Pacific Dawn cruise ship
P&O Cruises has a stunner in the Pacific Dawn. Designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano, she started life in the Princess fleet and made her debut with P&O Australia in 2008. This sturdy ship is a favourite amongst the line's fun-loving and relaxed Australian passengers, having received a modernising refurbishment in 2017 to bring about a new Dawn of cruising in the South Pacific.
Freshened up cabins and public spaces make the Pacific Dawn feel up-to-date but still comfortable with natural tones and lots of blue and green accents to bring the ocean inside. Casual fun in the sun is the atmosphere onboard the Pacific Dawn, and many cruisers come away feeling like they have made a big, inanimate ship-shaped friend.
Food: Pacific Dawn restaurants
A very important issue for most cruisers! The dining options aboard the Pacific Dawn mean no-one ever has to go hungry. Order off the menu at the Waterfront Restaurant or opt for a more casual grab and go style of dining - the choices are there.
You can also spice up your evening meal with one of the Pacific Dawn's specialty restaurants or the incredible Chef's Table dining experience.
The P&O fleet has a focus on fresh, local ingredients, and you can get Aussie favourites mixed in with the usual cruise ship fare. Great and friendly service rounds out the fantastic Pacific Dawn dining experience.
Bars and more: Evenings on the Pacific Dawn
The nightlife is a fantastic aspect of the cruising life - everything is right there, there is no driving or waiting in queues and you can pop back to your cabin to freshen up whenever you feel the need. The Pacific Dawn makes it easy to drink, socialise and dance the evening away in whatever manner you desire.
Broadway-style productions, concerts, live music and quiet places to relax are all on the Pacific Dawn evening entertainment menu. You can also catch a movie or an all-important sports match on the Big Screen by the pool, or take a breather and watch TV in your cabin.
Pacific Dawn activities, pool and fitness
Featuring The Edge outdoor adventure park, the Pacific Dawn has plenty of facilities to keep cruisers busy during the daytime hours. From racing simulators to a quiet library, the ship can cater to most tastes.
The two pools on the Pacific Dawn are found on Deck 12, and there is a jogging track on Deck 14 for some casual exercise. Those looking for a more structured workout will find the Aqua spa and fitness facility on Deck 2.
Pacific Dawn now also features the Waterpark where the Kids can play with interactive water features. Or embrace the fun with Waterslides found on Deck 14.
It's not just the features of the ship that make a Pacific Dawn cruise a good one, however, but the people. The crew will organise activities for passengers of all ages and interests. You might decide on a martini mixology class, a dance class, the classic trivia quiz or a spot of karaoke to while away a sea day, or just pull up a deckchair and enjoy being at sea.
A place to rest your head at night is important on any holiday. The Pacific Dawn can provide just that, as well as some great options for cruising families.
The ship has a total of 795 cabins and suites. All suites and 134 cabins have balconies, and the rest include 440 outside (oceanview) staterooms and 171 inside staterooms. Blue accents and wooden touches throughout make all accommodations an attractive place to spend time, and they all come with a flat screen TV, individual air conditioning, daily services and cleaning and space to store your clothes away.
Suite guests aboard the Pacific Dawn enjoy a few extra perks. As well as separate living areas, they get a nespresso coffee machine, an iPod dock, a fridge, complimentary laundry service, and invites to the Senior Officers Cocktail party on cruises of five nights or more.
Interconnecting rooms make it simple to house the whole family. On the Pacific Dawn, they are available in quad-quad, twin-quad, triple-triple and twin-twin configurations for various sized groups.

Pacific Dawn pools and more
A small makeover in early 2015 saw the Pacific Dawn get not only the Edge adventure park but a new-look pool deck with hammocks, a new bar and resort-style outdoor furniture for a luxurious lounging experience.
In 2017 Pacific Dawn installed the Waterpark where the Kids can play with interactive water features. Or embrace the fun with Waterslides found on Deck 14.
The two pools are found on Deck 12 and are separated by a large outdoor stage. and some hot tubs. One is for adults only, and the other a buzzing hive of activity for everyone onboard. Nearby you will also find the big screen and the Lido Pool Bar for those fruity cocktails which go so well with a day at the pool.
The Edge is for adrenaline-seekers. Features include an abseiling wall on the funnel, a flying fox, a bow ladder climb, a cargo net race, a high ropes course and more - all with the appropriate safety equipment of course.

Pacific Dawn daily schedules
Passengers will have the Pacific Daily delivered to their cabin each morning outlining the day's scheduled activities and a little information about time zones, sunrise and sunset. There is no monotony on the Pacific Dawn, each day is different: but here are a few things you might possibly see in your day's line-up:
In the evening
The daily newsletter also covers what's happening each night. Aboard the Pacific Dawn, the Marquee Theatre is where the live spectacles take place and you will also find a lot of people enjoying the movies and sports games on the big screen. The Orient Pub is a favourite place for a quiet drink, as is the Mix bar for cocktails. The casino doubles as a sports bar, and for dancing you can head to the Dome late after 10:30pm when it becomes a nightclub.
Theme nights are a fun aspect of the P&O entertainment. Themed music, decorations and costumes donned by obliging passengers make a great party atmosphere - check your cruise schedule to find out what you can expect.
Pacific Dawn for families
A holiday on the Pacific Dawn is great for adults and even better for kids, with the legendary P&O Kids Clubs offering fun and activities targeted at four different age groups. There is Turtle Cove for two to six year olds, Shark Shack for seven to ten year olds, HQ for eleven to fourteen year olds and HQ+ for fifteen to seventeen year olds. These all provide age-appropriate things for kids to do, with cool hang out areas for the older teens.
Additional excitement for the young ones includes a short film making opportunity, a talent show, a music program and Sleepyheads Storytime for the littlest cruisers before they head off to bed. Additional excitement for the adults includes the fact that the kids programs operate until 10:30pm - and group child minding is available until 1am for an extra charge.
Of course, a family holiday should include time together, and the Pacific Dawn's facilities offer plenty of opportunities for that. From a day at the pool to taking on the other teams in a scavenger hunt, a cruise is a great way to make memories with the entire clan.
we went on state of origin cruise in 2016 to syd would have to say it was the most enjoyable cruise we have done met some great people from both sides of the border and had plenty of friendly banter going back and forward,most meals in the plantation and dined with complete strangers each night but
by the end of the night they were like old friends.only down side was the trip out to the ground for the game we struck a bus driver who did not seem to know his way round syd to well and it took nearly two hours to get there different driver going back to the dawn 55 mins.all in all great trip and doing again this year on aria hope it is just as good and meet some old friends again plus some new ones.
I have been on the Dawn on 3 cruises total 36 nights NZ, Fiji, Vanuatu. I have found it to be the best way of spending my hard earned money for a vacation. Everything is great about this ship and cruise line. Staff are so good at looking after you no matter what. Thanks to P & O also putting
together the premium drink package with my booking, makes the cruises very good value for money. Going on 4th cruise in June, can't wait to see the refurb
This was my first cruise on Pacific Dawn & I had no idea of what to expect. The first day was overwhelming with the amount of people moving around but is settled down on the second day after we had explored the ship. The staff are wonderful and always willing to help. Its an easy holiday if your
life is hectic, Get aboard, relax, get fed, room cleaned, entertainment always happening. We found unlike most holidays were your looking for a place to eat lunch/dinner & sightseeing or things to keep you occupied a cruise is easy all you could want in one place, no driving! We will be going on another cruise this year.
The Food is fantastic and plenty on offer. We enjoyed the night time Entertainment & late night movie in the show room. Bingo is a laugh. You can be around people & socialise if you feel or stay in your room relax & enjoy a movie. The staff are wonderful always happy to help. Room Staff did not stop working, your room was cleaned the moment you left, Shoes neatly in a row, clothes picked up off the floor. Easy no brainer holiday. No cash on board just swipe your cruise card pay on the day of departure.
Loved the cruise, suite was brilliant, would recommend cruise for everyone, family, singles , young couples . Great way to meet and make lots of new friends, ports we stopped at were great, looking forward to our next cruise. looking forward to our next cruise with all our wonderful friends.
Looking forward to going on the Pacific Dawn after her refit, looking forward to trying out the new pantry, I'm sure that will b so much better than the buffet, hopefully they will improve the food, looking forward to going on a new Zealand cruise, I've heard it brilliant, cruise.
Group of us who turned 60 celebrated our birthdays and had a wonderful and funny time together. To be waited on and able to relax made it so enjoyable. Stage shows were good but not to the standard I have seen on previous ships, little disappointed. The food was very nice and plenty of it. We ate
mostly in the restaurant as we liked the idea of being served our meal rather than line up for food. Drink service was excellent and our afternoon cocktails around the pool deck in the afternoon and at the back of the ship at sunset were very enjoyable. The weather was perfect not a cloud in the sky and so warm. Lots of lazing around the pool during the day. Dancing, singing and lots of laughter at night.
I would recommend going on a cruise in a group as we had so much fun together and gave us all a chance to talk together about our younger days over a few quiet drinks. One couple entered the Marriage Game and that was lots of fun the Cruise Director Willie was such a funny man and added a lot of humour to the entertainment. Name that Tune was another enjoyable entertainment session. Looking forward to my next cruise whenever that may be sooner than later I hope they are the best holiday!!
