P&O Pacific Pearl Reviews

The Pacific Pearl is a classic favourite in P&O's Australian cruise fleet, and is a floating utopia of exciting activities, luxurious accommodation and delicious dining. Get a sneak peek at what it's like to cruise on her with our reviews from past passengers.

The basics

You'll find a more intimate setting on board the Pacific Pearl with a capacity for just 1,800 passengers across 11 decks. The ship measures 247 metres in length and can travel at speeds of up to 21.5 knots.

Travelling around New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific, the ship provides a window to this beautiful corner of the world.


There are rooms to suit all budgets, with mini-suites, suites, balcony staterooms, ocean views, cabins, and options for interconnecting rooms for larger groups and families.

All rooms offer space to relax, unwind and unpack, along with amenities like safes, flat-screen TVs, fridges, desks and daily service. Booked a suite? You'll find a nespresso coffee machine awaiting your use! There are 10 wheelchair-accessible cabins throughout the ship.


P&O prioritises the dining experiences with their own Food Revolution, a focus on fresh and innovative meal options on board all its ships.

The Cafe is a great place for a sweet chocolate fix, and the Salt Grill is the place to go for a P&O exclusive menu from celebrity chef Luke Mangan. Enjoy a buffet at the Plantation or opt for a la carte at the modern Waterfront Restaurant.


The Pacific Pearl is special for its circus performances in the Atrium, the Pacific Cirque. There are trapeze artists, acrobatics, jugglers and fire twirlers.

Head to the two-storey Marquee Theatre to see the spectacular production shows created especially for P&O cruises. There will be music, dancing, lights, and action, all performed at a level worthy of any top-end land production.

You can also try your hand at rally driving in the race simulators, watch what's on the LED big screen on the deck, take a dip in one of the two outdoor pools and enjoy a drink at the swim-up bar. Grown-ups can take some time out in the Oasis retreat, and the hot tubs, library, gym and day spas will have you feeling refreshed in no time.
