Pacific Adventure Wiki
The Fincantieri Monfalcone-built Princess Cruises Golden ship is a Grand-class liner, with (same-designed) sisterships Grand and Star (now Pacific Encounter). The other (similarly-designed) vessels from this class are the Princess ships Caribbean, Crown, Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire. Ship's godmother was Merlisa George - at that time "Miss USVI" (US Virgin Islands). The inaugural cruise (maiden voyage) started on May 16, 2001 (UK to Mediterranean itinerary from Southampton to Barcelona). Fan fact is that in the period 1993-1997, under the same name (Golden Princess) was chartered the ship MV Boudicca (Fred Olsen).
Pacific Adventure (Monfalcone shipyard/hull number 6050) is powered by Wartsila-Sulzer marine diesel engines (models 8ZAV40S and 8ZAL40) generating total power output 63,36 MW.
In December 2019, the liner became fleet's first Australia-based vessel (leaving from homeport Melbourne Victoria) with installed MedallionNet technology. Also in 2019, the innovative technology was installed on the fleetmates Coral (April), Island (May), Crown (June), Emerald (August) and Sky (October).
Pacific Adventure refurbishment 2021 review
Before entering P&O Australia's fleet, the ship was drydocked at Fincantieri Trieste ATSM Shipyard in Trieste Italy (August 16 - September 4, 2021) for general maintenance works, repainting (hull and superstructure) and various refurbishment projects.
The vessel now has a new livery (with the Southern Cross on the bow), several new dining options (via partnerships with celebrity chefs Luke William Mangan and Johnny Di Francesco), redesigned venues (including Adventure Hotel and Blue Room), 4x new restaurants (Angelo’s/Italian, Dragon Lady/Asian, The Waterfront, The Pantry/Buffet with fresh-food outlets), renovated staterooms and public areas.

According to the company, the longer than usual repositioning cruise was created due to demand from Asian customers wishing to embark closer from home and go all the way to Alaska, instead of just booking the 7-day "Alaska Grand Adventure" itinerary. It also appealed to Asians as the route linked many Asian ports famous for their themed activities and local cuisine.
