Australia’s latest ship, P&O Cruises’ Pacific Eden, departed on her maiden voyage, after debuting on the weekend in Fremantle.

Heralded as a "game changer" for Australian cruise industry, the 55,820-ton Pacific Eden boasts a stunning design, reflecting the contemporary style of modern Australia.

The ship’s features include 15 dining options, luxe new bars, a resort-style pool deck, a child-free Oasis with private cabanas, a plush private dining room and some of the most spacious rooms across the fleet.

Pacific Eden left Fremantle on Sunday afternoon and will call at Esperance today ahead of her maiden visits to Adelaide (Friday, November 20), Kangaroo Island (Saturday, November 21) and Melbourne (Monday, November 23) en route to Sydney.

Pacific Eden will be christened by actress Kate Ritchie in a dual naming ceremony on Sydney Harbour on Wednesday, November 25 with sister ship Pacific Aria, which will be named by singer Jessica Mauboy. The ceremony will be a key part of P&O Cruises’ Five Ship Spectacular which will see its entire five-ship fleet meet in Sydney for the first time for a day of celebrations.
