Introducing Pacific Adventure

The countdown is on until P&O Australia welcomes the next addition to its fleet — and now the cruise line has revealed the first details about its biggest ship ever. We’re thrilled to announce P&O’s newest and largest ship, Pacific Adventure – it will join the family in October 2020 which is incredibly exciting!

The 3,100 guest ship will sail from Sydney and offers an expanded range of cabin options, a large range of P&O signature features as well as a host of new ones that guests will love.


The new ship, now cruising for Princess Cruises and known as Golden Princess will undergo an extensive refurbishment to suit the needs of Australian cruisers before arriving downunder.

The 108,865-tonne ship will be the first of its kind for P&O Australia — the pioneer of what the cruise line has revealed will be known as its “Grand Class” — and will become the biggest ship ever to join the fleet.

So what can cruisers expect on board Pacific Adventure? For starters, there’ll be an array of dining experiences including exciting concepts from celebrity chef Luke Mangan and award-winning Melbourne pizza chef Johnny Di Francesco.

Mangan’s Salt Grill has been a P&O mainstay since the Sydney-based chef partnered with the cruise line in 2010, while Johnny Di Francesco’s 400 Gradi launched on board Pacific Explorer in 2017.

There will also be a “sprawling child-free Oasis retreat” spanning multiple decks, offering sun lounges, spa tubs, a swimming pool and dedicated bar.

Although the interior and deck designs are yet to be finalised, the ship is tipped to follow the sleek Scandi-inspired style of the more recent makeovers on P&O’s other ships.

While kids aren’t welcome in the Oasis area, families are set to make up a significant portion of cruisers on Pacific Adventure, and larger families will be celebrating the news that the ship will boast five-berth family cabins — a first for the cruise line.

Accommodation options on board include 560 balcony rooms and 230 suites and mini suites.

Entertainment wise, the cruise line has confirmed its Blue Room live music venue, featuring blues, soul and R&B, will feature on board.
