P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Eden will be homeporting from Singapore’s HarbourFront Cruise and Ferry Terminal in August, a decade since its last homeport in the city-state in 2006.
Its itineraries will include five departures from Singapore this year, consisting four roundtrip cruises to other destinations in South-east Asia such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Cambodia. Pacific Eden will also have four departures in 2017, including two roundtrip cruises.
The 1,500-guest ship offers 15 F&B options including Italian restaurant Angelo’s, Luke Mangan’s Salt Grill and The Pantry, a marketplace of international food outlets which replaces the traditional ship buffet.
Other features of the cruise ship include four great kids’ clubs, two pools, a child-free oasis with private cabanas, and the P&O Edge Adventure Park, which offers a range of activities including a flying fox.
P&O president Sture Myrmell said the cruise line’s Singapore season follows the expansion of its fleet with the addition of Pacific Eden and sister ship Pacific Aria in November last year.
“Singapore offers a great port experience for our guests and is the ideal hub for our two exciting Asian itineraries, which will include many maiden calls for P&O,” he said.
