Where she sails
Pacific Pearl sails out of Sydney and Auckland. From Sydney 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 2015. A 13-night cruise each November circumnavigates New Zealand. The Melbourne Cup cruise every November stays two nights in Melbourne. In April/May each year, when sailing from Auckland, visit the Pacific islands to the north, or head south around New Zealand’s three islands. Pacific Pearl’s latest refit was in 2012, and at 63,786 GT she carries 1364 passengers.

Pacific Pearl — Ship Review Rating: 4.2 out of 5 based on 57 ratings.

Life aboard Pacific Pearl
In the growing Australian market Pacific Pearl’s standard of cuisine, restaurants, public spaces and leisure activities maintains its excellence. She is ideally suited to young couples, singles of all ages and families, with plenty of open deck space, two large pools, wading pool, and extensive child and teenager facilities including indoor/outdoor play areas located aft. 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. The crew, service, food and entertainment receive strong reviews from guests. P&O cruises offer relaxation with a touch of luxury, aimed at middle Australia. Gratuities are included in the fare. The ship also handles conferences and weddings, and caters for wheelchair accessibility.

Accommodation
Staterooms come in four categories – Mini-Suite with balcony, Outside with balcony, Outside and Inside – and 14 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 36 Mini Suites and 28 Outside staterooms come with balconies. The Mini-Suites come with upgraded bathrooms and a range of extras, and can also accommodate three or four. Check out whether the deck 11 suites allow for night-time quietness. Note that room-service meals come at extra charge. Ten cabins are wheelchair accessible. Cots are available for children under three years.

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 Waterfront Restaurant. Plantation buffet restaurant is high up on the ship with great sea views. Expect big ship banquet catering, and tables cater for four, six or eight. The décor is bright and extremely colourful and bright. Dress up for the formal dinner/s. At night Plantation serves Asian and Oriental themed buffets. For its other specialty (pay extra) restaurant, 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.

Pacific Pearl’s recent refurbishment added a New Zealand Ice-cream Parlour, for everyone’s liking (and licking). There’s also an outdoor BBQ for lunch and dinner on the pool deck. Food is modern British with a touch of Mediterranean. Vegetarian and kids’ dishes are always available. The crew have a name for friendliness and the food selection is plentiful and varied. Themed bars and lounges are aplenty.

Entertainment
The main attraction is the well-selected ports of call. On sea days there’s plenty of activity day and night to keep you entertained. The two-deck Marquee Theatre is the venue for production shows and major cabaret acts. 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. The shopping arcade offers fine jewellery, crystal, perfumes and fashion apparel. The top deck has as a big-screen for day and night entertainment.

By day guests can join in a variety of organised activities, including hosted deck games and a great range of activity classes. The sun deck has two pools complete with lounges. On a lower deck is the ocean-view Aqua Health, Spa and Fitness centre and Gym. 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.
