Review of Pacific Jewel

Launched in 1990 as Crown Princess, Pacific Jewel is one of the PO Australia cruise ships. The Jewel 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 70,310-ton, 1,950-passenger cruise ship Pacific Jewel used to be part of the German-based AIDA Cruises and the now-defunct Ocean Village brand, before joining P&O Australia fleet in 2009. The "dolphin-like" ship was designed by Italian Renzo Piano. Jewel's sister ship is Pacific Dawn. In 2010, P&O Pacific Jewel welcomed the prominent soap opera Neighbours and scenes were filmed onboard. That gained Jewel huge popularity among Australians.

Cruise itinerary program
