P&O Cruises Australia is to install a Twin-Racer waterslide and the P&O Edge Adventure Park onboard Pacific Encounter during a three-week dry dock in Singapore.
The Twin-Racer waterslide will be 142 metres long and 16 metres high, while the Adventure Park will be situated 10 metres above deck 16. Among the features of the park will be a 55-metre-long zipline, a rock climbing wall, a cargo net, Walk the Plank and a beam walk.
Pacific Encounter is currently repositioning to Singapore for the dry dock via a 14-night ‘Indonesian Explorer’ cruise, which will arrive on 6 February. During the voyage, the ship became the first P&O Cruises Australia ship to visit the port of Darwin in Australia since cruising resumed after the Covid-19 pandemic, and the first ever to Benoa and Lombok in Indonesia. Once work is completed, the ship will recommence its year-round cruise programme from Brisbane, Australia.
“These exciting additions will mark the completion our three-fleet transformation and bring us yet another step closer to a full and ‘normal’ cruising season,” said Marguerite Fitzgerald, president of P&O Cruises Australia. “And of course, we look forward to welcoming our Brisbane guests back onboard and seeing the joy as they race down the new slides and test out the adrenalin-pumping activities at sea when she returns.”
