P&O Cruises’ Pacific Dawn has begun a multi-million dollar transformation in Singapore which will include the installation of two waterslides on her top decks.
Over the coming days, the ship will be fitted with a range of new features including a waterpark and international food marketplace outlets The Pantry.
Among its features will be a new Mediterranean-inspired offering called Nic and Toni’s and a new seafood restaurant, Shell & Bones. Several of Pacific Dawn’s public spaces – including the atrium, Charlie’s cafe, The Orient and the Promenade Bar – will also be renovated.
The refit comes as P&O prepares for its biggest year of Queensland cruising, with two ships sailing from Brisbane year round. Between them, Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria will offer 108 cruises to holidaymakers this year, up from 98 cruises in 2016.
Pacific Dawn will set sail from Singapore on 2 March, arriving in Brisbane with her new features on 16 March. Fares on the refurbished ship include a seven-night Pacific Island Hopper departing Brisbane on 1 April 2017 starting from $749* per person quad share.
