Article-P&O Australia’s Pacific Adventure emerges from dry dock

Pacific Adventure now sports the company’s distinctive Southern Cross livery
Pacific Adventure, the latest addition to P&O Cruises Australia’s three-ship fleet, has emerged from dry dock at the Fincantieri shipyard in Trieste wearing the company’s Southern Cross livery.

Pacific Adventure, the former Golden Princess, joins Pacific Encounter, formerly Star Princess, and Pacific Explorer, formerly Dawn Princess.

‘Making Pacific Adventure a proud member of the P&O cruising family is the latest exciting stage in our fleet transformation, enabling us to offer our guests even more wonderful ways to holiday at sea,’ President Sture Myrmell said.

‘We can’t wait to show Pacific Adventure off to our guests and to again welcome everyone on board our magnificent three-ship fleet,’ Myrmell added.

Transformed fleet

‘Throughout the pause in operations, we have never lost sight of our ultimate goal of transforming our fleet to continue P&O’s unparalleled leadership of cruising in our region,’ he said. 

He said when cruising is approved to resume, beginning with cruises for vaccinated Australians for visits to Australian ports, the 109,000gt Pacific Adventure will homeport in Sydney.
