Pacific Aria

Pacific Aria is a cruise ship of P&O Cruises Australia. Built for the Holland America Line in 1994 as the Ryndam, in November 2015 it was transferred to P&O Cruises Australia and renamed.

Like its P&O Australia counterparts, the Pacific Jewel, the Pacific Pearl and the Pacific Dawn, the clientele onboard is likely to be Australians, canvassing a wide demographic from young couples right through to multi-generational families.

P&O Cruises does not allow alcohol to be brought onboard the ship and any alcohol purchased in port or onboard the ship’s duty free shop will be retained until the last night of the cruise.
