Farewell Pacific Pearl


All good things must come to an end.

Sailing with us since 2010, Pacific Pearl has stolen many Cruiselings hearts. We’re sad to see her go. But her farewell brings us closer to our exciting future, which includes the arrival of Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden in 2015, the arrival of Pacific Explorer in 2017 and a history-making purpose-built ship for Australians and Kiwis in 2019.

Pacific Pearl’s final cruise, a 16-night itinerary from Auckland to Singapore departs 27 March 2017. Following her farewell, Pacific Jewel will take up the reins as New Zealand’s cruise ship, sailing from Auckland for two months from 1 September 2017. As a result, some Pacific Jewel cruises have also been cancelled.

Guests booked on selected Pearl cruises will be contacted directly by P&O Cruises or their travel agent and will have the option of rebooking an equivalent or near equivalent cruise on another P&O ship or receiving a full refund, if no alternative cruises are suitable. Guests can also get in touch via the dedicated hotline and email address provided.
