Review of Pacific Dawn

Launched in 1991 as Regal Princess, Pacific Dawn is one of the PO Australia cruise ships. The Dawn ship cost US $277 million to build and was last refurbished in 2015.

History - construction & ownership

P&O Cruises is based at Carnival House in Southampton, UK, operated by Carnival UK and owned by Carnival Corp. & plc. This British-American cruise line was originally a constituent of Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company. P and O Cruises is the world's oldest cruise line, having operated the first passenger ships in early 19th century. It is sister company of P&O Cruises Australia. P and O Cruises was de-merged from P&O group in 2000, and became a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises, which in 2003 merged with Carnival Corp. to form Carnival Corp. & plc. PO Cruises currently operates eight ships with a total guest capacity of 14,970 and 5% market share of worldwide cruise lines. Its most recent ship, mv Britannia, joined the fleet in March 2015.

The 70,285-ton, 1,990-passenger cruise ship Pacific Dawn was designed by Renzo Piano (Italian architect). The vessel is good looking and pleasure for the eyes. Interesting thing about Dawn is the connection of the cabins (ideal for families). Anyone can enjoy the enormous LED Screen, MIX coctail bar and themed venues like the pub and the Orient. The main restaurant has been designed into the Waterfront, new furnishings delivered for the Marquee Theatre, and all of the suites refurbished. Definitely all guests will remember The Dome, enormous public area for great live entertainment, shows and music events.

Cruise itinerary program

Pacific Dawn itinerary program is based on Australia cruises from Brisbane, including roundtrip “South Pacific Islands” voyages to Fiji, Vanuatu, Santo, New Caledonia; “cruises to nowhere” and short breaks; Queensland cruises to the Great Barrier Reef.

Dining options - Food & Drinks

Sophisticated and various food is available onboard Pacific Dawn. The buffet restaurant, á la carte main dining room and The Grill give a chance to choose from. For a little fee passengers can sense the flavors of Asia with an 8 course banquet at La Luna or, dine in style at celebrity chef restaurant Salt grill by Luke Mangan. Back by popular demand are favourites, such as the exclusive 14-seat Chef's Table. The Waterfront Restaurant, ship's main dining room, continues to serve classic Australian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a stylish setting.

Daytime activities range from whiskey tastings and martini mixology classes to quilling and salsa dance classes. Passengers can find karaoke, bingo and trivia almost every day. The daily itinerary on sea days is packed with activities. The big-screen on the pool deck proved to be a big hit, and is largely used for broadcasting full-length concerts, live sports and movies. Major international sporting events are also shown (such as the FIFA World Cup). Evening entertainment is standard cruise ship fare with a mix of guest entertainers and Broadway-style production shows. For kids, innovative activity clubs include Turtle Cove (ages 3-6-yo), Shark Shack (ages 7-10-yo) and HQ for teens.
