P&O Unveil Exciting New Features for Pacific Explorer


P&O have released more details of the exciting new features holidaymakers can expect when the Pacific Explorer debuts next year following an extensive refurbishment.

The Pacific Explorer (currently sailing as the Dawn Princess) will be redesigned to reflect the best of modern Australia and promises to be packed full of surprises and fun. It will include P&O’s first ever waterpark at sea, which will include two breathtaking waterslide experiences, one with LED lights and sound effects and the second featuring exhilarating twists and turns.

Built for adventure

The waterpark is sure to be a hit with adventurous holidaymakers, and will include a shaded area for kids, giant water dumping bucket and oversized water toys. The popular P&O Edge Adventure Park will feature plenty of activities to keep kids entertained throughout their stay. However, those in need of a more relaxed will be able to unwind on the chilled barefoot bowls green on the back deck.

Modern cruising

Announcing details of the refurbishment, P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said Pacific Explorer’s décor would reflect modern Australia, combining elegance with relaxed comfort to create the striking contemporary look which has become a trademark of the P&O fleet.

“We’ve taken the winning features of our existing ships, then added a whole new layer of excitement with some big wow moments like the waterslides as well as new concepts like the bowling green and a stunning hidden bar, which we think will put a smile on our guests’ faces. It really will be a ship that offers something for everyone,” Myrmell explained.

Pacific Explorer will undergo a comprehensive makeover in May and June of 2017.
