Pacific Dawn

We do things differently at P&O. Forget everything you know about traditional cruise dining and say hello to innovative and fresh dining experiences. Perfect for families or groups of friends our Inter-Connecting rooms are available for groups of up to eight people. With a minimum of nine different bars on each ship, choose your favourite or try them all. Fancy a show after dinner? Catch one of our recent productions shows in the Marquee Theatre, all produced exclusively for P&O Cruises. Visible day and night, the Big Screen shows recent release movies, sports games like NRL. There’s even Big Screen karaoke.
