Australia’s latest cruise ship, P&O Cruises’ Pacific Eden, has departed on its maiden voyage, after debuting in Fremantle on the weekend.
Heralded as a game changer for the Australian cruise industry, the 55,820-tonne Pacific Eden boasts a stunning design, which reflects the contemporary style of modern Australia. The ship’s features include 15 dining options, luxe new bars, a resort-style pool deck, a child-free Oasis with private cabanas, a plush private dining room and some of the most spacious rooms across the fleet.
Pacific Eden left Fremantle yesterday afternoon and will call at Esperance tomorrow ahead of her maiden visits to Adelaide (Friday Nov 20), Kangaroo Island (Saturday Nov 21) and Melbourne (Monday Nov 23) en route to Sydney.
Pacific Eden will be christened by actress Kate Ritchie in a dual naming ceremony on Sydney Harbour on Wednesday November 25 with sister ship Pacific Aria, which will be named by singer Jessica Mauboy. The ceremony will be a key part of P&O Cruises’ Five Ship Spectacular which will see its entire five-ship fleet meet in Sydney for the first time for a day of celebrations.
