P&O Cruises is receiving direct feedback on its new cruise ship Pacific Explorer from four highly critical travellers, who also happen to still be in primary school.
The group of 10 year olds were selected out of 3,500 kids to form the ‘P&O Young Explorers’, an advisory panel responsible assessing the vessel’s features ahead of its launch next month.
Degan Charman from New South Wales’ Coffs Harbour ensured onboard activities were exciting:
Caitlin Leece from the Gold Coast reviewed the restaurants and food:
Lily Corliss from Caloundra in Queensland critiqued the entertainment and also kind of auditioned to be part of the line’s circus:
And then there’s Juno Jones from Sydney who assessed the proposed interior design of the ship:
The team gave their unanimous seal of approval to the traditional Italian Neapolitan pizzas which will be served at 400 Gradi, a new family restaurant on Pacific Explorer which will be overseen by famed Melbourne chef Johnny Di Francesco. The pizza-master was the first Australian to be trained in Naples to the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana VPN rules and recently won the award for Best Pizza in the World.
In the wettest test for the Young Advisors, the children assessed Pacific Explorer’s new Disco Diver waterslide and recommended that the music played inside be made louder to make the ride even more fun and heart stopping.
The Young Explorers also proposed that Pacific Explorer feature even more Australian live music performers throughout its bars and lounges and enjoyed a sneak peek of a contortionist’s performance which will form part of the new production show ‘Love Riot’ scheduled for the ship’s exclusive supper club, Black Circus.
Pacific Explorer will reflect P&O’s signature modern Australia look and feel, combining a relaxed and comfortable vibe with a striking contemporary design. According to The Young Explorers, the design of the public spaces onboard the ship will make guests “feel like millionaires.”
P&O Cruises Director of Entertainment Brett Annable received the Young Explorers’ recommendations and is confident that guests will be happy with their updates.
