Pacific Encounter

Meet Pacific Encounter!

We are thrilled that the arrival of Pacific Encounter has been brought forward. She will now arrive in May 2021 and cruise from Brisbane.

Pacific Encounter will showcase many of P&O’s favourite features as well as a range of new ones that guests are going to love.

Splurge and book a suite or selected mini-suite and along with a host of great benefits, you’ll gain access to Byron Beach Club, a private retreat with pool, spas and comfy seating, located on the top deck of the ship. Enjoy expansive views along with pure relaxation.

Dine at Waterfront, Angelo’s, Dragon Lady or go casual in The Pantry. For something special head to our new celebrity chef concepts from Luke Mangan and Johnny di Francesco. Find your favourite bar and chill to some live music or stay out late at our nightclub, Altitude.

Families will love the dedicated indoor/outdoor family area with a pool, family focussed fun, games, parties and activities.

There are more spaces to explore, more places to relax and more things to do. On Pacific Encounter, you’ll find there’s something for everyone.
