P&O Cruises’ newest ship, Pacific Adventure, will bring out the most competitive people in the family with first-of-its-kind dual racing waterslides!

Named the “Twin Racer”, the epic new waterslide is specifically designed for people to race each other against the clock. The slide has two 135m tubes including two sections that are transparent so racers can keep tabs on their opponent as they rush towards the finish.

“I reckon we’re delivering the Australian family dream of spending more quality time together while on holiday”.

P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell

Pacific Adventure’s splashing new feature forms part of the ship’s new dedicated family entertainment area, which also includes a pool under a sliding glass roof so guests can swim any time of the year.


More about the Pacific Adventure

Karry On - Pacific Adventure

Situated in the heart of the 3100 guest ship, the modern indoor-outdoor space is designed for families to spend time together on holiday enjoying group games and activities.

For the more adventurous, guests can experience the P&O Edge Adventure Park with a flying fox, “Walk the Plank” and rock climbing wall built next to the “Twin Racer” waterslide and offering unrivaled views of the ocean from its very top.

Guests can enjoy pizza delivery by picking up the ‘Big Red Phone’ connecting to a hotline where guests can order a variety of delicious traditional Neapolitan pizzas from 400 Gradi by award-winning Melbourne chef Johnny Di Francesco.

Mmmmm, Pizza. (Could do with one of those Big Red Phones right now!)

Families can dance the day away at P&O’s exclusive “family only deck party”, held in the afternoon so guests of all ages including children can enjoy the best of the ship’s music and entertainment.

P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said the indoor-outdoor entertainment area on Pacific Adventure was a new concept for the brand and matched how Aussie families are saying they want to holiday.

“We spend a lot of time listening to what our guests want from a cruise and have seen a growing demand for family-friendly entertainment areas where family groups can spend valuable time together,”
