Get your heart racing with two of the longest, wildest waterslides (over 80 metres), splash into a new action-packed waterpark, take time to discover all the fun and daring of P&OEdge’s signature Adventure Park, there’s a GIANT Outdoor Movie Screen… and that’s not the half of it!
Pacific Explorer, P&O Cruises’ newest flagship, is finally here!
And the Australian cruising public are going to be wowed by her multi-million dollar, 12-day transformation. Previously sailing as Princess Cruises Dawn Princess, the 77,000 tonne ship was purchased last year and renamed (and reinvented), to become the Pacific Explorer.
We here at Megastore think, though, that the most innovative and evolutionary developments have taken place in Pacific Explorer‘s new upmarket dining options. Imagine all of the chef-inspired creations poolside at LUKE’S grill, created by notable Australian chef – Luke Mangan or devouring fine Italian classics at the ultimate traditional Neapolitan pizzeria – 400 GRADI created with the award-winning Melbourne chef Johnny Di Francesco.
Feast all day in the main dining room – WATERFRONT RESTAURANT, or enjoy authentic flavours of la dolce vita in ANGELO’S Italian. Spice it up in the pan-Asian DRAGON LADY or be spoiled for choice with 9 fresh food options in the international marketplace THE PANTRY.
So that’s the fun and food taken care of… what else you ask?
What about kicking off your shoes for a game of lawn bowls on real grass? A fabulous night out at BLACK CIRCUS – an edgy cabaret or front-row for soulful songs and dancing the night away at one of the many intimate music venues? Enjoying unique cocktails, or whisky and gin-making classes with Sydney-based award-winning Archie Rose Distilling Co, at THE BONDED STORE?
What about being pampered in the ELEMIS SPA? An adults-only OASIS – no kids allowed? A FULLY FITTED GYM with fitness classes? Yes, yes and again YES! Pacific Explorer has all this and more to excite and entertain our Australia’s cruisers.
Sydney welcomes Pacific Explorer this week to her new homeport, ready to set sail again on her maiden voyage on 22 June. She is all set to cruise the South Pacific and Australia-New Zealand waters alongside her sisters in the iconic P&O fleet – Pacific Aria, Pacific Eden, Pacific Jewel and Pacific Dawn.
You could be one of the first to test-slide the thrilling waterpark, strap yourself in and fly over the ship on a flying fox, or relax as you watch a movie on the big screen as you sip cocktails (or mocktails) under the stars.
So, let’s get ready to cruise – call us today to sail away…
