Pacific Explorer Overview

Pacific Explorer sails from Sydney until October 2020. Comedy Cruises are 3-night breaks from the office, that offer fun while going nowhere. There are four-night cruises from Sydney to Moreton Bay, 5-nights to Tasmania, and 7-night cruises to Gladstone and the Sunshine Coast. Each year a 6-night cruise departs Sydney for Melbourne to take in the Melbourne Cup, staying two nights. Tickets and transfers to the Cup are included (with option to upgrade to P&O Enclosure). Meanwhile, Pacific Explorer runs cruises of 7 to 16 nights to the South Pacific islands, including Norfolk Island, as well as the popular ports in PNG, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, and Vanuatu. In January 2020 Explorer takes a 14-night cruise to Singapore (for refitting) and returns in February/March. On either voyage there are a few interesting ports in Indonesia and Timor Leste to explore. From November 2020 Explorer departs for its new home base in Brisbane, sailing to PNG, South Pacific islands and the Great Barrier Reef. There’s a Melbourne Cup cruise of 7 nights departing Brisbane 31 October 2020. Cup entrance fees are included, and stay overnight on the ship.


Accommodation includes 410 balcony rooms that include Suites with balcony, Mini-Suites with balcony, and Balcony. Balconies may have either solid steel or toughened glass railings. Also there are 11 grades of Oceanview and Interior staterooms. The recent re-build provides for 22 inter-connecting pairs of cabins for families, and many cabins have a third or 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. Outside cabins have 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.

Food and Dining

Dining-wise, there are multiple eateries onboard Pacific Explorer. Dining is where and when you like: “Your Choice Dining” at two main dining options, the formal Waterfront Restaurant (and dress up for the occasional formal dinner), and the casual Pantry with its contemporary café vibe. Designed as an international food market, The Pantry has nine cuisine selections, the ninth in the evening being Shell & Bones seafood. Also head for Angelo’s for Italian and Dragon Lady for Asian delights. There are four alternative (pay extra) options. The line’s celebrity chef Luke Mangan offers his Salt Grill steak and seafood restaurant., and for an exceptional evening make a reservation at Chef’s Table, which include a tour of the galley and commentary by the Executive Chef. 400 Gradi Pizzeria serves great pizzas at a price.


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. In the evening having two show lounges (both theatre and cabaret style) is a great way to give passengers more entertainment choices. The Love Riot main show attracts an extra charge for cocktail & souvenir glass; more for a degustation dinner. View all the action and latest movies on the Big Screen day and night on the pool deck. Other entertainment includes game shows and the adults-only Sit Down Comedy Club. On the Promenade deck is the dance floor. There are multiple bars and a casino, much live music and karaoke.
