P&O Cruises has announced its latest ship will be called Pacific Explorer and will join the P&O Australia fleet in early 2017.

Continuing the cruise line’s modern Australian evolution, Pacific Explorer will build on the fresh and contemporary design of this year’s newcomers, Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden. The 2000-guest ship will offer an array of dining experiences including Angelo’s Italian, Dragon Lady and Waterfront restaurant which also feature on Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden.

Taking entertainment to a whole new level, Pacific Explorer will feature new and exciting entertainment concepts and spaces which are guaranteed to excite and surprise passengers. The ship will offer more than 400 balcony rooms as well as resort-style pool areas and the incredibly popular dining experience, The Pantry.

P&O Cruises Senior Vice President Sture Myrmell said his team was busy working on the design of the latest member of the fleet.

“Just as we’re preparing to welcome Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden next month, we’re thrilled to have another ship on the horizon that will continue the exciting evolution of our modern Australian cruise product. We have grand plans for Pacific Explorer and we think her new features are going to cause a lot of excitement in the local industry,” Mr Myrmell said.

The 77,000-tonne ship, currently sailing as Princess Cruises’ Dawn Princess, is scheduled to enter the P&O fleet in May 2017 and will sail from Sydney during its inaugural season. The first program featuring Pacific Explorer will be  released early next month.
