A 33-year-old man has been charged with raping a woman aboard P&O Cruises’ Pacific Aria.

The man was arrested on disembarking the ship on Sunday at Brisbane’s Portside Wharf in Hamilton, the Brisbane Times reported.

Detectives from the North Brisbane Criminal Investigation Branch charged him with two counts of rape.

The crime was allegedly committed on Saturday. The Brisbane Times said the alleged rapist and victim knew each other but police had declined to reveal their relationship.

The news outlet quoted a spokesman for Carnival Australia, P&O Cruises’ parent company, saying police had become involved after a woman complained a travelling companion had assaulted her.

The accused appeared in Brisbane’s Roma Street Magistrates Court. He did not apply for bail and is due to face court again on 29 May 2017.
