CMV Amy Johnson Review
Review of CMV Amy Johnson
CMV Amy Johnson cruise ship was launched in 1991 as Regal Princess (link to the 2014-built liner). As "Pacific Dawn", the vessel was operated by P&O Australia (Carnival Corporation-owned company) in the period 2007-2020.
In February 2021, Pacific Dawn leaves P&O Australia. The ship's last cruise for P&O is scheduled for February 8, 2021 (departing from Melbourne to Singapore via Brisbane). The last voyage can be booked as short-break (Melbourne-Brisbane), Asia Explorer (Brisbane-Singapore) and "full farewell" (17-night B2B cruise Melbourne-Brisbane-Singapore). In April 2021, P&O Australia's fleet also leaves Pacific Aria. Both vessels were sold in November 2019 to CMV-Cruise and Maritime Voyages.
In 2021, Pacific Dawn will be renamed to "CMV Amy Johnson", Pacific Aria - to "CMV Ida Pfeiffer".
The 1900-passenger cruise ship Amy Johnson was designed by Renzo Piano (Italian architect). The vessel is interesting for providing connections between most staterooms (making it a great choice for families and group/party travellers). Following Pacific Dawn's drydock 2017, the ship now features the enormous Big Screen (outdoor theater / midship on Sundeck), new Aqua Park (waterpark with a dual-waterslide / aft on Sundeck), The Pantry (buffet-style market with fresh-food outlets), redesigned Atrium (decks 5-6-7), fully-renovated bars, lounges and wellness facilities.

CMV Amy Johnson Wiki
P&O Australia's cruise ship Pacific Dawn started its career under the name "Regal Princess". The vessel was initially operated by Princess Cruises( between 1991-2007) when it was transferred to P&O Australia's fleet, renamed "Pacific Dawn" (on Nov 8, 2007, following an extensive drydock refurbishment) and homeported in Brisbane QLD (leaving from port Hamilton, Queensland Australia). The vessel was launched on March 29, 1990, delivered on July 20, 1991, and christened (MS Regal Princess) on August 8 in NYC New York by godmother Margaret Thatcher (UK’s Prime Minister at the time).
For P&) Australia, the vessel was UK-flagged (MMSI number 235059368).
