Pacific Dawn

Formerly the Regal Princess, this ship went through a major refurbishment and in late 2007 was renamed the Pacific Dawn by Olympic gold medallist, Cathy Freeman.

The Pacific Dawn is based year-round in Brisbane.

P&O Australia offers an active, mainstream experience with a friendly international crew that’s used to dealing with the congenial and sometimes raucous Aussie crowd. The atmosphere is more budget, value-seeking than upscale, and is popular with 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.
