P&O - Pacific Eden Overview

The P&O Pacific Eden travels predominantly to destinations in Asia and the South Pacific, including Singapore, Cairns, Fremantle, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.

This spacious and modern ship represented two 'firsts' for P&O Cruises Australia: she was the first vessel to sail out of Tropical North Queensland, as well as the first to sail out of Singapore. With a range of itineraries to choose from, the P&O Pacific Eden is the perfect base from which to explore Australia, Asia and beyond.

P&O Pacific Eden specs

Very similar to her sister vessel, the P&O Pacific Aria, the P&O Pacific Eden is the perfect size for short to medium length cruises, sleeping a total of 1500 passengers and spanning across 14 decks.

Inside P&O Pacific Eden

Built in 1993, the this vessel used to go by the name of Statendam and belonged to the Holland America Line fleet. In 2015 she underwent major refurbishments and reemerged as P&O Pacific Eden.

Most of the interior decor was replaced or upgraded, and several new eateries added. The new design is modern, crisp and tasteful - think clean whites, deep blues and soft lighting.

P&O Pacific Eden restaurants and bars

Foodies will be in heaven on board the P&O Pacific Eden; there are many eateries to choose from, and all are of an incredibly high quality, offering fresh, innovative menus that take a modern twist on traditional cruise fare.

Particular eateries of note include The Pantry, P&O's new approach to the cruise buffet, and the Chef's Table. At the pantry you will find all of the choice a buffet has to offer, but without any of the dated, boring food options they can sometimes be associated with.

Meanwhile the Chef's Table is advertised as 'The Best Seat in the House' and it's not hard to see why. Hosted by an Executive Chef, an evening meal here includes cocktails and canapes on arrival, a private tour of the galley, followed by several courses, all with accompanying wine matches.

Speaking of wine, the Cellar Door offers daily tastings and master classes and is fully stocked with a range of Australia's best reds and whites. This is just one of the many stylish bars on board - guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a relaxing spot to enjoy an evening drink.

Things to do on P&O Pacific Eden

All of the activities on board the P&O Pacific Eden seem to be designed with one goal in mind; to leave you feeling great. From yoga classes at sunrise to cocktail lessons in the evening, each activity is guaranteed to put a spring in your step.

Other organised activities include 'Let Me Entertain You' (an interactive game show), golf putting, table tennis and card games. The ship also has most traditional public rooms, such as a fitness centre, an internet cafe and a casino.

P&O Pacific Eden itineraries and shore excursions

From regular cruises around Australia, to more exotic trips to beautiful ports in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, the P&O Pacific Eden offers many appealing itineraries to suit all holidaymakers. Shore excursions will depend on the cruise destination, but you can expect trips to attractions such as Mclaren Vale Vineyards & Olive Groves in Adelaide and the Botanic Gardens in Singapore.

Cabins on board the P&O Pacific Eden cruise ship

Make the P&O Pacific Eden your home away from home. All of the staterooms are comfortable and inviting, the perfect retreat for when you feel like some downtime. Little luxuries go a long way when you're away from your own bed, so guests are bound to appreciate the fluffy white towels, flat screen TVs and ample storage space.

The interior rooms are a great option for the budget-conscious cruiser, while the balcony and oceanview cabins offer a beautiful view for a good price. If you would prefer extra space, the mini suites have separate dining areas and large balconies, while the Penthouse comes with a big spa bath and is kitted out with floor to ceiling windows.

Dining included in your P&O Pacific Eden ticket:

  • The Pantry: P&O's new take on traditional buffet-style dining
  • The Waterfront Restaurant: The main formal dining room
  • Dragon Lady: Pan-Asian cuisine
  • The Cafe: serving light snacks, hot drinks and a mouth-watering variety of chocolate treats

Entertainment on board the P&O Pacific Eden cruise ship

Don't be surprised if your books go unread on board the P&O Pacific Eden - with so many entertainment options you could easily be socialising around the clock!

A unique offering to P&O is The Open Kitchen; here you can learn cooking tips and tricks at an evening class, as well as sample your own creations. This is a great way to meet new people and do something different during the dinner hour.

Other highlights include the Comedy Club, Cinema and Marquee Theatre, three great venues for when you feel like sitting back, watching a show and letting others do all of the entertaining for you.

As the night goes on, there's no shortage of venues to continue the party. The nine bars, pubs and nightclubs on board offer a range of beverages and entertainment options. For live music and dancing, try the Dome Bar, or for upmarket drinks and a stylish atmosphere, both the MIX Cocktail Bar and The Orient are equally good choices.

Depending on the night of the week some bars will also host themed parties, while the Casino regularly puts on a Ladies Night.

P&O Pacific Eden pools, gyms and spas

The ship's main pool area was one of the key facilities that underwent a complete redesign during the refurbishment in 2015, so guests can expect nothing short of excellence in this department. From the day beds and deck chairs, through to the sheer white curtains and vibrant outdoor plants, the new decor is contemporary and stylish.

A secondary pool area, the Oasis - an adults-only retreat - can be found on the top deck. This area has its own private bar and an amazing view of the water. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail in hand.

If you'd like to keep up your fitness while at sea but lack the motivation to head to the gym or swim laps at the pool, then you'll love P&O's new bootcamp offering. Led by an experienced instructor, this kind of workout might not be everyone's idea of a holiday, but it's guaranteed to leave you feeling fit and fantastic afterwards. Besides, there are ample areas to recover - cool off in the pool or relax those muscles in a hot tub.

You can sign up for the bootcamp at the Aqua HealthSpaFitness centre. While you're there, don't forget to browse the Spa's wide range of treatments, from relaxing massages to rejuvenating facials.

P&O Pacific Eden for families

Families are more than welcome on board the P&O Pacific Eden. Children must be aged 12 months or older for long cruises, however some short coastal breaks may allow those aged 6 months.The interconnecting cabins offer families ample space, and there are plenty of kid-friendly meal options at the majority of the ship's eateries.

In terms of activities, the P&O Edge programme is focused around fun and adventure - think bungee trampolining and laser tag. There are also three age-specific activity groups available; Turtle Cove for ages 3 to 6, Shark Shack for ages 7 to 10 and HQ for tweens and teens.

While there is no in-cabin babysitting available, the Kids Club reopens between 10.30pm to 1am for group babysitting, at a fee of $5 per child (ages 3-11 only).

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
