The Pantry, an international market place of fresh food outlets, will replace the traditional buffet
Sembawang has started a multi-million dollar refurbishment of P&O Cruises’ Pacific Dawn at its yard in Singapore.
While in dry dock, Pacific Dawn will be fitted with a new Mediterranean-inspired dining venue called Nic and Toni’s, new seafood restaurant Shell & Bones and The Pantry, an international market place of fresh food outlets that will replace the traditional buffet. A water park with two slides will also be added to her top deck.
Several of the ship’s public spaces will be redesigned to mirror the contemporary interiors on the newer P&O ships. These areas will include the atrium, Charlie’s cafe, The Orient and the Promenade Bar.
Pacific Dawn will set sail from Singapore on 2 March, arriving in Brisbane on 16 March to begin her year-round season from the Australian port. Alongside sister ship Pacific Aria, the newly refurbished Pacific Dawn will offer a record 108 cruises this year, an increase from 98 cruises in 2016.
