Blue Room is the Atrium Lounge & Bar featuring a large dance floor and live music entertainment, turned into a dance club with DJ at 11 pm. The lounge is served by its own piano bar. The late-night blues session named Blues@Blue feature several very talented musicians getting together for a 1-hour-long jam, rotating with excellent guitarists and different singers.
400 Gradi (Neapolitan pizzeria by chef Johnny Di Francesco) is complimentary and open for Lunch (between 12-1:30 pm) and Dinner (between 6-11 pm). With no free pizza onboard Pacific Adventure, P&O Cruises makes guests pay for it, charging US$10 to US$16 each. The capricciosa, suprema, lasagne (US$13) and desserts (from US$6) are worth the price. Many passengers prefer takeaway pizzas to eat elsewhere or get these delivered to the cabin via room service.
Black Circus Theatre is an aft-located entertainment venue (Lounge & Bar) with a large stage for live performances by guest comedians, singers, illusionists. The lounge is served by its own full-service Bar. Intended for cabaret performances, the venue aims to feature a supper club vibe but there are no full-size tables to eat supper, so it's basically a theatre with rows of seats along with ledges to place drinks. During the day, the lounge is used for kids' TC&Skipper's Island Adventure Show, The Edge's laser tag and early evening movies.
