P&O has exciting prospects on the horizon, with two new ships set to join the fleet at the end of this year. Cruising over from Holland America will be Pacific Aria and the Pacific Eden, currently operating as Ryndam and Statendam.
“Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden represent the next generation of P&O ships inspired by modern Australia. The new onboard features will drastically change the overall look and feel of our ships. It will be a relaxed vibe, casual enough to bring the sand in from the beach but with a touch of sophistication that will feel luxurious and indulgent,” says P&O Cruises senior vice president Sture Myrmell.
