When Princess Cruises’ former Star Princess arrived in Singapore for her makeover as P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Encounter, her new nameplates were waiting on the wharf.

The two ‘P&O’ plates, each 20 metres long, eight metres high and weighing three tonnes, will be displayed on the funnel, high above the top deck.

A design and technical team in Singapore will oversee the ship's emergence as Pacific Encounter.

Three mega-ship fleet

Together with Pacific Adventure (formerly Golden Princess) and Pacific Explorer (Dawn Princess), she will make up P&O Cruises Australia’s new three mega-ship fleet over the coming months, with a total capacity of around 9,000 passengers.

Bright future

P&O Cruises Australia President Sture Myrmell said the company’s new fleet signals a bright future for Australia’s home-grown cruise line.

‘We look forward to the restart of cruising and the rebuilding of cruising in our region,’ Myrmell said.
