Suites come with upgraded bathrooms and a range of extras, and can accommodate three. Check out whether the deck 11 suites allow for night-time quietness. Note that room-service meals come at extra charge. Six cabins are wheelchair accessible. Cots are available for children under three years.

Food and Dining
Dining-wise, there are four eateries onboard Pacific Dawn. Dining is where and when you like: “Your Choice Dining” at the main The Waterfront Restaurant or the buffet Plantation Restaurant. Expect big ship banquet catering. The décor is bright and very colourful. Dress up for the formal dinner/s. There are two alternative (pay extra) restaurants. The line has recruited its first ever celebrity chef, Luke Mangan, who has added his touches to the menu in the Salt Grill restaurant, a steak and seafood venue. La Luna is a casual restaurant serving Asian-style cuisine. The crew have a name for friendliness and the food selection is plentiful and varied.

Entertainment
The main attraction is sailing to the South Pacific or the tropics of the Great Barrier Reef! You will have two to five sea days, and 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. P&OEdge arrives sometime in 2014, a floating adventure playground for children to adults. It will offer 20 activities, including high rope swings, laser tag, slack lines, Segway obstacle courses, flying fox lines, funnel climbs and many more designed around the ship’s existing architecture. Other entertainment includes laser light shows in the Atrium, circus and acrobat performances, game shows, adults-only Sit Down Comedy Club, and 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. Two aft decks offer an adults-only Oasis spa area, complete with wicker beds, lounges, ottomans and a new whirlpool. There is a small Aqua Health, Spa and Fitness. The Children’s Centres that cater for ages 3 to 10 years is situated at the rear of the top deck. HQ and HQ+ are hangouts for 11 to 17 year olds. Leisure spaces include jogging track, whirlpool spas, library, medical centre, gym and health spa. The shopping arcade offers fine jewellery, crystal, perfumes and fashion apparel.

Sandra F from Brisbane


"Service was exceptional and your consultant went out of her way to answer all my questions. I called about 10 different local agents (I live in Melbourne) and no one would match your prices. Your deal is amazing."
