With six months to go until Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden join P&O Cruises‘ Australian fleet, the company has revealed more of the ships’ interior features.

The new offerings were revealed in the latest P&O brochure and include The Blue Room, a blues and jazz lounge designed to resemble “a New Orleans speakeasy”, plus the new Ocean Bar, which will be fitted with chaise lounges. Other F&B offerings will include a private dining room with Chef’s Table, and the line’s signature ‘Salt Grill by Luke Mangan’ concept.

In terms of accommodation, the new ships will feature a series of Penthouse Suites with large spa baths, walk-in wardrobes and floor-to-ceiling windows opening on to private balconies.

There will also be an adults-only area called Oasis, featuring hanging chairs and day beds, plus a new-look Lido pool area with a retractable roof.

“Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden represent the next generation of P&O ships inspired by modern Australia. The new onboard features will drastically change the overall look and feel of our ships. It will be a relaxed vibe, casual enough to bring the sand in from the beach but with a touch of sophistication that will feel luxurious and indulgent,” said P&O’s senior vice president, Sture Myrmell.

“These additional ships will provide Australian cruisers with a boutique cruise experience year-round right from their doorstep. And the best part is that Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden will still provide the great value that a P&O Cruises’ holiday offers – we like to think of it as affordable luxury.”

The 1,500-passenger Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden will join P&O’s Australian fleet on 25 November 2015.
