The P&O Cruises Fleet

Pacific Dawn

pacific-dawnThe Pacific Dawn sailed into Sydney Harbour to make this her base in October 2007, passing just two and a half metres below the Harbour Bridge. This is some ship!

The curved ‘dolphin-like’ shape is thanks to famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano (those sailing to New Caledonia can see his work at the Tjibou Cultural Centre).

With 11 decks the Dawn offers affordable luxury and plenty of space for up to 2050 passengers. It is 50% larger than the legendary Titanic – but there are no icebergs in the Pacific.. .more info

In December 2009, Pacific Jewel appeared on the horizon, offering two incredible firsts: an amazing high-wire circus and trapeze arena on the top deck, and the largest spa afloat in the southern hemisphere.
