Pacific Jewel

Operated by P&O Cruises Australia, the Pacific Jewel was built for Sitmar Cruises by Fincantieri in Monfalcone, Italy, and launched in 1989. Before she entered service, she was transferred to P&O Princess Cruises after P&O acquired Sitmar. She cruised as Crown Princess until 2002, when she was renamed A`Rosa Blu and transferred to A’Rosa Cruises.

In 2003, the ship was reassigned to the AIDA Cruises fleet, following the acquisition of P&O by Carnival Corporation.  After a refit, she re-entered service in 2004 as AIDAblu. Between 2007 and 2009, the ship was operated by Ocean Village as Ocean Village Two, but, after owner Carnival decided to shut down the Ocean Village brand, she was transferred to P&O Australia’s fleet and renamed Pacific Jewel.  Wikipedia.
