Captain Pears thanked the City of Fremantle and the Fremantle RSL Sub Branch for inviting the Pacific Eden contingent to be part of the commemoration in Fremantle, where the ship is currently homeported for a three-month season.

“Participation in the Anzac Day commemoration is an opportunity to remember in particular the service of members of the merchant navy, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice in keeping shipping routes open at a time of great peril at sea,” Captain Pears said.

Anzac Day was marked on all five ships in the P&O Cruises’ fleet with a Dawn Service held on each ship including the sounding of the Last Post, the traditional observance of a minute’s silence and the casting of a wreath of remembrance on the sea.
