Review of Pacific Jewel

Launched in 1990 as Crown Princess, Pacific Jewel is one of the PO Australia cruise ships.

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.

Pacific Jewel cruise ship

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 Holidays company, 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.

  • The vessel was launched on May 25, 1989, as "Crown Princess", and delivered to P&O Princess Cruises on June 29, 1990. The inaugural voyage started on July 8.
  • In 2002, the shipowner P&O Princess Cruises created A’Rosa Cruises (Germany-targeting brand) and transferred the vessel, renaming it “A’Rosa Blu”.
  • In 2004, the new shipowner Carnival Corporation transferred the vessel to the AIDA subsidiary, increasing its capacity (to 2014 passengers, 621 crew) and renaming it to “AIDAblu”.
  • On April 24, 2007, started Ocean Village Two's Inaugural cruise (Mediterranean itinerary) following a drydock refit at Lloyd Werft (Bremerhaven Germany). The vessel joined its fleetmate Ocean Village One (currently Columbus).
  • Pacific Jewel cruise ship as design is sister to Pacific Dawn and similar to Pacific Pearl (Columbus since 2017) and Crown Princess.

In 2010, the Ocean Village company ceased operations. In November the vessel was refurbished in Singapore (at Sembawang Shipyards), renamed “Pacific Jewel” and started a South Pacific cruise itinerary program with departures from homeport Sydney NSW Australia.

Cruise itinerary program

Pacific Jewel itinerary program is based on Australia cruises from Sydney, MelbourneBrisbaneAdelaideFremantle, 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 and Papua New Guinea; Coral Coast and Indonesia cruises; oneway itineraries on repositioning.

Cabins

Most Pacific Jewel staterooms are 190-sq.foot Oceanview rooms (436). Of all Pacific Dawn cabins, nearly 25% have a private balcony. There are a total of 798 staterooms in 27 categories. The largest aboard Pacific Jewel are the Suites (560 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

Dining-wise, there are 5 dining venues onoard Pacific Jewel. The line has also recruited its first ever celebrity manager, Luke Mangan, who adds his touches to the menu in the Salt Grill steak and seafood restaurant. Chocolate lovers are in for a treat - this cruise vessel has its own chocolate cafe, serving up chocolate ravioli, warm chocolate fondant, Belgium waffles and a range of cookies. 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. Back by popular demand are favourites, such as the exclusive 14-seat Chef's Table.

This is a group of all 21 islands surrounding a blue lagoon with a pristine reef system. This makes the new destination one of the perfect ones for snorkeling and diving excursions in the South Pacific.
  • In June 2016, Pacific Jewel became the first cruise ship to visit Conflict Islands as part of P&O Australia's Papua New Guinea itineraries. The ship operated out of Melbourne (Victoria) (between November 2017 and March 2018) for 109 days, offering 18 cruises. A new 12-night NZ itinerary visited Fiordland National Park and Stewart Island. Short Breaks were offered to Eden NSW and Kangaroo Island.

  • In November 2017, P&O Australia operated company's first ever "Melbourne Cup Carnival" cruise from Auckland NZ. The 10-night cruise itinerary to the world famous "Emirates Melbourne Cup" also highlighted PandO’s inaugural season in New Zealand, with the 2000-passenger iner on roundtrips from Auckland (September 1 through October 31, 2017). This sports-themed  cruise attracted around 2000 NZ racing fans as part of the 6000-contingent of P&O AU guests cruising to "Melbourne Cup Carnival".

The Cartoon Network Wave cruise line will operate voyages to 13 Asia Pacific destinations, including China, Singapore, Malaysia.

The colorful vessel will start its maiden voyage from Singapore in late 2018. On board will be provided one of the best kids-themed experiences at sea. It will feature 800 staterooms, 11 entertainment decks (hosting themed nights - including theme parties and circus shows), rope course (outdoor adventure park), "Young Tooniverse" (outdoor playfround for kids), Toonix pool, cartoon-themed onboard activities and amenities (entertainment, food, drinks, characters meets&greets - The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Ben 10, We Bare Bears).

The released artist’s impression images (based on the Pacific Jewel ship) resulted in speculations that the liner had been sold to the new company.
