Pacific Aria’s drydock and refurbishment

P&O Cruises' Pacific Aria has entered has entered her 12-day dry dock in Singapore and will soon emerge sporting several stylish new touches.

A key highlight of the refurbishment will be the refresh of popular late night hotspot, The Dome, with the venue set to take on a contemporary nautical theme featuring dark navy blue and white hues, drapes and soft lighting. Overlooking the bow of the ship, The Dome is one of the best places to relax during the day.

The makeover will also include new, modernised d├ęcor in the kids zones (Turtle Cove, Shark Shack, HQ and HQ+) and a revamp of the ship's 28 suites and 120 balcony cabins to include new carpets and outdoor furniture. In total, 10,528 square metres of new carpet will be laid throughout the ship.

Pacific Aria's finishing touch will be the Southern Cross livery emblazoned on her hull, now a signature feature of P&O's fleet.

The dry dock is the ship's first since she joined the P&O Cruises fleet in November 2015.
