Pacific Pearl

Pacific Pearl was formerly Ocean Village from the now defunct cruise line of the same name. She joined P&O Australia in December 2010 and is the only ship to be launched and based in New Zealand, complete with her own Kiwi godmother, Barbara Kendall.

Pacific Pearl will make a limited number of visits to New Zealand during the summer, but will be based in Auckland for winter cruises to the Pacific Islands from April to June.

Like its P&O Australia counterparts, the Pacific Jewel 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.
