February 2017 will see P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Dawn enter dry dock and renovation work will begin to rejuvenate the ship.
Features such as kids only water-park, two water-slides, the Pantry Food Court and also a revitalised Dome Nightclub will be added to the ship as the cruise line look to reinvent their brand image.
In a twist to the traditional buffet style restaurant, the Pantry Food Court will offer nine outlets including a Mediterranean style eatery called Nic and Toni’s.
A rejuvenated pool area will also see a burger grill added where a whole host of burgers and snacks can be found.
It is anticipated that the ship will have the features added by the time the refit is finished and cruises begin sailing in March 2017.
It’s a big year for P&O Cruises Australia in Queensland with P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell stating the refurbishment will kick off an exciting period of time.
“With the new waterpark, dining options and a refreshed interior design, we’re creating a great new look for Pacific Dawn which will combine some fun innovations with the winning features of our existing ships,”
“There’s no question that Queenslanders love holidaying at sea with P&O, so we’re very excited that our Brisbane guests will soon be able to enjoy a stylish new-look Pacific Dawn as part of their cruise holiday experience, alongside one of our latest ships, the Pacific Aria.”
June 2017 will also see the former Dawn Princess, Pacific Explorer, join the P&O Cruises Australia fleet and will also undergo a multi million refit in order to customise the ship to the line’s modern vision.
