Architecture on the high seas
The brainchild of Renzo Piano, the highly regarded Italian architect, cruise ship Pacific Dawn currently sails out of Brisbane all year round, and has recently undergone a makeover that includes many new additions and amenities. These new features include a world-first with new inter-connecting cabins, MIX cocktail bar, pub style venue The Orient, and a massive LED big screen.
New features and better than ever
Pacific Dawn's suites and mini-suites have had a complete facelift, there are plush new furnishings in the Marquee Theatre, and her main dining establishment has emerged as the new Waterfront Restaurant. To top it all off, you can now cool-off with a gourmet ice-cream from the New Zealand Natural ice-cream bar.
One of Pacific Dawn's most engaging features is The Dome - her entertainment extravaganza. Drink-up the amazing views during the day, and be entertained in style at night with great live shows including comedy and jazz events.
Eat, drink and be entertained
Food buffs get pampered too, with the buffet-style restaurant, and the more sophisticated á la carte choice in the main dining area. The Grill also has more laid-back options pool-side. If you want to explore the more exotic tastes of Asia, for a small cover charge there's an eight-course option at La Luna, or celebrity chef Luke Mangan's Salt Grill.
There are also many other features to enjoy onboard Pacific Dawn: 184 cabins with balconies, four children’s centres, 9 bars, multiple lounges, four spas and two outdoor pools, a library, duty-free shopping, the Oasis - an adult’s only retreat, and a gym and day spa.
