MS Pacific Aria (built 1994 as Ryndam, last refurbished in 2018) is one of the two new P&O Australia cruise ships - together with Pacific Eden (now CMV Vasco da Gama) and Pacific Explorer (ex-Dawn Princess). The cruise ship Pacific Aria was launched and operated under the name ms Ryndam (between 1994 and 2015) as part of the Holland America fleet. In May 2014, Carnival Corporation (shipowner) announced that Ryndam will be transferred in 2015 to P&O Australia after a scheduled refurbishment to tailor the vessel for the Australia/New Zealand market.

NEWS: In April 2021, Pacific Aria was planned to leave P&O Australia (last cruise April 9, 2021 / Melbourne-Fremantle-Singapore) and join the fleet of CMV UK as "Ida Pfeiffer". However, CMV filed for bankruptcy in July 2020.

Pacific Aria cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 630 staterooms for 1260 passengers (max capacity is 1512 guests), served by 560 crew/staff, 9 passenger decks, 15 food and drink venues (restaurants, lounges, bars), 2 swimming pools (one with retractable glass roof, one for adults), 2 Jacuzzies (spa pools), 8 elevators. The ship's new interior design (transforming ms Ryndam into Pacific Aria) was a project of “Tillberg Design” studio (Sweden).

Note: On the Pacific Aria ship, self-service launderettes (passenger use laundry/ironing facilities) are located on decks: 5 and 9. Laundry services on board are not complimentary /included in the fares. Smoking on the P&O Aria ship is permitted only at designated outdoor public areas.


The "Ryndam to Aria" cruise ship transformation was done by the Swedish company "Tillberg Design" during a scheduled drydock refurbishment in Sydney NSW.
