The company expects a record number of families and family groups to sail in Pacific Adventure, currently Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess, with the biggest ever choice of school holiday itineraries and cabin configurations.
Star attractions for families will be Adventure’s dual-racing waterslide — the Twin Racer — and the P&O Edge Adventure Park with a flying fox on the top deck and a rock-climbing wall with panoramic views.
Pacific Adventure has the greatest choice of accommodation in P&O’s history with new five berth family cabins and a record number of interconnecting rooms.
It also will be first in the market to offer two-bedroom family suites that sleep up to eight.
