P&O Cruises’ Pacific Eden cruised off into the horizon this week for the last time, well, at least she did so for the last time under the cruise line’s popular brand.

Pacific Eden was farewelled from the cruise line’s fleet this week, after completing her final P&O Cruises itinerary.

The ship’s departure follows the recent exit of Pacific Jewel.

Together the two cruise lines carried one million guests on a total of 646 cruises – 830,000 passengers for Pacific Jewel over nine years and 290,000 on Pacific Eden over three years.

Over the years, the pair is believed to have contributed some $600 million economic impact, while serving 6.2 million kilos of fresh vegetables and 2.4 million kilos of fresh fruit.

P&O Cruises’ President, Sture Myrmell, described both ships as “wonderful members” of the fleet and that while it’s sad to say farewell, their departure creates an opportunity for ‘Adventure’ – specifically, Pacific Adventure.

“Adventure literally awaits in every sense of the word with the arrival of Pacific Adventure in 2020 and a second Grand-class vessel in 2021.”

When she joins the fleet, Pacific Adventure will carry some 3,100 passengers and offer contemporary dining experiences, including one created by Australia chef and restauranteur, Luke Mangan, as well as Melbourne-based chef, Johnny Di Francesco.
