When she sails from Sydney on her first cruise on June 22, Pacific Explorer will be sporting the two longest and wildest waterslides on an Australian-based ship – each stretching more than 80 metres – along with an waterpark and a barefoot lawn bowling green. Top-deck favorites P&OEdge Adventure Park and the Big Screen will also be installed during the ship's dry dock.

During her time in Singapore, Pacific Explorer's public spaces, including its multi-story atrium, lounges, bars and restaurants, will be transformed with the introduction of the stylish modern Australian décor and quirky features which have become a trademark of the P&O fleet in recent years, the company said, in prepared remarks. 

P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said Pacific Explorer was the perfect addition to P&O's existing four-ship fleet.

"Pacific Explorer is the next stage in the evolution of P&O, building on our very popular modern Australian holiday offering with some exciting new features. We can't wait to show her off to our guests," Myrmell said.

Pacific Explorer will set sail from Singapore on June 9.
