The P&O Australia cruise ship Pacific Explorer did a 20 years of service for Princess Cruises under the name Dawn Princess. In early 2017, the ship will be extensively refurbished – redesigned as facilities, renovated and upgraded with new amenities. Then it will be transferred to the P&O Australia’s fleet to join there the line’s other two newly acquired from Holland America ships Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden.
This ship as concept and design is sister to the P&O Cruises UK ships Adonia and Oceana.
